Stunning fielding from England
"They have saved at least 12-15 runs in the 10-12 deliveries" says L Shivaramakrishnan in the commentary after Tom Curran dives to stop a boundary. The England inner-ring fielders have been brilliant.

Another tight over from Sam Curran
Sam Curran has been brilliant with the new ball so far, another tight over from him. Only two singles from it. The good things from India's point of view is that they haven't lost a wicket. They can surely make up for the slow start later on.

Tough chance goes down
That shouldn't really go down as a drop catch. It was firmly hit by Dhawan, Jason Roy at point flew to his left, got both hands to it, but the force of the ball didn't allow him to hold on. He saved four runs nonetheless.

Physio out to attend Rohit again
Rohit Sharma is a not a 100% ever since he was hit on the elbow by a Wood delivery. Now his getting a strapping done on his right elbow. For now, he has decided to carry on batting.
MAR 23, 2021 02:07 PM IST
Dhawan shows his class
Back to back boundaries from Shikhar Dhawan's bat. One off the back foot and one off the front but both through the off-side. This couple of boundaries against Mark Wood will give a lot of confidence to Dhawan.
MAR 23, 2021 02:03 PM IST
Rohit breaks the shackles
FOUR! Something had to come and it came from Rohit's bat. A scoop over fine leg to collect his first boundary of the day and more importantly it gives India breathing space after a really quiet start to the innings. India 15/0 after 6 overs.
MAR 23, 2021 02:01 PM IST
Another big appeal
Nothing from the umpire, nothing from Eoin Morgan. But another good delivery from Sam Curran. It cam back in to the left hander, hit him high on the pads, perhaps that is why England didn't go for the review. Curran has settled into a nice rhythm.
MAR 23, 2021 01:55 PM IST
Rohit hit on the elbow
Ouch! That must have stung. It was a 148 kmph delivery from Mark Wood and it hit Rohit right on his unprotected right elbow. There was immediate grimace on his face. We have the physio out in the middle.
MAR 23, 2021 01:51 PM IST
Maiden from Sam Curran
Nice lengths, nice lines and a hint of away movement in most of the deliveries - Sam Curran bowls a maiden. Credit to Dhawan too for not flirting with danger. India 10/0 after 4 overs.
MAR 23, 2021 01:46 PM IST
England get another new ball
Well, this is new. The ball in Wood's hands was only 10 balls old but it has already got a hole in it so the umpires have decided to hand over a new ball to England.
MAR 23, 2021 01:45 PM IST
Dhawan is away
FOUR! Short and wide outside off stump from Wood, this is bread and butter for Dhawan, he can hit them for four in his sleep. Punches it away through the gap between point and covers and it races away for the first boundary of the Indian innings. India 9/0 after 3.4 overs.
MAR 23, 2021 01:39 PM IST
Shikhar Dhawan off the mark
A gentle loosener from Curran outside off stump, just the kind of ball a batsman dreams of at the start of his innings, Dhawan taps it to third man for a single and open his account.
MAR 23, 2021 01:38 PM IST
Sam Curran starts well
Wow what a good first delivery from Sam Curran. He just got that one to come back in at Rohit and he missed it. It hit him on the front pad, there was a huge appeal, the umpire shook his head and Eoin Morgan decided against taking a review.
MAR 23, 2021 01:36 PM IST
Good over from Wood
That's a very good first over from Mark Wood. Hard lengths at good pace, just what you expect from him. Only 1 run off it. India 1/0 after being sent in by England.
MAR 23, 2021 01:35 PM IST
Rohit, India off the mark
Just a nice tap on the on-side from Rohit Sharma. Shikhar Dhawan was aware to steal a quick single. First runs for India in the first ODI.
MAR 23, 2021 01:32 PM IST

MAR 23, 2021 12:43 PM IST
India need to stop Jason Roy early
Jason Roy has a fantastic record against India. In T20I series too, he threatened to take the game away from India on more than one occasions, therefore it is imperative for Virat Kohli and Co. to get Roy's wicket early. The England opener has been severe against Yuzvendra Chahal but if Bhuvneshwar can another one to to swing back in early like he did in the 5th T20I, Roy might have problems to deal with it.
MAR 23, 2021 12:39 PM IST
Bhuvneshwar needs to carry form of T20Is into ODIs
Bhuvneshwar will be playing an ODI after a gap of more than 18 months. His last ODI was against West Indies at Port of Spain in 2019. So far, Bhuvneshwar has played 114 ODIs with 132 wickets from it at the average of 34.60 and with the economy of 5.02. Though, Bhuvneshwar has the worst numbers against England as compared to other opposing teams in his career, he has a decent economy of 5.00 against England in ODIs.
What will be encouraging as far as India are concerned is Bhuvneshwar's form in the T20Is. He was Player of the Match in the last T20I.

Jofra Archer's injury a big blow to England
Jofra Archer has been ruled out of the three-match ODI series with an elbow injury which had also forced him to sit out from a couple of Test matches in India. With Joe Root already not being there, Archer's injury comes as a big blow to England, who are yet to register a series win in this tour having already lost the Tests and T20I series. The onus will be on Mark Wood and Sam Curran to handle the new ball for England.
MAR 23, 2021 12:24 PM IST
Where will KL Rahul bat?
Now this is an interesting debate. India captain Virat Kohli has already confirmed that Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan will open the batting for India in the first ODI. That leaves either No.4 or No.5 for KL Rahul. Rahul did bat at No.5 in ODIs when he was keeping wickets and Rishabh Pant was not in the side but with Pant back, it is unlikely he will bat lower than No.6, which means Rahul might once again slide down to No.5 in the first ODI today.
MAR 23, 2021 12:16 PM IST
Suryakumar or Shreyas?
It's a difficult choice but then again which choice is easy if you are an Indian captain? Suryakumar Yadav has is in the form of his life and has shown enough signs to make everyone believe that is ready for international cricket and take over the No.4 spot. But the incumbent Shreyas Iyer has done nothing wrong to lose his spot. He was pretty good in the T20I series and has been a solid batsman at No.4 even in the ODIs.
MAR 23, 2021 11:58 AM IST
Who will be India's spinner?
With Kuldeep Yadav, Yuzvendra Chahal, Washington Sundar and Krunal vying for a spot, who will India play in the first ODI? Looks like Chahal could get a game.
