The India vs England ODI is a series of day-night matches played behind closed doors due to rising Covid-19 cases in the Pune region. As for the pitch at the Maharashtra, it’s usually on the slower side which should assist the spinners.
India’s squad for the ODI series included a couple of debutants who have already made their mark. Krunal Pandya and Prasidh Krishna both made vital contributions in the 1st match as England collapsed after a strong start that saw them clock up 135
without loss. Virat Kohli captains India, assisted by vice-captain Rohit Sharma.
Having lost the 2021 Test series 3-1 and the T20I series 3-2, England would have liked to restore some pride with a strong start to the ODI. That wasn’t to be, but there’s plenty to play for in the 2nd match of the series. This ODI is part of the ICC cricket world Super League, meaning it’ll help decide the teams for the ICC ODI World Cup in 2023.
The latest team news? The absence of T20I captain Joe Root (being rested) and fast bowler Jofra Archer (recovering from an elbow injury) has left a massive hole in the England set-up.
“If Joe isn’t around we need to be good enough to adapt,” said England Jonny Bairstow after his side slumped to 251 all out in the 1st ODI. “We are good enough as a team, as a batting unit, to get over the line. We didn’t and that will have hurt the guys.”
The 2nd ODI starts at 8am UK time on Friday, 26th March. Read on below to find out how you can watch the 1st India vs England ODI live stream from anywhere in the world.
