India vs England 1st ODI Live Cricket Score,Streaming, Highlights
The first ODI between India vs England will be played at the Rajiv Gandhi International Cricket Stadium in Hyderabad on Friday, October, 14, 2011.
This series has already been touted as a revenge series for India after the humiliation of a complete whitewash they suffered in England recently. But this venue is not a ideal place to start for them, because India are yet to win a ODI at this venue!
India are playing three seamers and R Ashwin is the lone specialist spinner. The final players are as below:
India XI: Gambhir, Parthiv, Rahane, Kohli, Dhoni, Raina, Jadeja, Ashwin, Praveen, Vinay, Umesh Yada.
England XI: Cook, Kieswetter, Trott, KP, Bopara, Bairstow, Patel, Bresnan, Swann, Finn and Dernbach.
Alistair Cook got off to a dream start as a captain in his first ODI series, but this one will test him a lot more. He said on the eve of the match, 'What's gone is gone and we are totally off it. This is a new series and everyone knows how strong India are at home.'
Its important for the England batsmen to adapt to the slow and low Indian tracks. Their squad has many members who have not played a single game in India and that is a challenge they will be looking forward to.
The highlights will be uploaded here after the game is over.
