IND vs ENG ODI Series: After T20, Team India’s eyes are now on the ODI series. Virat’s play is doubtful. After registering a 2-1 win in the three-match T20 series, Team India will now be eyeing to dominate the hosts with a win when they take on England in the first ODI on Tuesday.
Under the leadership of Rohit Sharma, the young players of Team India have been impressed with their performance so far on the field of England. Star batsman Virat Kohli, who has been battling consistently poor form, looks suspicious to play in the first ODI. Virat suffered a growing injury during the third T20 match, although the team management has not confirmed his injury. But he can be given a break from the first ODI.
Shikhar Dhawan will return in the opening
Batsman Shikhar Dhawan will return to Team India through the ODI series. He played the last ODI match in February this year. With the arrival of Dhawan, the team management will have many options in the opening. Ishaan Kishan is already present on the team.
Generally the pitch here is considered helpful for the batsmen. Here the team winning the toss prefers to bowl first. However, the pitch slows down a bit in the second innings, which helps the spinners.
The captain targeted the experts
Rohit said they do not know what is happening inside the team, and questions cannot be raised on Kohli’s level. India captain Rohit Sharma took a jibe at experts who questioned Virat Kohli’s place in the T20 team, saying the star batsman’s status cannot be doubted and the team management will continue to support him. Kohli has failed to score a century in any format after November 2019. Experts like Indian captain Kapil Dev and former England captain Michael Vaughan have questioned Kohli’s long-running poor form. Responding to this, Rohit said that experts do not know what is happening inside the team. You cannot question a top-class batsman.
Not paying attention to outside things
Rohit said it is not difficult for us at all because we do not pay attention to outside things. Also, I don’t know who are these experts and why are they called experts, I don’t understand. They are seeing things from the outside.
Team India: The middle-order strong contender scored a century in the last match against England
After scoring a scintillating century, Suryakumar’s place in the T20 World Cup team was confirmed. Middle-order batsman Suryakumar Yadav presented his strong claim for the ICC T20 World Cup in the third and final match played against England on Sunday. Surya made incredible shots all around the field during his innings and entertained the audience. With this innings, Suryakumar strengthened his claim as the number four batsman of Team India in the World Cup.
Surprising Shots: The Indian team, chasing England’s target of 216 runs was not getting off to a good start. But then Surya came to the crease and he hit amazing shots without any pressure. Surya was playing like a child at Trent Bridge. He scored 117 runs in 55 balls. However, during this, he made five shots in which there was a risk.
