IND vs ENG: India crushed England in the first ODI by 10 wickets on Tuesday and took a 1-0 lead in the series. Skipper, Rohit Sharma won the toss and invited England to bat first. Riding on a sensational spell from Jasprit Bumrah, India bundled England out for just 110 runs at the end of the first innings in the first ODI on Tuesday at the Kennington Oval ground in London. Bumrah started wonderfully and, once again, denied England of getting a good start.

Jason Roy’s struggle continued on Tuesday as he got out on a duck to help Bumrah get his first wicket of the day. One ball later, he had Joe Root edged the ball through to the keeper.

England’s new Test skipper, Ben Stokes got out on a golden duck with one beauty of a delivery from Mohammed Shami as England lost three wickets for just 7 runs in 2.4 overs. Jonny Bairstow’s stay (7 off 20) also ended in the 6th over as Bumrah had him caught behind to pick his third wicket of the day. Liam Livingstone became England’s fourth batter to get out on a duck as Bumrah cleaned him up in the 8th over of the innings. England lost half of their side for just 26 runs on the board.

Bumrah later picked his fifth and sixth wicket only to bundle England out for a paltry score of 110 runs on the board.

Jasprit Bumrah returned with an exceptional bowling spell of 6 for 19 in 7.2 overs. India needed 111 runs to win the first ODI and take a 1-0 lead in the three-match series.

Rohit Sharma and Co. didn’t have any trouble chasing down the score. Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan reached the target with ease in just 18.4 overs. Rohit Sharma played an outstanding unbeaten knock of 76 runs in 58 balls, including 6 fours and 5 sixes. On the other hand, Shikhar Dhawan smashed 31 runs in 54 balls on his return to ODI cricket.

With that win, India has taken a 1-0 lead in the series. The second ODI is slated to be played on Thursday at Lord’s in London.
