1st ODI: India cruise to eight-wicket win over England

India's captain Virat Kohli and India's Yuzvendra Chahal celebrate after Chahal bowls England's Joe Root during the international Twenty20 cricket match between England and India at Sophia Gardens in Cardiff

The first ODI got off to an unexpectedly dominant start for India as they were in full control of the game after the first wicket fell for the English after a strong start in the powerplay. But, with only a day's gap between the two matches, it hasn't worked out in England's favour who have their task cut out once again after going down by eight wickets in the series opener.

Although a disciplined Indian bowling attack jolted the hosts at regular intervals, Root kept England sailing as he was involved in a couple of valuable partnerships with Eoin Morgan and David Willey, both of whom posted half-centuries.

Chasing 269 to win, Indian batsmen led by Rohit's 137 off 114 balls and skipper Virat Kohli's 75 to seal the deal with 59 balls to spare.

"He's been a massive run scorer for England in all formats".

In 2004, a devastating magnitude 9.3 undersea quake off the coast of the western Indonesian island of Sumatra triggered tsunamis. The number of casualties could increase as data was still being collected from other locations on the island, he said.

Ever since 1974, India have so far played 940 ODIs in which they have won 484, lost 409, tied 7 and 40 matches ended without any result. Siddharth Kaul (0/59) and Suresh Raina (0/18, 2 overs) remained wicket-less.

Kuldeep has claimed that video analysis is a big mistake, raising questions over its effectiveness, so it will be an exciting contest for sure to see who will prevail. Dhoni's inability to keep up with the run rate had hurt the team most in the final overs. After an emphatic win at Trent Bridge, India suffered a awful loss at the Lord's.

Similarly, third-ranked South Africa face the challenge of blanking Sri Lanka 5-0 in an away series to ensure they do not slip behind New Zealand even as mid-table sides Bangladesh (seventh), Sri Lanka (eighth) and the West Indies (ninth) will be vying for important points during this period.

Kuldeep accounted for key men Jason Roy, Jonny Bairstow and Morgan, in another fine day's work, boasting serious turn, drift and variety aplenty.

"In the previous year or so we have played some good cricket, in and out of India, this tour brings another challenge for us".

"India are a very good measure of where we are at".

They looked to play him out and that approach helped them win the 2nd T20I as Kuldeep did not pick up a wicket and went for a fair few runs.
