India vs England LIVE Cricket Score 1st ODI, IND VS ENG Live: All eyes will be on former Indian skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni when India will take on England at Trent Bridge, Nottingham on Thursday for the first match of the series. The Chennai Super Kings skipper is only 33 runs away from becoming the fourth Indian and 12th overall to score more than 10,000 ODI runs. He is also three catches away from becoming the first Indian wicketkeeper to take 300 catches in the 50-over format.
Coming to the teams, there is little to choose between the two heavyweights of limited overs’ cricket. While England have won 10 of their last 12 bilateral series, India have emerged victorious from last nine. The series is likely to be a graveyard for the bowlers as 8 of the top 20 batsmen in ICC rankings will be on the show.
The two sides had met last time in 2017 in India where the hosts had emerged victorious by 2-1. However, it will be a new test for Virat Kohli and team as the English team has improved a lot since then and is coming off a 6-0 win against Australia. Indian spinners may play an important role in deciding the series as there might be some nervous pace bowlers in both camps.
