Pune: After a rather easy warm-up match against England three days ago, Indian players and management might have stopped worrying about the first India vs England ODI match set to be played in Pune tomorrow. There is no denying that India is a favorite to win the match. Nonetheless, despite the loss in the second warm-up match, England had won the first warm up match, the last match that was played under Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s captaincy.
Now as the first India vs England 2017 one day international match is being played under the leadership of swashbuckling captain Virat Kohli, who has been leading the Indian test side as well, expectations are very high from the team. Kohli is a very aggressive captain on the field and cannot be intimidated by his rivals.
Under his leadership the Indian team is doing rather exceptionally well and has won the last several test series. On the contrary, the ODI team led by Dhoni was struggling and struggling.
Though England are not favourites to win the ODI series, they remain a potent side and can be a major threat to any team on any given day. Despite their loss in the just concluded test series, India will be an outright fool to take them lightly.
There is no denying that England have been an excellent ODI side and have batting match-winners all the way down. Which is why they keep coming at you with the big shots, the switch hits and the reverse-sweeps. India will look to bat more clinically, relying as they do on a smaller base of batsmen, especially given Rohit Sharma’s absence. Either way there will be runs. A lot of them.
A report while talking about what sorts of pitch will be advantageous to the two sides says, “The pitches for ODIs, though, are generally flat. And India wouldn’t necessarily want too much help for the spinners: they wouldn’t want to be chasing 250 on turning pitches, as demonstrated in the defeats against New Zealand in Delhi and Ranchi, and Adil Rashid cannot be underestimated in ODIs. Early starts to the matches – 1.30pm as opposed to 2.30pm in earlier years – should make dew and the toss less of a factor. Hopefully”. Nonetheless, there can be no guarantee as opposition comes loaded with very gifted spinners and pacers.
In the meantime Virat Kohli is excited with new responsibilities and hopes the team will do well under him in the coming days. “I was actually pretty delighted to be given the captaincy for all the three formats. It adds to the responsibility and makes you a better player, a better person; that’s something I have always liked that aspect of captaincy”, says he.
