Weather at Pune: The SportsRush presents for you the detailed weather prediction for the first India vs England ODI.
During the first ODI of the ongoing England’s tour of India in Pune, England captain Eoin Morgan’s decision of winning the toss and electing to field hasn’t gone down well as the Indian top-order has continued its domination in the format.
England’s new-ball bowling pair of Mark Wood and Sam Curran did bowled a few economical overs initially. However, once Shikhar Dhawan and Rohit Sharma managed to counter the swing with the new ball, run-scoring didn’t look like a daunting task for them.
Sharma (28), played a rash shot to edge a Ben Stokes delivery behind the wickets but his dismissal didn’t deter Dhawan from playing his shots especially after getting his eye in.
With Dhawan putting together a 105-run partnership for the second wicket alongside captain Virat Kohli (56), he has put India in a position from where they should cross the 300-run mark without much discomfort in addition to him scoring a century himself.
5⃣6⃣ off 6⃣0️⃣ balls!
