Statistical highlights of England vs India 1st ODI 2022
- Jasprit Bumrah blew England’s top order away with his opening spell and then returned to the attack to register his best ODI bowling figures (six for 19) and set up India’s comfortable win by 10 wickets in the first ODI at The Oval.
- It is India’s 56th win against England in 104 ODIs between the teams.
- It’s also India’s first 10-wicket win against England in ODI cricket.
- Bumrah’s figures of 6/19 are the best by an Indian bowler against England, bettering Ashish Nehra’s six for 23 at the 2003 ODI World Cup.
- India captain Rohit Sharma won the toss and chose to field first on a muggy afternoon and in conditions conducive to swing and seam bowling.
- India’s new-ball bowlers, Mohammed Shami (3 for 31) and Bumrah, were on the money from the get-go. England batsmen’s technique was found out by the swinging ball and Bumrah, in particular, moved the ball both ways to induce edges and false shots.
- Jason Roy, Joe Root, Ben Stokes, and Liam Livingstone fell without troubling the scorers, while the in-form Jonny Bairstow fell for just 7. England were reduced to 26 for five and to 68 for eight later, staring at being bowled out for their lowest ODI total.
- Only a 35-run ninth-wicket partnership between David Willey and Brydon Carse took England past 100 runs before Bumrah returned to complete his five-wicket haul and polish off the tail.
- Chasing 111, India coasted to the target in 18.4 overs and won with 188 balls to spare. It is the 18th century partnership between Rohit (76*) and Shikhar Dhawan (31*) in 114 innings.
- Rohit’s knock was laden with typically eye-catching pulls and hooks for sixes (five of them) square of the wicket on the onside, while Dhawan was more sedate through his innings although he creamed a couple of cover drives for boundaries and hit the winning runs with a square cut for four.
- India’s victory is their 12th in 14 ODIs under Rohit’s captaincy.
