Jasprit Bumrah routed the top order as India thrashed 50-over world champions England by 10 wickets in the first One-day International here at The Oval on Tuesday.
Fast bowler Bumrah took a career-best 6-19 as the hosts were dismissed for just 110 in 25.2 overs.
After winning the toss favourably, India’s skipper Rohit Sharma scored an unbroken 76. This is before Shikhar Dhawan reaches 31 not out. The visitors reached 114-0 with more than 31 overs remaining.
With the victory, India, who will host the 2023 World Cup, now leads the three-match series 1-0. The second ODI will is fixed to be played at Lord’s on Thursday.
Jasprit Jasbirsingh Bumrah bowled a four-wicket opening burst in five overs. This time it was against England, which may have had their best batting lineup at this level since winning the 2019 World Cup final.
This is one of the very few occasions that England skipped making much significant impact with their batting line-up. Against Australia at Old Trafford in 2001, they averted the humiliation of being removed for less than their all-time worst completed ODI total of 86.
But an innings featuring four ducks in the top six — Jason Roy, Joe Root, Ben Stokes, and Liam Livingstone were all out ducks — saw England bowled out with nearly half of their 50 overs remaining.
Bumrah, 28, returned to clean up Brydon Carse and David Willey to surpass the only other five-wicket haul of his 71-match ODI career — 5-27 against Sri Lanka at Pallekelle five years ago.
Muhammed Shami 🚀
Mohammed Shami took 3-31 in seven overs. He became the fastest Indian and joint-third fastest to 150 ODI wickets in matches played on his 80th appearance.
Only four players in England’s innings reached double digits. These includes the skipper Jos Buttler leading the way with 30 and Willey reaching 21. This was England’s sixth 10-wicket loss in an ODI, and it was also their worst home loss when batting first.
Since taking over as England’s full-time white-ball captain in place of Eoin Morgan, Buttler has now lost three of his last four games. When Roy played on in an attempt to drive Bumrah’s fourth ball of the day, the mood was set. While Root was defeated by a Bumrah delivery that lifted off a decent length two balls later.
And in the next over Test captain, Stokes fell for a golden duck when an inside edge off Shami was brilliantly caught by diving wicket-keeper Rishabh Pant.
