The ongoing 1st One Day International saw India’s complete dominance against England in the first innings of the match. After the hosts were invited to bat first, England batters put in a below-par performance in Infront of India’s top-notch quality bowling. England’s four quality batters getting out on a duck was a testimony of India’s lethal pace attack in the first ODI.
India’s pace spearhead Jasprit Bumrah delivered top-notch stuff in the first innings as he clinched six wickets at the Kennington Oval stadium in London. He dismissed the likes of Jason Roy (0 off 5), Jonny Bairstow (7 off 20), Joe Root (0 off 2), Liam Livingstone (0 off 8), David Willey (21 off 26) and Brydon Carse (15 off 26). While Bumrah wreaked havoc on England’s batting line-up, Mohammed Shami too joined the party as he clinched three wickets in the game getting rid of Ben Stokes (0 off 1), skipper Jos Buttler (30 off 32) and Craig Overton (8 off 7).
In response to England’s 110, India had a steady start to their innings as Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan provide a solid start to the hosts. While both the batters were looking in good touch and played some cracking shots all-around, one of Rohit’s maximum went on to hit a little girl in the crowd. The unfortunate incident happened in the 5th over of the second innings as David Willey bowled a short ball, which Rohit hooked for a six on the leg side.
But as the camera panned towards the crowd, a man was seen taking a little girl in his arms to check on her as she cried her heart out after being hit by the blow. The incident paused the game for a few minutes as Rohit and other players in the middle looked concerned about the incident. Even Team England’s medical team rushed to the girl to check her well-being.
