After securing the T20I series against England, India is taking on England in the 1st ODI at The Oval. And India’s wicket-keeper Rishabh Pant already stole the show with his brilliant catch to dismiss Ben Stokes.
Indian captain Rohit Sharma has won the toss and put the hosts to bat first. Indian bowlers stepped up to prove their captain’s decision correct. Jasprit Bumrah gave an outstanding start and picked up Jason Roy and Joe Root in his first over.
But the English team got a huge blow when Md. Shami picked up their test captain Ben Stokes with a beautiful in swinging delivery. Rishabh Pant completed a brilliant one handed diving catch to dismiss Stokes.
The Indian keeper has shown noticeable improvement in his keeping skills over last few years. Today also he set an example by taking a mind-blowing catch. Hence Ben Stokes had to return to the pavilion on a golden duck.
England’s batting lineup couldn’t get over this and faced a collapse. England has reached only 68 with the loss of 8 wickets. Captain Jos Buttler is the highest scorer for the team till now with 30 runs who was also dismissed by Md. Shami. After the loss in Edgbaston Test the Indian team has made a remarkable comeback in the limited over series. If the bowlers can deliver with the same rhythm it will be another series win over Three Lions on their home soil.
