India vs England 1st ODI: Playing 11 prediction

The one-day series played between India and England is part of the ICC Cricket World Super League, which is known as the One Day Super League. Apart from the hosts, the top seven teams in the ICC ODI Super League will automatically qualify for the ICC World Cup 2023 to be held in India.

A 3-match ODI series will now be played between India and England . The first ODI of the series will be played at the Maharashtra Cricket Association Stadium in Pune on Tuesday. A day before the match, Team India captain Virat Kohli confirmed that Shikhar Dhawan would come out with Rohit Sharma to open the inning.

The news is good for Shikhar Dhawan as he lost his place in the playing eleven in the T20I series against England due to poor performance. India made several changes in the openings in the T20I series. During this, Virat Kohli was also seen opening with Rohit in the fifth and final T20I match of the series.


Rohit and Dhawan will start the innings for the Indian team in the first ODI against England. Virat will land at number three, while Shreyas Iyer may get preference over Suryakumar Yadav at number four. Rishabh Pant at number five and all-rounder Hardik Pandya at number six can land. Krunal Pandya and Yuzvendra Chahal may get a chance to replace Washington Sundar and Kuldeep Yadav. The pace bowling will be led by Bhuvneshwar Kumar, who made a comeback in the T20I series after recovering from injury. T Natarajan and Shardul Thakur can join the playing eleven as the second and third pacers.
