India vs England Prediction 1st ODI Preview
Team India Analysis
Rishabh Pant and Bhuvneshwar Kumar will both be in the eleven. On the eve of the match, Virat Kohli announced that Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan would open for India. He’ll have to make some pairing decisions. He’ll have to choose between playing an extra all-rounder and having a sixth bowling choice, or playing KL Rahul, who struggled in the T20I series, or giving Suryakumar Yadav his debut.
Team England Analysis
Stokes may be the slight favorite to move up the order after a quiet T20I series. England will declare their team at the toss, and they must decide who will bat at number three in the absence of Joe Root, who has been rested for this series. Due to Jofra Archer’s injury, Reece Topley may be given the opportunity to take over the ball. Liam Livingstone, Sam Billings, and Ben Stokes are among those who have expressed interest in the role.

What to expect in India vs England
Because there are two T20 World Cups before the next 50-over edition in 2023, both teams’ white-ball focus is currently on the shortest format. The T20I series that just ended had a lot riding on it because the T20 World Cup is just seven months away, but the three ODI matches that begin in Pune on Tuesday (March 23) are much less important in the grand scheme of things.
