Commentary

England won by 9 runs | India Vs England Live Score, 1st ODI

That's all we have for you tonight. Hop over to the other tab to catch all the action from the second Test between South Africa and New Zealand. Till then, goodbye.
James Tredwell: 'If the batsman plays a good shot, then hard luck , but I was just executing my skills. Raina bowled pretty well and I just tried to copy him. We got wickets at the right time and that helped us. The batsmen while going for their shots might play into your hands. Most of the stadiums in India have been fantastic.'
James Tredwell is the Man of the Match.
Alastair Cook: 'It was a good win. Everyone in the dressing room is proud of it. We made the most of winning the toss. If one of the batsmen had gotten to a big hundred we could have gotten to 340, but Samit batted really well. To defend 325 on this pitch, it was a very good effort. India kept coming at us, but we picked wickets at the right time. Tredwell did well to take 4 wickets on that pitch. It's pretty much the same attack that we had in 2011. Hope the players can grow as the tour progresses.'
MS Dhoni: 'We should have got to the target. It was a fast outfield. Maybe I should have batted a few more overs. There was a situation in the middle when it looked like they would get to 340. The spinners bowled well. Yes, we were costly in the final overs, but this is a new batch of bowlers. If you don't get your yorkers right, they will make you pay. We did not convert the good starts properly. With me and Raina in the middle, it did look really easy, especially with the new rules. Once he got out, followed by me, it became difficult.'
India will look back at the last two overs which went for 38 runs. Apart from that, there was nothing much to separate between the teams. Except Kohli, all the recognised batsmen got going and looked like playing a big knock while they were in the middle. Yuvraj and Raina played gorgeous strokes, but got out at crucial junctures. Dhoni got the crowd going with 4 sixes, but hit one straight to the fielder. Indeed that was the story of the innings as most of the batsmen gifted away their wickets. For England, it was off-spinner James Tredwell who was a revelation as he brought up his best ODI figures. Dernbach was costly, but picked up the big wicket of Dhoni.

49.4 Jade Dernbach to Bhuvneshwar Kumar 1
1 run, yorker length delivery on middle, Bhuvneshwar can do nothing much but squeeze it back to the bowler who tries to stop, but can't. The ball hits the stumps at the non-strier end and the batsmen cross for single
49.3 Jade Dernbach to Ishant Sharma 1
1 run, full and outside off, Ishant goes for the drive, gets a thick outside edge. Kieswetter does well as he dives to his right and gets a hand to it, saves a certain boundary. Single taken.
49.2 Jade Dernbach to Ishant Sharma 0
