Match Result: The match has been abandoned without a bowl being bowled. The umpires were willing to wait til 15:47pm local time (20:17 IST). But the heavy rain makes it impossible for the ground to be ready in time.

Oh boy…..The intensity of the rain has increased is what we hear. Meanwhile the skies have cleared out in London, where India women are playing England women.

For all the Sachin fans out there… Here is a rewind of the master’s heroics in World Cup 2003. Don’t forget to check out his six of Andy Caddick.

Its still raining heavily at Bristol and there play is still unlikely for another hour or so. Some of them have already lost hope of any play today. Don’t lose hope guys…Remember the Champions Trophy 2013 final?

Update: It has been raining all night at Bristol and the covers are still on. The toss has been delayed.

Time to say….


Hello and welcome to CricketCountry’s live blog of the first One-Day International (ODI) between India and England at Bristol. I am R Vishal and I will be bringing you the live updates of the match. After the 1-3 drubbing in Tests, Indian team has faced criticism from all sides. Moreover, the change in support staff and appointment of ‘Team Director’ Ravi Shastri has ensured that the visitors grabbed the headlines more often than the hosts. On Monday, India will have to keep aside all the chaos and look to perform in a format where they are ranked No 2.  Read the preview of the first ODI here

This series will kickstart the preparations for the ICC World Cup 2015 next year. India have some new faces in the team. Young, talented Sanju Samson and all-rounder Karn Sharma are part of the squad and pacer Dhawal Kulkarni too made it to the squad. It will be interesting to see whether India opt for new players. Here’s CricketCountry’s playing XI for the match

Indian openers? India though will be worrying about their opening pair. Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan are yet to fire since the home series against West Indies. They have averaged 23.60 in the 11 innings together. Read a detailed report 0n India’s possible opening combinations here.

Past record: India have a good track record at Bristol as they have won all their three games here. But on all the three occasions, it was Sachin Tendulkar who had made a mark, smashing two tons and a 99 in those three matches.

The England camp seems settled and Alastair Cook has already declared the inclusion of Ales Hales in the playing XI. Hales will add more positivity to the innings with his aggression. England also have the services of their lead pacer James Anderson. Ian Bell, Joe Root and Gary Ballance make up a formidable middle-order. Here’s an analysis of England’s possible batting line-up.

Key clashes: Though it’s a fresh start in the ODIs, there will be some key clashes to watch out for. Going by how Virat Kohli struggled against James Anderson, there’ll be no doubt who will come on to bowl when the India No 3 comes out to bat. Here are some key clashes to watch out for in the India vs England 1st ODI.


England: Alastair Cook (c), Alex Hales, Joe Root, Moeen Ali, Gary Ballance, Eoin Morgan, Ian Bell, Ben Stokes, Chris Woakes, Chris Jordan, James Anderson, Steven Finn, Harry Gurney, James Tredwell, Jos Buttler (wk).

India: MS Dhoni (c & wk), Shikhar Dhawan, Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli, Ajinkya Rahane, Suresh Raina, Ambati Rayudu, Sanju Samson (wk), Ravindra Jadeja, Karn Sharma, Ravichandran Ashwin, Dhawal Kulkarni, Umesh Yadav, Mohit Sharma, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Mohammad Shami, Stuart Binny.
