Yuvraj brought up his 50th ODI half-century to keep India’s hopes alive in the mammoth run chase against England in the first ODI at Rajkot. His knock has taken India to 176 for three in 30 overs.

Middle-order batsman Virat Kohli was dismissed caught behind by Craig Kieswetter off the bowling of Tim Bresnan in the 26th over as England begin fightback. This wicket reduced India to 138 for three.

Ajinkya Rahane and Gautam Gambhir were sent back to the pavilion by James Tredwell after both provided a solid start to India’s mammoth chase in the first ODI.

The duo made a solid start to India’s chase of a mammoth 326 in the first ODI at Rajkot. The duo added 66 runs in the first ten overs.

Kieswetter and Samit Patel piled on the misery in the final overs as they scored 62-unbeaten runs in the last six overs to take England to 325 for four in 50 overs.

Ashok Dinda picked up his second wicket of the game, as he sent back the other set batsman Kevin Pietersen as England were reduced to 225 for four in the first ODI at Rajkot.

Indian bowlers had briefly pulled things back after a wonderful start by England as they restricted the run flow and sent both the openers back to the pavilion.

Part-time bowler Suresh Raina gets rid of England captain Alastair Cook who gives an easy catch to Ajinkya Rahane in the first ODI at Rajkot. Cook scored 75 off just 83 deliveries.

Bell’s sparkling form continued as he brought up his half-century with a boundary in the 16th over as England moved to 82 for no loss in 16 overs against India in the first ODI at Rajkot.

Openers Cook and Bell made a solid start as they brought up their 50-run stand in the 10th over. Indian bowlers are still looking for their first breakthrough on a batting-friendly wicket at Rajkot.

England captain Cook won the toss and elected to bat against India in the first ODI at the new Saurashtra Cricket Association Stadium in Rajkot on Friday.

Despite losing the three-match ODI series against Pakistan, a consolation victory in the third and final ODI has give Dhoni & Co. the momentum ahead of the five-match ODI series against England.

Dhoni will also have one eye on the ICC ODI Rankings as a 5-0 victory in the series will take India to top spot. With criticism coming in from all quarters, Dhoni would love his team to come on top at the end of the series.

As far as England is concerned, this series will be a test of their number one ranking in ODIs. Currently they are marginally ahead of South Africa and will hope to stun the home side like they did during the Test series.

England have handed Joe Root his ODI debut while India have not included Cheteshwar Pujara, giving Ajinkya Rahane another chance at the top of the order.
