Virat Kohli and Kedar Jadhav added 200 for the fifth wicket AFP

India prevailed over England in a topsy-turvy day of cricket in the first ODI of the three-match series at Maharashtra Cricket Association Stadium, Pune on January 15, 2017. England posted a massive 350 for 7 their highest against India thanks to fifties from Jason Roy (73), Joe Root (78), and Ben Stokes (62). India were soon reduced to 63 for 4, but Virat Kohli (122) and Kedar Jadhav (120) added exactly 200 for the fifth wicket to turn the match on its head. After both fell in quick succession, Hardik Pandya (40*) ensured there were no hiccups en route India s win.

This was India s 458th ODI win. They are now at par with Pakistan, who had registered their 458th win earlier in the day. Only Australia (551) the side Pakistan beat today have won more ODIs.

This was India s 274th win at home, 51st against England, 30th against England at home, and 1st at Maharashtra Cricket Association Stadium, Pune.

India won the match by 3 wickets, their joint-closest margin of victory at home batting second against England. They have won by 2 wickets twice, at Lord s in 2002 and at The Oval in 2007.

This was the joint fourth-highest target chased down successfully in ODIs and the highest against any side other than Australia. Here is the list:

Highest totals successfully chased in ODIs

435 438/9 49.5 South Africa Australia Johannesburg 2005-06
372 372/6 49.2 South Africa Australia Durban 2016-17

This was the second ODI at Maharashtra Cricket Association Stadium, Pune. Australia had won the previous match, on October 13, 2013, by 72 runs. The ground has also hosted 2 T20Is.

The match saw most runs (668) and sixes (23) in an ODI between India and England.

Eoin Morgan became the 11th English captain to lead in an ODI on Indian soil. The first was Keith Fletcher, back in 1981-82.

Only four cricketers from the current England side Morgan, Root, Jos Buttler, and Chris Woakes had played ODIs in India before.

The last time MS Dhoni played an ODI under another captain was way back on September 8, 2007. Rahul Dravid led India on that occasion.

Yuvraj Singh had played his last ODI on December 11, 2013, while Ravichandran Ashwin played his exactly a year ago, on January 15, 2016.

Stokes smashed the fastest fifty for an England batsman against India, off a mere 33 balls. Incidentally, Roy s fifty had come off 36 balls.

Stokes 5 sixes are the joint-most by an Englishman against India. Dimitri Mascarenhas (twice) and Ravi Bopara are the only others to have done this.

England hit 11 sixes today, their most in an innings against India. They had hit 9 at Rajkot in 2008-09. The most for England remains 16 (against Pakistan at Trent Bridge in 2016), while the most by any side remains 20 (by South Africa, at Mumbai in 2015-16).

Roy hit 12 fours in his innings. Curiously, Mike Gatting had done the same in the same city, back in 1984-85, though that was at Nehru Stadium.

Dhoni stumped Roy off Ravindra Jadeja and caught Morgan off Pandya today. This took his dismissals against England to 50. Only Adam Gilchrist (64) and Kumar Sangakkara (57) have more victims against England. Dhoni s 15 stumpings are also the most by anyone against England.

England scored 350 for 7 despite nobody scoring a hundred. This was the sixth such instance in 50-over matches.

The highest partnership for England s total of 350 for 7 was the 6th-wicket stand of 73 between Stokes and Moeen Ali. This was the highest score by any side without a stand worth 75. The previous highest score for any side without a 75-run stand was by West Indies: the biggest stand in their 329 for 9 against Sri Lanka at Bulawayo earlier this season had was 70.

England s 350 for 7 was both their highest against India anywhere and their highest against any side on Indian soil. Their previous best for both, 338 for 8, came during their famous tied encounter against India in World Cup 2011, at Bengaluru.

Batting first, England s previous highest score against India was 334 for 4, at Lord s in the first match of the 1975 World Cup. Their best against India in India was 325 for 4 at Rajkot in 2012-13, while their best against any side in India was 327 for 8, against Ireland at Bengaluru in 2010-11.

Ashwin finished with figures of 8-0-63-0. His economy rate of 7.87 was his worst in any match where he had bowled 8 or more overs. His previous worst of 7.55 came against Australia at Perth in 2015-16, where he had figures of 9-0-68-2.

Jasprit Bumrah, too, had his most expensive day by far. His economy rate of 7.90 (10-0-79-2) was significantly poorer than his previous worst of 5.37 (9.4-0-52-2 against New Zealand at Mohali in 2016-17).

This was the seventh time that three Englishmen scored fifties in the same ODI innings against India. The previous instance came at Mohali on January 23, 2013.

Root s fifty was the 18th of his career, Stokes was his 7th. Roy s was his 6th.

Shikhar Dhawan and KL Rahul become the 137th pair to open batting for India in ODIs. Rahul is Dhawan s sixth ODI opening partner (after Murali Vijay, Parthiv Patel, Rohit Sharma, Cheteshwar Pujara, and Ajinkya Rahane), while Dhawan is Rahul s third (after Karun Nair and Faiz Fazal).

Kohli smashed his 27th ODI hundred. Only Sachin Tendulkar (49), Ricky Ponting (30), and Sanath Jayasuriya (28) have more.

Kohli also has 17 ODI hundreds batting second, coming at par with Tendulkar. Nobody else has more than 11.

However, Kohli now has most ODI hundreds (15) in successful chases. He went past Tendulkar s 14.

Jadhav registered his highest ODI score. His previous best of unbeaten 105 came against Zimbabwe, at Harare in 2015.

Jadhav reached his hundred in a mere 65 balls. Only Kohli (twice, in 52 and 61 balls), Virender Sehwag (60 balls), Mohammad Azharuddin (62), and Yuvraj (64) have scored quicker ODI hundreds among Indians.

Jadhav also registered the highest score by an Indian No. 6 against England. He went past Dhoni s 87. Jadhav s 120 is also the fourth-highest by any Indian No. 6 (after Kapil Dev, 175*; Dhoni, 139*; and Yusuf Pathan, 123*) and second-best by any No. 6 against England (after Denesh Ramdin, 128).

Kohli and Jadhav added exactly 200 for the fifth wicket. This is the fifth-highest ODI stand for the fifth wicket, after 256* (David Miller and JP Duminy), 226* (Morgan and Bopara), 223 (Azhar and Ajay Jadeja), and 220 (Andrew Symonds and Michael Clarke).

This was the second time that two Indians scored hundreds in the same innings against England, after Sehwag (126) and Sourav Ganguly (117*) at Premadasa in the 2002 Champions Trophy.

Kohli s 122 is the fourth-highest score by an Indian against England, after Yuvraj (138*), Navjot Sidhu (134*), and Sehwag (126). Jadhav s 120 is joint fifth, along with Tendulkar.

Jadhav and Kohli batted for only 147 balls, getting their runs at an astonishing 8.16. Among all double-hundred partnerships where balls faced have been recorded, this is the fourth-fastest. Only Jayasuriya and Upul Tharanga (twice: 286 runs at 8.98 and 201 at 8.31) and Gautam Gambhir and Sehwag (201* at 8.55) have added over 200 at a quicker rate.

Kohli hit 5 sixes today, the joint second-most by an Indian against England, after Yuvraj (6) and at par with Tendulkar. With 4 sixes, Jadhav comes next.

India hit 12 sixes today, their second-most against England. They had hit 13 at Rajkot in 2008-09.

Jadhav got his 120 at a strike rate of 157.9, the second-highest for any Indian against England. Only Yuvraj (138* at 176.9) had more.

This was only the fourth time that India s Nos. 6 to 9 all reached double-figures against England.

India s 356 for 7 were their second-highest total against England, after 387 for 5 at Rajkot in 2008-09. This was also India s highest total against England batting second.

Jake Ball s economy rate of 6.70 (10-0-67-3) are his most expensive figures. He had gone for 5.50 an over (his previous worse) twice in his career.

Adil Rashid s economy rate of 10 (5-0-50-0) were his worst as well, overhauling his 8-0-75-1 (9.37).

Stokes returned figures of 10-0-73-2. These are his second-most worst figures when he had bowled his complete quota of overs, after his 10-0-74-1 against Australia at Brisbane in 2014-15.

Pandya became the fourth Indian to score over 40 runs, take 2 wickets, and hold a catch against England in an ODI, after Sandeep Patil, Madan Lal, and Yuvraj. Of them, Patil and Pandya are the only ones to have a strike rate over 100 and an economy rate below 6.
