England have started their innings in the fourth One-Day International (ODI) and they are 15 for one loss in 4.1 overs. Alastair Cook and Alex Hales are batting in the middle. Hales was stuck on the crease and Bhuvneshwar Kumar got one through and was bowled. Hales went for six. Bhuvneshwar hasn’t conceded a run in 13 balls.

Bhuvneshwar Kumar started the innings and he got the ball to consistently shape away from Alastair Cook. Thus, Bhuvneshwar helped India start off with a maiden over. Dhawal Kulkarni started off proceedings at the other end. He was hit for a four off his first ball in international cricket. Alex Hales drove the first ball through cover for a four.

India have shown some good work in the field already. Suresh Raina made a good stop at third-slip and prevented a run. When Cook drove through the off-side, Ajinkya Rahane stopped it very well. Bhuvneshwar then bowled his second maiden in two overs. Cook got off the mark with a four over the slips as the cut went over the top. This happened off Kulkarni’s bowling. And then he bowled it a bit wide and was hit for another four.

Earlier, MS Dhoni won the toss and chose to bowl at Edgbaston. India were forced to make a change with Mohit Sharma being ruled out due to injury. Dhawal Kulkarni came in his place. England made quite a few changes. In came Gary Ballance, Moeen Ali and Harry Gurney came into the side. Ian Bell, James Tredwell and Ben Stokes.
