Online Cricket Betting – Free Tips | India vs England, 2021: 1st ODI

On Tuesday, the Maharashtra Cricket Association Stadium in Pune will host the first One-Day International between India and England.

Following a thrilling T20I series in Ahmedabad, India and England will play three One-Day Internationals in Pune. The hosts have won both the Test and T20I series. They will be looking to repeat the accomplishment in the ODIs.

Even though Virat Kohli and his teammates haven’t been in the best of form in the 50-over format, the presence of genuine stars like Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan should help them out. The Indians have high hopes after their bowling attack found their feet in the T20I series.

England will be looking to reclaim some lost pride with a solid performance in the One-Day Internationals. The English may want to align themselves with the ICC T20 World Cup conditions in just a few months away. There aren’t many new faces from the T20I side, though Liam Livingstone may make his debut with Joe Root unavailable for this series.

 

Weather 

There are no forecasts for rain in Pune. At the MCA Stadium, the temperature will be around 33 degrees Celsius. The humidity is expected to be approximately 15% during the match, and the sky will be partially cloudy.

 

Pitch 

The Maharashtra Cricket Association Stadium is known for producing high-scoring games, and Tuesday should be no exception. Despite the fact that the ball is likely to skid on beautifully to the bat, the pacers should get the ball moving early on. The spinners should have some support as the match progresses, making for an exciting middle-overs battle between bat and ball. After winning the toss, batting first would be the best option, though conditions shouldn’t change much throughout the game. At this venue, 270-280 runs are typical, though both teams can easily reach the 300-run mark.
