India claimed a stunning 8-wicket victory over England at Trent Bridge to take a 1-0 series lead
Rohit Sharma scored his 18th ODI century and captain Virat Kohli hit 75, but the star of the show was Kuldeep Yadav.
Kuldeep claimed the best figures by a spinner in a one-day international in England to set India on the way to a massive 8-wicket victory. He repeated the dose of the T20I – removing two of England’s Test mainstays, Joe Root and Jonny Bairstow, in the same over.
His 6-25, also the best figures by a left-arm spinner in any ODI, shot England out for 268 at Trent Bridge.
The tourists chased down the target with ease with Rohit Sharma’s unbeaten 137 and 75 from India captain Virat Kohli. They shared 167 as the visitors cruised over the line with eight wickets and almost 10 overs to spare.
India, who have already won the Twenty20 series 2-1, can take victory in the three-match series at Lord’s on Saturday.

Edgbaston will host the opening Test of the series against India, starting at 11am on Wednesday Aug 1, 2018.
India have been in scintillating form claiming a IT20 series victory over England and now securing a comprehensive victory in the first match of the ODI series.
However, England always fancy their chances at Fortress Edgbaston and have won a remarkable 8 matches in a row at their favourite ground. This will be their biggest challenge yet as India are in fine form and are also the number one ranked Test side in the world. Joe Root and the England boys will need all the support possible to help them secure a win in this clash. It’s heating up nicely for the main Test series of the summer and we can’t wait!
