Ind vs Eng 1st ODI Prediction

India is on tour to England. The team is scheduled to play a test, 3 T20s and 3 ODIs. The test is being won by the guests and the first two T20s are grabbed by Indians. After this T20 series, the 50-over match will start on 12 July. The teams will encounter at the famous stadium of Oval. It will start at 05:00 pm.


Team India had been marvelous in the T20 series. Though it could have created problems for the batters at the pitches of England yet the blue shirts have proved every prophecy wrong. Every analysis against the blue shirts is put down by the team. Not only batters, but the bowlers are using the pitch in the best of utilizations.

The Indian team as a whole is performing well. Hardik Pandya has comd up as an excellent allrounder in T20. He grabbed 4 wickets and scored 51 in just 33 balls and got the award of Man of the Match in 1st T20. Bhwanseh Kumar also showed excellent bowling in the series. Jadeja missed 1st T20 but he proved his worth in the 2nd match. He scored 46 in just 29 balls and remained not out. Rohit Sharma is also scoring well for the team but as per experts, he is not playing his original game. He may come up in the ODI series with his original game.


As per the analysis of the BETJEE, the players who can perform in the team may be Hardik Pandya, Shikhar Dhawan and  Suryakumar Yadav in batting and Chahal and Prasidh Krishna in bowling.

Shikhar Dhawan along with Rohit Sharma can provide a strong foundation for a big score to the team. He has a batting average of 54 in the last 8 matches. Where Yadav shares the same profile with the same average in the last 7 matches.  Krishna may outclass English batting with his magical hands. He has taken 12 wickets in 5 matches and we expect he can do well on the pitches of England as well.

Somehow, the English team flopped in the T20s. The batting line has forgotten to bat on their home ground. On the same pitches where the guests are scoring 170 and 198, the English batters are unable to cross 150 even. The same went with the bowling as well.



Keeping all odds in line, experts are hopeful for the England team’s come back. Moeen Ali gave a good performance with the ball and bat both in the T20s. He can be an asset for the team in ODIs as well. The bad form of team captain Buttler may come to an end and he may smash good runs in a 50 overs match. Hopes are also high from Phil Salt who has an average of 59 in the last 9 matches. Let’s see if he could carry his form in this match. David Willey may take wickets along with Brydon Carse. The duo may be destructive to the blue shirts. Livingstone if given chance can also get the team in form in ODIs for the win.

In the last 5 matches, the teams played since 2018, 3 are won by England and two by the Indians
