Captain Rohit Sharma’s attacking fifty and Jasprit Bumrah’s masterclass of seam bowling helped a dominant India bulldoze a sub-par England by 10 wickets in the first game of the three-match one-day international series at the Oval on Tuesday and take a 1-0 series lead.
Jos Buttler tried to stick around and top-scored with 30 but he fell to the short ball. England looked to fall well below their worst-ever score of 86 but a ninth-wicket partnership between David Willey and Brydon Carse ensured they got over it.
Bumrah ended with career-best figures of 6/19 which is also the third-best for an Indian in ODIs and the fourth-best in England. Shami chipped in with three wickets of his own while Prasidh Krishna took the remaining wicket.
