Bumrah takes six as India crush England in first ODI
England were bowled out for 110 as they slumped to a miserable 10-wicket defeat against India in the first one-day international at The Oval.
Jason Roy, Joe Root and Ben Stokes were all out for ducks inside the first three overs after the hosts were put into bat.
India’s pace attack, led by the sensational Jasprit Bumrah, was irresistible and 7-3 soon became 26-5 when Jonny Bairstow and Liam Livingstone, who also failed to score, fell.
Jos Buttler offered brief resistance with 30, captaining England for the first time in a home ODI since being appointed white-ball captain.
But when he holed out at deep square leg, England were 59-7 – still 27 adrift of their lowest ODI score.
Lower-order hitting saved England that ignominy but they were dismissed in just 25.2 overs with Bumrah taking 6-19.
India serenely cruised to their target in 18.4 overs, captain Rohit Sharma ending 76 not out, to inflict one of England’s heaviest defeats in recent times.
The tourists, who won the T20 series between the sides 2-1 last week, take a 1-0 lead in the three-match series.
The next game is on Thursday at Lord’s before the third at Emirates Old Trafford on Sunday. (BBC Sport)
