1st ODI: Bumrah's career-best 6/19 helps India bowl out England for 110 (Ld)

London, July 12 (IANS) Jasprit Bumrah’s sensational and career-best show with the ball (6/19) helped India bowl out England for a paltry 110 in the first ODI of the three-match series at the Kennington Oval here on Tuesday.

Bumrah with his career-best ODI figures of 6 for 19 became the first Indian pace bowler to take six wickets in an ODI in England. He was supported well by Mohammed Shami, who bagged 3 for 31 en route to becoming the joint third-fastest to 150 wickets, and Prasidh Krishna (1/26).

Skipper Jos Buttler (30 off 32) was the highest scorer for England, who kept losing wickets at regular intervals. David Willey (21 off 26), and Brydon Carse (15 off 26) were the other main contributors for the hosts.

After winning the toss and opting to bowl first in bowling-friendly condition, India had a dream start as Bumrah bowled a double-wicket maiden in the second over of the innings to rattle England.

The pacer first troubled Jason Roy with a couple of deliveries swinging in sharply and then bowled one slightly wide and the batter ended up inside-edging it onto the stumps. Joe Root, who came to bat at No. 3 was troubled by some extra bounce as he outside-edged it to Rishabh Pant.

England were in more trouble as Ben Stokes also departed without scoring — the second occasion of three ducks among the top four for England in an ODI — after the left-hander got an inside edge to the ‘keeper while trying to defend Shami who came in from round the wicket.

Soon, Bumrah picked his third wicket by getting rid of Bairstow. Liam Livingstone also departed for a duck after getting bowled by an in-swinging delivery from Bumrah.

Hardik Pandya, who was playing an ODI game after a long time, nearly picked up a wicket in his first over when Buttler rode the bounce and almost chopped it on. Bumrah, given a fifth straight over, would have picked up the wicket of Moeen Ali had Pant not put down a tough chance down the leg side.

After getting reduced to 26-5, Buttler and Moeen played their shots and tried to build a partnership to resurrect England. They added 27 runs before Moeen got out to Prasidh Krishna. From there on, the onus was on Buttler but he also got out to Shami while playing the pull. In the same over, Craig Overton was also bowled as England were in shambles at 68/8.

However, England managed to cross the 100-run mark courtesy of a useful ninth wicket association between David Willey and Brydon Carse. Their 35-run partnership in 41 balls came to an end when Carse was removed by Bumrah with a crushing yorker. Reece Topley hit a six off Yuzvendra Chahal but Willey was bowled by Bumrah as England were bundled out for 110 — their lowest ODI total against India.

Brief scores: England 110 all out in 25.2 Overs (Jos Buttler 30, David Willey 21; Jasprit Bumrah 6/19, Mohammed Shami 3/31) vs India
