India vs England 1st ODI: Records galore for Kuldeep Yadav

India's captain Virat Kohli and India's Yuzvendra Chahal celebrate after Chahal bowls England's Joe Root during the international Twenty20 cricket match between England and India at Sophia Gardens in Cardiff

The left-arm wrist spinner befuddled them in the T20 worldwide at Old Trafford and here he altered the shape and momentum of the game in the sort of manner of which most bowlers can only dream.

Then any hopes England had of making a contest of this first of three Royal London matches were quickly dispelled when Rohit Sharma, with his second consecutive sublime century, and Kohli made a mockery of what went before in a second-wicket stand of 167.

With cricket's blue riband tournament scheduled to be held in United Kingdom next year, the ODI series will give Virat Kohli an ideal opportunity to get a drift about the conditions that his men are expected to encounter at exactly same time next year.

Kuldeep's career-best figures of six for 25 allowed England to only score a modest 268 in good batting conditions. KL Rahul's stunning gives them a happy headache and if India follow the T20 template, it will be a demotion for Kohli to number four.

Despite Root's recent struggles, Farbrace is confident the versatile batsman still has a major role to play in England's red and whit-ball squads.

Kuldeep was backed up by the quick-hitting openers before Shikhar Dhawan was caught for 40 by Adil Rashid after horribly mis-timing a slog off Moeen Ali. The series is also a fight for the top spot in ODI rankings as a 3-0 win for India will provide them top rank in ODI team rankings, which is now held by England. Roy was dismissed while attempting a reverse sweep. When they have 10 overs then know they have the skills to have an impact.

India eye series victory against England
Hardik Pandya took four crucial wickets and also played a cameo alongside Rohit Sharma to ensure a smooth end to the series. Kohli and Rohit then took India to 100/2 in 10 overs and were on course for a win with a 89-run stand for the third wicket.

Kuldeep was not afraid to flight the ball and dipped viciously having the batsmen in two minds.

When Kuldeep took five wickets in the first Twenty20 worldwide at Old Trafford England called for their old "Merlyn" bowling machine in a bid to work out how to handle this most unusual angle of attack. He bamboozled Joe Root and Bairstow with two different deliveries. Four balls later, Bairstow was trapped lbw via DRS after failing to read the googly.

But Farbrace insists the 27-year-old still has a future in the shortest format of the game and will have a point to prove when the three-match 50-over series against India starts on Thursday in Nottingham.

The more conventional leg-spin of Yuzvendra Chahal did for England captain Eoin Morgan before Jos Buttler and Ben Stokes led a partial recovery that looked as if it might lift England towards something like par.

This brought Stokes and Buttler together at the crease, and they put on 93 runs for the fifth wicket.

"In the game at Cardiff, a low-scoring game, the idea of him going in when he did [at No.3] was to rotate the strike, knock it around and get you close to winning the game". Buttler, whose dream run has continued since the start of the IPL, will like to continue his rich vein of form.
