Hales out of first ODI against India due to side injury

Hales out of first ODI against India due to side injury”

England opener Alex Hales has been ruled out of the first match of the three-match ODI series against India. "I like that", said Rohit when Karthik asked him if he wanted to change his nickname to something else. K L Rahul's stupendous form has been a happy headache for the team management and there is a possibility that the captain Virat Kohli might come at No 4 in order to give Rahul a chance to make optimum use of his current form. In the last one and a half years, they have tried a lot of players at the no. 4 position, but with this top four, there is quality, class, and experience.

It is a reputation built on fearless, attacking cricket that has seen England win 46 out of 69 ODIs since a disastrous ICC Cricket World Cup 2015.

In case you didn't know.

. India come into the ODIs having claimed the Twenty20 series with England 2-1, but the 50-over form of the game could offer an even sterner challenge. Although England has the home advantage in the series, India is high on confidence due to their victory in T20I series. India's ODI series in England can be considered an important step towards preparing for 2019 Cricket World Cup, which is scheduled in England and Wales.

Currently, Rohit Sharma is the only player who has scored three hundreds in T20Is and three double-centuries in ODIs and when he was asked to rate his hundreds, he said it is hard to do so.

Laxman also praised the balance of the Indian cricket team, saying that they are good in all three departments of the game.

England and India, now ranked first and second respectively, play the first match of their upcoming series in Nottingham on Thursday, in what will kick off a month-long extravaganza of One-Day Internationals featuring 10 sides, spread across four continents.
