Written by Abhishek Lohia

Team India is ready to take the lead in England in the ODIs after flagging in the T20 series. The first match of the three-match ODI series will be played in Nottingham on today. These series are important for both teams. Indian captain Virat Kohli has nothing to lose at this time. But, the whole series is left to get. At the same time, England is the number one team in ODIs. In such a case, if they lose in ODIs, hosts will lost the series in their own home. Team India is in the best form this time. But, captain Kohli has a big problem, batting at number four. Because it is a position that is not confirmed permanently yet.

Shreyas Iyer, then Manish Pandey has ever seen playing at No 4 position. However, making these two places in the team is a bit difficult. there are three batsmen who fit perfectly to bat at number four. KL Rahul could work at No 4. Another option is Shreyas Iyer. who got a chance at No. 5 in South Africa, but didn’t quite set the world alight.  Suresh Raina is flexible enough to slot in at No. 4 or 6.

Joe Root has a batting average of 49.82 in ODI cricket. 49.82. In 2018, he has scored runs with an average of 48.66. Root remains a key figure in the ODI side. Rashid is an important bowler for Eoin Morgan because this man can turn for a wicket in the middle overs. With 30 wickets from 16 games in 2018, he is in best form but he will need more of the same against India. And if he faile to getting wickets, England could struggle.
