Pant wasn’t part of the playing eleven for the first ODI against England. India played with KL Rahul as their wicket-keeper, who has been given the role in ODI for a while now.
Rahul, who was out of form in T20I, scored an unbeaten half-century coming out to bat at number 5. He added 112* runs with Krunal Pandya for the sixth wicket as India scored 317/5.
England were bowled out for 251 runs in 42.1 overs in the chase. They started well with 135/0 at one stage before losing wickets in quick intervals. Jonny Bairstow was the top-scorer for them with a 66-ball 94 runs knock. He was dismissed by Shardul Thakur in the 23rd over and they failed to build another big partnership after his wicket.
