The first clash of the three-ODI affair begins at Trent Bridge as world No 1 side England look to assert themselves against the nation direct below them in the standings.

India will be going to play the 1 ODI on high after 2-1 T20I series win while England, the top-ranked ODI team in ICC men's ODI Team rankings, coming into the series having crushed a below-par Australia 6-0 in their last bilateral engagement recently. Bhuvneshwar Kumar remains a doubt with a back injury which saw him miss the last T20 match at Bristol and his absence could play a significant role in who comes out on top. The Men-in-Blue and the English team have faced each other in an ODI series in India previous year when the hosts were victorious by 2-1.

"There is a lot of depth in the batting order and in the bowling department, Kuldeep and Chahal have been picking up a lot of wickets in the middle overs and once Bhuvneshwar Kumar is fully fit, we all know what he can do with the ball", he said. The toss will happen in just under 20 minutes.

Like India, the hosts' batting line-up also runs deep with the likes of Jos Buttler, Jason Roy, Alex Hales, Jonny Bairstow, Morgan and Ben Stokes.

I'll take the credit for my team, and we'll go to Talladega, and we'll wreck everybody that throws a bad block like that". Stenhouse started a 25-car accident early in the 400-mile race and then took out two more contenders a few laps later.

Dawid Malan was recently called up as cover for the injured Tom Curran for the first T20I game against India.

The three-match ODI series starts at Trent Bridge - the home ground for Nottinghamshire opener Hales - continues at Lord's on Saturday and concludes at Headingley on Tuesday.

India, who had beaten England 2-1 in the Twenty20 worldwide series, had conceded the top ranking to England at the annual update on May 2 but it will get a chance to claim back the spot. England defeated Australia in the previous ODI series and also achieved the highest team score in ODIs when they scored 481/6 in the third ODI against Australian team.
