The Virat Kohli-led side won the recently concluded T20I series 2-1 and the team management hopes for another valuable performance by the team in the 50-over format. The Men-in-Blue and the English team have faced each other in an ODI series in India past year when the hosts were victorious by 2-1. With ICC Cricket World Cup scheduled to be held in United Kingdom in 2019, the three-match ODI series will give Virat Kohli and Company an ideal opportunity to know the English conditions that Indian cricket team are expected to encounter at during their World Cup stint at exactly same time next year.

England batsman Alex Hales will miss the first one-day global against India on Thursday because of a side injury sustained when batting in net practice, the England and Wales Cricket Board has announced.

Nepal will debut in ODIs when they play two matches against the Netherlands on August 1 and 3 while the Netherlands will be turning out in ODIs for the first time since losing ODI status in 2014 at the ICC Cricket World Cup Qualifier in New Zealand.

In the opening ODI, spin can be the key factor as the Trent Bridge ground will be drier than normal.

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.
