Pacer Prasidh Krishna recorded the best bowling figures in ODI debut for India as he helped his team secure a 66-run victory over England in the first game of the three-match series on Tuesday.

The Karnataka fast bowler became the first Indian bowler to pick more than three wickets on ODI debut as he ended with figures of 4/54 in Pune. Prasidh scalped Jason Roy, Ben Stokes, Sam Billings and wrapped up the innings by dismissing Tom Curran.

The right-arm pacer broke the record held by Noel David who had registered figures of 3/21 against West Indies in the Port of Spain in 1997. The record stood for 24 years.

Only 14 bowlers have picked up a five-wicket haul in their maiden appearances with the record for the best bowling figures in an ODI has been set by Kagiso Rabada. He picked up 6/16 in South Africa’s match vs Bangladesh in 2015.

Interestingly, before Prasidh Krishna, 16 Indian bowlers had taken three-wicket hauls in ODI debuts.
