England vs India recent form
The Indian team, led by Rohit Sharma, may just be coming off a defeat in their latest international outing, but that was the one loss in the 2-1 win they registered in the T20I series prior to the ODI fixtures.
In the T20I on Saturday, Suryakumar Yadav shone with a stellar 117 (55), and despite it going in vain, the knock speaks of the damage he is capable of inflicting on England in their own backyard.
India’s last ODI series against England was a home series in March 2021 which ended 2-1 in India’s favour. In the final game of the series, India batted first and put up a score of 329, helped by Rishabh Pant’s 78 (62) and Shikhar Dhawan’s 67 (56).
In response, the English batters scored 322/9 in 50 overs despite a firing of 95* (83) from Sam Curran down the order and a run-a-ball half-century from Dawid Malan.
India has won their last ODI series 3-0, but lost by the same margin to South Africa before that. England, on the other hand, are on a six match winning streak in this format of the game.
England: W, W, W, W, W
India: W, W, W, L, L

England vs India prediction and cricket betting tips for 1st ODI
While history is on India’s side, the recent T20I win for England would have broken India’s momentum. Given that it is also England’s home, it is likely that the Englishmen will emerge winners in the first ODI.
