FOR THE RECORD
** India’s 66-run victory in the first match of the series was first after three successive defeats against England.
** India have played 10 ODIs since the start of 2020 across which they have picked only four wickets in the first 10 overs. Their average (154) and run rate (6.16) in this period is the worst among 17 teams in this period.
**Jonny Bairstow scored 2654 runs since began opening the batting for England in ODIs on 14 June 2017. Only one batsman has scored more runs at the top of a batting order -- Rohit Sharma (3831). And some of that is thanks to more innings played.
