India vs England: Prasidh Krishna breaks Indian record with 4-wicket haul on ODI debut

It was the day of debutants in Pune as Prasidh Krishna and Krunal Pandya entered record books, firing India to a 66-run win in the ODI series opener against England. A comprehensive win meant India took a 1-0 lead in the 3-match series, bucking their trend of losing series openers in the recent past.

Prasidh Krishna on Tuesday broke the Indian record for the most number of wickets taken by a bowler on ODI debut. Krishna, the Karnataka pacer, finished with figures of 4/54 in his quota of 4 overs. Krishna broke the 24-year record held by Noel David who had registered figures of 3/21 against West Indies in Port of Spain in 1997.

India vs England, 1st ODI

As many as 16 India bowlers had taken 3-wicket hauls on ODI debuts but the Kolkata Knight Riders fast bowler became the first Indian to take more than 3 on what was a dream debut in Pune.

Prasidh bounces back after an expensive first spell

It was not the ideal start with the ball for Prasidh Krishna as he was taken to the cleaners by England openers Jason Roy and Jonny Bairstow. England raced to a solid start in the chase of 318 against India. Krishna conceded as many as 22 runs in his 3rd over in international cricket.

However, the 25-year-old pacer returned to break the opening stand between Bairstow and Roy that accounted for 135 runs in just 14.2 overs. Krishna got the wicket of Roy to trigger an England collapse as the visitors went from 135 for 0 to 176 for 5.

Krishna kept picking up wickets at regular intervals as he grew in confidence. He removed Ben Stokes (1), Sam Billings (18), and Tom Curran (11) to complete a record-breaking spell in his maiden international outing.

India rode on Krishna’s 4-wicket haul and contributions from Shardul Thakur (3/37) and Bhuvneshwar Kumar (2/30) and Krunal Pandya (1/59) as England were bundled out for 251 in 42.1 overs.
