Kuldeep Yadav took six wickets as India overpowered England in the first one-day international at Trent Bridge last night (Jul 12).

The left-arm wrist-spinner returned career-best ODI figures of 6-25 as England were dismissed for a mere 268 after India captain Virat Kohli sent them in to bat.
 
Rohit Sharma then made an unbeaten century, his 18th century in ODIs, as the tourists won by eight wickets with a mammoth 59 balls to spare.
 
Sharma was 137 not out, after putting on 167 for the second wicket with Kohli (75) as India went 1-0 up in a three-match series.
 
 
After Kuldeep had dismissed England's top three during a burst of 3-5 in 10 balls, Ben Stokes (50) and Jos Buttler (53) shared a fifth-wicket stand of 93.
 
But neither could break the shackles and both fell to Kuldeep, who was just the third overseas spinner to take five wickets in an ODI in England after Sri Lankan duo of Muttiah Muralitharan (5-34 at Lord's in 1998) and Suraj Randiv (5-42 at Old Trafford in 2011).
