But on the way, one of the six people got down on the terrace and injured Meera Salvi, who was watching the match from the stand with her parents.
The girl made a bit of a fuss on the stand after hitting the ball but the English team physio immediately noticed her and she came out well.
Rohit was happy after the victory
After a resounding victory over England in the first ODI of the three-match series, India captain Rohit Sharma said it was the right decision to bowl after winning the toss.
An exciting partnership between Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan and a six-wicket haul by Jaspreet Bumrah helped Team India beat England by 10 wickets in the first ODI of the three-match series at Kennington Oval on Tuesday.
“The coin toss was the right decision considering the overhead situation and the pitch. We made good use of the situation. We never care about the situation because we have players who can just come out and use that space.
“There were some swings and seams in front and we made good use of them. When you play in such a situation, you have to understand the support and do the field placement accordingly, ”said Rohit in his post-match presentation.
Rohit scored 76 off 58 balls while Shikhar scored 31 off 54 balls as the Men in Blue team reached the target of 111 in just 18.4 overs.
“We knew our bowlers could swing the ball in both directions and that’s why they have such an area. Shikhar and I understand each other better, except for the first ball where he was told wrong. He has been playing ODIs for several days now, ”said Rohit.
“We know what he brings to the table for us. Experienced players and they’ve done well for us in this situation before. Hook is a high-risk shot, I understand that, but I’m happy as long as he comes out right.” Said.
