- England were bowled out for 110 in the first ODI against India at The Oval on Tuesday
- This is England’s lowest total in one-day internationals against India
- Jasprit Bumrah (6/19), Mohammed Shami (3/31) destroyed England
England collapsed to their lowest ever total in one-day internationals against India less than a month after smashing a record-breaking 498 for 4 off 50 overs in an ODI against the Netherlands.
On June 17, England had battered the Netherlands bowling attack to hit 498 for 4, which is the highest total in men’s ODIs. Jos Buttler starred with a 70-ball 162 while Dawid Malan hit 125 and Phil Salt scored 122 before a 22-ball 66 from Liam Livingstone.
However, England’s fortunes slipped dramatically after Jos Buttler took charge as the team’s shorter formats captain following Eoin Morgan’s retirement. They first lost the T20I series to India and were then bowled out for 110, which is their lowest total against India in ODIs.
This is now England’s lowest total in ODIs against India. Their previous low against two-time world champions India had come during a Champions Trophy match in October 2006 when Munaf Patel’s 3 for 18 saw them collapse to 125 all out.
England were asked to bat by India after Rohit Sharma won the toss. Their innings was derailed by Jasprit Bumrah in his first over when he picked Jason Roy and Joe Root in a double-wicket maiden. Mohammed Shami then removed Ben Stokes before Bumrah dismissed Jonny Bairstow and Liam Livingstone to put the hosts in massive trouble.
England pinned their hopes on Jos Buttler but India had other plans. Mohammed Shami returned for his second spell to remove Buttler for 30 after Prasidh Krishna dismissed Moeen Ali. Shami also removed Craig Overton to leave England reeling.
On June 14, 2001, England were dismissed for 86 against Australia. Chasing a middling total in a rain-affected match, England were dismissed for 86 after Jason Gillespie starred with figures of 3 for 20. A little over two years later, in November 2003, England were dismissed for 88 thanks to Chaminda Vaas’s 3 for 15.
In between these two collapses, New Zealand had bowled England out for 89 in Wellington in February 2002, and years before, Australia had dismissed England for 93 at Leeds in June 1975. Australia had also rolled England over for 94 in Melbourne in February 1979 before Sri Lanka sent England packing for 99 in an ODI at Chester-le-Street on May 25, 2014.
