Krunal Pandya and Prasidh Krishna have made their debuts for India in the first ODI against England.
After winning the four-match Test and five-match T20I series by 4-1 and 3-2 against England respectively, India have been playing against the same opponent in the ongoing first One Day International of the three-match series at Maharashtra Association Stadium in Pune as well.
Meanwhile, prior to the game, two cricketers Krunal Pandya and Prasidh Krishna earned their debut ODI caps as well. This has become a big day for both of them as this is the first International match for Krishna whereas Krunal had last played for India in a T20I match in November 2019 against Bangladesh.
Both Krunal Pandya and Prasidh Krishna have been in good form in the recently-concluded 2020-21 edition of the Vijay Hazare Trophy. The Karnataka pacer was quite impressive as he has played 7 matches for Karnataka nd claimed 14 wickets which came at an average of 22.21 as well.
On the other hand, Krunal Pandya scored 388 runs in 5 innings in the domestic tournament which also included two centuries and two fifties for Baroda. Meanwhile, the spin all-rounder received his maiden ODI cap from his brother Hardik Pandya and he has dedicated his debut to his late father by pointing the cap above in the sky.
