No 1 ODI side England take on No 2 ranked India in the first of three match series at Nottingham on Thursday. India come into the series high on confidence having won three match T20I series 2-1 against England and 2-0 against Ireland prior to that. When it comes to the ODIs England come into the series in good form having blanked World Champions Australia 5-0 in the recently concluded series, which included a win by in which the home side posted world record score of 481 the last time they played at the same venue. Bhuvneshwar Kumar remains a doubt with a back injury which saw him miss the last T20 match at Bristol and his absence could play a significant role in who comes out on top. Ben Stokes who missed out in England’s last series is expected to come straight back in. Get live updates of India vs England, 1st ODI in Nottingham here. (LIVE STREAMING INFO) (LIVE SCORE)

India need to win the series 3-0 to overtake England as the number one ODI side in ICC rankings. Former India captain MS Dhoni needs just 33 runs to become only the second wicketkeeper batsman to score 10,000 runs or more in One day internationals.

England batsman Alex Hales will miss the first one-day international against India on Thursday because of a side injury sustained when batting in net practice, the England and Wales Cricket Board has announced.

Middlesex batsman David Malan has been called up as cover, with Hales set to be monitored by England on a game-by-game basis.

The three-match ODI series starts at Trent Bridge — the home ground for Nottinghamshire opener Hales — continues at Lord’s on Saturday and concludes at Headingley on Tuesday.

Hales averaged 48 as England lost their Twenty20 series against India 2-1. England’s most recent ODI at Trent Bridge saw Hales make 147 as England complied a men’s record total of 481 for six in a 242-run win, also a record, against Australia on June 19.
