The spotlight is squarely on India captain Virat Kohli after he guided the hosts to a thumping win in the first ODI against England in Pune but England vice captain Jos Buttler said the team can’t afford to focus only on the star batsman – insisting the hosts have other threats too.
While it was Kohli who scored a blistering 122 to help chase down 351 in Pune, he got good support from the unheralded Kedar Jadhav, who hit a 76-ball 12 to hand India a 1-0 lead going into Thursday’s Cuttack one-dayer.
India and England have both made one change each, with the hosts bringing in Bhuvneshwar Kumar for Umesh Yadav and the visitors replacing Adil Rashid with Liam Plunkett.
