England vs India: Jasprit Bumrah made the maximum noise amid the hosts' batting collapse to return with his best-ever bowling figures in the format. He also achieved a massive feat:

Rohit Sharma-led India have squared off against England in the three-match ODI series opener at Kennington Oval, London on Tuesday (July 12). After winning the three T20Is, 2-1, Rohit & Co. won the toss and had no hesitancy in bowling first with conditions favourable for swing and seam on a green surface.

In quick time, England was 26 for 5 and got dismissed for a paltry 110 in 25.2 overs -- dismissed for their lowest ever score in ODIs against the Men in Blue. All the Indian pacers wreaked havoc but Jasprit Bumrah made the maximum noise with pace and movement to return with his best-ever bowling figures in the format, i.e. 6 for 19 (second five-fer overall). In addition, Bumrah scripted history by ending with the best-ever ODI bowling figures by an Indian in England.

Bumrah joined the six-wickets club among Indians, including the likes of Stuart Binny, Anil Kumble, Ashish Nehra and Co. Overall, he now has the third-best bowling figures by an Indian in the 50-over format overall.

While Bumrah returned with a six-fer, Mohammed Shami returned with 3 for 31 whereas Prasidh Krishna also chipped in with a wicket. None of the English batters looked comfortable in the middle with skipper Jos Buttler (30), Moeen Ali (14), David Willey (21) and Brydon Carse (15) being the only four crossing the double digits. Meanwhile, as many as four batters were dismissed for a duck.
