India are in the middle of an nearly three-month long tour of England with a five Test match series to follow the ODIs. With cricket's blue riband tournament scheduled to be held in United Kingdom in 2015, the ODI series will give Virat Kohli an ideal opportunity to get a drift about the conditions that his men are expected to encounter at exactly same time next year. With ICC Cricket World Cup scheduled to be held in United Kingdom in 2019, the three-match ODI series will give Virat Kohli and Company an ideal opportunity to know the English conditions that Indian cricket team are expected to encounter at during their World Cup stint at exactly same time next year.

India vs England 2018, 1st ODI at Trent Bridge, latest update and cricket score: Eoin Morgan has to call spinner, Moeen Ali, into the attack in the sixth over as Dhawan continues to attack the pacers.

The hosts are without Alex Hales who is ruled out through injury, with Dawid Malan replacing him in the squad.

The last time when India visited England for an ODI series was in 2014, when MS Dhoni-led Indian cricket team romped home with a thumping 3-1 win. Add Ben Stokes to it and England bear a formidable look. "This is the top four I would like to see at next year's world cup", he continued. They won (ODI series) last time they came over here.

The series will also enable Indian team management to mix and match the various combinations, keeping World Cup in mind. In the recently concluded three-match T20I series, India's spin-twins Yuzvendra Chahal and Kuldeep Yadav showed the audience what they are capable off.

"There is a lot of depth in the batting order and in the bowling department, Kuldeep and Chahal have been picking up a lot of wickets in the middle overs and once Bhuvneshwar Kumar is fully fit, we all know what he can do with the ball", he said.
