India have been slow starters in ODI series having lost the first game of the last five bi-lateral ties. However a stunning comeback led by debutant pacer Prasidh Krishna helped turn the tables this time around as the hosts beat England by 66 runs in the first ODI to go 1-0 up in the three-match series played at the MCA Stadium in Pune.
"This is one of our sweetest wins in the recent past. This one is right up there with any other. Getting nine wickets so quickly is outstanding. To come back into the game the way we did is brilliant. I'm a really, really proud man right now. Team showed great character and intensity. "
-Virat Kohli, India skipper
