The first day of the Royal London One-Day Cup – How Indian players did.
The first day of the Royal London One-Day Cup – How Indian players did. England’s Royal London One-Day Cup started on Tuesday, August 2, with many games happening all over the country. Since the tournament is going on at the same time as The Hundred, the focus is on the 100-ball competition, and many of the best players won’t be at the List A tournament. But the Indian players might make a significant difference in the Royal London One-Day Cup.
On the first day of the tournament, Krunal Pandya and Cheteshwar Pujara each played for their respective teams. Washington Sundar and Navdeep Saini are also expected to play soon. Recently, they both played county cricket for their teams. As fans wait for day 2 of the tournament to start, here’s how the Indian players did on the first day.
The senior batsman couldn’t keep up his excellent form in the first game for Sussex. He was out for 9 runs off 16 balls. Pujara’s List A tournament didn’t get off to a good start when he led his team against Nottinghamshire, and they lost by 65 runs when they tried to reach the target of 291. When Pujara last played in the Royal London One-Day Cup, he did well with the bat. He will hope to repeat it this time as well.
Krunal Pandya was playing for Warwickshire, but he didn’t get to bat because his team easily beat Gloucestershire’s target of 265 runs. However, he did show off his bowling skills and had a spell of 10 for 0 and 54 for 2. No bowler for Warwickshire had an economy rate of more than 6. Krunal has had an excellent start to his campaign, and he will try to do even better to show why he should be brought back into the national team.
