Karnataka fast bowler Prasidh Krishna and Baroda all-rounder Krunal Pandya have made their debuts for India in the first ODI against England. This is the first international match of famous Krishna, while this is the first ODI match of Krinal Panda. Krunal has previously played T20 cricket for India. Krinal and Prasidh had done well in the recent Vijay Hazare Trophy. Due to this performance, he was selected in the ODI team.
Before the first ODI, Krunal was given an ODI cap by his younger brother Hardik Pandya. While taking the cap from his brother, Krinal Pandya became emotional. He showed this cap to the sky and remembered his father. Hardik and Krinal’s father Himanshu Pandya died in January of the same year.

In the Vijay Hazare Trophy against Tripura, Krinal had scored 127 off 97 balls, even when Krinal remembered his father. This was Krunal’s first century in his List-A career, but his father was not alive to see it, so Krunal became emotional. ‘I scored a century for the first time, but it’s not a father to watch. It fills my heart to think that my father is not in this world. But they must have seen my game and they must have been happy. Well done Krinal, he may have said. I dedicate this game to them, ‘said Krunal.
“When I scored 76 runs in the Syed Mushtaq Ali tournament in January, my father and I were talking. Your time has begun now, he said. This was my last conversation with him. I understand the meaning now, ‘said Krinal.
Krinal, who led Baroda in the Vijay Hazare Trophy, scored 388 runs in 5 matches and took 5 wickets. On the other hand, famous Krishna also expressed happiness over getting a chance in the Indian team. I will always remember this moment. “Everyone has a dream to play cricket for the country,” said Krishna.
Famous Krishna plays local cricket from Karnataka. He has the ability to bowl at a speed of 150 km per hour. Krishna also performed well in Vijay Hazare Trophy and Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy. He plays for Kolkata in the IPL. Krishna played his first first-class match in 2015, but his record is not very good in this format, so he only got a chance to play 9 first-class matches. Krishna has taken 81 wickets at an average of 23 in 48 List A matches. In 40 T20 matches, he took 33 wickets at an average of 35. Krishna also took 18 wickets in 24 matches in the IPL.
