India win by three wickets

For now though, let's reflect in a masterclass of run-chasing from the hosts, the details of which are in the full match report here.

He runs the game, got the whole world talking. King Kohli.

Join us for the second ODI from around 08:00 GMT on Thursday.

Cheers.

India win by three wickets

So Virat Kohli think India can keep improving, which will strike fear into England's hearts.

Not least because the hosts' skipper accurately predicted when they would panic in this game.

The tourists will hope to learn the lessons of this masterclass quickly before the second ODI in Cuttack on Thursday.

We could see changes to the line-up - I'm not sure the batting needs much but Sam Billings or Jonny Bairstow could enter the fray, while Liams Plunkett and Dawson may be considered to boost a beleaguered bowling unit.

'Kohli showed me how to chase big totals' - Jadhav

India win by three wickets

Man of the match Kedar Jadhav, who made 120 from 76 balls: "Obviously this is a great feeling that I could win a game for my country in front of my home crowd; my mum, dad, wife and daughter are here.

"I could play this long because the captain Virat Kohli has done it so many times and shown how to chase big totals. Today was the chance to get runs and watch Virat Kohli from the other end. It was a special day for me."

It's frightening to think what India could do if the rest of the side actually do come up to Virat Kohli's standards, as the captain clearly wants.

'I pushed Jadhav to the limit' - Kohli

India win by three wickets

Virat Kohli: “Yes I wanted Jadhav to run hard, the best practice is in the middle of the pitch and I wanted to push him to the limit. I don’t want complacency as he has the talent to win games for India.

“The only way you can come out of such a situation is counter-attack. At 63-4 we had to tell the opposition we were here to attack and we can win from any situation.

"The bowlers tried their hardest and did well in the initial phase of the innings but the batsmen showed their power towards the end. There were some consistency issues which we will work on for the next game.”

Camilo: Can England recover emotionally from this loss? 350 is a pretty good total, and India were 63-4.  

Ian:  Does make me laugh hearing talk of the impending demise of one day cricket, like 700 runs in a day doesn't entertain.  

Stuart: England's top scorers hit 70s, India's hit 120s. That's the difference.  

'I told Jadhav they'll press the panic button' - Kohli

India win by three wickets

India captain Virat Kohli after making 122: "This one is going to take a while to sink in, conceding 350 runs and being 63-4. 

"What a special innings from Jadhav, and Hardik finishing really well at the end with Ashwin. That's a very special win for us.

"The moment I came to the crease, Jadhav started hitting the ball really well and I said 'if we get to 150 here, they will press the panic button. Watch.'

"It was a very, very special partnership that I'll remember for a long time."

'We had the runs' - Morgan

India win by three wickets

England captain Eoin Morgan: "We had the runs on the board. We wanted to bowl first to see what a good score was. You post 350 and you think you're in the game, especially after taking four early wickets, but credit to Virat and Kedar - they didn't give us a chance.

"We didn't play at out best today, we thought we were in the game for most of it so all is not lost.

“The batters did well but we had a tricky period between 35 and 40 overs after we lost Buttler’s wicket but Stokes did well to come in and get us in to the game. Ideally we would have upped the momentum a little earlier.”

We'll bring you reaction from both captains shortly but in the meantime, Stephan Shemilt's report of this extraordinary match is building here.

Do give it a read, there were a few rewrites along the way...

Simon Hughes

BBC Test Match Special commentator

350 should be enough but I've always worried about England's bowling in one-day cricket unless the ball does something. Rashid lacks confidence under pressure. Chris Woakes bowled a superb opening spell but it was almost a licence to print runs on this pitch. England have got to set their targets higher - they've got to get to 370, 380 to feel confident of winning. 

India win by three wickets

For England, a few tears and beers later and they may be able to look back on their innings in a positive light.

Jason Roy and Joe Root looked in fine form, there were some decent cameos and Ben Stokes shone late on to drag his side up to what looked like a great total at the time after they struggled in the middle overs.

It matters little in the context of this game of course. And their white-ball bowling will again cause concern.

Simon Hughes

BBC Test Match Special commentator

We have just seen the definition of intimidatory batting, the way the batters from both sides demolished the attacks. 

India win by three wickets

On TMS earlier, Isa Guha said England would need 380. Most seemed to think that was a touch high.

Maybe it was actually a touch low. This is an ominous performance from India going into the rest of the series.

There was a short-arm jab that flew for six from Kohli somewhere in that carnage that will go down as one of the great cricket shots.

It wasn't even that bad a ball from Chris Woakes...

'I was just trying to keep it pretty cool'

Hardik Pandya, who took 2-46 and made 40 not out, says: "I showed the confidence that I can finish a game. 

"Obviously I didn't go for runs when I was bowling but I was keeping it simple and I got two wickets as well.

"Virat and Kedar put on a great show and I was just watching and learning and I was just trying to keep it pretty cool at the end."

When Jadhav first came in it was 63-4 and they should have put him under more pressure. He just seemed completely confident, no doubt inspired by the magic of Kohli at the other end. The two of them were the perfect foil for each other.

India win by three wickets

But Kohli's masterclass should not overshadow the achievement of Kedar Jadhav in their remarkable 200-run partnership,

The diminutive batsman raced out of the blocks and never looked back, bringing up his century off just 65 balls on his home ground. He took a lot of the pressure off his captain, hitting huge boundaries despite suffering from cramp.

When those two departed, England looked to have a sniff but the damage was done - Hardik Pandya showing a cool head to lead India home.

The joint-fourth highest run chase in ODI history. 700 runs in one day. England chastened.

India win the first ODI

After former skipper MS Dhoni's strange innings came to a tame end, his replacement Virat Kohli took hold of the game in ruthless fashion.

At that point, India were 63-4, chasing 351, but Kohli looked at times invincible, playing all round the ground to reach his 27th ODI century.

In doing so, he also made his 17th ton while chasing, drawing level with the record of the great Sachin Tendulkar.

INDIA WIN BY THREE WICKETS

Ind 356-7

Extraordinary. Emphatic. Expert.

A magnificent chase by India comes to a fitting close as R Ashwin batters Moeen Ali back over his head for six.

The hosts were 63-4 but have beaten England by three wickets, with 11 balls to spare.

The crowd are ecstatic in Pune. England look shellshocked.

SCORES TIED

Pandya is duly given not out...

...and next ball launches Adil Rashid for six down the ground. Scores tied. Brutal stuff.

Thomas: The theme of this tour seem to be that the captains have been getting the blame for the poor bowling of the spinners.  

Chris: The only difference between these sides in the Test series was home advantage. Exactly the same in this match.  

Ind 339-7

Need 12 runs to win

Ashwin was probably a better bet up the order than Jadeja - he's doing exactly what's required, calmly hitting ones and twos to chip away at this total.

Just 12 runs and India are home. They've hardly ever been behind the asking rate. A masterful chase.

Ind 335-7

Another short ball. Another wide. India need 16 runs from 23 balls.

Simon Hughes

BBC Test Match Special commentator

India have done brilliantly to get to this position and they just have to see it home now. There is nothing in the pitch for the bowlers. Somehow England have to conjure a wicket. 

Ind 334-7

Target 351

This is better from Ashwin than Jadeja's jumpy innings - playing the ball on merit to work two and put Pandya on strike for the next over.

This would be the joint fourth-highest run chase in ODI history by the way.

Ind 329-7

A colleague on the cricket desk said a few overs back that this was turning into a bit of a beating for England (OK, he didn't use the word beating but use your imagination).

It's maybe not quite in that category after a couple of wickets but India have almost ridiculed the tourists at times in this chase - Pandya the latest to do so with a sumptuous late glance through third man for four.

Ind 325-7

Need 26 runs to win

Very muddled thinking from Jadeja there - can his spin twin R Ashwin deliver?

He doesn't have to if Hardik Pandya plays more shots like this - a gorgeous cover drive off Ball that slams across the boundary rope.

Isa Guha

Ex-England seamer on BBC Test Match Special

Jake Ball's short ball has been effective today - three wickets from him now and a wonderful bit of bowling. 

WICKET

Jadeja c Rashid b Ball 13 (Ind 319-6)

...but with a wicket, England might still be in this.

India were getting a bit jumpy out there and it translates into Jadeja's horrid miscue off Jake Ball, which Adil Rashid gratefully holds on to.

Another twist.

Ind 318-6

Target 351

A tidy over from Stokes, with only four coming off it. 

But without a wicket India are firmly in control.

Isa Guha

Ex-England seamer on BBC Test Match Special

If Stokes had gathered that and taken down the stumps, that would have been out. England aren't taking their opportunities. 

Ind 315-6

For the second time in two overs, Moeen Ali has the chance of a run out as India needlessly panic.

The first led to overthrows after Jason Roy's misfield, this time Stokes can't collect Moeen's throw...

Isa Guha

Ex-England seamer on BBC Test Match Special

England need wickets - that's the only way you're going to get dot balls. 

Ind 314-6

Jadeja 12, Pandya 16

They don't need boundaries, but they'll take them if presented - Jake Ball drops short again and Jadeja pulls him in front of square for four.

The short ball has brought some wickets today but leaked a lot of runs.

Sloppy fielding won't help either, an overthrow boosting India's cause. Sloppy bowling is even worse as Ball bowls a wide. A single to end and nine off the over.

England are in hail mary territory here.

Prakash Wakankar

BBC Test Match Special commentator

If India don't lose wickets, there is likely to be only one result. England have to go for it. There is no way they are going to defend this, one feels. 

Ind 305-6

Target 351

Eoin Morgan finally gambles and brings back a spinner, turning to Moeen Ali.

A dab into the legside for one from Jadeja brings up the 300.

India don't need to go all out for boundaries here - both batsmen happy to work Moeen around and rotate the strike.

Ian: Only missing by a foot, hit above the bails and rising, utterly inept review.   

not-outInd 299-6

A wasteful review from England really - maybe more tactical to slow the game down than anything else.

It looked too high and duly was. A dot ball to end the over.

Umpire review

Lovely from Ravindra Jadeja, nothing wrong with Stokes' delivery but a delicately-timed back-foot push finds the fence.

Stokes then appeals for an lbw shout against Jadeja...

Ind 291-6

Target 351

The equation is simple for India - 60 runs from 60 balls.

It's simple for England too - four wickets to win.

Into the last 10 overs. Here we go...
