India captain Virat Kohli has won the toss and elected to bowl against England in the first ODI in Nottingham.

Kohli has no problems chasing despite the fact the last time England were put into bat at this venue, they posted a massive 481 against Australia.

"Our strengths are different, with the two wrist spinners bowling in the middle overs. We chased well in the T20 series against England," reasons the India captain.

India have brought back left-arm chinaman spinner Kuldeep Yadav back into the team in place of Deepak Chahar as the only change in the team which played in the third T20 against England.

For England, Alex Hales misses out as Moeen Ali comes into the team.
16:25  India start as favourites against England:  On a high after an impressive Twenty20 series win, an upbeat India will eye another dominant performance against hosts England in a three- match ODI series, starting in Nottingham, on Thursday.

The three-match ODI series will give Virat Kohli & his team an ideal opportunity to get a drift about the conditions that his men are expected to encounter at the 50-overs World Cup at exactly same time next year.

While India will be buoyed by their 2-1 T20 series win, England, the top ranked ODI team in world cricket, come into the series having crushed a below-par Australia 6-0 in their last bilateral engagement.

England have been one of the finest 50 over sides in recent times and India will have their task cut against a batting line-up comprising Jos Buttler, Jason Roy, Alex Hales, Jonny Bairstow and Eoin Morgan.Add Ben Stokes to it and England bear a formidable look.
