Liam Livingstone makes his ODI debut
Right-handed batsman Liam Livingstone makes his ODI debut for England. He was roped in the XI in place of injured Sam Billings. The 27-year-old has already represented England in two T20Is in 2017. Livingstone was in terrific form in the Big Bash League 2020/21, playing for Perth Scorchers. It remains to be seen how he fares in his debut ODI.
A look at the other changes
The number one T20I batsman Dawid Malan has come into the XI in place of skipper Morgan. He was with England's ODI touring party as a cover player. Meanwhile, fast bowler Reece Topley, who came in for Mark Wood, would be the player to watch for, owing to his tall structure. For India, the in-form Pant is back in the ODI format.
