England cricket team’s gesture to help an injured spectator during the first ODI match against India is winning hearts on social media. Indian skipper Rohit Sharma slammed a lovely six early in his innings off David Willey. However, his brilliant shot hit a little girl at the Kennington Oval ground in London.
Chasing 111 runs, Indian openers Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan got the team off to a good start. Rohit Sharma looked in good touch, trying to take on the England bowlers. In the fifth over, he swiveled across and hit a short delivery from David Willey over long leg for a six.
Unfortunately, the ball hit a little girl in the stands. The England cricket team send their physio to look after the girl. Their gesture won the hearts of the fans on social media with people showering praise. There has been no official update yet on the little girl from the stadium.
“A little girl has been hit with the ball after Rohit Sharma’s six. Great gesture by England to send their physios. Hope she’s alright!,” wrote a fan, Mufaddal Vohra on Twitter.

Indian pacers wreck havoc, as England gets bowled out for 110 runs
Earlier in the match, India won the toss and opted to bowl first. Their bowlers proved the decision right, as they bowled England out for a paltry 110 runs. Pacer Jasprit Bumrah ran through the England batting attack. He picked six wickets in 7.2 overs conceding nineteen runs at an economy rate of 2.6. Bumrah broke the back of the England team, who couldn’t recover from his initial spell.
Pacers Mohammed Shami and Prasidh Krishna also picked three and one wicket each in the match. The first innings witnessed as many as four ducks from the English batters. England skipper Joe Root was the leading run-scorer for his team, with thirty runs off thirty-two deliveries.
