India captain Rohit Sharma won the toss and opted to bowl against England.

Kohli was seen arriving with his teammates ahead of the match despite, media reports suggesting the former India captain was likely to miss out on the first ODI due to a suspected groin injury.

The star batsman did not come for optional practice on Monday ahead of the first ODI match at Kensington Oval, London. As per ANI's sources in the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), he has a suspected groin injury and is unlikely to play the first ODI.

The source further stated that a medical test was conducted and it was found that the Virat has sustained mild strain.
