Amidst these, Prasidh Krishna made a huge impact on his debut as he went on to take four wickets against England in the first ODI in Pune. On his way to this match-winning performance, he also became the first Indian debutante to take four wickets and therefore this was also the best bowling figure by any Indian on ODI debut.
