Matt Parkinson made his international debut for England when he was handed over his maiden ODI cap during the first One Day International against South Africa at Newlands Cricket Ground in Cape Town on Wednesday. He could not make any impact on his debut and went wicketless in his 8.4 overs where he conceded 48 runs at an economy rate of 5.54. However, it was his insulting remarks against Indian cricketing megastars Virat Kohli and MS Dhoni a few years ago that made the angry fans come forward to settle scores.
