Kareena Kapoor also shared a picture of Greenidge and Saif Ali Khan on her Instagram stories, along with other snaps from the match.
The first ODI saw India win the toss and opt to field.
The decision paid immediate dividends as Jasprit Bumrah and Mohammed Shami ran through England’s top order.
Jos Buttler tried to rescue his team, but Shami came back for his second spell to end his innings for 30.
Bumrah was India’s destroyer-in-chief with the ball, returning career-best figures of 6/19 from his 7.2 overs.
Mohammed Shami took three wickets, while Prasidh Krishna also claimed a scalp.
The chase was a straightforward one for India as Rohit Sharma hammered 76 off just 58 deliveries.
India chased down the target in just 18.2 overs to take a 1-0 lead in the three-match series.
