England coasts to ODI series win over India behind Joe Root's century

Root's impressive century lifted England to a 2-1 series victory over India, and he became England's leading one-day global century-maker.

After containing India to 256-8, England's Joe Root and captain Eoin Morgan combined for an unbeaten 186 runs to get them home with 33 balls to spare. "The bowlers did well, especially their spinners who didn't get greedy and contained the runs before getting wickets eventually", said Kohli.

With this win, England exacted revenge for their 1-2 loss against India in the twenty20 series.

Under Dhoni's captaincy, India lifted the 50-over World Cup in 2011 and the World Twenty20 in 2007. It should be noted that England too were without Chris Woakes, the leader of their ODI attack, as well as batsman Alex Hales, who scored a massive hundred against the Australians as England racked up a world record total 481 at Trent Bridge in June.

The third and final match of the series will be on 17th of July at the Leeds in Headingly.

Chelsea looking to pip Liverpool to Alisson signing
Alison Becker stunned Liverpool fans by making an announcement on social media about joining Liverpool as their new goalkeeper. After making such a statement with their offer, it is unlikely Liverpool will be put off by the asking price.

If conditions remain warm and dry, then England will have to negotiate plenty of spin during the Test series, which promises to be a fantastic contest.

Specifically, two brilliant pieces of cricket turned the game in England's favour.

Moeen Ali (24) and Adil Rashid (22) added a few quick runs ro help England cross the 250-run mark before they were all out in the final over with a delivery left. Against the new ball it was two-paced but slow with the spinners. Joe Root continued his poor shot selection in the first match also while skipper Eoin Morgan failed to utilise the start.

The partnership between Kohli and Dhawan is now 54 runs. Jonny Bairstow had hit seven boundaries in nine deliveries before gently clipping the ball to mid-wicket. He was dropped on 85.

Roy sustained a laceration to the little finger of his right hand while fielding during England's 86-run victory over India at Lord's on Saturday and a team spokesman said Monday: "He remains a doubt for tomorrow (Tuesday) and will have a fitness test in the morning at the ground to ascertain whether he'll be fit to play".

"He continually gets key batsmen out at key times".

"Kohli was set - he was thinking 150".

India's innings began with unaccustomed wariness mainly because Wood and Willey found not only a good length but also a hint of swing.

Kohli, during his knock, became the fastest ODI captain to reach 3000 runs. We were 25 or 30 short. "England were really clinical with the ball, bat and the field as well". We were not good enough. We need to be at our best against a team like England. Credit goes to them. "The two spinners bowled well in partnership".

"We thought Dinesh did well, but he couldn't convert his start, so I don't regret the batting order changes". He might have set off earlier for a sharp single; he was perhaps unlucky that Dhoni redirected the ball on to the stumps so deftly.
