So that brings us to the end of cricket in coloured clothing in England. All eyes to 5-Tests that have gained a lot of hype and there will more as we move towards August. A break of almost a fortnight before we get there. Hope you enjoyed our coverage and as always thank you for your company. Will see you soon. For all the news, updates, opinions and a lot more keep visiting

00:43 (IST)

Eoin Morgan, England captain: Outstanding. The tone was set by the bowlers early on David Willey and Mark Wood. The ball swung a little for 4-5 overs.There was no let up. We know the conditions really well and we took advantage of that it. It was never going to be belter but it was a good wicket, maybe 300-320, but the spinners bowled brilliantly. They guys at my right made my decisions look good. As a captain, you are only good as your team. We were off the mark at Trent Bridge and India punished us.and since then we have done well, and grown as much as we could. It's satisfying that we learnt over the series, made plans, and executed what we said we'd do. So that builds confidence in the team. Time wise there is long way to go. We need to be at our best going into the World Cup.

00:40 (IST)

English players come on the podium to collect their winners medallions.

00:39 (IST)

Virat Kohli, India captain: I thought we were 25-30 runs less. We were just not good enough. Initially, with the new ball , it was two pace and in the middle, it became slow. Those two spinners again bowled well in partnership. No, not the batting order. I thought Dinesh was actually going well. Bhuvi is experience and Shardul has done well and we thought of giving him the exposure. When the changes come off, they look good and when they don't, they do not look good. These losses will give us a look what needs to be done before the World Cup. These losses will tell us exactly what needs to be rectified. Test series is going to be very challenging. It is going to be a hard fought series and we are looking forward to the challenge. It was a quality ball. I am playing against him from U19 days. Just the kind of deliveries where you just stand and give respect. 

00:35 (IST)

Joe Root: It feels fantastic to come into a big series and to see our team perform the way we did is great. It was on the slower side but was pretty good wicket. Because of bowlers hardwork there wasn't much scoreboard pressure. Doing the right things and prepare well. Putting real faith in your game and backing your game. Nice to turn it around. We have obviously done well in the last few games. Really pleased about it today, hopefully we keep moving forward. India has played some real good Test cricket.

00:32 (IST)

Joe Root is the Player of the Series. He hit two centuries in this series.

00:32 (IST)

Rashid: It was nice. All the seamers bowler well. Moeen Ali and I got in well and got reward. The plan remains the same. Stick to the strength. You go in the nets, you work hard, games give you confidence. Yes, getting Kohli out gave immense confidence. Big crowd at Headingley, always nice to play here. 

00:30 (IST)

Adil Rashid is the Player of the Match

00:26 (IST)

So India's nine-series' winning streak has ended... and in tame fashion really... last ball hundred for Root despite some shady antics from Pandya... and then came the bat drop... almost like a mic drop that... we should stop talking about wrist spin now probably. 

Root turned a corner against spin in this series and since then England haven't let up at all... India have been shown up in a lot of aspects, especially their middle order and lower order batting, their pace bowling and indeed when their fielding is put under pressure. They might one of the favourites for next year's World Cup but if you look at just the last two games, there is plenty wrong with them. 

India have a five-day break now... before the practice game ahead of the Test series. Some time to think for the selectors ahead of the Test series, or just some time off... but make no mistake, this side is not World Cup ready just yet.

Yep, the conditions and the pitch were much favourable to the visiting side more than it helped the home side. England did play better cricket.

00:18 (IST)


00:18 (IST)

This is England's eighth consecutive bilateral ODI series win and India's first bilateral ODI series defeat under the captaincy of Virat Kohli.

Umang Pabari, Cricket statistician

Most centuries for England in ODIs:

13 - JOE ROOT*
12 - Marcus Trescothick 
10 - Eoin Morgan 
9 - Kevin Pietersen 

Umang Pabari, Cricket statistician

00:15 (IST)

This series loss against England ends India's nine consecutive series wins which began in June-2016. 

This is also the first time that India have lost a decider in a three-match ODI series since 1998. 

Umang Pabari, Cricket statistician
00:15 (IST)
00:11 (IST)

England win 3rd ODI by 8 wickets to claim the 3-match ODI series 2-1.

To make things sweeter, Joe Root gets to his second hundred in as many ODIs with a boundary to mid wicket, which is also the winning shot. 

Couple off the first ball. A wide on off side followed and then after a dot. Root smacked a high full toss to mid wicket fence to cap of the win and series bringing his 13th ODI century. 

There is *bat drop* from Joe Root to celebrate his ton and the victory.

So India win T20I series 2-1.

England take the ODIs 2-1

All to play for the 5-match Tests that starts in August.

00:09 (IST)

After 44 overs,England 253/2 ( Joe Root 94 , Eoin Morgan (C) 88)

With Morgan and Root having decided that they will take their own sweet time to reach the target, Indian bowlers have decided to slip a few wide deliveries as we crawl towards the target. 4 more runs needed. The 45th over should surely be the last over.

00:05 (IST)

After 43 overs,England 250/2 ( Joe Root 93 , Eoin Morgan (C) 87)

Hardik is called back to bowl his 5th over. Bhuvi fluffs a chance, wouldn't have mattered in the context of the game but Hardik is denied a wicket. Couple of wides, one because of height and the other down the leg side. Throw in few singles and now England seven runs away. Just exactly how much Root needs for back-to-back ton. It will Morgan who will take strike though. Come on Root strike couple of boundaries and own a record.

00:04 (IST)

India cannot catch a break as Bhuvi puts down Morgan... not as if it would have changed anything but India's fielding today has been shambolic.. 

Chetan Narula, Freelance Cricket journalist at Headingley
00:04 (IST)
00:02 (IST)

DROPPED! Morgan's eyes light up on seeing the full toss, wanted to hit the screws off that delivery, but strikes it to long on and Bhuvneshwar Kumar spills it. Bowler Hardik has his hands over his head. Morgan dropped on 85.

00:01 (IST)

After 42 overs,England 244/2 ( Joe Root 91 , Eoin Morgan (C) 85)

Into the 90s now Joe Root. Played a gorgeous straight drive to collect four more. England crawling towards victory. India batted this way throughout the innings. 13 more needed.

23:58 (IST)

FOUR! We have had some sublime strokeplay today and here's another one, perhaps one of the best in the lot. Just a push from Root, who presents the full face as the ball races straight down the ground for four

23:56 (IST)

After 41 overs,England 239/2 ( Joe Root 86 , Eoin Morgan (C) 85)

Another over where Root and Morgan work three singles. Are in no rush whatsoever. Come on lads, take this home with some still.

23:51 (IST)

After 40 overs,India 196/6 ( MS Dhoni (W) 27 , Bhuvneshwar Kumar 2)

Shardul Thakur is back on. The Indian dressing room looks gloomy, sad faces all around. They can see the result of this match easily. Not enough room left for India to make any sort of comeback. England need 21 runs in 60 balls.

23:49 (IST)

Shardul Thakur comes into the attack. 

23:48 (IST)

After 39 overs,India 195/6 ( MS Dhoni (W) 27 , Bhuvneshwar Kumar 1)

Bhuvneshwar continues. Both the batsmen are in 80s now and with under 30 runs required, only one of them can reach to the three-figure mark. There can be a case where both stop in their 90s. It does not really matter. The bigger picture is that in any scenario, England are winning this. Need 24 runs in 67 balls

23:44 (IST)

Bhuvneshwar back on. 

23:44 (IST)

After 38 overs,India 192/5 ( MS Dhoni (W) 27 , Hardik Pandya 19)

Kuldeep continues. He has bowled well, tossed the ball up to the batsmen. But against in-form Root and Morgan, his mojo seems to be not working. England cruising, England need 28 runs in 72 balls.

23:43 (IST)

SIX! Little short, enough for Morgan to rock back and dispatch it between deep mid-wicket and long-on, that brings up 150-run partnership between him and Root.

23:41 (IST)

Kuldeep continues

23:38 (IST)

After 37 overs,India 190/5 ( MS Dhoni (W) 26 , Hardik Pandya 18)

Bhuvneshwar is back into the attack but does not bring his mojo back. Root and Morgan continue to play it so easily and take singles. Gavaskar on commentary says, 'England fans should be worried that Root does not convert his fifties and sixties into big ones to Alan Wilkins replies, "Indian fans will be hoping the same happens when the Test begins." This is more of an interesting battle than that going on in the middle at the moment.England need 38 to win 78 balls.

23:34 (IST)

Bhuvneshwar Kumar back into the attack. 

23:33 (IST)

After 36 overs,India 181/5 ( MS Dhoni (W) 25 , Hardik Pandya 10)

Kuldeep comes into the attack. Morgan and Root have given a lesson in batting to India today. What a solid partnership, something which India lacked in their innings. They have solved the Kuldeep puzzle so, so well and India now looking down to loss of series. England need 44 runs to win.

23:33 (IST)

After 35 overs,England 211/2 ( Joe Root 74 , Eoin Morgan (C) 69)

Even before we could see visuals at the batsmen's end to check if Joe Root got his foot back in or not. Chahal had overstpped and it has been called a no-ball. Tell you what, Root was gone, again MS Dhoni was lightening quick behind the stumps. Joe Root smashes the free-hit for a boundary. That kind of a day. India is having. One turned sharply to beat Morgan's stumps.

23:31 (IST)

FOUR! Joe Root makes full use of the free-hit as Joe Root clears front leg to tonk it to long on fence.

23:30 (IST)

Crowd not interested and doing Mexican waves... England past 200... and now a no ball to crown it as Root gets a life from stumping... This game is now in the same pointless zone as in the last 10 overs at Lord's. 

Chetan Narula, Freelance Cricket journalist at Headingley
23:30 (IST)
23:26 (IST)

FOUR! Dragged down by Chahal and with the ball turning into Morgan, it had four written all over it. Morgan pulls and takes four to deep mid wicket.

23:25 (IST)

After 34 overs,England 196/2 ( Joe Root 68 , Eoin Morgan (C) 64)

Kuldeep had Joe Root in some discomfort with a wrong'un outside off stump, but Root's concentration isn't going to break easily. Watches till the end to go back and defend. Three runs off Kuldeep's over. 61 needed off 96.

23:22 (IST)

After 33 overs,England 193/2 ( Joe Root 67 , Eoin Morgan (C) 62)

Doing it with a lot of ease these two. Swept Chahal for five singles in the over. Chahal has completed his 9th over. 64 needed off 102 balls.

23:18 (IST)

After 32 overs,England 188/2 ( Joe Root 65 , Eoin Morgan (C) 59)

Slip and leg slip for Joe Root. He gets a brace with french cut and then he turns the strike over with a single to long on. Morgan playing Kuldeep with much more ease compared to how he batted at the start of his innings. Four runs off the over. England 69 away.

23:15 (IST)

Kuldeep Yadav gets another go.

23:15 (IST)

After 31 overs,England 184/2 ( Joe Root 62 , Eoin Morgan (C) 58)

Chahal bowls his 8th over of the match. Still a leg slip in position for Morgan. After first three balls, he changes his angle to go round the wicket. Morgan flicks it for a single to deep mid wicket. Root pulls to deep square for one.

23:12 (IST)

Chahal is called back into the attack.

23:11 (IST)

After 30 overs,England 181/2 ( Joe Root 60 , Eoin Morgan (C) 57)

Don't know if you would call that a drop or not. Thakur's delivery down the leg side takes a tickle off Joe Root's bat with the ball dipping on diving MS Dhoni. He just about gets there with the ball coming in contact with the ground, unable to get his mittens underneath to grasp it cleanly. Boundary off the first ball and couple of singles off the over, to make it 6 runs of the 30th over. England need 76 runs in 120 balls, still have 8 wickets in hand.

23:08 (IST)

This is the ninth century stand between Joe Root and Eoin Morgan in ODIs. No other England pair has added more than five.

Umang Pabari, Cricket statistician
23:08 (IST)
23:08 (IST)

FOUR! Couple of bounces and into the fence! Thakur tries the short ball and was well-directed as well, but Morgan was up to the task, swivels and pulls for four to long leg.

23:06 (IST)

After 29 overs,England 175/2 ( Joe Root 59 , Eoin Morgan (C) 52)

A tap to third man from Root brings the 100-run partnership. Pandya bowls a tidy over giving away just three singles but wicket is what India want. 82 runs required off 126 deliveries.

23:04 (IST)

After 28 overs,England 172/2 ( Joe Root 58 , Eoin Morgan (C) 50)

Shardul Thakur continues. He is into his sixth over. The partnership between Root and Morgan is now worth 98. England need 85. Seven more from Thakur's over. India's shoulders start to drop as England continue their march.

23:02 (IST)

FIFTY! The England ODI skipper raises his half-century off 58 balls. Struggled in the start of his innings, but once he overcame the initial phase, Morgan did play a perfect foil to Joe Root and then gradually started to play his strokes.

23:00 (IST)

FOUR! Outside edge from Morgan and it runs down to third man fence. Not the best pieces of fielding by Bhuvneshwar Kumar at third man. Even Sourav Ganguly on air isn't impressed.

22:58 (IST)

After 27 overs,England 165/2 ( Joe Root 57 , Eoin Morgan (C) 43)

Root gets off strike with a single to deep cover. Hardik goes round the stumps to Eoin Morgan, who punches off the backfoot for a couple to deep extra cover. Three more singles off the last three balls.

India vs England 2018, 3rd ODI at Headingely, latest update and cricket score: England win 2nd ODI by 8 wickets and wins the 3-match ODI series 2-1. To make things sweeter, Joe Root gets to his second hundred in as many ODIs with a boundary to mid wicket, which is also the winning shot.

Preview: After losing the second One-Day International (ODI), India will aim to improve performance in every department when they face confident England in the third and final match at the Headingley Cricket ground on Tuesday.

England levelled the three-match series with a convincing 86-run victory at Lord's, having been comprehensively beaten in the opening match at Trent Bridge.

After first ODI victory, India made couple of mistakes in the second match. First, the bowlers leaked few extra runs which helped England post a challenging total and then batsmen failed to rise to the occasion.

Apart from Suresh Raina and skipper Virat Kohli, no other batsman could face English bowlers perfectly. Wicketkeeper Mahendra Singh Dhoni and Shikhar Dhawan, however, got the good starts but could able to utilise it.

Middle-order batsmen KL Rahul, Rohit Sharma and Hardik Pandya also drastically failed. So, in order to give English bowlers tough times in the middle, Indian batting line-up must click in unison.

In the bowling department, Kuldeep was the only wicket-taker. He scalped three wickets but gave away 68 runs in his 10 overs. Pacers Umesh Yadav, Hardik and debutant Sidharth Kaul were also costly. Bowlers now have to come up with something new to disturb the opponents as Root, Morgan, Jason Roy and Jonny Bairstow have already come to form.

England, on the other hand, learned quickly from a poor display in the first match and especially against chinaman Kuldeep, who claimed 6 for 25. Joe Root and skipper Eoin Morgan also came in form with the brilliant knocks of 113 and 53 respectively.

Jason Roy and Bairstow displayed the glimpses of coming back in form with disciplined batting throughout their innings. So the top-order seemed settled the only worry of the hosts is their middle and lower order. Ben Stokes, Jos Buttler and Moeen Ali could not add much to the score after a brilliant start. If the trio clicked in the final match then it could be a difficult task for the Indian batsmen.

England has improved a lot in the bowling department. Bowlers are hunting in pairs. Pacers Liam Plunkett and David Willey combining well while Adil Rashid and Mark Wood supporting the duo handsomely. The bowling economy is not above six which is a good sign for English players especially when the opponent team is chasing the target.

Skipper Morgan have not used Stokes much in the second ODI. So in the upcoming match, Morgan, who has the penalty of options in in bowling department, mat try all his bowlers to their potential to get the results.


India: Virat Kohli (Captain), Shikhar Dhawan, Rohit Sharma, KL Rahul, MS Dhoni (Wicket-keeper), Dinesh Karthik, Suresh Raina, Hardik Pandya, Kuldeep Yadav, Yuzvendra Chahal, Shreyas Iyer, Siddarth Kaul, Axar Patel, Umesh Yadav, Shardul Thakur, Bhuvneshwar Kumar

England: Eoin Morgan (Captain), Jason Roy, Jonny Bairstow, Jos Buttler (Wicket-keeper), Moeen Ali, Joe Root, Jake Ball, Tom Curran, Alex Hales, Liam Plunkett, Ben Stokes, Adil Rashid, David Willey, Mark Wood.
