Here's a look at some of the records created and broken during India vs England ODI series.

India won the first ODI due to Kuldeep Yadav's magical spell while England won the next two ODIs to seal the series with the brilliance of Joe Root. As a result, both the teams have won three matches each so far on this tour which will make the upcoming Test series more intriguing.

Indian openers along with Virat Kohli played well as always but the middle-order found it tough to put in a strong performance which eventually put India on the back foot in last two ODIs. India will have to find the right combination especially in the middle-order before the 2019 World Cup begins otherwise it can hurt them in crucial encounters. They also need to find backups for both Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Jasprit Bumrah as the bowlers with whom they played in the series — Umesh Yadav and Siddarth Kaul — were largely ineffective.

On the other hand, England must be happy to see their Test captain back in form. The Three Lions proved once again that why it is hard to beat them at home and why they are No.1 ranked ODI side. They showed real intent in winning the series after losing the first ODI.

The Test series is expected to be intriguing as ever but let's look at some of the records broken and created during the ODI series.

Kuldeep Yadav took six wickets in the first ODI played at Nottingham without conceding a boundary which helped India to win the match by eight wickets. His figures are the fourth best bowling figures by an Indian player in ODIs. His six-wicket haul was also the first by a spinner in ODIs in England.
