3rd ODI: Root, Morgan Star As England Beat India To Clinch Series 2-1 

An unbeaten 186-run partnership between Joe Root (100 not out) and Eoin Morgan (88 not out) powered England to an eight-wicket victory over India in the third and final ODI at Headingley, Leeds on Tuesday. The win ended India’s nine-match bilateral series winning-run as England clinched the three-match series 2-1 despite losing the opening ODI. Morgan, winning the toss, elected to field as the English bowlers produced a disciplined bowling attack to restrict the hosts to a modest 256/8 in 50 overs. In reply, England overhauled the target in just 44.3 overs. England got to a flying start, courtesy Johnny Bairstow’s 30 off 13 balls. However, his stay in the middle was cut short by Shardul Thakur and India got a much-needed breakthrough. Courtesy: NDTV
