England rock, India roll..

Eng beat India by 86 runs in 2nd ODI

Rashid was the man of the match and seems to be benefiting from concentrating exclusively on the white ball game; he is so much more confident in this format than in Test cricket.

Virender Sehwag has blamed the batsmen after India meekly surrendered the series-decider to England on Tuesday.

Vince's frustrating England career has seen him repeatedly get out on Tuesday he fell for a run-a-ball 27, although it needed a brilliant one-handed take by wicket-keeper Dhoni, from Hardik Pandya's throw, to run him out.

Scoring at nearly run-a-ball, Karthik helped India cross the 100-run mark in the 20th over and put on 41 runs with Kohli for the third wicket. Pacers Liam Plunkett and David Willey combining well whileAdil Rashid, Adil Rashid and Mark Wood supporting the duo handsomely. In the end, he was dismissed after scoring just 2 runs in 16 deliveries. Only Kohli got a half-century, after he was dropped on 23.

But Stokes ran out Dhawan for a fluent 44 with direct hit after the left-handed opener was sent back by Kohli.

Their 50-run partnership came off only 53 balls. Can the Men in Blue maintain this run? I just stuck to my basics and bowled wicket to wicket and varied my pace.

England have won the toss and will bowl first. Leaving out KL Rahul for Dinesh Karthik made little sense and the decision to play Bhuvneshwar Kumar over Umesh Yadav also backfired.

The 2-1 defeat at the hands of England, has shown that India are not the only favourites for the World Cup. If Roy misses out, Hampshire captain James Vince could be in line for his first ODI appearance in almost two years, although Monday saw England call up Kent's Sam Billings as additional batting cover for the series finale in Leeds.

The visitors dominated England, the No. 1 ODI side, in all departments of the game and took a crucial 1-0 lead in the series with 59 balls to spare.

Perhaps the tension was only really evident in the Indian side as, for the second match in succession, England's wrist-spinner, Adil Rashid, proved to be the most effective of the three on view - that must be some kind of record against India. Suresh Raina (46 runs), Virat Kohli (45) and Shikhar Dhawan all put up a fighting effort, but went in vain.

Fittingly, they were guided to a 2-1 series victory by an unbroken third-wicket...

They easily handled the threat of India spinners Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal, who combined for 20 overs, conceded 96 overs, and no wickets. But once they did, they ensured that from 6 it came down to 3 in the second game and then finally a wicket-less spell in the last ODI.

Opener Alex Hales has missed the whole of the series with India with a side strain while Dawid Malan, his replacement, has already been released to take part in the second-string England Lions' four-day match with India A. Vince lost his Test place at the start of the season in one of the first major decisions by new England selection chief Ed Smith.
