20:23 Local Time, 00:53 IST: We're well into Day 2 in our coverage and we've had another one-sided encounter to seal the series. However, the fight that both the teams have exhibited in a broader context, coming back after losses and never backing down, they're signature features of champion sides. India have a few questions to answer, regarding their bowling today, as well as their batting depth after the top-three. As for England, they're flying high at the moment, but they too need to address their bowling woes, which don't seem to be big problems after a win, but certainly were after the 1st ODI. An exceptional comeback in this series by the hosts, though, and a great exhibition of character and skill development. On that note, we move on from white, flat seams of the white Kookaburra to the proud protrusion of the crimson-red Dukes, come August 1: The first Test. The grandiose of a Test series in England is always a sight to behold. Anyway, I'm getting ahead of myself. For now, this is Rishi Roy, bidding you goodbye alongside Raju Peethala, Hariprasad, Nikhil Jadhav and Harish. See ya on the flip-side. *Curtains Down*

Eoin Morgan|England captain: Outstanding performance. The tone was set by the bowlers. Wood and Willey were on the money, had their lines and lengths down. The ball swung a little for 4-5 overs. We took our opportunities well whenever we got the chance. We know the conditions here well, and we are happy we took advantage of that. I didn't think it would be a belter, probably a 300-320 ground, but our spinners today were brilliant. The chase was started by the two openers, and then Joe and I carried on. It's the guys on my right, my team, that make my decision look good. You're only as good as your team. Our guys were brilliant. In Trent Bridge we were off, 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. We need to be at our best before the WC, and remove any glitches from our game.

The players go up on the podium to receive their medallions. Seems to be a preparation for the WC final next year.

Virat Kohli|India captain: We were never up to the mark as far as runs were concerned. We had 25-30 runs too little. England were clinical in all departments and throughly deserved to win. We need to be at our best against a team like England. The pitch was slow throughout the day which was surprising, not damp, just slow. Against the new ball it was two-paced but slow with the spinners. Haven't seen pitches like that here before. The bowlers did well, especially their spinners who didn't get greedy and contained the runs before getting wickets eventually. We thought Dinesh did well, but he couldn't convert his start, so I don't regret the batting order changes. Shardul was meant to get some exposure, and Bhuvi needed to make a comeback. When the changes don't come off, they look unnecessary so it must be taken in our stride. These kind of games will tell us what we need to improve upon for the WC. We need to have a good balance in the side, and we need to get our act right before the WC. We can't rely on one skill, and we need to do well in all departments. The Test squad is pretty settled, and it's going to be a lengthy series. We want to play tough cricket and we know the English side will provide us with that. (About the ball that got him out) I've been playing against Rashid since U-19 and it was a terrific ball, so it's just one of those balls that you have to take in your stride and say "Wow". I'm surprised that his turn has reduced over the years, but this one was an amazing ball.

Joe Root|Man of the Series (2 hundreds): It feels fantastic to come into a big series and perform well as a side. It's a testament to the hard work the guys did. We set the tone early with the ball, and kept taking wickets in the middle overs. In the death, we were good too, rather ruthless. Me and Morgan, we were calm and collected. It was on the slower side, but it was a good wicket. We could hit through the line. There was no scoreboard pressure, because of the hard work the bowlers did in the beginning of the game, so it was just about making sure we build a partnership and thankfully we managed to do that today. It's about putting faith in your game and backing your ability, so I'm happy I have done well in the last two games and I'll take the confidence into the Tests. We've done well here over the last few years. The pressure of this being a must-win game was important and I am happy I contributed. The Test series will be exciting. India has played well over the last few years, and we did well against Pakistan recently too, so hopefully we can replicate that in this series as well.

Adil Rashid|Man of the Match (3/49): All the seamers bowled really well. Me and Moeen kept it tight and got rewards. It's important to stick to our strengths. The seamers, Mo and I did exactly that. It's important to play well in the nets and that's where you need to get your confidence. It gives you confidence to dismiss someone like Kohli because he's one of the best players in the world. It's nice to play at my home ground at Headingley and incredible crowd support here today as well, so it was fantastic.

19:40 Local Time, 00:10 IST: A thumping win for England. What a comeback in the last two ODIs by the hosts, after being at the receiving end of a pasting in the T20 series and the first ODI. They've done their homework; they've done their work against Mr. Merlyn, and they've managed to keep the threat of Kuldeep and Chahal at bay. At least on this day, when the ball seemed to be stopping on the batsmen (read slow turn), the Englishmen had no problems surviving against the spinners. In fact, they attacked them and came out on top to win a one-sided encounter by 8 wickets. India, who started off poorly with the bat, were helped along by Virat, Dhoni and Dhawan (not to mention Bhuvi and Shardul at the death) to a competitive total on this track. However, some appalling fielding and an aberration of a bowling performance later, India have only themselves to blame. A wonderful performance by Root, in successive matches, as he scores another century at the top. This is India's first loss in a bilateral series under Kohli - it had to happen some day. It's also India's first loss in a bilateral ODI series since Australia 2016 (almost 2.5 years ago). A slew of stats and presentations coming right up.

Hardik Pandya to Root, FOUR, high full-toss, is it a no-ball? That remains to be seen. Root takes a step down the track with the courage of a lion-tamer, and pulls it away to the deep mid-wicket boundary. England win the series 2-1 and maintain their streak, and manage to break India's
