commentary

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

An Indian lad in the crowd pounces on the LED hoardings to trace the ball as some of the England spectators cheer him up, he takes his time before nestling the ball in his fingers and tossing the ball back into play.

0
Kuldeep Yadav to Root, no run, no pace, just flies off like a paper rocket and drops at Root's feet, negated with a stride forward

It's drinks I guess. England need 38 and India need 8 wickets. 13 overs left. That should summarize today's proceedings for you

36.5
1
Bhuvneshwar to Morgan, 1 run, 'going through the motions' is the mood from the Indian camp. Bhuvi looks totally off radar, offers a easy single down to third man. Just sit back and glide it wherever you can

Chahal to Root, FOUR, makes use of the freebie with a thump over mid-wicket, clears his front leg and smashes the life out of that delivery
34.5
1
Chahal to Root, no ball, appeal for stumping! Root's the man in question: It looks to be a front foot no ball from Chahal. Tv ump. Ruchira Palliyaguruge feels that Chahal got nothing (*absolutely nothing*) behind the line and he has conveyed the same to onfield umpire Bruce Oxenford. Not out and guess what Root got nothing behind the line either. He would have been out had this been a legal delivery. A classic leggie delivery this, drew Root forward and beat him on the outside edge, Dhoni was quick to whip the bails, but only if.....
34.4
3
Chahal to Morgan, byes, 3 runs, that's beaten everyone! Legbreak from Chahal, may have landed on the rough and thus, it bounced awkwardly before beating Morgan's bat and Dhoni's gloves. Raina, I believe, gave the chase and managed to haul the ball back in just inside the ropes

SN Thakur to Root, no run, dropped by MSD! A tiny feather as Root looked to help/glance one past the keeper. It flew low to the left of Dhoni who couldn't time his dive as the ball bounced inches in front of his mitts. Tough chance, but should have been taken
29.2
1
SN Thakur to Morgan, 1 run, nailed the off-drive, mid-off gets around and stops its tracks with a dive
29.1
4
SN Thakur to Morgan, FOUR, you gotta need some extra oomph to create troubles to Morgan with a short ball. The 130ks aren't going to trouble him; half-swivels and bullies the ball to the deep square fence with an air of authority

27.3

Hardik Pandya to Morgan, 1 run, 128ks , bowls it into the pads from round the wicket, Morgan walks across slightly and fails to get any bat on the chip/flick. Aaaaaaand they nab another extra via a legbye. The scoreboard keeps motoring along. Oh hang on! It apeared as if Morgan missed that, but he may have gotten a tiny bit of bat on that.

Chahal to Morgan, no run, a huge 'no' call by Morgan as soon as he punches the short one in front of mid-off. He was on his back foot, hence there was no chance of him completing the single. That is, if at all he'd called for it

20.5

Raina to Morgan, FOUR, successive boundaries for the English skipper. This was a touch full outside off, Morgan plays an uppish drive and manages to beat the diving fielder at cover. Is this the same track, India were batting on? Doesn't look like!

Raina to Morgan, FOUR, 50-run stand up! How easy are these two making batting look. This was tossed up around off, Morgan went inside-out and found the fence at cover

0
Chahal to Root, no run, floated around middle and off, Root comes ahead and angles it in front of point

Drinks are on the field now! Morgan and Root have made the most of that start given by the openers. They are rotating the strike nicely and also getting those odd-boundaries. The required run rate is only 4.45 and with 8 wickets in hand, England should fancy their chances.

18.6
4
Raina to Morgan, FOUR, a loosener to end the over! That has been the problem with India. They have bowled quite a few freebies in this innings. This was short on middle and leg, Morgan was quick to pick the length and finds the mid-wicket fence with a ferocious pull off his back foot. That boundary will spoil the over. Was bowling really well, until he bowled this half-tracker

Chahal to Morgan, 1 run, that could have been a maiden! Chahal is keeping things tight but runs are flowing from the other end. This was on the pads and Morgan tucks it away into the deep and denies the leg spinner a maiden. Good over, nevertheless. A few more of these and India have a chance of building the pressure. Or else, it's quickly slipping away from their grasp

Kuldeep Yadav to Morgan, no run, tossed up delivery around off, spinning away from the batsman. Morgan tries to poke at it and gets beaten
14.2

Kuldeep Yadav to Root, 3 runs, overthrows! This was needless from the skipper. The batsman was well inside the crease on that occasion. Root eased it in front of cover and called for a single. Kohli has a needless shy at the bowler's end as the ball ricochets away and the batsmen take two more

Chahal to Root, FOUR, boundaries continue to flow. Either dot deliveries or boundary balls. The story of this innings. This was a full toss on middle and leg, Root goes down on his kneee and sweeps it sweetly through the gap at mid-wicket. No fielder in the deep as England's number 3 gets a boundary more

Kuldeep Yadav to Root, FOUR, India's fielding has been awful today. Shikhar Dhawan - the culprit on this occasion. Root was forward and he timed his cover-drive to perfection, but Dhawan at short cover fails to stop it as the ball runs away to the boundary

11.4
0
Chahal to Morgan, no run, appeal for an lbw turned down! Dhoni and Virat have a chat but decide against the review. This was probably spinning down the leg side. Morgan got beaten due to the leg-spin and was pinned on the pads. Missing leg, in my opinion

Kuldeep Yadav to Root, FOUR, Root won't miss out on that. A half-tracker on middle and leg, the batsman has ample of time to camp back and pull it away with disdain. Deep backward square leg sprints across but the connection was too good

Chahal to Morgan, FOUR, freebie and Morgan won't miss out. Short and wide, he stands tall and slaps it hard through the covers. India need to reduce their boundary deliveries if they want to win. Leaking far too many

Chahal to Morgan, no run, big appeal for LBW but perhaps too high. Turn on this leg break as Morgan premeditates the defensive stroke. Rapped on the pad. The Indians thought about the review, rightfully decided against it

Chahal to Root, out James Vince Run Out!! Brilliance from MSD! It was a wayward throw from Hardik at mid-wicket and MS did well to fling across to stick out his right hand, then whip off the bails all in one motion. James Vince was always struggling to get there but perhaps had a chance with the throw going off target. Dhoni had other ideas though and as it turns out, gone by a whisker. It was tucked into the leg-side and the call for a single was always a risky one. Error in judgment and that's a timely strike for India. James Vince run out (Hardik Pandya/Dhoni) 27(27) [4s-5]

Chahal to Root, THAT'S OUT!! Run Out!!

Run out appeal. Indians are confident. Vince is the man in question. Seems touch and go. In fact, he could just be short. Yes, he is!

Yuzvendra Chahal, right-arm leg break, comes into the attack

If there was any doubt that India needed to bowl England out for the win, it's been put to bed with the kind of start England have got

Bhuvneshwar to James Vince, FOUR, another pleasing stroke. Not even 10 overs into the chase and already, there's been a plethora of boundaries. All classy strokes as well. Short of a length outside off, Vince stands tall and punches it through the covers. Picked the gap well

Dhoni comes upto the stumps for Bhuvi.

SN Thakur to Root, leg byes, FOUR, more runs! Perhaps Dhoni should have stopped that, actually he should have but he hasn't. Fuller ball on leg, Root misses the flick and there is a stifled appeal as it goes down the leg-side. Dhoni is a touch slow to gather the ball and it sneaks past him to the fence

Bhuvneshwar to James Vince, no run, massive mix up! Throw is at the end wrong end and that saves Vince. Length ball that was worked past the bowler, Chahal from mid-on raced across to get to the ball and threw it quickly. Didn't hit the target and it goes to the other end where MS whips off the bails but too late. If it hit directly, even that would have done!

SN Thakur to Bairstow, out Caught by Raina!! What a soft, soft dismissal! Bairstow cannot believe what he has done here. Was looking supremely ominous but has to go now. Half-volley on the pads, if anything it probably just stuck onto the track a bit as Bairstow went for the flick. Didn't want to keep it down and connected slightly early I suppose. Hands a dolly to Raina at short mid-wicket. The Indians are pumped, they badly needed a wicket and it had to be Bairstow because such was the destruction he was causing. The bowling change works for Kohli. Bairstow c Raina b SN Thakur 30(13) [4s-7]

SN Thakur to James Vince, FOUR, the boundaries just keep coming. Bowling change doesn't matter at all. Shardul starts with a half volley on the pads, cannot do that with fine leg in the ring and Vince places the flick well wide of that fielder

Shardul Thakur, right-arm fast medium, comes into the attack

Serious concerns for Kohli. Doesn't have a big score on the board and already, England have eaten into the target quite a bit in the four overs bowled. As I type, there is a bowling change

3.6

Hardik Pandya to Bairstow, FOUR, another huge over! England are off the blocks in a flash! Courtesy Bairstow! Fraction short and the line isn't great either, he just shuffles a bit on the back foot to pull this away. Placed it well wide of short fine leg and nobody is stopping that

Hardik Pandya to Bairstow, FOUR, raining boundaries! Bairstow has decided to take the bowling apart. Gets a long half volley, slower ball and it's picked early as well. Dispatched with a fiery drive, wide of mid-off this time
3.2
4
Hardik Pandya to Bairstow, FOUR, pure class! Bairstow is looking ominous. Full and on middle and leg, not all that bad a ball but this is the class of the man. Bairstow just shuffles a tad and whips it wide of mid-on. Placement and timing just too good
3.1

Hardik Pandya to James Vince, 1 run, off the edge and it's gone a bit fine but Shardul at third man gets across quickly to his left. Shortish length, Vince's feet went nowhere on the punchy drive

Bhuvneshwar to Bairstow, FOUR, four boundaries in the over! All the pressure built over the previous two overs has been released. Fractionally short and a bit of width outside off, Bairstow stands tall and forces the punch past the diving point fielder. Was always going to be four once it beat the infield
2.5

Bhuvneshwar to Bairstow, FOUR, this has been smashed! What a stroke! Overpitched from Bhuvneshwar and it was asking to be hit but the execution was lovely. Bairstow used his hands to absolutely pump the drive wide of mid-off

Bhuvneshwar to Bairstow, no run, the hard length around off, the perfect line and length for this pitch. Stabbed to short cover

Bhuvneshwar to Bairstow, FOUR, goes over the leg-side this time. At his pace, Bhuvneshwar cannot bowl such half-trackers. Easy peasy for Bairstow who pulls it nonchalantly over mid-wicket. These two boundaries should get him going
2.2
4
Bhuvneshwar to Bairstow, FOUR, slapped away! One thing that you cannot do on this pitch is to provide room. Plenty of width outside off and it's shorter as well, Bairstow stands tall and flays it through cover. Power and precision

Bhuvneshwar to James Vince, FOUR, loosener from Bhuvneshwar first up and Vince wastes no time in getting on with things. Short and too wide outside off, he reaches out and stands tall to slap it through the covers. Rockets away

James Vince and Bairstow are at the crease. James Vince is on strike. Bhuvneshwar will open the attack
