India vs England, 3rd ODI, Live Cricket Score and Updates

England thrashed India by eight wickets with 33 balls to spare, a victory far more straightforward than anyone could have expected and one of the most rewarding since the last World Cup.

Having split the limited-overs series - India won the Twenty20s, England the ODIs - the first of five tests begins on August 1 at Edgbaston. He smacked seven fours and rendered ineffective Indias new ball pairing of Bhuvneshwar Kumar (0-49) and Hardik Pandya (0-39).

This was Root's second unbeaten century in successive innings after his 113 not out helped England level the three-match contest with an 86-run win at Lord's on Saturday. MS Dhoni scored 42 runs but it was once again a slow knock courtesy of the wickets which fell at the other end and he got out when the time was actually up the ante.

David Willey and Adil Rashid finished with three wickets, whereas Mark Wood also earned a wicket.

After restricting India to 256/8, both Morgan and Root made light work of the run chase on a wicket that was assisting the spinners, with Kuldeep Yadav, the chief wicket-taker for the visitors in the first game, unable to bag a single scalp. Kohli clipped the ball to square leg but was not keen on a single. James Vince on his return to England colours settled easily, produced some graceful strokes and was then run out for an infuriating 27.

Eoin Morgan gently admonished Root, saying: 'A statement? Surprised, Kohli was out for 71 off 72 balls, including eight boundaries. In fact, the England batsman who looked clueless against Chinaman bowler Kuldeep Yadav earlier in the series, played him comfortably. Dhawan was run out for 44 by a brilliant piece of fielding from Ben Stokes and thereafter India lost wickets at regular intervals.

Why the International Monetary Fund revised India's growth projection and why it doesn't matter
The IMF has scaled down economic growth in Argentina and Brazil, besides India, among emerging market economies. The effect of the twin headwinds on the IMF's projection for 2019-20 was much sharper - 0.3 percentage points.

Dinesh Karthik (21) helped India cross 100 in the 20th over and put on 41 runs with Kohli for the third wicket.

A disbelieving Kohli walked off and Raina (one) then turned Rashid low to Root at leg slip. The Indian skipper, who had reached his 48th ODI half-century off 55 balls, looked stunned at the turn Rashid generated.

The left-hander seemed to be giving catching practice as India slumped to 158 for 5.

England restricted India to 256-8, a target which is deemed to be a doddle in this era.

Recently, Dhoni added another feather to his illustrious cap as he became fourth Indian and 12th overall in ODI history to score 10,000 runs.
