India 269/2 (Rohit 137*, Kohli 75) beat England 268 (Buttler 53, Stokes 50, Kuldeep 6 for 25) by 8 wickets
This is fast turning into the summer of Kuldeep Yadav. As in his first T20I in the country, Kuldeep flummoxed the vaunted England batting in his first ODI in England, registering the fourth-best figures for India in ODIs - 6 for 25 - to keep the hosts down to 268 at a venue where the last two completed ODIs featured scores of 481 and 444. England's bowling, plain and lacking in guile, failed to make India sweat in pursuit of a target at least 40 short of what is required to stretch them on such flat tracks.
Rohit Sharma scored his 18th ODI century, and for a change Virat Kohli managed only 75, but the brightest shone Kuldeep. He repeated the dose of the T20I - removing two of England's Test mainstays, Joe Root and Jonny Bairstow, in the same over; Root with a traditional legbreak and Bairstow with the wrong'un. This was high-quality spin bowling, but the slide for England began in a moment of what now looks as rash bravado from Jason Roy.
