Virat Kohli Posted A Very Special Message For The Indian Cricket Fans

With this win, England exacted revenge for their 1-2 loss against India in the twenty20 series.

With this win, England won the ODI series 2-1.

England's Joe Root and skipper Eoin Morgan celebrate after winning the deciding ODI in Headingley on Tuesday.

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. 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.

It was the first time in 203 ODI innings that Kohli had been dismissed by a leg-spinner, who made it two wickets in six balls as Suresh Raina (1) was soon caught at leg slip.

Mahendra Singh Dhoni was given out in the next over but reprieved on video review.

World Cup 'just the beginning' for Mbappe-led France
While Putin was handed an umbrella, Grabar-Kitarovic had to make do without, but she did not let the rain dampen her spirits. The emir says through a translator that the World Cup "will be a huge and great festival for all our country".

Kuldeep Yadav began his first tour of England picking up 5 for 24, and generally bamboozling the English batsmen, in the first Twenty20 worldwide in Manchester earlier in the month. Pacers Umesh Yadav, Hardik and debutant Sidharth Kaul were also costly.

Yorkshire´s Jonny Bairstow was even more fluent, hitting 30 off 13 balls, including seven fours, only to chip Thakur to Raina at midwicket. Given circumstances, conditions - Kuldeep (Yadav) might bowl really well. That all vanished as rapidly as some of the Indian supporters in the last hour as Joe Root and Eoin Morgan calmly cruised to their goal in an unbroken partnership of 186.

The batting department seemed settled with opener Shikhar Dhawan coming in form. If top-order clicks middle and lower order fails.

It was Ben Stokes (50) and Jos Buttler (53), who showed some resistance against the visiting bowling attack to push their side to a fighting total. If the trio clicked in the final match then it could be a hard task for the Indian batsmen.

None of the England batsmen were able to read him and a testimony to that was his brilliant figures of 10-0-25-6, the best ever by any chinaman bowler in the history of ODIs. Bowlers are hunting in pairs. There bowling economy is not above six which is a good sign for English players especially when the opponent team is chasing the target. India's veteran tank commander rumbled into a ditch during the second ODI, a tepid 59-ball 37 so far removed from what is expected from him as a finisher that it left fans on both sides scratching their heads. The bowler needs to get his act right going into the Test series as Jasprit Bumrah is set to miss the first couple of games for sure.
