Adil Rashid’s 3/49, Eoin Morgan’s 88 and Joe Root’s 100 ended India’s winning streak in ODI bilaterals. England chased down a target of 257 with eight wickets and a whopping 33 balls remaining. India’s top order gave away early and Virat Kohli and Dinesh Karthik provided some resistance. But after their dismissals, India went on a downward spiral and managed to cross the 250-run mark only because of some rearguard action by Shardul Thakur. England got off to a flying start thanks to Jonny Bairstow. Root and Morgan’s unbeaten 186-run stand pretty much killed the match long before the former hit the winning runs.
India vs England 3rd ODI Live: India's fragile middle order was brutally exposed in the second ODI of the three-match series at Lord's with England winning by 86 runs. The win confirmed England would remain the number one ranked ODI side in the world irrespective of the outcome in Leeds. India's last bilateral series defeat came to Australia (1-4) in January 2016 and have since beaten Zimbabwe, New Zealand (twice), England, West Indies, Sri Lanka (twice), Australia and South Africa, both home and away. A lot of focus would be on MS Dhoni after he was booed and members of the team and coaching staff (Sanjay Bangar) defended him.
