Virat Kohli was dismissed at 122. The shot he played was a rare blemish on an otherwise near perfect innings. Stokes was the man who got the all important wicket. It was a slower but short ball towards off and Kohli tried to pull it. It ended up taking an outside edge and David Willey held on to it gleefully. (Source: Reuters)

Kedar Jadhav was struggling with cramps when he was in his nineties. It only got aggravated to the point that he couldn't run anymore. He tried compensating that by dealing in boundaries and sixes. It worked and he took India closer to the total before being dismissed, once again by Ben Stokes. (Source: PTI)

India went on to lose just once more wicket after that. Ravichandran Ashwin joined Hardik Pandya in the middle after ravindra jadeja walked back. The two held on for India. Needing 7 to win, Pandya hit a six in the last ball of the 48th over. Ashwin didn't waste anymore time when he came on strike and hit another six off the first ball of the 49th over and India thus completed the fourth highest run chase of all time in ODI cricket in style.
