Joe Root’s Hit a 13th ODI Century : England V/s India in 2018 , 3rd ODI Match
The home side eased to their target of 257 with 33 balls and eight wickets to spare. Joe Root’s hitting the winning runs to complete a second successive century and Eoin Morgan ending on 88 not out.
That India are restricted to a modest 256-8 has down to England’s excellence with the ball and in the field.
Shikhar Dhawan scored “44 runs” before being run out by Ben Stokes, while Virat Kohli remained unbeaten on 71, unless he able to bowl with the beautiful Adil Rashid delivery.
England’s limited-overs summer is now over, the first of five Test matches against India starts on Wednesday, August 1.
England stay on course for World Cup
In less than 12 months of hosting the World Cup, England have justified their tag as the world number ones by beating the side ranked second.
If the defeat in Scotland now looks like a deviation and Australia’s 5-0 whitewash is not opposed to the quality of the opposition, then this success is effective because of the way England can adapt their game .
In the first ODI of “Trent Bridge” , England were destroyed by Kuldeep Yadav’s left hand wrist-spin, but he controlled India in the second match of Lord’s and dominated Leeds.
Actually, at “Lord’s” , there were spinners of England who had a great impact on the game in “Headingley” , while the patience of their batsmen against Kuldeep meant that he was a wicketless.
If the conditions are warm dry, then England will have to negotiate a lot of spins during the upcoming Test series, which promises to be a fantastic contest.
Here, however, his superiority has lowered India, whose noisy fans are kept silent in the evening in the sun.
Moments of magic turn it for England
It has probably a brave move to opt from Chasing on a surface by “Captain Morgan” , who threatened to deteriorate, but the challenge increased on their side.
In particular, the two fantastic pieces of cricket changed the game in favour of England.
Dhawan and Kohli had added 71 runs when Kohli turned the ball to square leg and sent Dhawan back. Stokes swooped one-handed and threw in one motion, his direct hit defeating Dhawan by millimetres.
Later, Kohli seen in a knock full of delicate deflection and useless placement. However, he has troubled by an amazing Rashid “leg break” that pitched on leg stump and hit the top of off.
He part of another trustworthy performance from Rashid, who claimed “3-49” . Off-spinner Moeen Ali offered similar control and the fast bowler Mark Wood shocked the ball around for the miserly figures of “1-30” .
Only Liam Plunkett, who went for over eight overs, bowled poorly.
MS Dhoni – were so negative in Lord’s on Saturday – Moeen Ali was given LBW, but failed in his efforts to accelerate the scoring and edged David Willey (3-40) behind.
Only the late hitting of “Shardul Thakur” , who hit two sixes in India, saw that the visitors scored “32 runs” in the last three overs.
England make light work of the chase
With the ball turning for the spinners and moving for the pace bowlers, England’s target could have been tricky.
They found themselves “74-2” after Jonny Bairstow’s boundary-laden “30 runs from 13 balls” and James Vince, opening in place of the injured Jason Roy, was run out for 27.
From there, skipper Morgan and his Test counterpart Root showed composure and ruthlessness in an unbroken partnership of “186 runs” .
Joe Root’s followed his hundred at “Lord’s” with a measured innings on his home ground. He escaped with urgency, punished short balls with pull and drove with elegance.
Left-hander Morgan also doing free scoring – with the lofting drive on the extra cover and the only six of England, smiling the ball through leg side.
India had chances. Joe Root’s would have been stumped on “69 runs” off Yuzvendra Chahal had the bowler not overstepped, while Bhuvneshwar Kumar’s simple drop at mid-on when Morgan (85) summed up the visitors’ day.
Immediately after this, with the Root (96) and one necessary for victory, he pulled a Pandya full toss into the boundary of the mid wicket and celebrated with a “mic drop” of his bat.
‘Rashid is so important to England’ – analysis
Former England captain Michael Vaughan, speaking about England’s standout players on TMS :
“Adil Rashid is such an important member of this England team.
“He constantly eliminates important batsmen at crucial times, this is where he has become so important for the team.
“Kohli was set up – he was thinking 150. And then suddenly, some magic gets rid of him.
“Also, David Willey has had a tremendous white-ball summer. He’s gone up a notch”.
“He has brought a bit more zip with the new ball, which has the ability to bowl wider Yorkers and great changes, and their fifty at Lord’s changed the game.”
‘England were more clinical’ – what the captains said
India captain Virat Kohli :
“I thought that as far as the runs were concerned, we were never on the mark. We were 25 or 30 short .
“England were batting, ball and clinical throughout the field, they were worth winning. We were not good enough .
“You need to be the best against England. Credit goes to them.
“He really troubled us through mid-overs, well both spinners bowled well in partnership.”
England captain Eoin Morgan :
“I think it was an outstanding performance. The bowlers set the tone early on. David Willey and Mark Wood hit their lines and lengths really well. From that point, there was no let up.
“We know the conditions here really well, so we managed to take advantage of that.
“The guys make my decisions look good. At Lord’s, winning the toss and batting only looks good if the guys play well.
“I thought we got better as the series went on. Trent Bridge, we were off the mark, and India punished us. From there, we’ve learnt a lot.
“The challenge from here on in is to stay on top of our game. The first game at Trent Bridge shows there are different challenges and we can still be better at dealing with them from the start – as opposed to making big mistakes and correcting them as we go along.
“The advantage of the World Cup is that it’s 10 games. I presume by the format that by the end of the group stage, the best four teams in the competition will reach the semi-finals.”
