Joe Root and Eoin Morgan Star As England Beat India
The 3rd and final ODI of India vs England Tour 2018 was on 17th July 2018 at Headingley, Leads. England beat India by 8 wickets.
Joe Root made 100 not out and Eoin Morgan made 88 not out which is an unbeaten 186 – run partnership between them that bought England to an eight-wicket victory over India in final and third ODI on Tuesday at Headingley, Leads. The win ended India’s nine consecutive bilateral ODI series-winning – run as England clinched the three match series 2 – 1 despite losing the opening ODI.
After winning the toss, Morgan elected to field as the English bowlers produced a disciplined bowling attack to restrict the hosts to a modest 256/8 in 50 overs. In reply, England overhauled the target in just 44.3 overs. England got to flying start, courtesy Johnny Bairstow’s 30 off 13 balls.
However, his stay in the middle was cut short by Shardul Thakur and India got a much-needed breakthrough.
