Having won the toss, India captain Virat Kohli asked England to bat first on a pitch helpful to seamers. England, to their credit, played well and put on a challenging total of 321 runs on the board. For visitors, it was all about team effort as Jason Roy and Jonny Bairstow, who replaced Joe Root, chipped in with half-centuries.
Ben Stokes then provided a late impetus to England’s innings, smashing 57 off 39 while Chris Woakes played a cameo of 34 runs in double quick time.
In reply, India fell five runs short as they managed to score 316 runs in their allotted 50 overs. For hosts, Kedar Jadhav was the star as he top scored with 90 crucial runs, while Kohli and Hardik Pandya scored half-centuries.
Here are player ratings of the Indian team:
Ajinkya Rahane (1):
The comeback man Ajinkya Rahane, who replaced Shikhar Dhawan, failed as he scored just one. Rahane faced just six deliveries and was castled by David Willey, as he tried to drive an in-swinging delivery which saw his off-stump being disturbed in the second over of the chase.
