India hammer England with nine wickets (and 117 balls) to spare thanks to Ajinkya Rahanes brilliant 106
Right, thats it from me. Thanks for your company. Stick around on site for all the reports and reaction. Cheerio!
And heres MS Dhoni: Our performances have been getting better this was a perfect game again. It was a good toss to win the wicket got better as the game progressed.
A post-match chat
Heres Alastair Cook talking to Skys Nick Knight: Weve played some bad cricket. I dont quite now why weve got to find the reason. The most frustrating thing is when you dont play to your potential there are no excuses.
The tourists are 3-0 up with one to play. And after todays battering youd be astonished if it was anything other than 4-0 after the game at Headingley, weather permitting of course.
With five required, Indias fans chant We want six! We want six! Dhawan looks to oblige but can only belt a four over extra cover. They continue to chant it, and from the next ball he delivers, hammering a Gurney full toss straight down the ground for six. Dhawan finishes 97 not out off 81 balls.
So India win by nine wickets and with 117 balls remaining. This has been a pretty humiliating day for England.
30th over: India 200-1 (Kohli 1, Dhawan 85) England have avoided a first ever 10-wicket ODI defeat on home soil. Which, you know, is nice. Woakes comes in once more and Dhawan flails him over wide mid on for four, then goes squarer for the same result. Then SIX! Dhawan is having a ball out there and dumps the hapless Woakes over the rope. A single off the last makes it 17 off the over and takes India to 200. Only seven more needed.
29th over: India 183-1 (Kohli 0, Dhawan 69) Celebrations after that wicket were, shall we say, a touch muted. Rahane walks off to a thoroughly deserved standing ovation.
India, looking to finish this quickly, take the batting powerplay. And Rahane clubs the first ball of it, delivered by Gurney, through the covers for four. But then Gurney has his man! Rahane looks to drive a thigh-high full toss over the top of cover, but can only drive straight into the hands of leaping Alastair Cook. The fightback starts here!
