After winning nine successive ODI series, India lost one for the first time in 2 1/2 years.

Roy sustained a laceration to the little finger of his right hand while fielding during England's 86-run victory over India at Lord's on Saturday and a team spokesman said Monday: "He remains a doubt for tomorrow (Tuesday) and will have a fitness test in the morning at the ground to ascertain whether he'll be fit to play".

With this win, England exacted revenge for their 1-2 loss against India in the twenty20 series.

And with England sources yesterday suggesting the opener was "70-30" not to play in the final match of three, Vince is in line to be drafted in as his replacement for his first ODI since 2016 in Bangladesh. Having set a target of 323 for India, thanks to a century by Joe Root, MS Dhoni was heavily criticized for his 59-ball 37 which consisted of just two fours and no sixes.

Perhaps the tension was only really evident in the Indian side as, for the second match in succession, England's wrist-spinner, Adil Rashid, proved to be the most effective of the three on view - that must be some kind of record against India. I think the tone was set by the bowlers early on, David Willey and Mark Wood were on the money.

"To come into a big series like this and perform how we have as a side is great".

Tailender Shardul Thakur (22) then blasted a 13-ball 22 with the help of two sixes to take India across the 250-mark. The introduction of Liam Plunkett hastened the run rate with his first two overs yielding 21 runs, mostly to silky cover drives by Shikhar Dhawan, but a moment of brilliance from Ben Stokes ended a unsafe partnership alongside India's captain. He deceived Rohit Sharma on the off-stump throughout the over.

WICKET! Adil Rashid has a "you miss I hit" moment as Dinesh Karthik is clean bowled for 21 runs.

A disbelieving Kohli walked off and Suresh Raina (one) then turned Rashid low to Rashid´s Yorkshire team-mate Joe Root at leg slip. Root, who scored his second century of the series, stitched a 186-run stand along with captain Eoin Morgan as the two kept the Indian bowlers at bay.
