MS Dhoni's acrobatics to run-out James Vince sets Twiiter on fire

But it was Adil Rashid's 3-fer that set it up.

Thakur made a valuable 22 not out off 13 balls and together with Bhuvneshwar Kumar (21) - another of the three changes to India´s side at Lord´s - added 35 before his fellow paceman holed out off Willey´s final ball of the innings.

WICKET! David Willey removes MS Dhoni for 42 runs as Jos Buttler takes a catch to complete the dismissal.

He is only the second wicketkeeper-batsman to touch the 10000-run mark in ODI cricket.

However, what has been the most satisfying as far as Adil Rashid has been concerned is a simple fact that he has gotten the better of Virat Kohli not once but twice. "England were clinical with the bat, ball and in the field throughout".

England then missed a chance to dismiss Kohli when the India captain, on 23, edged a drive against off-spinner Moeen Ali only for wicket-keeper Jos Buttler to drop a hard catch.

WICKET! Shikhar Dhawan narrowly misses out on safety as he is run-out by Ben Stokes for 44 runs. Can the Men in Blue maintain this run?

But, after left-arm quick Willey had kept things tight early on, it was leg-spinner Rashid who did significant damage by taking two wickets in an over.

And Rashid could easily argue that it has been his ability to focus exclusively on the limited-overs game that has helped him become the outstanding bowler in an England side that has won seven of nine 50-over matches this summer.

As a result, Rahul had to make way for Dinesh Karthik in the series-decider.

But the introduction of fast bowler Liam Plunkett, one of five Yorkshire players in England´s XI, helped India break the shackles.

After claiming a comprehensive win in the first one-day, India lost the second one by 86 runs.

Unfortunately, Kohli and Co ended up losing the Leeds ODI and so the series as well 1-2.

It should be remembered that Rashid was never quite the same bowler in Test cricket, even though he took 23 wickets in what became his final Test series in India 18 months ago.

He has since pleaded not guilty to the charge, with his trial set to start on 6 August - the day after the scheduled 1-5 August first Test at Birmingham's Edgbaston ground is due to end.

"It feels fantastic", Root told Sky Sports. The live streaming of the match will be available on SonyLiv.com or the SonyLiv app.
