One Day Internationals

Ben Stokes buries ghosts of Christmas Past

England's Man of the Match Ben Stokes said on Sunday that it is nice to comeback to the same venue where they lost the World T20 final last year and get a win in similar circumstances.

England last April lost by four wickets with two balls remaining to the West Indies at the Eden Gardens, the same venue where they beat India on Sunday by five runs to script their first win of the series.


Virat Kohli: "Lot of positives for us as a team"

The poor form of Indian openers in the ODI series against England is not a concern for captain Virat Kohli, who on Sunday said they need to be given some time.

India lost to England by five runs to end the three-match series 2-1. The openers, Shikhar Dhawan, K.L. Rahul and Ajinkya Rahane scored a total of 37 runs with Rahane playing just Sunday's game and scoring just one.


Kedar's heroics in vain as England sneak 5 run win

Kedar Jadhav and Hardik Pandya's heroic batting efforts went in vain as England produced a disciplined performance riding on an all-round show by Ben Stokes to defeat India by five runs in a nerve-wracking third One Day International at the Eden Gardens on Sunday.

However, with India having already taken an unassailable 2-0 lead after the first two games, it was only a consolation win for the visitors before a full house at the iconic Eden Gardens, where the track's bounce and movement afforded good assistance to the English seamers.


Chris Woakes: "Good to close out with a win"

England pacer Chris Woakes expressed happiness to play a part in England's first victory of the India tour, edging past the hosts by five runs in the third and final One-Day International (ODI) on Sunday.

Woakes bowled the final over of the innings, with India needing 16 runs with two wickets in hand at the Eden Gardens. He was blasted for a six and a four in the first two balls of the over. But under tremendous pressure, he kept his composure to restrict India to 316/9, chasing 321/8, to win by a narrow margin.


Bhuvneshwar Kumar desperate to get a run of games for India

Indian pacer Bhuvneshwar Kumar on Saturday said death bowling has become difficult nowadays with 350 being a par score but added that the experience he gained during the Indian Premier League (IPL) has helped him a lot.

Bhuvneshwar, who returned to the Indian ODI team in place of Umesh Yadav in the second match in Cuttack, bowled at the death to help his side quell the late surge from England captain Eoin Morgan and Moeen Ali, who stitched together a 93-run stand for the sixth wicket.
