Root and Morgan clinch decider for England in ODI series

Sam Billings drafted into England ODI squad as cover for Jason Roy

LEEDS: David Willey and Adil Rashid took three wickets apiece on their Yorkshire home ground as England held India to 256 for eight in the third and deciding one-day worldwide at Headingley on Tuesday.

Meanwhile, England won the decider by 8 wickets to seal the series 2-1. But it was Adil Rashid's 3-fer that set it up.

Root, stumped off a Yuzvendra Chahal no-ball on 69, went to his century when he pulled Pandya through midwicket for his 10th four in 120 balls as England won with 33 deliveries to spare.

"They (Kohli and Smith) seem to use that as a way to get the best out of themselves and I think that feeds off into the other players in the team as well".

Talking about the ODI series, England and India both are on the same level right now with one win in their accounts.

Root was yet again the tormentor-in-chief, scoring a second century in as many games and becoming the top run scorer in the series as a result.

Kerber, like Williams, is on the comeback trail
It will be Kerber's first Grand Slam final since she won the second of her two major titles at the 2016 US Open. With experience of three Grand Slam finals, two against Williams, she will not be cowed on Saturday.

Just about the only jarring note of Root's innings was when he dropped his bat deliberately after reaching three figures, a gesture more associated with rock stars and stand-up comedians.

And that made the comprehensive manner of their victory all the more satisfying for Morgan's men.

But by then England were 74 for two inside 10 overs, well above the required run-rate. Cummins said he was actually paying the Indian batsman a compliment and that his comments had been misinterpreted.In an on-stage interview at an event in June, Cummins had said, "My courageous, bold prediction; I'd say I think Virat Kohli is not going to get a hundred and we're going to knock them off over here", referring to the Indian team's tour of Australia which begins in November. "He wanted to show the ball to Arun to just have a look at it after close to 45 overs had been bowled", the Indian head coach asserted.

"They are obviously favourites because its their home conditions", India paceman Shardul Thakur said.

'He loves playing cricket and loves being out there, ' said the England captain.
