The Men in Blue continued humiliating the Englishmen in the One Day Internationals while putting them in the corner. The hosts were bowled out for 206 runs in the fourth game whereas the tourists attained the target after losing one mere wicket and 19.3 overs to spare. India leads the five match series at 3-0 and the final ODI may turn out to be another defeat for the home side.

Players to watch

Moeen Ali, Joe Root and Eoin Morgan were the only batsmen who fought well for a few runs in the previous encounter while Alastair Cook and Alex Hales are still out of form. Chris Woakes is their highest wicket taker with five from three matches and the other bowlers are being treated harshly by the rival batsmen.

Ajinkya Rahane powered his maiden ODI ton and Shikhar Dhawan remained unbeaten for a crispy knock of 97 whereas Suresh Raina and MS Dhoni are the finest middle order batsmen. Mohammed Shami, Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Ravindra Jadeja were instrumental bowlers for their victory.
