The final ODI of the three-match series between England and India is currently been played at Old Trafford in Manchester. After Rohit Sharma won the toss and opted to field, Jason Roy got the hosts off to a flying start. He smashed three fours in the opening over, bowled by Mohammed Shami, which increased the worry of the Indian fans as the hosts looked good for a huge total.

However, the hope did not last long enough. Mohammed Siraj, who came in as a replacement for injured Jasprit Bumrah, bowled an excellent second over and brought India back into the contest. The third ball that angled in was pitched at a good length.

Jonny Bairstow tried to drive the ball, but only managed to find a tame leading edge before substitute fielder Shreyas Iyer caught it at mid-off. Then, England endured a huge setback in the same over when Joe Root was caught at second slip by Rohit with another angling in delivery.
