IND vs ENG Live Score and Commentary

India emerged winners in a high scoring game at Cuttack tonight. It was always going to be a run fest and the proceedings lived up to the pre-match expectations. 

Despite the last over finish, the match will always be remembered for the mammoth MS Dhoni-Yuvraj Singh partnership. The southpaw brought up his highest ODI score and MS Dhoni showed everybody that he's got plenty more to offer as a batsman.

As the series moves to Kolkata, England will continue searching for answers. Having wrapped up the series, India could look to experiment with their opening combinations. 

The final ODI will be played at the famed Eden Gardens on the 22nd.

Until then, it's good night from all of us here.
Yuvraj Singh - "I've been hitting the ball well throughout the domestic season. Definately, the lady luck is there. The blessing of my mother and my guruji is there. That's why I am still playing. This is probably the best. Getting 150 was a target in my career. I wish I can get more. I wanted to prove a point to myself. There was no belief from the outside (but) I knew I would score big." 
Yuvraj Singh is the man of the match.
Virat Kohli - "25-3 today again...two of the greats stepping up today. I think about 340 would have been chasable easily. I think 380 was a bit too far fetched. I think we've only played up to 75% of our potential. If we play to a 100%, we will only score more."
Eoin Morgan - "We weren't at our best with the ball today. The last 10 over at a bit easier to bowl but the run up to it is not. The margin for error is small. We showed a lot of fight as a side. We believed that we can chase that score. There's a tremendous amount of belief. Today we just didn't have the skill."
For India, Ravindra Jadeja bowled an economical spell while conceding just 45 runs from his allocated 10 overs. He also picked up the crucial wicket of Jason Roy. R Ashwin went for 65 runs but made vital breakthroughs by picking up 3 wickets. Meanwhile, Jasprit Bumrah and Hardik Pandya were expensive with the ball.
England gave it all in the run-chase. Jason Roy looked dangerous up the order. Joe Root and Moeen Ali made vital contributions as well. But it was always going to be Eoin Morgan that India needed to worry about. As long as he was out there, England still had a chance. His 81 ball 102 was studded with 6 boundaries and 5 sixes.
Ravichandran Ashwin - "It was important to get feedback from Mahi from behind the stumps due to the right and left time combinations. The game has changed quite a bit. It's important to keep going for wickets. It was important that we got those wickets in the middle. Jaddu is very economical in terms of line and length. It gives me the allowance to go for wickets."
India takes an unassailable 2-0 lead in the three-match series. India rejoice. The England dressing room is gutted.
Bhuvaneshwar Kumar holds his nerve and bowls it nice and full to close out the match.
It's all over. India win by 15 runs!
