All eyes on the decider now...

Well, like the T20Is, the ODI leg also moves to the series decider on Sunday. India 1, England 1. The winner takes it all in the final. If India can secure the win, they will complete a trifecta of wins over England on this tour. Expect Sunday to offer another cracker. Till then, take care all.

From the winning captain Jos Buttler

Delighted with the response of the guys. I thought we put in a very good bowling performance as well to restrict India to that total. Look at how well they played in the last 10 overs, so I thought the guys in the middle overs did well to restrict them. And then the guys came out and played fantastically well, the intent and partnerships from the start made it a brilliant chase. The openers have been a pillar of our strength for a long period of time. Delighted for Jonny and that partnership with Ben Stokes was brilliant to watch, as a fellow player and a fan. Some of the strokes they played and the commitment to play that way. Some people talked about our way and if we need to be smarter - of course we want to play smart cricket but it's important to commit to our style of play when the conditions suit. Moeen and Adil bowled well in tandem, great friends and they enjoy bowling together."

'They blew us away,' says Kohli on the Stokes-Bairstow partnership

Virat Kohli: "I think the most pleasing thing for us as a team is we didn't go away from our values as a team. We were bitterly disappointed after the first ODI. Great chase and happy we were able to go over the line fairly easily despite India putting up a big total. Better wicket to be honest but we don't really fear any totals to be honest. It could have been easy to rein ourselves in after the last game but from a personal and team point of view, it was important to play as we do. We speak about match ups in our changing room and my match-up was with the spinners to take the risk, just let Jonny keep going on with his business. He's in unbelievable form. The amount of runs they (Roy and Bairstow) have scored is obviously amazing, but if you look at the way they have scored it's even better .best in the world in my opinion. Always good going to the last game when the series is on the line."

Let's hear from the Man of the Moment, Ben Stokes

Great chase and happy we were able to go over the line fairly easily despite India putting up a big total. Better wicket to be honest but we don't really fear any totals to be honest.

Mar 26, 2021 9:27 PM IST

England win, series levelled at 1-1

A free hit to end the match. England chase down 337 runs with 39 balls to spare. 39! They beat India by six wickets to push the series into the decider on Sunday.

Mar 26, 2021 9:22 PM IST

Prasidh still firing them in at 140 clicks

Some spirit this from the India pacer. England need just 7 more to win but there has been no drop in pace from Prasidh Krishna, who continues to dart them in at 140 or near about.

Mar 26, 2021 9:15 PM IST

England dealing in singles

The right way to go about it. Just 16 needed with 53 balls remaining. Those three wickets may have slowed things down a bit, but England pretty much on course for 1-1.

Mar 26, 2021 9:05 PM IST

Consecutive SIXES for Livingstone

And the bowler he is targeting is none other than India's best of the night, Bhuvneshwar Kumar. The first six was smoked down the ground while the next ball was pulled for a huge hit. England move to 315/4, need another 22 off 63 balls.

Mar 26, 2021 8:54 PM IST

OUT! Incredible scenes in Pune

Hang on! Catch a breath. Now it's Buttler. Three wickets in nine balls for India. England 287/4. Drama all around. Can India have a surprise to inflict on England here? With 43 needed off 73, this is still England's game, but you've got to believe that there isn't much experience in this batting line-up.

Mar 26, 2021 8:51 PM IST

OUT! And now Bairstow departs

OUT! Two wickets in two overs for India. Krishna removes Bairstow for 124. England 287/3.

Mar 26, 2021 8:46 PM IST

WICKET! 99 for Stokes

OUT! Ben Stokes is gone for 99. Bhuvneshwar Kumar gets the wicket. Oh dear! If anyone deserved to get a century tonight, it was him. He has changed the complexion of this game completely. Goes for the pull but gloves a short ball from Bhuvneshwar to Rishabh Pant. But like we said, not before he turned the tables for England, putting them on course of a series-levelling win. England 285/2 in 35.2 overs.

Mar 26, 2021 8:42 PM IST

Outrageous! This is unbelievable

15 runs have come off the last over, which believe it or not, is India's best in the last three. My goodness! This is definite carnage by two of England's finest limited-over batsmen. England need just 52 off 89 balls.

Mar 26, 2021 8:36 PM IST

This is ridiculous hitting!

28 runs off the over. Three sixes and a four in that over which takes Ben Stokes into the 90s. He is 95 off just 50 balls. Incredible stuff by these two. They look set to chase it down inside 40 overs for all we know. England 266/1 after 34 overs, need another 71 off 95 balls.

Mar 26, 2021 8:32 PM IST

SIX: 8th of the innings for Stokes

Virat Kohli turns back to Ben Stokes and the result is a SIX, WIDE and a FOUR off the first two balls of the over. This is tremendous hitting. The Indians appear shell-shocked. Krunal is trying everything, the quicker ones, the short quicker ones, the fuller ball bowled at 110 kmph. But nothing seems to be working for them.

Mar 26, 2021 8:29 PM IST

Three SIXES in a row

An over to forget for Kuldeep as Stokes carts him for three straight sixes. The shoulders have dropped and there are plenty of meetings taking place between members of the Indian team and their captain. For the first time, England's asking rate has come down under six an over, chasing 337. Imagine the carnage that has taken place in the last 10-12 overs. England 238/1 after 33 overs.

Mar 26, 2021 8:23 PM IST

Fifty for Stokes

Ben Stokes creams runs a single to get to fifty, off 40 balls. Didn't realise for a moment there. Finally raises his bat and his teammates in the dugout acknowledge. Bairstow cracks a four in the over off Shardul to take the total to 218/1 in 32 overs.

Mar 26, 2021 8:15 PM IST

Serious hitting from England

Expensive over for India. 17 runs off it. Stokes joins Bairstow in clubbing a six and then a four to get England to 211/1 in 31 overs. Kuldeep has given away 57 runs in eight overs and this is some heavy striking by England. It's raining fours and sixes and the match is quickly slipping out of India's grasp.

Mar 26, 2021 8:11 PM IST

Century for Jonny Bairstow

Century for Jonny Bairstow, off 95 balls as England march on in chase. Gets there with a six, which also brings up the 200 for England. A big grunt from Kuldeep but the ball connects the middle of the bat.

Mar 26, 2021 8:07 PM IST

Ind vs Eng, Live: First FOUR for Stokes

He's hit three sixes but here Stokes scores his first four of the innings. Comes down the wicket and slashes Thakur for a four over and wide of the keeper. Once again, a boundary off the first ball of the over for England.

Mar 26, 2021 8:03 PM IST

Bairstow enters the 90s

After three dot balls, Bairstow has clubbed Kuldeep for his fifth six of the innings. A mighty hit, '23 rows back' as Graeme Swann says on commentary. For the second time in two matches, Bairstow is in the 90s. He's on 94, his score in the previous ODI. England 188/1, need 149 runs from 21 overs.

Mar 26, 2021 7:58 PM IST

FOUR! Another early boundary in the over for England

Bairstow thumps Bhuvneshwar Kumar down the ground for a four first ball off the over, but the India quick returns strong with four dot balls and a single to finish. Five from it. England 180/1 after 28 overs.

Mar 26, 2021 7:55 PM IST

Kuldeep to Bairstow: FOUR

Frustrating stuff this from Kuldeep. Short ball outside leg and that is break and butter for even a No. 8 batsman, let alone a set Bairstow. England get that early boundary once again but Kuldeep has to do a lot better than that. The asking rate has climbed to over 7 and over, but the scoring rate isn't too behind. England 175/1 after 27.

Mar 26, 2021 7:53 PM IST

How good was that over from Bhuvneshwar?

Comes back for his second spell and starts off brilliantly. Just three runs off the over, a single and a couple of runs. The game has reached a stage where one good over from India is sure to out pressure on England. But where will the remaining tidy overs come from?

Mar 26, 2021 7:51 PM IST

Stokes survives a close run-out call

A brilliant direct hit by Kuldeep Yadav from the deep, almost sees the back of Ben Stokes. As he casually returned for the second run, not showing much belief in Kuldeep's arm, Stokes has to really push it towards the end. The replay showed it was closer than usual, with some part of Stokes' bat barely crossed the crease. It was a matter of one frame. Stokes survives. England 170/1 after 26 overs.

Mar 26, 2021 7:43 PM IST

Brilliant comeback from Thakur

Just three runs in the over and the pressure of a good over is out there for everyone to see as Stokes tries to attempt a ramp shot but misses. England 167/1 after 25 overs. Indian fans must be wondering where Hardik Pandya is. Well, he was just seen in an animated chat with captain Virat Kohli, who instead brings Bhuvneshwar Kumar in the attack, perhaps keeping Hardik for a later stage.

Mar 26, 2021 7:33 PM IST

150 up for England

As Bairstow goes back to his boundary his spree. He went a bit quiet after Jason Roy's wicket but is back to his belligerent best smashing two fours off three balls off Krishna. Follows it with a couple down to long-on. England 154/1 in 23 overs.

Mar 26, 2021 7:30 PM IST

Second SIX for Stokes

Krunal errs slightly in length and bowls on the shorter side. Stokes, who has been eyeing that leg-side boundary, get the opportunity and thumps it for a maximum. England 142/1 after 22 overs.

Mar 26, 2021 7:29 PM IST

Krishna returns with a tidy over

His third and fourth overs were expensive, but Prasidh Krishna has started his fresh spell with a two-run over. A run out appeal from India against Bairstow after Virat Kohli collected the ball and took off the stumps, but the replay showed that Jonny was home comfortably. England 130/1 after 21 overs.

Mar 26, 2021 7:21 PM IST

Krunal to Stokes: SIX

And he doesn't waste much time. Brings out the big, hard swing and clears the boundary comfortably for his first six. India operating with spin from both ends with Krunal and Kuldeep bowling in tandem. But India would want to change it and not give either Stokes or Bairstow to get used to the pace. 20 overs bowled, England 128/1.

Mar 26, 2021 7:17 PM IST

Surprise, Surprise! Ben Stokes at No. 3 for England

There has been so much spoken about how Ben Stokes is 'wasted' and stuff like that batting down the order. Well, here he is for England, batting at No. 3, with the series on the line. England will hope they move works out well. He looked good to finish the game in the fifth T20I. Can he work something up tonight?

Mar 26, 2021 7:10 PM IST

OUT! Jason Roy run out

A terrible mix up between the two batsmen and Roy will have to head back. Yes, No, Yes, and a terrific piece of fielding by Rohit Sharma gives India a much-needed breakthrough. England 110/1 in 16.3 overs.

Mar 26, 2021 7:07 PM IST

Fifty for Bairstow

He gets there off 45 balls with his fourth six of the innings. First ball of a fresh over from Kuldeep and Bairstow clubs it into the fifth or sixth row. England 110/0 in 16.2 overs.

Mar 26, 2021 6:59 PM IST

Back-to-back sixes for Bairstow

12 runs off the first two balls off Thakur's fourth over. The first ball was smoked down the ground for six and the next was flicked with tremendous timing. England 99/0 after 15.2 overs, while at the same stage, India were 67/2.

Mar 26, 2021 6:57 PM IST

Fifty for Roy

Half-century for Jason Roy off 48 balls, gets there with a SIX. No longer a victim of the 40s. The moment he connected Kuldeep, there were cries of "catch it", but there was just enough on the ball to send it over Krunal at long-on.

England 84/0 in 14.2 overs.

Mar 26, 2021 6:52 PM IST

Thakur to Bairstow: SIX

Clubbed, right out of the middle of the bat. For a moment, it seemed as if Krunal Pandya at long on had a chance but it was timed brilliantly. Almost chipped for a six. First six for England. It was on the cards after those three tight overs by India. England 77/0, 14 overs gone.

Mar 26, 2021 6:49 PM IST

Kuldeep bowls an eventful over

Four runs off the over. Kuldeep bowls a wide, which he believes caught a bit of Jonny Bairstow's gloves as he tried to sweep. There was also a wrong one and a reverse sweep that went straight to the fielder. Three very good overs for India here. England 70/0 after 13 overs.

Mar 26, 2021 6:46 PM IST

Thakur pulls his socks

Three runs off Thakur's second over, which includes a wide. The last two overs have been good for India, combining to give away just five runs. Bairstow and Roy won't mind it though, for there is a lot of time remaining in the game. England are behind the asking rate but a lot can change.

Mar 26, 2021 6:37 PM IST

In comes Kuldeep

Gets off to a good start to give just two runs in the over. England 61/0 after 11 overs. He was expensive in the previous game, going wicketless for 68 in nine overs. But he has been backed for another game and the pressure promises to be immense. He's got limited opportunities in the past. This surface may not offer him much turn but there will be some bounce on offer for Kuldeep to make something of this.

Mar 26, 2021 6:35 PM IST

A FOUR to finish the Powerplay

End of the first Powerplay and England would be happy with their progress to reach 59/0 in the first 10 overs. Bairstow capped off the previous over with a beautiful punch off the backfoot between cover and point for a four.

Mar 26, 2021 6:34 PM IST

Ind vs Eng, Live Score, 2nd ODI: Thakur to Bairstow - FOUR

India bowlers repeating their mistakes. Like Krishna, Thakur drops the ball short and Bairstow takes full toll. A pull shot for another boundary. Every time India have landed the ball in the good length area, they have managed to keep England's openers quiet.

Mar 26, 2021 6:30 PM IST

A boundary and a single off the over

Bairstow flicks for four. Five runs off the over as England reach 51/0 after nine overs. Once again, Roy and Bairstow have seen England off to a watchful start. A friendly chat between Bairstow and Bhuvneshwar as the batsman walks to the non-striker's end. There will be more of it with the IPL approaching.

Mar 26, 2021 6:27 PM IST

Appeal from India

But no success as umpire Nitin Menon turns it down. Bhuvneshwar and Kohli have a chat but decide against the review. Bairstow went down the wicket and the ball rapped him on the back bat. The DRS shows the ball would have clipped the top of middle but since the umpire's call was not out, India would be happy to not take the review after all.

Mar 26, 2021 6:24 PM IST

Decent comeback from Krishna

After being taken for 13 off his last over, Krishna conceded just two singles off the first five balls, before erring in the final ball of the over. Short and outside off, and Roy goes after it with an aerial cut stroke for a four. Roy has raced to 39 off 37, Bairstow 6 off 11. England 46/0 after 8 overs.

Mar 26, 2021 6:18 PM IST

Runs starting to flow now

After three quiet overs, England are getting a move on... and once again, it's Jason Roy providing the early impetus for England. Strikes back-to-back boundaries off Bhuvneshwar - a ramp shot and a backfoot punch down the ground for four. Bairstow has faced just eight balls out of the first 7 overs. England 40/0 after 7 overs.

Mar 26, 2021 6:14 PM IST

Three FOURS in the over

And add a third boundary to that over. Again Krishna is guilty of pitching the ball short, and Roy has ample time to guide the ball towards fine leg for a third four in four balls. There could have been a fourth four in the over but Kohli pulls out a good save at cover to keep it to 13 off the over. England 30/0 after 6 overs.

Mar 26, 2021 6:11 PM IST

Roy pulls for FOUR, twice

After a straight drive in the previous over, Roy brings out the front-foot pull shot to get himself his second boundary. Slightly short from Krishna, but good enough for Roy. Plays an identical shot next ball and gets the same result. Was that the calm before the storm?

Mar 26, 2021 6:07 PM IST

FOUR for Bairstow

Gets off the mark in some style. Short ball from Bhuvneshwar but Bairstow does well to get on top of the bounce and pulls it for a four. Long chase for Shardul Thakur towards the mid-wicket boundary but the ball trumps him. England 17/0 after 5.

Mar 26, 2021 6:03 PM IST

Krishna to Roy: FOUR

The release shot from Roy. There have hardly been any scoring opportunities and the pressure was visible on England's openers. Krishna bowls a half-volley and Roy drills a drive down the ground for a four. Much-needed for England. Five off the over, England 10 without loss after 4 overs

Mar 26, 2021 6:02 PM IST


Leading edge but doesn't carry. That ball from Krishan stopped on Roy, hit the top half of the bat and lobs in the air, falling towards cover, where Virat Kohli attempts to take the catch but the ball lands just short.

Mar 26, 2021 6:01 PM IST

Ind vs Eng, Live Score: Bhuvneshwar testing Roy

Not so much with his trademark banana swing, but it's that slight movement on balls bowled outside off, to which Roy is being a bit tentative. Bhuvneshwar beats Roy twice in three balls as the batsman scampers to the non-striker's end for a single. Another one-run over. England 5/0 after 3.
