Ben Stokes hit a brisk half-century and then picked up three crucial wickets to help England to a tense five-run win against India in the third and final one-day international at the Eden Gardens on Sunday. It was a consolation victory for England and their first on their tour of India after they lost the five-Test series 4-0 and both previous ODIs. Stokes’s last visit to Eden Gardens last April ended in a personal nightmare as Carlos Brathwaite smashed him for four consecutive sixes in the final over to win the World Twenty20 title for the West Indies. On Sunday, the seamer first dismissed India’s best batsman Virat Kohli for 55 before returning to remove Hardik Pandya for 56 and break his dangerous partnership with Kedar Jadhav. India had just taken 16 runs off Chris Woakes in the 47th over and needed 27 in 18 balls when England captain Eoin Morgan called on Stokes to bowl his final over. Stokes gave away just four runs, added the wicket of Ravichandran Ashwin to his tally and finish with 3-63. (Video courtesy: SNTV)
