One Day Internationals

3rd ODI in Kolkata – India v England


Woakes holds his nerve to bowl England to victory

In a thrilling final one day international in the series Chris Woakes came back from a poor start to the key final over to help England avoid a series whitewash and claim their first win over India at any level on their current tour. England batted first with Jason Roy top scoring with 65 supported by Ben Stokes who was unbeaten on 57 as England posted 331. Nobody went on to get a big score once again and on a good pitch maybe they would end up just short again as a result? It looked that way going into the final over as Kedar Jadhav hit 10 off the first two balls being bowled by Woakes to move his own score to 90. It left India needing just 6 off the final four balls. Woakes held steady however to bowl two dot balls and then got the crucial wicket as Jadhav was caught by Sam Billings. India could only score one off the final ball as Woakes had turned a certain defeat into victory for England in a huge final test of character that he came through with flying colours.
