England win by 86 runs and level the series. India never threatened in the chase once Kohli departed and, from there, it was in truth a very strange innings - largely through MS Dhoni's display. But this was a very impressive showing from England when it mattered. Eoin Morgan made a smart decision at the toss, Joe Root played a superb innings and David Willey provided the late power. Then with the ball they halted a positive start to the chase before the spinners, Rashid and Moeen, took charge with impressive spells. It all means we have a decider at Headingley on Tuesday. We'll bring you the presentation shortly...

Virat Kohli "We started pretty well with the bat, it was a good wicket, it got slower but when we lost three wickets in three overs that hurt us. I thought that's where we fell behind. Credit to the bowlers, they stuck to their guns. We always want to test the character of the new guys, we expect these guys to do the job. It's a great thing to test our new guys and it's important how they bounce back. Today was a day when we couldn't get going. Moeen and Rashid are both quality bowlers in this format and sensed we couldn't take risks. They created pressure in the middle overs. If it was one down we could have attacked a bit more. This thing comes up again and again, it's unfortunate when people jump to conclusions. We all have bad days, today was a bad day for everyone. The idea was to take the innings deep and he's got the experience. Some days it just doesn't come off.

Eoin Morgan "Thought we bounced back really well. We learned from Trent Bridge on a more difficult surface here. It was an all-round bowling performance. [The toss] worked out, we discussed it this morning. It was a matter of trusting advice and my gut. [Joe Root] His play against spin sets up the backbone of our innings. He plays a crucial part. [David Willey] His batting has progressed this summer and it had an effect on his bowling which I thought was outstanding."

Man of the Match is Joe Root "Same for anyone when they are struggling slightly, have felt good in practice and was about trusting it and cashing in when you have the opportunity. Did that today. The way we've been playing this summer has been excellent and now nice to contribute to that. If we are playing well and others making big scores that's a great position. Thought the way we went about this today was outstanding, ruthless. [Kuldeep] You've seen in the T20 we learnt from our mistakes and we did that today. We took him for a little more. We look to learn and adapt, not just let him bowl at us."

We'll wrap things up there for today. Do join us for the decider at Headingley next week but for now, from Gnasher and Sreshth, it's goodbye and thanks for joining us. Meanwhile, why not hop over and following the action from Jamaica.

Gnvrvikram: "Loosing by 100 or by 20 doesn't matter when you lose. What matters is the effort you put even though you might think you lose. MSD has no clue of it today."
