Time for the presentation:
James Taylor is the Man of the Match: Delighted with the win and to make the finals, but credit to Buttler as well. I was trying to concentrate when wickets fell, was struggling a bit and Buttler played an outstanding innings. I've been waiting to get some opportunities and trying to get my side over the line and managed to do that today. I knew if I was there till the end we were going to be around thereabouts. Decent cricket wicket to be fair and the bounce was interesting.
Dhoni: When we started batting I thought we did decent with the new ball and a bit more runs initially would have helped. Good bowling and poor selection of shots led to the low score and 40-50 more runs would have helped. I don't think the wicket played a factor but the English bowlers extract more from these conditions. We have to look at our attack keeping in mind the balance of the side. Two spinners suit us because Ashwin and Jadeja, and Ashwin and Axar can bat a bit while three seamers and a spinner weakens our batting, it's a Catch-22 situation. Playing an extra seamer weakens the batting and even leads to a slow over rate. We will be ready for the Pakistan match and the next few days will be helpful to switch off for some time and freshen up. Test series trains you a lot and we need to get our confidence back in the ODIs.
Eoin Morgan: We made it difficult for ourselves and both sides battled with the conditions. If guys got themselves then there was going to be an opportunity. The guys showed that they are ruthless once they set in, especially Buttler and Taylor. Buttler is excellent and there's more to come. We have gone from strength to strength and our bowling has done well, building blocks on our way to the World Cup.
That's all we have from this match, tune in again on Sunday for the final between Australia and England, and the World Cup shall follow soon after. Until then, goodbye and good luck!
6.55pm England win it by three wickets after being in trouble early on and make it to the series final. Their openers made low scores, middle order hardly contributed anything but James Taylor fought it out with a gritty fifty, accompanied by Jos Buttler. Both got out in the end, but had steered their team to a comfortable position by then. India fought for some time considering they were defending 200, but it wasn't enough on this pitch and with this attack.
India finish the tour winless and will ready themselves for the World Cup now. A lot of questions to answer - opening combination, middle-order worries, new-ball attack, the list may not end. This was their last ODI before the major event and will have to look for answers somehow in the next two weeks.
Pavan: "Still Binny not in a picture. What are you doing Captain?"
JSK: "what if this is a tie ? Who advances ?" England will go through
Stuart Broad the new man, eight runs to go
