This is brilliant awareness from Rohit Sharma. He dives to his right to stop the ball and sees Roy and Bairstow in a mix-up. Rohit picks up the ball and throws it towards Rishabh Pant, who completes the formality as Roy is miles away from the crease.
Earlier, Virat Kohli had no luck with the toss again as England's stand-in skipper Jos Buttler won the toss and elected to bowl first. Now, Virat has lost 9 out of 11 tosses on in the ongoing series.
The visitors made three changes, two of them were forced as Eoin Morgan and Sam Billings were injured. Dawid Malan, Livingstone (debut) and Reece Topley replaced Morgan, Billings and Wood. On the other hand, India just had to make one forced change with Rishabh Pant coming in for injured Shreyas Iyer.
Sam Curran opened the bowling with Reece Topley and the duo started of well and made most of the swing on offer, especially the latter, who's tall, was swinging the ball viciously and extracted a lot of bounce.
Reece Topley drew first blood, dismissing Shikhar Dhawan early on. After beating Dhawan's outside edge many times, Topley managed to lure Dhawan into poking one to the keeper.
In walked KL Rahul and started the rebuilding process with Virat Kohli swiftly. The duo brought up India's fifty in the 13th over.
The Indian skipper notched up his 62nd ODI half-century before Adil Rashid dismissed him yet again in cricket. Kohli's wait for 71st ODI century continued as he was left stranded on 66.
KL Rahul silenced his critics and brought up his 9th ODI hundred in the 44th over. He, along with Rishabh Pant began the onslaught. However, he got out while playing a good shot.
Hardik walked in next and with Pant, he ensured India go past 300. Owing to the blitzkrieg, India put 336 runs on the board.
Chasing 337, England got off to a flying start as both the openers looked in their zone and were playing really well. The duo brought up England's 100 in the 16th over.
