Reece Topley amended the record books with his sterling 6/24 that helped England come from behind and successfully defend 246 against India. The three-match ODI series reamins alive. Topley’s maiden ODI fifer – now the best bowling figures by an Englishman in the 50-over format – rocked the visitors in a manageable chase, eclipsing their own penetrative effort with the ball earlier in the day.
Brief scores: England 246 all out in 49 overs (Moeen Ali 47, David Willey 41; Yuzvendra Chahal 4-47, Jasprit Bumrah 2-49, Hardik Pandya 2-28) beat India 146 in 38.5 overs (Hardik Pandya 29, Ravindra Jadeja 29; Reece Topley 6-24) by 100 runs.
🗣 “It means a lot and makes it all worthwhile to be honest, it was just over the stand where I had surgery three years ago so it’s come full circle”
