Under favourable conditions, England pacers were right on the button from the word go with Reece Topley picking two of India's top-four that fell inside 12 overs at the cost of just 31 runs in a manageable 247-run chase. The left-armer trapped Rohit Sharma LBW for a 10-ball duck while Shikhar Dhawan's struggles came to an end after a 26-ball 9 when he was strangled down the leg-side.

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.
