India v England: Virat Kohli and Kedar Jadhav lead stunning chase

A Virat Kohli masterclass helped India complete the highest successful chase in a one-day international against England and seal a three-wicket win.

Chasing 351, India were reduced to 63-4 in Pune before Kohli, who made 122, and Kedar Jadhav (120) shared 200.

India completed the joint-fourth best run chase of all time in 48.1 overs.

Ben Stokes earlier struck a 40-ball 62 as England took 105 from their final eight overs, but they still went behind in the three-match series.

It is a demoralising result, coming after a 4-0 defeat in the Test series, and extends England’s dismal record in India to only three wins in 24 ODIs.

Though England racked up their highest score against India, they could arguably have had even more – Jason Roy and Joe Root failed to make really big scores after good starts – and were taught a lesson by chasing specialist Kohli, who somehow overshadowed Jadhav’s 65-ball century.(BBC,2017)
