India made a strong start in the ODIs outplaying England both with bat and ball just like how they started the T20I series as they cruised to an 8-wicket win in the Nottingham ODI. Kuldeep Yadav brought India back into the game just when England were flying towards yet another record total in Trent Bridge. The wrist spinner took six for 25 runs in his 10 overs without conceding a boundary. India chased down the 269-run target in only 40.1 overs as Rohit Sharma scored an unbeaten 137.
