With a tense five-run win against India in the third and final one-day international at the Eden Gardens on Sunday, England earned a consolation victory -- their first on their tour of India after they lost the five-test series 4-0 and both previous ODIs.
England seemed set for a comprehensive win despite an injury to seamer David Willey as India lost their top five batsmen for 173 but Kedar Jadhav (90) and Hardik Pandya brought the hosts back in the match with a sixth-wicket stand of 104.
