    In pics: India vs England, 3rd ODI in Kolkata

    • Kedar Jadhav and Hardik Pandya's heroic batting efforts went in vein as England produced a disciplined performance riding on an all-round show by Ben Stokes to defeat India by five runs in a nerve-wracking third One Day International cricket match at the Eden Gardens. However, with India having already taken an unassailable 2-0 lead after the first two games, it was only a consolation win for the visitors before a full house at the iconic Eden Gardens, where the track's bounce and movement afforded good assistance to the English seamers.

    • Eoin Morgan, who struck a valiant 102 in England's second loss on Thursday, once again looked like he would pilot the innings with some assured hitting. The left-hander shared an 84-run third-wicket partnership with Bairstow (56), who was added to the side in place of injured Alex Hales, before falling to Hardik Pandya. (BCCI Photo)
