England script win in nail-biting third ODI over India

Kolkata: England registered their first victory of their Indian cricket tour, edging past the hosts by five runs in the inconsequential third and final One-Day International (ODI) at the Eden Gardens here on Sunday.Chasing 322 to win, India almost rode on Kedar Jadhav's brilliant 90 off just 75 balls along with Hardik Pandya's career-best score of 56 off 43 balls, which saw a match-winning 104-run sixth wicket stand off just 83 balls.But, with 16 runs needing in the last over, Jadhav hit a six and a four off the first two balls to give the 66,000-odd crowd some hope, but fell to Chris Woakes eventually.
