England hold nerve to beat India in final ODI

England exorcised their Kolkata demons by securing a nerve-shredding last-ball victory in the third one-day international against India, finally ending a winless winter in the country.

England had never won an ODI at Eden Gardens before and nine months ago saw the World Twenty20 slip from their grasp at the ground when West Indian Carlos Brathwaite clubbed Ben Stokes for four successive sixes in the final over.

Stokes stood tall in this five-run win, scoring an unbeaten 57 in England's 321 for eight then taking three for 63, including two fine overs at the death.

But the last visit was left to Chris Woakes this time and he successfully defended 16, closing the game out with three dots and a wicket.
