VIDEO: Highlights of England’s ODI win at Headingley to seal the series

World Cup, anyone?

England’s credentials as a one-day powerhouse received their biggest boost on Tuesday when Joe Root steered them to victory over India on his home ground of Headingley to seal a 2-1 series win.

The Yorkshire batsman brought up his consecutive hundred against India by knocking the ball through mid wicket for four when England required four runs to win.

It was a ruthless performance from Eoin Morgan’s side, who had their captain deliver with a knock of 88 and watched spinner Adil Rashid claim 3-49.

Set the target of 257 after Virat Kohli top scored for the visitors with 71, England had James Vince open alongside Jonny Bairstow with Jason Roy sidelined through a lacerated finger.
