Rahul continued to flounder with his batting with his captain, Virat Kohli, joined him in the centre.Some superb late hitting from India’s lower order ensured a nail-biting finish, but ultimately they fell six runs short of the target, on 316-9, despite only needing six runs off the final FOUR balls.English opener Roy notched his third fifty in a row as he along with Sam Billings did well to negotiate the first hour on a moving Eden Gardens track to put up a solid foundation. Pacer Chris Woakes bowled a steady last over that saw India come within a touching distance of England’s score of 321/8, but the hosts could not cross the line despite another fine performance by Kedar Jadhav (90).With the big-names out, conditions suiting England’s seamers and the run-rate creeping above nine-per-over, India seemed all but out of the game.
