  • His innings, allied to fifties from captain Eoin Morgan (53) and David Willey (50 not out) helped England post a total of 322 for seven.
  • Victory saw England remain at number one, with India second, in the International Cricket Council men’s ODI standings.
  • “David came in and took a lot of pressure off me, to help us turn in what was at least a par score, so it was a fabulous effort from him,” said Root.
