England vs. India, 4th ODI: Highlights, Scorecard and Report from Edgbaston

India massacred England by nine wickets to take an unassailable 3-0 lead in the one-day international series.

The hosts' batting yet again failed to sparkle, and they were dismissed for 206 in 49.3 overs after being put into bat at Edgbaston.

India polished off the total in just 30.3 overs as Ajinkya Rahane and Shikhar Dhawan made hay in the Birmingham sunshine.

After the first game in Bristol was abandoned due to bad weather, England had made 161 in Cardiff and 227 in Nottingham, as they failed to cope with India's slow bowlers.

This time, it was the seamers who did the early damage. Alastair Cook (9), Gary Ballance (7) and Alex Hales (6) were dismissed inside eight overs, with Bhuvneshwar Kumar removing both openers.

Eoin Morgan and Joe Root put on 80 for the fourth wicket, but they fell to the spinners in quick succession. Ravindra Jadeja had Morgan caught at leg gully for 32, and Root, on 44, failed to execute a reverse sweep off Suresh Raina and was caught at short third man.

The home fans had something to cheer about when a 50-run partnership for the sixth wicket came up off just 39 balls and the recalled Moeen Ali reached his second ODI half-century off only 37 balls after hitting three sixes.

However, he watched Mohammed Shami pick up his second wicket via a fortunate lbw decision to remove Jos Buttler (11) before Chris Woakes was run out.

Ali was bowled by Ravichandran Ashwin for 67 in the 47th over, and England were bowled out three balls short of their 50-over allocation as Shami finished with 3-28.

India's openers showed there were no devils in the pitch by dismantling the home attack.

They brought up a 150-run partnership at quicker than a run-a-ball pace, with Rahane's maiden ODI century coming up off 96 balls and including four sixes.

Their stand ended at 183 when Rahane sliced Harry Gurney to Cook after making 106, but Dhawan finished unbeaten on 97, sealing the victory by hitting Gurney for a six over mid-on.
