England defeat India by 41 runs in fifth ODI


Leeds (United Kingdom) (5th Sept, 2014): England beat India by 41 runs to win the fifth and final one-day international at Headingley on Friday.

But world champions India still won the series 3-1.

Joe Root's 113 was the cornerstone of England's 294 for seven as he became the first Yorkshireman to score an ODI hundred at Headingley in what was also his first match at this level on his home ground.

Root and Jos Buttler (49) revived England's innings with a fifth-wicket partnership of 108.

India, chasing 295 to win, lost two early wickets to James Anderson (two for 39) and were all out for 253.

Ambati Rayudu made 53 but India were rarely up with the rate.

All-rounder Ravindra Jadeja worried England with a dashing 87 but he was last man out, playing on to fast bowler Steven Finn, as England won with eight balls to spare.

Brief scores

England 294-7, 50 overs (J Root 113)
