Team India led by Virat Kohli clinched a thrilling decider to bag the three-match ODI series against England. The series was tied at 1-1, and both the teams gave their all in the deciding fixture. In the end, India held their nerve to outlast England by 7 runs. Let us look at the stats from the ODI series.
Only one ODI series won by England in India out of the ten they have played. The Three Lions’ ODI woes in the sub-continent continues.
