Joe Root scored his second century for England against India in the fifth One-Day International (ODI) at Headingley. Root’s ton came off 105 balls. He brought up his knock with a six off Ravindra Jadeja.
Earlier, India won the toss and elected to field first, having won the series after their resounding nine-wicket win in the previous ODI. Dhawal Kulkarni got to play just one game before being dropped in favour of Umesh Yadav, while Ben Stokes and James Tredwell came in to replace Gary Ballance and Harry Gurney.
