Jos Buttler fell just one run short of his fifth half-century for England against India in the fifth One-Day International (ODI) at Headingley. Buttler’s 49 came off just 40 deliveries. Buttler was unfortunately run out by MS Dhoni, after having an LBW appeal against him turned down. He seemed to lose the ball as he set off for a run only for Dhoni to calmly whip off the bails.
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.
