Moeen Ali took the wicket of Shikhar Dhawan in the fifth One-Day International (ODI) against England. Dhawan was dismissed for 31.

Earlier, England pacer James Anderson picked his second wicket of the match as he dismissed India batsman Virat Kohli, who edged the ball to the slips where Alastair Cook took a low catch to send the batsman back to the pavilion with an individual score of 13 from 21 balls. India now look shaky with a score of 25 for the loss of two wickets at the end of seven overs.

The dismissal adds another sorry figure to Kohli’s form in the recent past, which bears a sorry look. The only respectable knock to come from the Delhi lad’s bat was an innings of 40 from 50 balls in the third ODI at Trent Bridge.

India won the toss and elected to field first. 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 GurneyJoe Root’s superb century guided England to a commanding score of 294 for seven. After skipper Alastair Cook got England off to a good start, the pair of Root and Jos Buttler consolidated, while Stokes provided some late fireworks.
