Pune: At one point England were in a strong position in the game and Sam Curren was trying to win his side in Dhoni form at the crease, but a pass from Bhuvneshwar Kumar was knocked down. India beat England by 7 points in a thrilling game on Sunday to win the ODI three-game series 2–1.
Bhuvneshwar Kumar did wonders at the 48th
India’s victory wouldn’t have been possible if Bhuvneshwar Kumar hadn’t kept Sam Curren silent in the 48th. At the 47th above, Sam Curran scored 18 points off Shardul Thakur, who opened the doors to England’s victory, but at the 48th above, Bhuvneshwar Kumar made just 4 points to compensate. This end of Bhuvneshwar Kumar really saved India from defeat, otherwise Sam Curran would have won England.
