While Dhoni went past 10,000 ODI runs during the second match in Lord's, he was heavily criticised for his 59-ball 37.

Rashid´s haul included two wickets for two runs in six balls as he dismissed both India captain Virat Kohli, who top-scored with 71, and Suresh Raina in the 31st over.

It was England´s bowlers who set up this win, with Adil Rashid and David Willey, two of the five Yorkshire cricketers in their XI, taking three wickets apiece.

On Tuesday, with wickets falling in regular intervals, Dhoni remained calm and managed to score 42 runs off 66 balls.

He said, "He walked out today with a positive intent, but what didn't work in his favour was that Kohli got out soon".

But the introduction of Yorkshire fast bowler Liam Plunkett helped India break the shackles.

Dinesh Karthik, preferred to KL Rahul for this match, then made 21 before he was bowled between bat and pad by Rashid.

Donald Trump: New Air Force One Will Be Red, White, and Blue
The White House announced in February that it struck a deal with Boeing over the development of two new Air Force One planes. The White House style icons asked for an update to their Boeing 707s red color scheme after it was branded gaudy and regal.

The three-match series between two top-quality cricket playing nations ended in the favour of the host with England pulling the final ODI at the Leeds.

Fittingly, they were guided to a 2-1 series victory by an unbroken third-wicket...

India spinner Kuldeep Yadav took nine wickets in the series and climbed to a career-high sixth place in the standings. This led to widespread speculations on social media that Dhoni is contemplating retiring from ODI cricket.

Having split the limited-overs series - India won the Twenty20s, England the ODIs - the first of five tests begins on August 1 at Edgbaston.

Reiterating his point, he further added that constant experimentation in the middle-order is hurting the "top-heavy" side as India are over reliant on the top-three trio of Shikhar Dhawan, Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli. For England, it was Joe Root's 13th ton and a great partnership of 186* with captain Eoin Morgan that saw them chase down 256.

Dawid Malan was next in line but was released by England on Saturday to play with the Lions against India A at New Road with a view on getting him into form for the Test series. The live streaming of the match will be available on SonyLiv.com or the SonyLiv app.
