NOTTINGHAM, England (AP) – Ambati Rayudu hit an unbeaten 64 to help India coast to a six-wicket victory over England in the third One-Day International at Trent Bridge today, putting the tourists 2-0 ahead in the five-match series.

England set a modest target of 228 after failing to take advantage of an 82-run opening stand by Alastair Cook (44) and Alex Hales (42), eventually being dismissed for 227 on the last ball in the face of some intelligent spin bowling.

The Indians had little trouble in their chase, with Ajinkya Rahane (45) and Virat Kohli (40) setting them on their way before Rayudu’s 78-ball knock on his return to the team clinched victory with seven overs to spare.

With matches left at Birmingham and Leeds, India cannot now lose the series.
