  • Jonny Bairstow made his eighth ODI hundred (a 109-ball 111; 10 fours, 6 sixes) and his first of the 2019 World Cup to lay the foundation for a big total after Eoin Morgan won the toss and opted to bat first. Jason Roy provided the initial impetus and made a 57-ball 66 on his comeback from a hamstring injury. Ben Stokes then provided the final flourish by making his 19th ODI half-century, a 54-ball 79 (6 fours, 3 sixes) that took England to 337 for seven.

Rohit went on to make his 25th ODI century, a 109-ball 102 (15 fours), after Kohli fell for 66 (67 balls, 7 fours), his 54th ODI half-century, to Liam Plunkett. Rohit’s wicket shifted the momentum in England’s favour and they closed out the match (the 100th ODI between the two teams) to win by 31 runs.
  • Kohli suffered his 18th loss as India’s ODI captain. England registered their 42nd win over India in ODIs and the first in World Cups since 1992.
