The England cricket team humbled India by six wickets in the second ODI International to level the three-match series level at 1-1 and set up a mouthwatering finale at the Maharashtra Cricket Association Stadium in Pune on Sunday.

While the Indian cricket team rode on the inspirational knocks of KL Rahul and Rishabh Pant to post a score of 336, England's Jonny Bairstow and Ben Stokes orchestrated the third-highest successful run chase by any team against the Men in Blue in the 50-over format.
