England failed to post a menacing total for India to chase in the third one-day international in Ranchi this morning.
The tourists didn't have a single batsman record a half-century as they struggled to 155 all out in 42.2 overs.
It was a solid enough start from Alastair Cook and Ian Bell but the former went with the score at 24-0 when he failed to make contact with Shami Ahmed's delivery and was given out lbw.
In came Kevin Pietersen and he also looked comfortable until he went for 17 - the same score Cook managed - off the bowling off Ishant Sharma. Pietersen seemed astonished by the decision and replays showed that the ball clipped his thigh pad, not the bat.
Bell (25) was gone moments after by edging Bhuvneshwar Kumar before Eoin Morgan and Joe Root steadied England towards 100.
They couldn't reach three figures without losing another wicket, however, as Morgan (10) attempted a trademark reverse sweep, only to mistime it straight into the palms of Yuvraj Singh.
