India beat England by 100 runs, extend winning streak to six

Rohit Sharma-led Indian team continued their supreme run in the ongoing edition of World Cup and defeated England by 100 runs in Lucknow on Sunday.

Leading the team from the front, Rohit scored 87 off 101 balls, helping India pile a respectable 221/9 on a tricky surface.

England in response failed to resist the Indian attack spearheaded by Jasprit Bumrah. The tourists were bundled up for 129 in 34.5 overs.

Mohammed Shami, who completed a fifer in the previous encounter, continued from where he left and injected four blows in the seven overs he bowled.

Bumrah too returned with clinical figures reading 3/32, and the spin duo of Ravindra Jadeja and Kuldeep Yadav accounted for three wickets.
