India Wins Fifth One-day International Cricket Match Against Host England


India has won the fifth one-day international cricket match against host England in Leeds.

Rain Sunday forced play to be scored using the Duckworth/Lewis method. India ended up a 38-run winner to reduce England's lead in the seven-match series to 3-2.

England was initially chasing 325 to win, but lost three wickets for seven runs in 13 balls as it slumped to 104 for four. After rain stopped play midway through the 17th over, England was chasing a revised target of 311 in 45 overs.

But rain finally forced an end to the match. At that point, England was well short of the Duckworth/Lewis par score on 242 for eight off 39 overs. India's 324 for six marked its third highest one-day international total against England.
