Kuldeep Yadav claimed the best figures by a spinner in a one-day international in England to set India on the way to a massive win in the series opener at Trent Bridge.
His 6-25, also the best figures by a left-arm spinner in any ODI, shot England out for 268.
That target was made to look meagre by Rohit Sharma’s unbeaten 137 and 75 from India captain Virat Kohli.
They shared 167 as the visitors eased over the line with eight wickets and almost 10 overs to spare.
India, who have already won the Twenty20 series 2-1, can take victory in the three-match series at Lord’s on Saturday.
