England beat India to reach final

England beat India to reach final

England reached the final of the one-day tri-series courtesy of a three-wicket victory over India in Perth. India batted first and collapsed from 83-0 to 200 all out, with Steven Finn taking 3-36 and Ajinkya Rahane top-scoring with a patient 73. England were in deep trouble at 66-5 but were rescued by a sixth-wicket partnership of 125 between James Taylor (82) and Jos Buttler (67). England will play Australia in the final at the same venue on Sunday. Eoin Morgan's side have lost both of their games against the hosts in the tournament. The final will be England's last one-day international before the World Cup starts on 14 February, although they also have warm-ups against West Indies and Pakistan. Reigning world champions India, who failed to register a win in the tri-series, have warm-up games against Australia and Afghanistan.
