Monday, 24 June 2013 - 8:20


England's search for a global one-day title goes on after they collapsed to a five-run defeat by India in a pulsating Champions Trophy final at Edgbaston.

Chasing a modest 130 in a game reduced to 20 overs per side by rain, England were set for a historic triumph with 20 needed off 16 balls and Eoin Morgan and Ravi Bopara at the crease.

However, Morgan's departure for 33 was the first of four wickets to fall for three runs in eight balls as the team were struck by nerves.


England finished on 124-8 after James Tredwell missed the last ball of the innings with six required for victory.
