Bell injury blow for England

England were without the injured Ian Bell in the fourth ODI match at Edgbaston, and made two other changes against India.

Number three batsmen Bell was missing with a sore big left toe, after being hit in practice, meaning a recall for Gary Balance for the first time in this series - while Moeen Ali and Harry Gurney replaced Ben Stokes and James Tredwell.

The hosts were set to bat first on a gloriously sunny morning after losing the toss to an India team in which debutant Dhawal Kulkarni was brought in for Mohit Sharma.

England are 2-0 down and must win here, and again in the final match at Headingley on Friday, to avoid a fourth defeat in their last five one day international series.
