  1. Post update

    So, England make it to the tri-series final, where they will come up against a rested Mitchell Johnson on a used Waca wicket. Good luck with that one.

    We'll back on Sunday morning to witness it. Have good weekend.

    England captain Eoin Morgan congratulates James Taylor

    England captain Eoin Morgan: "We certainly made it difficult for ourselves and both sides had to battle the conditions at times.

    "I always had a lot of confidence that if guys got themselves in, they'd take responsibility and Jos and James showed how ruthless they could be tonight.

    "I think there's a lot more to come from Jos. In the nets we get to see his full range of strokes and his repertoire.

    "We've got a great opportunity now on Sunday against Australia. We're going from strength to strength as a team and we're building little blocks that will hopefully build our confidence."

  3. Post update

    India captain MS Dhoni: "It was a difficult day. I thought we did well with the new ball and maybe a few more runs would have helped us. 40-45 more should have been the minimum we were looking for.

    "A few deliveries misbehaved, but I don't think the wicket was a factor. The English bowlers are more suitable for these conditions because they hit the deck harder.

    "We'll have to look at our attack, but we have to look at the complete balance of the side. If we looked to go in with four seamers, our batting would struggle. The lower-order needs to perform.

    "When we play with four seamers, we usually lose and the captain gets banned for a slow over-rate."

  4. Man of the match

    James Taylor

    Man of the match James Taylor: "Delighted with the win and to reach the final against Australia, but credit to Jos Buttler, what a fantastic innings from him.

    "I've been waiting in the wings for a few years to get my opportunity and hopefully today I showed what I can do.

    "I knew if I was there at the end, we'd be there or thereabouts. Jos managed to stay with me to help us along. I'm so glad we got over the line at the end after a tough challenge."

    "India, a disappointing performance from them. They could only score 200, they had England 66-5, but a great partnership from Buttler and Taylor took England towards victory."

  8. England win by three wickets

    Eng 201-7

    Won with a no-ball! Ravi Jadeja oversteps to complete the England win, which comes with 19 balls to spare. It wasn't always pretty, but the bottom line is that they go through to meet Australia in Sunday's final. India, the world champions, have problems before the World Cup.

  9. Eng 200-7

    Broad down the ground, scores level. England are in the final, but still need one run to win this game.

  15. Eng 196-7 (five to win)

    India have decided that short stuff is the way to go against Broad, but one bumper too many is called no-ball. When he goes full, Broad can work on the leg side for one. Six required, with a Woakes single through the covers ticking another off. Surely England can't mess this up?

    A huge appeal against Stuart Broad first ball! Looks out. Not given! A bumper, Broad jumping, caught behind by MS Dhoni. The umpire shakes his head. Good decision, came off the armguard.

  18. WICKET

    Buttler c Rayudu b Shami 67 (Eng 193-7)

    Jos Buttler

    Hmmmm, what's going here? Just when England seemed home and hosed, the pressure has been cranked and the two set batsmen have given their wickets away. This time it's Jos Buttler, driving Mohammed Shami to the hands of Ambati Rayudu on the cover fence. Eight runs still needed, only three wickets in hand. Game still on?

  20. Eng 193-6 (target 201)

    Pressure builds slightly as Woakes pushes back three Axar Patel dots, that's nine in a row. Buttler calls Woakes through to break the streak, beating a throw from point thanks partly to some lazy keeping from MS Dhoni. Another single. Eight needed.

    Matthew Walker: James Taylor is proving why you should pick the best one day players from county cricket. Jason Roy at six anyone?

    Ursal Razaq in Rugby: This is impressive stuff from England. Shows a gritty determination that has been lacking in the past. Broad has been unfairly criticised too. He's been part of an impressive bowling unit today and his hair looks great.

  22. Eng 191-6 (M Sharma 10-1-36-2)

    James Taylor was livid with himself as Stuart Binny fell backwards to cling on to that catch. It means that Chris Woakes, who probably was having a brew with his feet up, has been dragged out to the middle. He watches on as Buttler takes up the rest of a wicket maiden. Ten required.

  23. WICKET

    Taylor c Binny b M Sharma 82 (Eng 191-6)

    Gone! James Taylor can't finish the job, top edging a pull shot off the bowling of Mohit Sharma straight to Stuart Binny at long leg. A red-inker goes begging, but Taylor has dragged England right out of the mire and very probably to the tri-series final. His best innings in an England shirt.

    Five runs! Buttler home by an inch or so, meaning the overthrows garnered from the ball running to the boundary will stand. England only need 11 to win.

    We're getting to the stage where even a wicket shouldn't prevent England from winning this game. If a wicket doesn't come, they should get over the line with three or four overs to spare. Mohit Sharma, singles everywhere, India doing little to change the game. They look every inch a team that has been on tour since November without winning a game.

    The run-chase is well in hand, but James Taylor is still pressuring the field, almost to the surprise of Jos Buttler, who almost comes a cropper at the non-striker's end. Yet another Taylor dance and punch down the ground brings up the 100 partnership, with further fleet footwork bringing four through mid-wicket. England fans in the crowd play umpire and signal four. India fans cannot be heard.

  32. 50 for Jos Buttler

    Eng 163-5

    The completion of a classy half-century with a heart-in-mouth moment. After hammering a straight drive down the ground for four, Jos Buttler gets mid-on interested with an aerial chip. It evades the man, skips to the fence and brings the England wicketkeeper a sixth ODI half-century. So often used as a biffer, adding the role of finisher would be another impressive addition to the Buttler CV.

  33. Eng 154-5 (Taylor 69, Buttler 42)

    James Taylor

    A touch of luck for Taylor? Or good skill? If he misses this sweep off Patel, he's plumb in front. Instead, the tiniest slither of an inside edge sends it fine for four to get the runs required down below 50. This stand is up to 88. The last 15 wickets have fallen for 163.

  34. Post update

    Charles Dagnall

    BBC Test Match Special

    "This might not be too bad a game to lose. My theory is this is not the best Waca wicket, certainly if you have to play on the same pitch again on Sunday. Would you fancy facing Mitchell Johnson on this?"

  35. Eng 148-5 (Taylor 63, Buttler 42)

    This is the beauty of cricket. While Taylor and Buttler remain, this should be straightforward for England. But, just one mistake, one good bit of cricket from India, one bit of luck, could turn the match on his head. Shami strives for the crease, twice dropping short to allow Taylor to get on the pull. TV replays show the missed run out of Jos Buttler ealier on. How important might that be?

    Freddie Higgs: With India only getting 200 Taylor's steady approach is what we always needed from the off, what a partnership though!

    David McQueen: Not sure about concerns over this partnership. They're set. Regardless, Woakes and Broad more than capable of cleaning up 50.

    Sam Wilson: James Taylor is certainly a "Handy Man" to have in "Hard Times"

  37. Eng 147-5 (need 56 to win)

    Axar Patel, bandages on both elbows, twirls his long limbs towards Taylor, who continues to busily sprint between the sticks. The man dressed as the Cookie Monster has bottled it and removed the head, revealing some Men In Black shade and a snapback cap. Questionable.

    The numbers have been crunched and here's the verdict: 58.8% of you say England are a better one-day side under Eoin Morgan.

  39. Eng 142-5 (target 201)

    More tinkering, more Mohammed Shami, more desperation for a wicket from India. The bowling is tidy without being threatening. The noise that was once being produced by the India fans is quelled. Ooofff, a foray past Buttler's outside edge from Shami, the another. Maybe the bowling is a little more threatening that I first thought...

    "60 to win off 90 balls, these two should certainly be able to take it home. There's a time for James Taylor to stand up here and take England through to the finish line in a pressure situation."

  41. Eng 141-5 (Taylor 57, Buttler 41)

    MS Dhoni is shuffling his pack, recalling Axar Patel to the attack. No real threat, though. I wonder if he's considering giving Suresh Raina a trundle. Six pressure-free runs from it, England inching ever closer. India need something to happen, or they will have Sunday off. Powerplay coming up.

    Elliot Fox: Although he may not always perform, when it comes to the big moment Buttler very rarely lets us down. Taylor seems like a big-game grinder too, and hopefully they will be able to see us home.

    Is this still the same game from the 50-over period that saw batsmen from both sides surrender like Lemmings dropping off a cliff? Jadeja wheels away after drinks, twirling towards Taylor's twinkle-toes. Taylor, all fast bat and rubber wrists, slices through point for a couple. England favourites now?

  45. 50 for James Taylor

    Well batted, James Taylor, a fourth half-century in eight games since being recalled to this England ODI side. If it gets them over the line and to the tri-series final, it might also be his most important. He moves to it with his umpteenth scampered single off the 86th ball he's faced. The big question is, how did it take so long to get him in the team? Drinks.

    Yep, you feel that the ball game is right here, in this partnership. Break it soon and you fancy India. If it lasts another 10 overs, England will be there or thereabouts. Ravi Jadeja to skip in, Buttler and Taylor happy to dance, go deep in the crease, work the ball.

    Only one, unimpressive, over from Axar Patel/Gareth Keenan, who is hauled off in favour of the hardworking Mohit Sharma. Oh, Jos Buttler, what are you doing to me? That is a lovely off-drive, more fun between the covers than you can have tucked up in bed. Whisper it quietly, but this pair are looking comfortable.

  50. Eng 119-5 (target 201)

    Ravi Jadeja has moved his shades and questionable facial hair to the other end, giving us a double dose of left-arm spin. Buttler deftly late cuts to bring four, taking the stand to 50. Oooohhhh, careful Joseph, be wary of that one that skids on. The flat-footed Buttler almost undone by a little scuttler. England need 82 from 120 balls.

    Terry Alderman

    Ex-Australia seam bowler on BBC Test Match Special

    "When you talk about Twenty20 and how many runs can be scored off the last 10 overs, it's normally around 100. When you equate that to 50-over cricket, you think a small target like this is quite easy to chase. But it's been made difficult by India taking regular wickets."

  52. Eng 111-5 (Taylor 43, Buttler 25)

    Mackenzie Crook as Gareth Keenan

    The tall, slender figure of Axar Patel comes back into the attack to bowl his left-arm tweakers from round the wicket. I'll be honest, he reminds me of Gareth from The Office. Slip and short cover in place, but neither are in the game as Patel angles the ball down the leg side. Five easy runs taken. England nudging back into it.

  53. Text 81111

    Will in Hereford: Bopara strikes me as someone who doesn't actually understand his role in the side. If he isn't going to bowl then I don't see any reason for his inclusion.

  54. Eng 106-5 (partnership 40)

    It's gloomy in Perth. This is a day game, so we shouldn't be tangoing with the darkness of nighttime. What sounds like a set of well-oiled England fans sing some frankly unwelcome songs as Shami pins Taylor on the gloves. Still, this pair are quietly accumulating, slowly rebuilding. The rate isn't an issue for England, but wickets are. If they bat through, they will probably win.

  55. Eng 101-5 (need 100 to win)

    I suppose, in situations like these, context is key. Needing 104 runs with five wickets in hand should usually put you in with a decent shout. It's the fact that your first five wickets were lost for 66 that provides the problem. Anyway, Jos Buttler goes inside out for a powerful cover driven four off Ravi Jadeja, but is almost undone cutting at one that bounces.

  56. Email

    Richard Norgate: What's all the fuss about? We've used up half the overs to get around half the runs we need. We can just accelerate a bit in 10 overs time and be home with a few overs to spare...

    James Taylor

    Thanks Adam. In the 50 overs since I was last here, 14 wickets have fallen. England somehow let India get from 165-9 to 200 all out and are now making a right mess of the chase. Granted, the ball is going up and down - I wonder how Mitchell Johnson might bowl on this in the final - but England's shot selection has been worse than awful. Mohammed Shami is camped back of a length, fizzing the ball past James Taylor's nose.

    Ravi Jadeja continues left-arm round the wicket. More neat and tidy stuff from the slow bowlers for MS Dhoni. Taylor shows some invention though as he picks up five runs for himself and England add six to the total. As we reach halfway in this innings, it's time for me to take a blow as the captain might say on field and hand the live text baton back to Stephan Shemilt.

    More terrible shot selection from England, who gift another wicket to Stuart Binny. Morgan mis-cues to mid-on where Dhawan takes the catch and the captain makes his way off. Hard to fathom why England can't seem to get this innings going and you have to fancy India from here.

  75. Eng 52-3 (Taylor 16, Morgan 1)

    Axar Patel looks to have Morgan in all sorts of trouble. A couple of balls rise up just short of a good length and thankfully fall to vacant areas of the field.

    Morgan survives an enthusiastic appeal for leg before from Binny. Coming round the wicket, it looked to be hitting him too high. Replays reveal it was on the umpire's call for line and height had we been using DRS. Just the one run from the over as Taylor continues to nudge and nurdle. Time for drinks.

  80. Eng 45-3 (Patel 3-1-3-1)

  90. Eng 35-1 (Moeen 16, Taylor 5)

    More brilliant fielding in the circle from Ajinkya Rahane. This time he denies Moeen a certain boundary with a diving stop at cover. Great back-up for the excellent bowling from Mohit Sharma so far. Moeen picks up three with a lofted drive, but it's safe between mid-off and extra cover. Taylor once again takes a big swing and a miss as he looks to drive through the offside. End of the mandatory powerplay where 35-1 plays 34-0.

  91. Eng 32-1 (Moeen 13, Taylor 5)

    Moeen Ali

    Taylor swings and misses at a couple of driveable-length balls outside off. He connects perfectly with a pull shot, but is denied four by a diving one-handed stop by Rahane at square leg. Moeen cuts loose and breaks the shackles with an exquisite cover drive for four. A clever quick single follows and England collect seven from the over.

    Grant in Portugal: From the moment Dhoni was lbw to a ball staying low the warning signs were there for England. If India bowl straight they can get back into this.

  93. Eng 25-1 (Moeen 8, Taylor 4)

    Mohit Sharma continues his economical start and England continue to be squeezed in this opening powerplay. Continuing round the wicket, he almost accounts for Moeen, who edges just short of Shikhar Dhawan at first slip.

    Bibhash Dash: If ever there was a chance for India's bowlers to prove their worth it is today. Else, kiss our Cricket World Cup last-four chances goodbye

  95. Eng 21-1 (target 201)

    Shami gets more movement off the seam both over and round the wicket as he alternates his angle of attack to the right and left-hander. More watchful stuff from Moeen and Taylor for the time being.

  96. Email

    Kelvin Singh, India fan, Kettering: So, after England beat Australia in the final of this tournament is there any point in the World Cup going ahead or should we just give the trophy to England?

  97. Eng 19-1 (Moeen 6, Taylor 1)

    More disciplined bowling from Mohit Sharma. England look like they'll have to take a bit of time to adjust to conditions early on here, similar to how Rahane and Dhawan did for India at the start of their innings. They put on 83 for the opening wicket. England could do with a similar platform after the early loss of Ian Bell.

  98. Eng 16-1 (Moeen 3, Taylor 1)

    Mohammed Shami comes on for Stuart Binny after just two overs. Taylor ends up on the deck as he gets in a bit of a tangle with his feet as he digs out a full pitched ball. Once again he shows signs of shuffling around a bit at the crease early in his innings.

    Andrew Stone: I see Broad's figures were the least economical. Not for the first time in the last couple of days. #stay #humble

  100. Eng 15-1 (Target 201)

    A great start from Mohit Sharma, who had Moeen in a tangle earlier in that wicket-taking over. He tried a couple of attempted pull shots, but didn't connect. James Taylor comes in at three and is immediately off the mark with a single.

    Terry Alderman

    Ex-Australia seam bowler on BBC Test Match Special

    "It kept low. It looked like a cross-seamer. It was right on the money, gun-barrel straight. Bell didn't get anywhere near it. India need early wickets and they have one. Mohit is bowling at good pace. 140kph is quick enough on this wicket."

  102. WICKET

    Bell lbw b M Sharma 10 (Eng 14-1)

    Mohammad Shami strikes

    Up goes the umpire's finger with little hesitation to send Ian Bell on his way. Ball from Sharma caught him on the back foot and trapped him well in front of all three stumps. It appeared to cut back in off the seam and didn't get up at all.

    Jonathan in Kampala: England to do it the hard way? Get to 180-2 before a collapse, with Finn finally hitting an inside edge for 4 to get the winning runs.

  104. Eng 13-0 (Bell 10, Moeen 2)

    Binny continues and almost gets a chance to pick up Bell's wicket. A mis-cued drive finds the gap in the field behind square on the offside and he comes back for two. A confident drive is then stopped brilliantly by Kohli at mid-off, but next ball finds the gap in the covers for a second boundary. He gets a surprise from the last ball, which rears up towards his chest, but Bell fends it off.

    Simon Levy: In the last 2 years, Broad averages over 40 with an economy rate of over 5.7. Place should be under threat.

  106. Eng 6-0 (Target 201)

    It's Mohit-not-Rohit-or-Ishant Sharma to open up for India at the other end. An encouraging start for the right-arm seamer who gets some nice carry and swing in the air. Moeen doesn't lay a bat on the first four balls, but picks up a single from the fifth as Mohammed Shami misfields at mid-on.

  107. Text 81111

    Duncan: Never mind 'Wake up to Wogan' that's how I like to start my Friday mornings...plenty of pictures of celebrating England bowlers..So far so good..let's hope the good work is followed up by a decent batting performance.

  108. Eng 5-0 (Bell 4, Moeen 0)

    Stuart Binny opens the bowling for India to Messrs Bell and Moeen for England. He bowled seven overs unchanged at Brisbane as England chased down victory with nine wickets in hand. He starts off today with a wide before Ian Bell opens up his account with a confident front-foot drive over the covers for four. Steady start.

  109. Email

    Ade: Important thing for England is to play with freedom of last few games and not get bogged down and increasing the pressure if wickets fall.

    Terry Chard: Great bowling performance by England. This team is getting better match by match. Going to do well in the World Cup.

  110. Time please....

    Almost time to get back under way in Perth, A reminder - England need 201 to win and to set up a final against Australia on Sunday.

  114. First innings catch-up

    India take a run

    So, to recap in case you weren't with us from the off, England won the toss and put India in under a muggy sky at the Waca. Rahane and Dhawan made a steady start and put on 83 for the first wicket, before England's bowlers fought back. Three wickets for Steven Finn and two apiece from Moeen, Broad and Woakes. The next highest partnership - 35 from the final pair as India just managed to reach 200.

    James from Poole: I don't think enough is being made of Jimmy's figures, unbelievable economy!

    England pace bowler James Anderson: "The pitch isn't as good as we thought it would be. There's a bit of variable bounce. If we can build a platform, it gets easier to bat. Hopefully we can do that.

    "If there's a bit of swing earlier on, we have to get through that. The two balls to Dhoni were an example of the uneven bounce, we have to get through that.

    "There were a couple of overs where 10 and 11 got away from us, but overall, I thought we bowled brilliantly throughout. If we bat 50 overs, I back us to get over the line."

  119. WICKET

    Shami c Buttler b Woakes 25 (Ind 200 all out)

    It's all over and Jos Buttler has a fourth catch of the innings as Shami's entertaining cameo comes to a close. Just in time too as Morgan was beginning to look a little frustrated as the India 200 came up with a wide. That's the second-highest score by a number 11 for India against England.

  120. Post update

    Brad Hogg

    Ex-Australia spinner on BBC Test Match Special

    "The body language wasn't good from Anderson. He didn't get behind the stumps. Mohit would have been out. You can tell how a team's going by their attitude in the field. In the last five or six overs, they have been too sloppy."

  121. Ind 199-9 (Shami 25, Sharma 7)

    Sloppy here from England at the end of this innings. Having done the hard part, they appear to have switched off for the final few overs. Anderson manages to miss the stumps as he gathers the ball at the bowlers end and Mohit Sharma would have been out by a yard. That's followed by a wide and then another four for Mohammed Shami with a late cut down to third man.

  122. Ind 190-9 (Shami 18, Sharma 6)

    Woakes gets some more tap from Shami, who cuts a four away to the offside to add to his earlier six show how well he can strike a ball either side of the wicket.

  123. Post update

    Brad Hogg

    Ex-Australia spinner on BBC Test Match Special

    "It surprises me. England are bowling their death bowlers, who are preparing for a World Cup. Where are the variations? They are taking the foot off the pedal, bowling poorly."

  124. Ind 183-9

    Glorious shot from Mohammed Shami. Chris Woakes pitches it too short and it's pulled away to deep square leg and in to the crowd on the grass bank.

  125. Ind 177-9 (Shami 7, Sharma 5)

    Stuart Broad

    Stuart Broad comes in for his final over. Shami has to contend with a late rising delivery which forces him to take the bottom hand off the bat. Mohit Sharma gives Broad a send off at the end of his spell with a swashbuckling cut shot away for four.

  126. Ind 170-9 (Finn 10-0-36-3)

    Mohammed Shami is the man in at 11 for India and he opens up with a very commendable four down to third man. Puts some of his top and middle order colleagues to shame with a neat lofted late cut down to the rope. That's the end of Finn's allocation. The Watford fan can be very proud of his efforts.

  127. Post update

    Brad Hogg

    Ex-Australia spinner on BBC Test Match Special

    "It's another dismal shot from an India batsman. Axar shouldn't have been out there at this stage, the top order should have done better. Axar is not having a good tour."

  128. WICKET

    Patel c Bell b Finn 1 (Ind 165-9)

    Steven Finn

    More brilliant fielding from Ian Bell and it's another smart slip catch to give Finn his third wicket. Bell dives to his left this time and takes it with both hands. It's been a steady procession from India and that opening partnership of 83 seems an eternity ago now.

  129. Ind 165-8 (Broad 9-1-49-2)

    So it's Axar Patel and Mohit Sharma together at the crease for India now, who have a job on their hands just to get their side to 200.

  130. Post update

    Terry Alderman

    Ex-Australia seam bowler on BBC Test Match Special

    "You would expect that from a tailender with an over to go. But, with seven overs to go, you would expect India to make 30 runs. It's a bailout shot from Jadeja. It's as if he's seen Anderson hit Dhoni on the head and thought he doesn't want to be out there."

  131. WICKET

    Jadeja c Finn b Broad 5 (Ind 164-8)

    An absolutely clueless bit of cricket from Jadeja who presents an easy catch to mid on. He tries to take Stuart Broad on and dispatch him over deep mid wicket, but all he does is send a ball skyward.

  132. WICKET

    Dhoni lbw b Anderson 17 (Ind 164-7)

    James Anderson strikes

    Dhoni is on his way as Anderson traps him in front on the back foot. The end of an uncomfortable over which began with Anderson hitting the front of his helmet with a nasty, rearing short ball. Right on the badge is where it hits him and Dhoni showed his appreciation for the added bounce. There was a smile on his face as he took off the lid and had a friendly chat with Anderson.

  133. Ind 162-6 (Moeen 10-0-35-2)

    Moeen Ali

    Moeen completes his spell with just two runs off his final over.

  134. Post update

    Jim Maxwell

    BBC Test Match Special

    "Dhoni can't get to Moeen Ali, he's stuck between caution and attack. India are pinned down. It's looking like a struggle to get to 200."

  135. Ind 160-6 (Dhoni 15, Jadeja 3)

    Jimmy Anderson back on to bowl as we start the final 10 overs. He almost grabs the wicket of Ravi Jadeja whose pull shot falls just short of Steven Finn sprinting in off the rope. He puts the full dive in, but can only meet the ball on the half volley.

  136. Ind 157-6 (Broad 8-1-48-1)

    India score just 23-2 in that powerplay and they've lost 5 for 49 overall as England have kept the squeeze on.

  137. Email

    Chris in Queensland: I took the day off to watch this match only for the wife to ring at 2:45pm, when England were struggling to take a 2nd wicket, to say that she has a meeting to organise and can I pick the children up from school. No problem. I get home and India are 5 down. Typical.

  138. Dropped catch

    Ind 157-6

    Ian Bell comes close to repeating his acrobatics! Bit harsh to call it a drop in fairness, but he almost snaffles Dhoni's wicket as the India captain cuts one and edges wide of slip and just out of the reach of his right hand. The ball runs away for four.
