India are 43/3 after 10 overs. 14:22 hrs IST: Brilliant Yuvraj! Liam Plunkett bowls it too full outside off and Yuvraj bends the back knee to cream the drive to the deep cover fence.

Had Moeen tried getting a hand to it, his fingers would have been broken, Dhoni hit it so hard. 15:08 hrs IST: BOOM! Vintage Yuvraj. That is a treat to watch and write. Full ball but in the slot outside off, Yuvraj pounces on the length and lofts it over wide long off for the first six off the game. 15:10 hrs IST: SHOT!

Australia are closing in on a 2-1 series win. 16:08 hrs IST: The fourth-wicket partnership between Dhoni and Yuvraj is now the best against England in ODIs for this particular wicket. The previous best was by Amla and de Villiers, which was 172 in 2012. 16:10 hrs IST: This is carnage in Cuttack. Ball is bowling short and outside off but it does not matter as Yuvraj crunches two big pull shots to deep mid wicket. The base is set perfectly for the onslaught. 16:12 hrs IST: The Indian physio has come out to treat MS Dhoni. It seems like he is having a side strain. But, he seems to be alright. 16:16 hrs IST: CRUNCH! What a shot. Dhoni dances down the track and Woakes shortens the length, Dhoni adjusts and whiplashes the pull shot to long on, gets a bit of a top edge but enough to cross over the ropes, reminds me of a similar shot Kevin Pietersen played against Jason Gillespie at the Oval in 2005. 16:18 hrs IST: The 200-run partnership is up between Dhoni and Yuvraj.

Tendulkar had 1455 runs in 37 games while Yuvraj is now on top of the mountain. 16:28 hrs IST: Another poor ball from Stokes and Yuvraj makes him pay. Full and on the pads, the left-hander flicks it to fine leg, comes closer to overhauling his highest individual score in ODIs. 16:30 hrs IST: WALLOP! This is batting at his best. Full ball and on off stump, Yuvraj swings through the line to loft it over long on. This is his highest individual score in ODIs, beating the 139 against Australia in Sydney in 2004. 16:34 hrs IST: India are 261/3 after 40 overs. Stage set for carnage central. Yuvraj and Dhoni in particular are the masters of the death. England will feel that this is their worst nightmare.
