English batter smashed 124 as England thrashed India by six wickets in the second ODI.

Jonny Bairstow smashed 124 as England thrashed India by six wickets in the second one-day international to level the three-match series at 1-1 on Friday.

Chasing a mammoth 337 for victory, Bairstow shared a thrilling 175-run second-wicket partnership with Ben Stokes, who hit 99 off 52 balls, as England romped home in 43.3 overs in Pune.

Bairstow's 112-ball knock, laced with 11 fours and seven sixes, trumped K.L. Rahul's 108 in India's 336-6 to take the series into the decider on Sunday at the same venue.
