PERTH, Australia (AP) James Taylor and Jos Buttler made half centuries in a 125-run partnership which steered England to a three-wicket win over India on Friday and into the final of cricket's one-day international tri-series.
Stuart Binny took 3-33 to reduce England to 66-5 as it chased India's meager total of 200, before Taylor (82) and Buttler (67) joined in a sixth-wicket partnership which shored up a shaky innings.
England will face Australia in Sunday's final on the same WACA Ground. The match may also act as a dress rehearsal for their meeting at Melbourne on Feb. 14 to open the Cricket World Cup.
