India 129-7 against England

India's Rohit Sharma plays a shot during the Champions Trophy Final cricket match against England at Edgbaston in Birmingham on June 23, 2013. India, after losing the toss, made 129 for seven against England after rain reduced the match to a 20 overs per side contest.

Medium-pace all-rounder Ravi Bopara led England's attack with three wickets for 20 runs from four overs.

Virat Kohli top-scored for India with 43 off 34 balls including a six and four fours.

India were looking to add the Champions Trophy title to the 2011 World Cup they won on home soil after beating Sri Lanka in a Mumbai final.

No reserve day has been scheduled for what was meant to be a 50 overs per side contest, and if hosts England face fewer than 20 overs when they bat, the match will be declared a no result and the trophy shared.
