India, after losing the toss, made 129 for seven against England in the Champions Trophy final at Edgbaston on Sunday 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.
