Cape Town - An undefeated 113 from England's Ian Bell set up a consolation seven-wicket win for the visitors in the fifth and final one-day international against India in Dharamsala on Sunday.

Suresh Raina scored 83 runs to help the hosts recover from a precarious 78 for five, to post a credible 226. Tim Bresnan (4-45) was England's best bowler.

England reached their victory target with 16 balls to spare. Eoin Morgan (40 not out from 40 balls) partnered Bell to steer England home.

Full scorecard

India still won the series 3-2.
