    Bopara

    Ravi Bopara prepares to sweep as MS Dhoni looks on.

    Match Tied according to the Duckworth-Lewis method.

    Fortune favours the brave they say. England clinched the One-day series with a little help from rain and Ravi Bopara, who contributed with 96 runs. You can say they got lucky with the weather at Chester-le-Street, won all-important tosses in favourable conditions at Southampton and Kennington Oval but today they fought hard.

    After blanking India in the Test series, winning the one-off T20, England have now overwhelmed World Champions India in the 50-over format too. They deserved it. For India, well they did not deserve it.

    Raina and Dhoni did put up a fight to take India to 280 but with the kind of bowling resources

    01.51 am - This was one of India's better performances on this tour but it still wasn't enough to prevent England from winning yet another match. When India was 25 for 4 in the 11th over and 58 for 5 after 19 overs, it seemed the match would be over in a hurry, but Dhoni and Jadeja showed a lot of heart and spirit with their 112-run partnership and then Ashwin's cameo at the end took India to a respectable 234 for 7. Anderson did all the initial damage for England but was hit around in the death overs. Bresnan and Swann were excellent and economical with the ball.

    The biggest positive for India from this match was the impressive performance of Jadeja and he was deservedly named Man of the Match and will now hope to continue his good run going forward.

    It's no surprise that a full-strength England have outplayed a depleted Indian side yet again. India's batting seems to be returning to top shape, but they must think of adding variety to their bowling. As said earlier, Vinay, Munaf and Praveen all operate at the same pace. There's Varun Aaron on the bench. He is India's fastest bowler. As Sourav Ganguly said, why not play him since it can't get any worse than this for India.

    Do India have anything left to throw at England? We'll find out at the next match at the Oval. Till then, goodnight.


    England 103-1 in 10 overs - You know it's not your day when you bowl six bowlers in nine overs. The point made about lack of variety stands. England have been barely stretched and they're piling the runs on at 10 an over.
