What was thought to be a easy ride for India made things diffcult...

England won the final test match and levelled the series....

For the past few months India has been playing very good OD cricket....

If u r a fan of Sachin...U will have less interest in this series....So do I...But after all it is a contest betn two teams and not betn Sachin and England....

India Lost the toss and put into bat...Sehwag got out early a disastroous opening....


Soon india at one stage were 90 for 5 then 125 /7....It was Bhajji who played a good innings with bat and ball....

Bhajji hit Plunkett for a six and four in a over....

But india got all out for 203

Pathan gave an early breakthrough scalping two wickets of the first over...


Bhajji picked 5 wickets....carrer best spell



The wicket of Jones was a beauty...Batsman was caught in two minds...it was tossed up quick in the air...and beat the pad and bat to rearrange the furniture....

A classic Offspinner dismissal.....

Got to see the highlights....

Good performance by Bajji :clap:. But very disappointing performance by Indian batsmen.

ya,ofcourse. Its a magicl spell from bajji which had turned the things in favour of india. Pietersen and flintoff had demonstrated us,how to play a positive and aggressive cricket,both by attacking and defencing the indian bowling attack.

2nd ODI:

What a match is this??
England won the toss and decided to bat...

They had a good opening stand.
and then lost the wickets soon...

Bhajji, powar and yuvi bowled brilliantly....
226 all out
Dropped catches:
Raina dropped pietersen on 2
Powar dropped strauss on 26
Pathan failed to runout pietersen on 31

India started very aggressively and then the slowed down...at one stage they were 61-0 and suddenly collapsed...to 90-5 in 10 odd overs


Then came Raina Dhoni partnership...

Raina: executed all the shots....

some best shots are:
Lofted shot
punch thru covers
Sweept to fine leg(pace bowling)

Kaif poor run continues ...

This Powar looks very bad with childish coolers frame...See him....u cant control ur self

As far as he gets wickets no problem with his looks; let him be like "fatty" Inzy or like "froggy-jumper" Mianded :lol:
