India vs England 2008-09 Cricket Series

ODI matches postponed after attacks

The remaining two matches in England's one-day international series in India have been postponed following the terrorist attacks in Mumbai.
The England and Wales Cricket Board requested the matches in Guwahati and Delhi be called off and the Board of Control for Cricket in India gave their consent.
It remains to be seen whether the two-Test series is also abandoned with ECB and BCCI officials due to discuss the matter over the next 24 hours.
Hugh Morris, the ECB's managing director of England cricket, said: "On behalf of the Board and the England team, we would like to express our condolences to the families and friends of those people who were killed or injured in Wednesday night's attacks.

IND v ENG, 5th ODI, Cuttack: 5th rout, 2 left (IND: 5-0)

Put into bat, England scored their highest total of 270-6 in the ongoing ODI series in India at Cuttack, which included a 111 runs century from captain Kevin Pietersen, but still lost out to India. Pietersen is the first English captain to register a hundred away from home.
Indian vice-captain Virender Sehwag (91) added 136 for the first wicket with Sachin Tendulkar who made 50 and gave India a flying start. Sachin became the first batsman to register 90 fifties in ODIs.
England's bowlers removed Tendulkar, in-form Yuvraj Singh (6) and Sehwag in the space of 20 runs, the last two off successive deliveries, before the hosts recovered to reach 273 for four in 43.4 overs.
For his efforts, Sehwag was named man of the match for the second game in a row.
IND v ENG, 5th ODI, Cuttack: India 273 for 4 (43.4 overs) beat England 270 for 4 (50.0 overs) by 6 wickets

IND v ENG, 4th ODI, Bangalore: India beat England by 19 runs, take series (IND: 4-0)

Batting first in a rain-drenched day and night in Bangalore, India's daunting line-up further boosted by Sachin Tendulkar's return, amassed 166-4 in 22 overs with Virender Sehwag's 69 and Gautam Gambhir's 40.
In reply, set an adjusted victory target of 198 from 22 overs, Shah (72 runs off 48 balls, 9 4s, 3 6s) and Andrew Flintoff (41) gave England hope with a fine 82-run fourth-wicket partnership. But that could not prevent England from suffering a 19-run defeat by India, who took an unassailable 4-0 lead in the series for the Hero Honda Cup.
Sehwag, adjudged Man of the Match, joined the elite 6000-club on Sunday, when he hit the 36th run. He is the sixth Indian to do so after Sachin Tendulkar, Rahul Dravid, Saurav Ganguly, Mohammed Azharuddin and Yuvraj Singh. His fifty against England is his 32nd fifity of his ODI career.
The victory ensures India are still on target for a resounding 7-0 whitewash.

Sachin and Irfan back in ODI squad

One-day cricket's leading batsman Sachin Tendulkar was on Thursday included in the India squad for the next two matches against England, the cricket board said.
Tendulkar, 35, was rested for the first three games at his own request following the four-Test series against world champions Australia which India won 2-0 to annexe the Border-Gavaskar Trophy. Tendulkar, who has a world record 16,361 runs and 42 centuries to his name in 417 one-day internationals, last played limited-overs cricket for India in the tri-series in Australia in March.
Tendulkar and all-rounder Irfan Pathan are the two changes in the 15-man squad which took a 3-0 lead in the seven-match series against England at Kanpur.
The duo replace seamer Rudra Pratap Singh and uncapped opener Murali Vijay for the next two day-night matches in Bangalore on Sunday and Cuttack on Wednesday. The squad for the last two games in Guwahati and New Delhi will be named after the Cuttack match.
India team: Mahendra Dhoni (Captain), Gautam Gambhir, Virender Sehwag, Sachin Tendulkar, Suresh Raina, Rohit Sharma, Yuvraj Singh, Yusuf Pathan, Harbhajan Singh, Zaheer Khan, Ishant Sharma, Munaf Patel, Virat Kohli, Pragyan Ojha, Irfan Pathan.

IND v ENG, 3rd ODI, Kanpur: India beat England by 16 runs (IND: 3-0)

India overcame a wobbly start and some anxious moments before beating England by 16 runs via Duckworth-Lewis method in a closely-contested third cricket one-dayer to take a comfortable 3-0 lead in the seven-match series in Kanpur on Thursday.
Chasing 241 for a victory, the hosts were less dominating but were conscious of the Duckworth-Lewis requirement as they scored 198 for five in 40 overs before fading light necessitated an early end to the game. India needed to score 183 for five in 40 overs under the D/L method and were declared the winners when bad light came into play.
For the hosts, Virender Sehwag topscored with 68, while Yuvraj Singh scored a brisk 38 off just 31 balls. Captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni remained unbeaten on 29 to steer the team to victory in a more keenly contested tussle at the Green Park stadium.
After the early morning haze delayed the start and reduced the tie to a 49-overs-a-side affair, England captain Kevin Pietersen won the toss and had little hesitation in opting to bat first.
India now need to win the next match in Bangalore on Sunday to clinch the series by taking an unassailable 4-0 lead.
IND v ENG, 3rd ODI, Kanpur: India 198 for 5 (40.0 overs) beat England 240 all out (48.4 overs) by 16 runs (D/L)

IND v ENG, 2nd ODI, Indore: India beat England by 54 runs (IND: 2-0)

India defeated England by 54 runs in the second One-Day International and took a 2-0 lead in the seven-match Hero Honda Cup at Indore on Monday.
Chasing a victory target of 293 runs, England were bowled out for 238 runs in 47 overs that enabled India to take a 2-0 lead in the seven-match series. Yuvraj starred both with the bat and ball, scoring his 10th ODI century and then taking 4/28 to stun England.
Earlier, Yusuf Pathan slammed his maiden ODI fifty off 29 balls after Yuvraj Singh's magnificent century to take India to 292/9 in 50 overs.
Pathan hit four sixes and two fours in his rapid fire knock and scored 18 runs off the last over of the Indian innings bowled by Steve Harmison.
Yuvraj hit 15 fours and two sixes in his magnificent knock of 118 runs off 122 balls, 10th ODI century, and was instrumental in saving India, who were rattled after losing three quick wickets. Singh was dismissed by Stuart Broad trying to make optimum use of the third powerplay taken by India, Yuvraj went for a big shot but edged it to keeper Matt Prior to take a simple catch.

IND v ENG, 1st ODI, Rajkot: India thrash England by 158 runs (IND: 1-0)

Yuvraj Singh marked his return to form with a swashbuckling unbeaten 138 as India recorded its biggest victory by runs against England by spanking the hapless visitors by 158 runs in the series-opening cricket one-dayer at Rajkot today.
After rattling up a record total of 387 for five at home, the hosts then bundled out England for 229 in 37.4 overs in a lop-sided contest to take a 1-0 lead in the seven-match series. India's previous best victory margin by runs against England was 86 at Sydney in 1985 and their biggest margin is 257 runs against Bermuda at Port of Spain in 2007.
Yuvraj's ninth ODI hundred spurred India to post its second-highest ODI total ever -- well behind their 413-5 against Bermuda in the 2007 World Cup but ahead of its previous home record of 376-2 against New Zealand in 1999. Clobbered by the in-form Indian bastmen, the English attack conceded more runs than ever in one-dayers, surpassing the 353-6 against Pakistan at Karachi in 2005. India's highest previous total against England was 329-7 at Bristol in August 2007.
Yuvraj defied a troublesome back to roar back into form in great style as he plundered runs at will, belting as many as 16 boundaries and six sixes during his 78-ball massacre.
The dashing Virender Sehwag (85), Gautam Gambhir (51), Suresh Raina (43) and captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni (39) were the other notable performers after England captain Kevin Pietersen put India in to bat on a belter of a track at the Madhavrao Scindia stadium.
IND v ENG, 1st ODI, Rajkot: India 387 for 5 (50.0 overs) beat England 229 all out (37.4 overs) by 158 runs

ENG v MCA XI, Warm-up Match: England humiliated in Mumbai

England's build-up for the one-day series against India was left in disarray on Tuesday after they slumped to a humiliating warm-up defeat against Mumbai.
Just three days before the opener to the seven-match series in Rajkot, the tourists were dismissed for a lowly 98 in reply to Mumbai's 222 for seven. Facing a team made up mostly of club professionals, England never recovered from losing their first five batsmen inside the first 12 overs - with seamer Khsemal Waingankar, who has played only one first-class match in his career, claiming five wickets.
It follows a similarly shambolic effort in Antigua in the Stanford showdown when they were dismissed for just 99, and leaves the tourists facing an intensive few days of practice before they face India on Friday. England restricted Mumbai to a modest total, after deciding to bowl first, with Samit Patel and Steve Harmison claiming two wickets each.
It took a determined 65 from left-hander Sushant Marathe and a quickfire 37 off 35 balls, which included three sixes and a four, from Shaoib Shaikh to guide Mumbai even to that respectable total. But having performing impressively against more modest opposition on Sunday, England's brittle batting was exposed against the new ball - and they failed to recover from their dismal start.

IND v AUS, 4th Test, Nagpur, Day 5: India thrash Australia by 172 runs to regain Border-Gavaskar Trophy

India capped a tight bowling display to record a crushing 172-run victory over Australia in the fourth and final Test and wrap up the series 2-0 in Nagpur.
Australia was bowled out for 209 on the final afternoon as they chased an unlikely 382 to suffer their first Test series defeat since the 2005 Ashes in England. It was also India's first Test series win over Australia in seven years as they clinched the Border-Gavaskar Trophy.
Indian fast bowler Ishant Sharma was named man of the series. Matthew Hayden alone sustained his team's slim hopes with a bold 77.
Off spinner Harbhajan Singh was the highest wicket-taker with 4 for 64, while leg spinner Amit Mishra (3 for 27) and Sharma (2 for 31) provided valuable support.

India vs England 2008-09 Cricket Series

England focused on India challenge: Pietersen

England will try to make a fresh start during their tough one-day series in India following their disappointing Stanford defeat, captain Kevin Pietersen said Friday.
England slumped to a humiliating 10-wicket defeat in the winners-take-all 20 million dollar Twenty20 Stanford Superseries in Antigua last week, prompting widespread condemnation from fans and critics. They are now set to play seven one-day internationals against the hosts, starting on November 14 in Rajkot, followed by a two-Test series.

Tendulkar will be rested for part of cricket series against England

Sachin Tendulkar will be rested for the opening three matches of the seven-game one-day cricket series against England starting next week after India named a 15-man squad Wednesday.
Tendulkar has not played in the one-day international side since the tri-series victory over Australia in March, but the selectors granted his wish for a break.
"Considering the hectic schedule ahead and the amount of cricket he has already played this season, Sachin Tendulkar requested that he be rested for the first three ODIs," Indian board secretary N. Srinivasan said in a statement. "The selectors accepted his request." A groin injury ruled Tendulkar out of the series in Bangladesh and Pakistan earlier in the year and he suffered a left elbow problem during the Test campaign against Sri Lanka in August, preventing him from taking part in the one-day matches.

India ODI team: Mahendra Singh Dhoni (Captain), Virender Sehwag, Gautam Gambhir, Suresh Raina, Yuvraj Singh, Rohit Sharma, Yusuf Pathan, Harbhajan Singh, Zaheer Khan, Munaf Patel, Ishant Sharma, Pragyan Ojha, Rudra Pratap Singh, Virat Kohli, Murali Vijay.

India team for England series to be named Nov 5

The senior selection committee of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) will meet in Nagpur on November five to select the One-Day team for the seven-match series against England starting at Rajkot on November 14.
"The selectors will meet at Hotel Pride in Nagpur to pick the 14-member team for the One-Day series against England on November five," BCCI secretary N Srinivasan said on Monday.
The touring England team will play seven One-Dayers and two Test matches during their 40-day tour of India. Indian skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni and coach Gary Kirsten would attend the meeting chaired by former Indian opener and chief selector Krishnamachari Srikkanth.

India captain Kumble retires from Tests

Indian skipper Anil Kumble has retired from Test cricket with immediate effect, an Indian board official said here on Sunday, bringing down the curtain on a glorious international career.
"Kumble has conveyed his decision to retire to the chairman of selectors and he will make a formal announcement after the match," the official told reporters. Kumble, 38, retired from one-day cricket last year.
His announcement came during the post-lunch session on the fifth and final day of India's drawn third Test against Australia at the Feroz Shah Kotla stadium. As a result, Kumble will not travel to Nagpur for his team's fourth and final Test against Australia from November 6-10. The ace leg-spinner, with 619 wickets from 132 Tests, is India's most successful bowler ever.
He trails only Sri Lankan spinner Muttiah Muralitharan and Australia's retired Shane Warne in the list of the world's highest wicket-takers. Kumble, who missed India's 320-run victory in Mohali with a shoulder injury, bowled in the first innings here despite 11 stitches on a finger, reminding critics calling for his retirement of his resilience and value to the team.
He also bowled with a broken jaw against the West Indies in the Antigua Test in 2002. It was only fitting that his announcement came at a venue where he claimed all 10 wickets in an innings, the only bowler to have attained this feat after England's Jim Laker.
The veteran leg-spinner smiled and waved to the crowd from the dressing room while receiving handshakes from his teammates. He was also given a guard of honour by his teammates when he came out to bowl during Australia's second innings.

India captain Anil Kumble retired with his side still leading Australia 1-0 in the series after the third test ended in a draw on Sunday.
Legspinner Kumble declared India's second innings at 208-5 shortly after tea and then opened the bowling in his farewell to the game.
When the match was halted 15 overs early, and a draw inevitable, Australia was 31-0 chasing a target of 245.
