Oct 25, 2011England squandered a first wicket stand of 129 to lose all ten of their wickets for 47 runs in exactly 100 balls on their way to a humiliating second 5-0 whitewash in consecutive ODI tours of India. Chasing 272, openers Craig Kieswetter (63) and Alastair Cook (60) made a flying start with a 129-run stand, but were all out for 176 with 13 overs left with spinner Ravindra Jadeja taking 4-33.Dhoni hit his 43rd half century and remained not out on 75 from 69 balls, with 3 fours and 4 sixes to take India to 271 for 8.

Eden Gardens ready for the 5th ODI
Oct 25, 2011High on confidence, India will push for a 5-0 clean sweep when they meet England in the fifth and final cricket one-dayer at the Eden Gardens where the visitors have won just one of their last 17 matches. England's behaviour on this trip has been in the spotlight, with Steven Finn's shouting in the face of Raina after bowling him for a sparkling 62-ball 80 in Mumbai only making matters worse. A £250 fine was imposed on England’s fast bowler Tim Bresnan for breach of the ICC code of conduct after snatching his cap from on-field umpire Sudhir Asnani during the third game at Mohali. The absence of the likes of Virender Sehwag, Yuvraj Singh and especially Sachin Tendulkar - missing through injury - is cited as the reason for low attendance figures in the four matches played so far. The Gardens' with a standing capacity of 130,000 will host the T20I on Oct 29th, after the 5th and final ODI today. Teams (from):
India: Mahendra Singh Dhoni (Captain), Parthiv Patel, Ajinkya Rahane, Gautam Gambhir, Virat Kohli, Suresh Raina, Ravindra Jadeja, Praveen Kumar, R Ashwin, R Vinay Kumar, Umesh Yadav, Varun Aaron, Manoj Tiwary, Manoj Tiwary, S Arvind.
England: Alastair Cook (Captain), Craig Kieswetter, Jonathan Trott, Kevin Pietersen, Ravi Bopara, Jonny Bairstow, Samit Patel, Tim Bresnan, Graeme Swann, Steve Finn, Jade Dernbach, Ian Bell, Scott Borthwick, Stuart Meaker, Alex Hales, Jos Buttler.

IND v ENG, 5th ODI, Cuttack: India look to sweep England one-day series
Nov 25, 2008India will approach Wednesday's fifth one-day international against England as the start of a new series after clinching a decisive 4-0 lead, with the tourists out to salvage some pride.
Indian vice-captain Virender Sehwag said coach Gary Kirsten wants the hosts to play with the same intensity even though the seven-match series had been comfortably won already.
"Gary said we should see the remaining matches as a three-match series and try to win them all," Sehwag said ahead of the day-night match at the Barabati stadium in this coastal eastern town.
India are expected to throw in new faces for the rest of the series as the selectors attempt to build a strong base for the 2011 World Cup, to be hosted in South Asia.
National under-19 captain and top-order batsman Virat Kohli, left-arm spinner Pragyan Ojha and recalled all-rounder Irfan Pathan could make their first appearances in the series on Wednesday. There could be a further reshuffle for the last two matches, in Guwahati on Saturday and New Delhi on December 2.
England, meanwhile, will use the remaining games to get used to the fervent atmosphere in South Asian cricket ahead of the World Cup, and save themselves from further criticism at home.
