India vs England fifth ODI at Calcutta

India complete series whitewash over England [IND-ENG:5-0 (5/5)]

England 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. With this innings, Dhoni has added 340 ODI runs in six innings since England last dismissed him at The Oval in September. He faced 285 balls, hitting 28 fours and 11 sixes for his 340. India scored 39 runs in the final two overs. England took the first three Indian wickets with the score on 80. India made one change, with Right-hand batsman Manoj Tiwary replacing Parthiv Patel. Ravindra Jadeja was the Man of the Match for his 21 from 27 balls and 4-33. MS Dhoni was the Man of the Series for his 212 runs without losing his wicket in this series, which included two 50s. The series ended with Ian Bell getting involved in a fracas with Ravindra Jadeja as the teams shook hands, and Jade Dernbach, who was not playing in the game, pushing Jadeja. An ashen-faced Cook was booed at the end-of-match ceremony by the Kolkota crowd.
India 271/8 in 50 ov (Dhoni 75*, Rahane 42, Gambhir 38) beat England 176 (Jadeja 4-33, Kieswetter 63) by 95 runs

Eden Gardens ready for the 5th ODI

High 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.

Do-or-die game for England

Whitewashed in all formats of the game in England earlier this summer, India - still missing more than half the victorious World Cup squad - turned around things and defeated the visitors with consummate ease in the first two ODIs in Hyderabad (by 126 runs) and Delhi (by eight wickets) in the series billed as the 'Payback series'. Down 0-2 with three to play, England have to win at the PCA stadium on Thursday if they entertain any hopes of an unimaginable series triumph. Teams (from):

India vs England second ODI at Delhi

Hefty eight-wicket win for India [IND-ENG:2-0 (2/5)]

India scored a massive 8 wicket win over England with 80 balls to spare at Kotla, in the second ODI. On their home ground, the left-right combination of Virat Kohli and Gambhir put on an unbroken 209 from 179 balls - a new Indian record for the third wicket - to take India to victory in the 37th over. 22 year old Kohli smashed his seventh one day international hundred, and his second against England in three matches, while Gambhir scored 84. Kohli's was the first ton by an Indian at the Ferozeshah Kotla since Tendulkar hit a century in 1996.When England last came to India for one-dayers three years ago they lost 5-0, the tour before that it was 6-1. The 3rd ODI is on Thursday, October 20.
India 238/2 in 36.4 ov (Kohli 112*, Gambhir 84*) beat England 237 (Pietersen 46, SR Patel 42, R Vinay Kumar 4-30) by 8 wickets

300-run pitch waiting at Kotla

The Ferozeshah Kotla pitch which had been banned from hosting international games in the lead-up to the World Cup following the abandoned India-Sri Lanka ODI in Dec 2009, will be in focus when India take on England in the second ODI in Delhi. BCCI's grounds and pitches committee chairman Venkat Sundaram told Times of India: "The centre strip has been prepared for the second ODI and as is the norm for most Indian wickets, it will slow down slightly as the match progresses. But I think it's a 300-run wicket and there shouldn't be any complaints." India is still without the presence of Sachin Tendulkar, Virender Sehwag and Zaheer Khan. The spin duo of R Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja, who scalped three wickets apiece in Hyderabad, will again have a big role to play at the Kotla where the track was expected to assist the slow bowlers. Match begins at 2.30 pm IST.

India vs England first ODI at Hyderabad

India beat England by 126 runs [IND-ENG:1-0 (1/5)]

Ravichandran Ashwin took 3 wickets for 35 while Ravindra Jadeja bagged 3 for 34.The Television coverage of the first ODI of the series was disrupted by a picture blackout caused by a breakdown in negotiations between production company Nimbus and the Board of Control for Cricket in India and the Indian government. The issue was resolved four overs into the match.
