The fourth ODI played between India and England in Bangalore went in favourite of the home team.The rain played an important role in the match.

In today’s match Sachin came into act and with losing the toss,India’s captain Dhoni was asked to bat first.Sachin and Sehwag opened the innings and it was a slow start for India.The master Sachin was bowled cleanly by Broad and he returned to pavilion when he was 11.After that, two delhi batsmen joined the party.But the rain interrupted the play.The game was reduced to 22 overs and it was more or less 20-20 format.India went off the field when they were at 17 overs..With 5 overs remaining the two batsmen came into the field and showed their intensity to score runs.As runs came the wickets also falled.finally at the end India scored 166.By Duckworth lewis par the target for England has been given as 198 from 22 overs.

England lost three quick wickets, but Shah and flintoff made the Indians to worry.The match went so close and Shah was the first one to go.He scored brilliant 72.Next wicket was flintoff who stayed in the crease dangerously.The juicy full toss ball decieved him and threw the wicket.Samit Patel showed some entertainment but didnot last long.He was caught by Gautam Gambhir ;Gauti fumbled initially but caught it.Dhoni came to him and gave his keeper gloves to wear.It was good gesture to have fun during tensed moment.Finally England has to score 37 from 12 balls.Ishant sharma bowled the penultimate over beautifully and went for 10 runs.So it 27 from 6 deliveries.

So it was just one over for India to clinch the series and it was decided when 3 balls has been bowled.England lost 8 wickets and scored 178. Finally India won the series,leading 4-0 in the seven match series.It is a clean sweep by the Indians and Dhoni made scripted another success in his captaincy history.

Hope the Indians will try to sweep the series 7-0.The duck worth lewis was to be given the man of the match.But it was Sehwag who made the Indians to move on to decent total.

Chak de India!!

After the himalayan victory against Australia in the second test and leading the series1-0,India is in much confident mode to play against them in the Third test in Delhi.After the loss the Australians are really finding themselves to give a strong reply to India in third test.The Australian captain Ricky Ponting warned India to face their strong come back in the Kotla Test.According to Australians the war is lost but not the battle.

It is obvious that the Australians feel really hurted and their confidence level will be in low.Moreover Hayden’s out of form is a big advantage to India.In a pressmeet Hayden said that he will reply all the critics with his performance in the third test.All these statements might put some pressure on the Indians as Australians are now hurted Lions(Kangaroos) and might strike back strongly.The Indians must be wary of Australia’s strategy in the tommorrow’s game.

According to the reports,Anil Kumble is likely to play in the next match and he has declared that he is fit. On the other hand Harbahjan is injured and his inclusion in the team might be a doubt.In Australian side Stuart Clarke has got an opputunity replacing Pieter Siddle.Australia might play with a spinner tomorrow.

Indians are in a roar and tomorrow will be a strong for both the teams. Australia’s game plan might be a big one.According to the curator the Pitch might favour the pacers and early in the day there might be some good swing in the ball.

Allison unique beauty, especially her face with a well balanced features. However, its wrong to say that its her beauty that is earning her this fame. She has just worked had for it.
