India V/s England Fourth ODI: India eager to clinch series
India go into the fourth ODI against England at Edgbaston later today with a chance of wrapping up the series, which they lead 2-0. The Indian team in coloured clothing have resembled a different outfit, as compared to the white clothing, where they put up an embarrassing display to lose the Test series.
It may be due to the inclusion of some ODI specialists such as Suresh Raina, Ambiti Rayudu, who flew from India to England, which might have boosted team India.

The Indian team have looked very comfortable in both the ODIs, where they won the second ODI by 133 runs and by six wickets in the third ODI, with the first ODI being washed out. It has been a complete team performance by India, where their bowlers as well as the batsmen have looked good, putting up emphatic performances.

Suresh Raina played a match winning innings in the second ODI, where he scored a century, while the bowlers also backed the team well with Jadeja claiming 4 wickets and Shammi and Ashwin picking two wickets each. In the third ODI as well, Ashwin once again rose to the occasion with three wickets and all the batsmen scored well to chase down the target of just 227 runs.

So, if India continues in the same vain, it would be very difficult for the English team to contain the Indians, whose confidence might have sky-rocketed after their previous two outings. But, India should not take their opponents lightly, for they know the condition on the back of their hand and the English team are not going to let the Indians walk past the title so easily. They are sure to fight till the end.

England players have lacked consistency in the ODI series, as a result of which they are in a do or die situation, else the Indian team are eager to trounce the English team, on a similar way the English did to the Indians in the Test series.
