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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
