A comprehensive victory for India

India won comprehensively at the first ODI against England the tourists at the Vishakha stadium Hyderabad. This is the five match ODI series between India and England. This win is special especially recent drubbing at England series by India, where Indian fails to win a single match in that tour. In this cricket ODI, Dhoni won the toss and lucky this time elected to bat first. India could have started disastrously, as Rahane could be out at slips but the buttered fingered English fielder dropped a sitter. Rahane could not capitalize the opportunity, though stayed for almost ten overs. Parthiv Patel unlucky to be run himself out at he bowler’s end while Rahane’s straight drive becomes too straight and Parthiv fell short of the ground. He could have save his wicket, if he had his bat with his natural left hand; instead he had his bat on his right side, which deletes some moments for him.

Gambhir struggles but scored a decent thirty before being fooled by a great ball to be leg before wicket, in front and plumb. Kohli most falmbuoyant, fluency, and he also scored thirties before being caught at deep by Pieterson, good jump catch. Raina played superbly and Dhoni smashed everything out of the park and Jadeja making mockery of English bowlers in the final sixteen overs where India scored a mammoth three hundred with the help of 160 runs. The smooth and power hitting by India’s lower middle order and the way the ball goes out of the park has been a delight to see and watch. It seems Dhoni who scored smash buckling 87 and a great partner ship with Raina and then with Jadeja , just hit out the yorkers out of the park effortlessly.


England started disasterouysly, their wicket keeper opening batter cuaght behind to DHoni of Praveen Kumar and then their captain Cook survives for a good ball to ball fifty before being taken by jadeja caught at deep and then the flurry of wickets and both the spinner Jadeja and Aswhin making mockery of English batters and they fell like the ten pins. Ashwin’s carom ball has no answer for English batters and jadeja ‘s left arms spin simply unplayable and their bowling backed by some superbly fielding display fro the young legs like Rahane, substitute Manoj Tiwari,Raina,Gambhir,

Kohli and so on. Towards the end of the England innings the pace Yadav , which averages almost 142 kms per hour a delight to see Indian pacers for a change taken two wickets straight cleaned bowled and that proves he is back in the big league. Nopw the tunr of Aron as he is waiting in the fences and with Vinay Kumar wasting every opportunities he is getting, this is clear the Aron the speedster will soon be in Indian team.
