Steven Finn and James Anderson wreaked havoc to destroy the “strong” Indian batting line-up and bowl them out for a paltry 153 in 39.3 overs in the third match of the tri-series. Both England and India had lost to Australia in their opening matches. This match is crucial for both teams. It may go England’s way now.
Earlier, India won the toss and elected to bat first. Rohit Sharma, who scored 138 in the first match against Australia, did not play due to an hamstring injury. No Indian batsmen showed any resolve and determination. Poor selection of shots was the main reason why many batsmen fell.
Steven Finn took the first five-wicket haul of his ODI four wickets. For India, Stuart Binny (44), Rahane (33), Rayudu (23) and Dhoni (34) were the top scorers.
