Cricket: India Thrash England 5-0 Completes Revenge!

Team India avenged their nightmare in England two months back right royally at the magnificent Eden Gardens, Kolkata. They bowled out England for a paltry 176 in just 37 overs to win by 95 runs. Another big win for Team India to make a clean sweep of the five-match one-day international cricket series.

England won the toss again and for a change elected to field first. Soon, India got into a corner at 123 for 4, but skipper Dhoni and Jadeja played brilliantly to rescue the innings and led the way for a challenging score of 271. Dhoni remained unbeaten on 75 with four huge sixes and in fact, he never got out in the entire series. A captain leading from the front with a whole lot of newcomers deservedly got the Man of the Series award.

Chasing 272 England were going very strong till the spinners duo Jadeja and Ashwin began to strike. With 4 wickets for 33 and a crucial innings with the bat too Jadeja got the Man of the Match award.

 The players that came out of the Series with flying colors are Ajinkay Rahane who kept on with his consistency from the English tour, Virat Kohli who is becoming a tremendous asset for Team India, Ravindra Jadeja, Ashwin, Pravin Kumar, Aaron and Vinay Kumar. Parthiv Patil also played well, but with Sehwag getting fit he is not in with a chance.

Team India proved its supremacy in one-day cricket once again. England did not look the team that swept Indian resistance away in the away tour. 

Well done, Mahendra Singh Dhoni and Team India!
