Quite a productive over for India. 10 runs came off it including a maximum from Raina. It was a flighted delivery from Root and Raina danced down the track depositing it over long on fence for a six. The score has moved past 100 runs. Still a long way to go from India’s point of view. They haven’t been allowed to score freely by English bowlers today.
====================================================================================

====================================================================================

INDIA Overs: 21.1 II Score: 79/5 ( Raina 32*, Jadeja 0*)

INDIA Overs: 14 II Score: 56/4 ( Raina 20*, Dhoni 5*)

MS Dhoni scored his first boundary of the innings off Bresnan via a drive through point. Six runs came off the over. Indian score has moved past 56 runs. This stand between Raina and Dhoni is crucial for India if they have to recover from the early shocks.
====================================================================================

INDIA Overs: 12.2 II Score: 49/4 ( Raina 19*)

OUT! James Tredwell strikes in his first over! He has Gambhir caught by Ian Bell. Short and outside off and Gambhir cuts is.

====================================================================================

INDIA Overs: 11 II Score: 35/3 (Gambhir 24*, Raina 5*)

The last three overs have been quite edgy for India. They have scored just three runs off them and they should feel lucky as catches have been dropped or fallen short. Suresh Raina was dropped at second slip by Tredwell off Woakes. Tredwell has already taken two catches in this match.
====================================================================================

INDIA Overs: 8 II Score: 33/3 (Gambhir 23*, Raina 4*)

Right arm medium pacer Chirs Woakes introduced into the attack. His second is in the spot for Gambhir as he opens the face to drive it through covers for a boundary. His final delivery is played to backward square leg region where the ball beats the fielder to reach the fence. Nine runs off the over.
====================================================================================

INDIA Overs: 6.5 II Score: 23/3 (Gambhir 18*, Raina 0*)

OUT! Yuvraj Singh gets caught at point as India lose their third wicket. He is out for a duck. A short one from Finn and Yuvraj looks to play it to the onside. He gets a leading edge and Morgan takes a good catch at backward point. India in a spot of bother as the man-in-form Suresh Raina walks in. He has six fifties in his last 10 games. Would be a testing time for the southpaw.
====================================================================================

INDIA Overs: 6 II Score: 23/2 (Gambhir 17*, Yuvraj 0*)

Two boundaries in the over for Gautam Gambhir. Bresnan offers some width and Gambhir cuts it past point region for a boundary. Bresnan bowls it full and Gambhir drives it straight down the ground for his fourth boundary. Nine runs from the over.
====================================================================================

INDIA Overs: 5 II Score: 14/2 (Gambhir 9*, Yuvraj 0*)

====================================================================================

INDIA Overs: 3.4 II Score: 13/2 (Gambhir 8*, Yuvraj 0*)

OUT! Two in two for Bresnan! Virat Kohli has been dismissed for a duck off the first delivery! Another outswinger from Bresnan and Kohli goes after it without offering any foot movement. The ball takes the edge and Tredwell after quite a many attempts manages to hold on to it. Kohli departs for a first ball duck as India lose their second wicket. In comes Yuvraj Singh. He wouldn’t have expected to be at the crease this early.
====================================================================================

INDIA Overs: 3.3 II Score: 13/1 (Gambhir 8*)

OUT! Rohit Sharma gets caught at the slip by James Tredwell. Tim Bresnan swings one away from the right-hander and Sharma goes after it. The ball takes a thick edge off the bat and flies to the right of second slip. Tredwell grabs it with his both hands as Sharma departs for the pavilion after scoring 4 (9b, 4X1). In comes Virat Kohli.
====================================================================================

INDIA Overs: 3 II Score: 13/0 (Gambhir 8*, Sharma 4*)

Three overs and three boundaries. Gambhir gets a short one from Finn and he cuts it over point region for his second boundary. Four runs off the over.

INDIA Overs: 2 II Score: 9/0 (Gambhir 4*, Sharma 4*)

Tim Bresnan joins Steve Finn from the other end. Gets the ball to move as it sneaks past Sharma’s bat as he goes for a drive. Sharma ends the over with a beautifully executed drive through covers for a boundary. Four runs off the over.
====================================================================================

INDIA Over: 1 II Score: 5/0 (Gambhir 4*, Sharma 0*)

So, Gautam Gambhir and Rohit Sharma have walked to the middle to take guard as India bat first in this fifth and final ODI of the series. Steven Finn will start the proceedings for the English side. Finn starts with a wide. Gambhir flicks the fifth delivery through square leg for a boundary. Five runs from the over.
====================================================================================

TOSS: England have won the toss and invited India to bat first.

With the series already in their grasp, India will look to end the series on a high when they face England at Dharmasala in the fifth and final ODI on Sunday. After losing the first match, the hosts have bounced back and completely dominated the visitors sealing the series in their favour. They also are now the best ODI team as per the latest ICC rankings.
