Commentary

END OF OVER:
22 | 7 Runs 2 Wkts | ENG: 178/8

  • SCJ Broad0 (1b)
  • MJ Prior0 (0b)
  • MM Patel4-1-22-2
  • I Sharma5-0-41-2

Fourth win for the home side, which means they have taken an unassailable series lead at 4-0. England again outclassed by India. The rain interrupted play and eventually forced a 22-overs-a-side match. India blasted themselves to to 166 for 4, then the D/L method left England 198 to get. They only got 178.

Dhoni leads the celebrations on the verge of midnight in Bangalore. Another impressive series win for his team. In 2008, they've won the CB Series, beaten Sri Lanka 3-2, and now England. The only blips were the Kitply and Asia Cup finals. We'll have the post match presentation for you shortly.

Pietersen says its "not nice" to lose 4-0. He credits India for playing hard cricket as well as Shah for his batting, and says England were undone by Sehwag. Pietersen isn't sure what England are going to do in the coming three matches.

Dhoni credits the bowlers for doing so well in slippery conditions. He says Zaheer has been a big help all series. Wants to win all the coming matches.

Sehwag is the Man of the Match. He gets a fat cheque, trophy and a Hero Honda CVZ. Not too shabby. Sehwag enjoyed batting on this track. Says he knew what was coming his way. "If I see the ball, I try and hit it." Wah. Simple mantra.

That's all we have for you tonight. The next game is at Cuttack on November 26 at 14:30 local, 09:00 GMT. Thanks for joining us. On behalf of Binoy George, this is Jamie Alter signing off. Good bye and good luck!

Patel to Broad, no run, swing and a miss, and thats the end of that, India win by 19 runs!

This has been one-way traffic since Shah departed. Broad is in. Four slips and a gully.

Patel to Collingwood, OUT, ho hum, Collingwood swings straight to Tendulkar at midwicket

Matt Prior comes out. England need 20 from two balls.

Patel to Collingwood, OUT, easy as pie, Collingwood pushes a very full ball back to Munaf, Swann takes off and makes for the other end, Collingwood doesn't even react, Munaf collects and effects the easiest run out of his career with both batsmen saying hello to each other at one end

Patel to Swann, 1 bye, moves away, skips down, swings and misses, Dhoni fumbles

Patel to Collingwood, 1 run, heaves it to midwicket and bolts off, Tendulkar throws it back to Munaf, who is slow to break the bails and Collingwood is home safe with a big dive

That makes it 22 from five balls ... fine leg and deep square leg go back ...

Patel to Collingwood, FOUR runs, another loose ball, a big full toss down leg stump, Collingwood shuffles and heaves it through short fine leg and picks the gap ... Munaf is mortified!

Okay, make it 26 from six balls.
