  • A breather for England

    England registered their first ODI win of the series, in conditions as different from those they are used to and most comfortable in, as is humanly possible

  • Sehwag and Kaif might miss Indore clash

    Virender Sehwag blamed a collective lack of application from the Indian top-order for the five-wicket defeat against England at Jamshedpur

  • Pitching it just right

    For the first time in the series, England's bowlers got a pitch which had some pace and bounce in it, and they made excellent use of the track

  • 'Our seamers did a very good job' says Strauss

    Andrew Strauss did much right on the day, scoring 74 and leading England to their first ODI victory of the series, but was typically modest and handed the credit to his bowlers

  • Strauss stars in consolation win

    It took a testing spell from a trio of medium-pacers and a nuggety half-century from a stand-in stand-in captain to guide England to their first victory of the series
