Commentary

END OF OVER:
39 | 7 Runs 1 Wkt | ENG: 242/8

  • RR Powar7-0-45-2

The rain has now become really severe and the umpires call a halt to proceedings.

The players troop off and India won't mind this at all. They're well ahead as far as the Duckworth-Lewis charts are concerned. Remember this game was already shortened once with England needing to score 311 from 45 overs.

And news has just come in that India have won this game against England. The umpires have called the game off, with the rain still coming down and no chance of a resumption. The official result is that India have won by 38 runs by the Duckworth-Lewis method.

This means that the series is still alive with England leading 3-2 going into the last two matches.

This is Anand Vasu, your commentator, signing off for the day. Do join us on Wednesday, September 5, for the next game. Till then, it's goodbye from the commentary team.

Agarkar to Lewis, OUT, Another! And Dhoni equals a record for maximum dismissals. Lewis tries one of those across-the-line heaves but can only get a top edge. The ball goes very high in the air and swirls around for an eternity in the strong Leeds winds. Dhoni calls for the catch and appears to get under it. In the end, though, the ball is evading him and he needs to dive to take the catch. He's held on, though, and that's now six dismissals for him in the innings
