India win by 133 runs and you couldn't hope to see a more complete all-round performance, really. They were in a spot of bother early, in tricky conditions, but from then on bossed the match completely. Raina was outstanding, helped by Dhoni, and they bowled and fielded with verve. England's problems against spin exposed again. A familiar tale for them and already it looks like a case of back to the drawing board. Hales, at least, played nicely on debut and Woakes had a decent match. But that's about it. Michael Vaughan and Graeme Swann said England "don't have a chance" at the World Cup. A few more might agree now. Still, there is time to turn it around. India, thought, look vibrant and confident in their blue kits. We will bring you the presentation shortly.

Partha: "Well done Ravi shastri!!"

When Eoin Morgan spoke to us a few days ago he said that he did not see spin playing a major role at the World Cup. England will be dearly hoping that is the case. This pitch turned a bit, yes, but it didn't offer masses for them. Worth saying that Tredwell bowled well, too, but India were able to score elsewhere.

Presentation time...Alastair Cook "We didn't play very well at all. Credit to Suresh and MS, they took the game away from us and we were slow to react. But it wasn't a 160-wicket. We didn't turn up in any of our departments. We have to dust ourselves down, come back and play better."

MS Dhoni "In the next three matches we'll have more support than the England team which is unusual at time. You can't play one-dimensional cricket, it's a good format to come back into form. The start is always crucial, the first 10 overs was not about the runs we scored, if we have a good stand after 30 overs we will double the score." He then talks about the "right amount of rain" to help his spinners.

Suresh Raina is Man of the Match: "The wicket was really good. I thought if I batted until 45th over we could put a target on the board. I've seen a lot of the Test matches, I was looking forward to this game. I've worked really hard on my batting and fitness."

And that just about wraps things up for today. It's been all India. They are 1-0 up with three to play. The next match is at Trent Bridge on Saturday and we'll be back to bring you all the action. But for today, from Alex and Gnasher, it's goodbye.
