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

Powar to Blackwell, (no ball) SIX runs, tossed up outside the off stump, Blackwell picks it up early and lofts it over long on fence, overstepping by the bowler and England wins by 5 wickets.

England done it in style and win the match comprehensively. They are one up of 7 ODI series with one more game to play. Jamshedpur is once again become the non favourable venue for India and their winning percentace is very low here. Andrew Strauss came up with valint knock of 74 runs before he retired and gave the perfect start for England to chase a modest target. Then Kevin Pieterson and Paul Collingwood played a little cameo innings and make sure the required run rate comes below 4. Indian spinners manages to take the wickets and nothing left for the pacers. Andrews Strauss declared Man of the match for his fine innings. Please don't forgot to join with us for the last and 7th ODI between this teams. Till then bye from us.

VRV Singh to Blackwell, no run, good line and length, Blackwell defends, fielded by Harbhajan Singh
  • 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

  • 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

  • '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
