India won by 9 wkts | England Vs India Live Score, 4th ODI

India in England, 2002
2nd Test, Trent Bridge - Match Drawn
Virender Sehwag's 106 and Sourav Ganguly's gritty fifty fuelled India to 357. Matthew Hoggard toiled hard for 35 overs, taking 4 wickets. Towards the close of the innings, Harbhajan threw his bat around, en-route to a 37-ball 54. England launched a strong response with Michael Vaughan leading the way with a top-notch 197 though he was unlucky to be dismissed three shy of 200. Craig White(94*) engineered a late order surge to lift England past the 600-mark.
Zaheer Khan, Ashish Nehra, Ajit Agarkar were guilty of not being too penetrative. The pitch did not hold much alarms, allowing the Indian batsmen to prosper in the last innings. Rahul Dravid compiled a studious 115 while Sourav Ganguly and Sachin Tendulkar scored nineties to force the game into a draw.
Do join us back for the final ODI at Headingley on September 5. Many thanks for your company and comments. Before we take leave, help yourself to part 43 of our detailing of India-England Tests in England.
MS Dhoni's men have sealed the series with ruthless efficiency. They floundered in the Tests but their preparations for the World Cup have gained impetus. They will be keen to rout England 4-0 and sign off on a massive high. Or will England pull off a consolation victory in the final ODI to save some face?
The cherry on the cake is that this is India's first bilateral ODI series win in England since 1990.
England have now lost their last 4 bilateral ODI series at home.
This was also India's 50th ODI win against England
This is also India's 8th successive win on English soil.
MS Dhoni surpasses Mohammad Azharuddin as the most successful Indian ODI captain with 91 wins.
Quick Stats wrap:
Rahane: 'It feels special when you score a hundred and the team wins. The bowlers did well, the credit goes to the entire team. I was batting well. I got out cheaply in the first two games. I was determined today. It was great to watch Dhawan from the other end. It is a great challenge to open. When your captain tells you to open, you have to accept the challenge.'
Ajinkya Rahane is the Man of the Match for his hundred, his first in ODIs.
Dhoni: 'Our performance is getting better. I think this was a perfect game. There was a bit of help for the fast bowlers. They made the job easy for the spinners. It was a good toss to win. It was important to bowl in the right areas. I personally thought that the wicket won't turn much. The fast bowlers bowled really well. It is important for us that the openers get going. If they spend 10-12 overs and get a good start, we can slog in the death overs. We rely a lot on the openers. Shikhar was back in form. Rahane was third in line with Shikhar and Rohit opening. He has made the best out of it. He plays authentic shots, he is a good timer. I personally feel the role suits him. Rohit is also very talented and can slot into the middle-order, but as of now we won't force any changes. We have had a good time. Thanks a lot (when enquired about surpassing Azhar to become India's most successful ODI captain). The senior players guided us how to play cricket. A lot of credit goes to the seniors I have played under. The youngsters have picked up as well. It was really good playing here. Thanks for all the support.'
