Suresh Raina was dismissed just eight runs short of what would have been a fine half-century for India in the third One-Day International (ODI) between India and England at Trent Bridge. Raina followed up his belligerent 100 in the second ODI with another positive innings that took India to the cusp of victory.

Earlier, India bowled England out for 227. It was a story of two halves: while the fast bowlers bowled, the edges evaded the fielders and England’s opening duo of Alastair Cook and Alex Hales put on a stand of 82. Then the spinners were introduced and England crashed from 82 without loss to 149 for six before a brief recovery. However, England still ended at a mediocre 227 in the end.
