Suresh Raina carried on his good form from the last match in the third One-Day International (ODI) between India and England at Trent Bridge. Raina was especially severe against Joe Root, taking him for a couple of boundaries in an over. England were severely on the back foot, as both Raina and Ambati Rayudu looked solid in the middle.

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.
