Indians clinch victory in their tour game against Derbyshire chasing down the total of 143. They had started the session at 50 for 1 with Murali Vijay and Ajinkya Rahane on the crease. Murali Vijay, who was dismissed for six in the first innings put up a better show for his 41, before retiring out.

The only other batsman who looked to hit some kind of form was Ajinkya Rahane, as Wriddhiman Saha, Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan failed to get big scores. Greg Cork, son of England fast bowler Dominic Cork took his first wicket of the match as he dismissed Wriddhiman Saha.

Stuart Binny strengthened his case for a call-up to the starting XI with impressive performances with the bat and the ball in the match. Ishant Sharma, who will be spear heading the Indian bowling attack went wicket less in both innings.

Despite the win, the Indian bowling did not look good and none of the bowlers impressed. Indians will need to address this issue before the start of the test series which starts on July 9th.

Brief scores:

Derbyshire 326 for 5 decl. (Ben Slater 54, Billy Godleman 67*, Wes Durston 95, Harvey Hosein 53; Ravindra Jadeja 2 for 27)  & 156 for 3 decl. (Billy Godleman 56*; Bhuvneshwar Kumar 1 for 5) lost to Indians 341 for 7 decl. (Cheteshwar Pujara 81, Stuart Binny 81*; Ben Cotton 2 for 25, David Wainwright 2 for 76) & 143 for 5 (Murali Vijay 41; David Wainwright 1 for 21) by 5 wickets.
