India look to end England tour with success

Birmingham: The odd loss in the final ODI notwithstanding, India are expected to hold an edge as the visitors seek to bring the curtains down on what has been a mixed tour with a victory in the only T20 International against England here on Sunday.

Having suffered a 1-3 defeat in the Test series, the Indians found their bearings in the One-dayers, clinching the five-match series 3-1 despite losing yesterday’s inconsequential final game by 41 runs at Leeds.After struggling to get going in the five-day format, the inclusion of fresh legs such as Suresh Raina for the One-day Internationals gave the team the much-needed impetus.

Young batsmen such as Ajinkya Rahane, Shikhar Dhawan too fared better in the blue jersey though Virat Kohli’s woeful run of form remains a major cause for concern for the Indian think-tank.

Kohli’s run of poor scores continued in the shorter format and the batsman would be keen to at least end the tour on a decent note.

Though they flopped in the inconsequential final ODI, both Rahane and Dhawan have had good outings in the penultimate game, with the former notching up a smashing century.

Raina has been good on and off while Ambati Rayudu (53) and Jadeja (87) showed their ability with the willow on the Headingley wicket.(PTI)
