INDIA breaks the long losing streak

A very poor performance in England tour's, INDIA is showing sign of recovery with a great win in the first ODI against England at Hyderabad (Deccan). Now it's time for INDIA go for full and take the revenge. INDIA defeated England by 126 runs.

INDIA won the toss and elected to bat first. Start was not that good and INDIA were at 123/4 in 29th over. Then the duo of Dhoni and Raina came to rescue INDIA with a partnership of 62, Raina got out at 61 but Dhoni remain unbeaten. With help of Jadeja MS Dhoni was able to lead INDIA to a very good total of 300/7 in allotted 50 overs.

It was then the turn for the bowlers to do the damage , Praveen Kumar started with his first wicket in 3rd over of Kieswetter. There after all the England batsman didn't do well and they we were bowled out at 174. Captain Cook was highest scorer for England with 60 runs. Aswin and Jadeja shared 3 wicket each make England defeat  possible.

Both the captain were highest scorer for their team but it was Dhoni who got more and lead in front for victory. After match Dhoni says "If you're not winning games, you don't enjoy playing cricket and our losing streak was a bit too long. ", further he added " We actually played quite well during the ODIs in England and our batsmen got us the runs. But the rain there made it hard for our spinners to grip the wet ball and the seamers too were easy to score of since the ball would come on to the bat better after it rained. Tonight there was no dew and our bowlers showed that they can win us games if the conditions are in their favour."
