Want to beat Indians, bounce the ball. Forget regular fast bowlers James Anderson, Stuart Broad and Ryan Sidebottom, even Luke Wright (a medium pacer) bowled with full run up today and pitched rarely anything up. Indian batsmen had few clues how to play balls that are coming above their waist high. Yuvraj Singh looked in good touch, hit two sixes but James Foster did proved his selection as wicket keeper with an ultra quick stumping. chasing a par score of 153, Indian batting fell short by 3 runs.
Earlier, England did well to reach 153 after good bowling spells from Harbhajan Singh and Ravindra Jadeja. Dimitri Mascarenhas was sent up the order as pinch hitter but he made less than run a ball and wasn't dismissed till the end!
What next : With India tour of tournament, England play West Indies inside 24 hours to decide who progresses to semi-finals.
