India vs England fourth one day international is underway. This is the last chance for England to win the match and level the series and then make the last ODi look like final match of the series. If they lose the match today, the final match will lose its charm and the series will be India’s.

After having won the last two math very convincingly, Indian captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni must be dreaming to win the match and prove that merely statistics were not responsible for making India the number one ODI side. Right now India is ranked at the top in the ODI series despite losing comprehensively against Pakistan at home.

So the defeat at the hands of rampaging Pakistani team is a distant past and now India again seem to be in the winning mode. The last two wins and that too very commanding wins against a very capable English side has given India and the team members a newfound confidence. The same bowlers who were looking toothless seem to be very capable of taking wickets at crucial times and winning matches. The last match was truly won on the capabilities of the Indian bowling and nothing else.

In the meantime India won the toss and asked England to bat first. The pitch here is going to support the batsmen in the later part of the inning. But English openers seem to be playing at ease right now and have scored 38 runs so far. Oh Ishant Sharma sends back Bell to pavilion. He was supporting Cook very well till now and had scored 10 runs in 25 balls. England lose their first wicket after scoring 37 runs in around 10 overs.
