India won a thriller with a superb performance. England won the toss and batted well and set a target of 299. Trot scored a brilliant 98. India in return started superbly. Opening partnership was good in this match. Indian young opener rahane complemented trots innings with a marvelous 91. Gambir virat all contributed. Dhoni and jadeja in the end handled the pressure and built a good partnership for 6th wicket. In the end india won the challenge posted by england. India fought well and gained the deserved victory. 3rd odi win also gave the series victory. Altogether a superb thrilling encounter.

It was a superb match , both teams played well .india won the match with 4 balls to spare.it was very tight and pressure full match. Rahane played brilliantly . No one scored a 100. Trott played well and scored 98, rahane also missed the century getting out at 91. It was a good odi match where both teams played well.

Hey, that's a great news... I hope, they'll win the series by 5-0.. Playing without the key players, they seem to have accomplished a great task... Greater one remains though... Good Luck Men In Blue!!!

Another fantastic performance by Team India. Chasing 299 is not an easy task, but the way they went about it very professionally was very good. What was even better was our openers finally contributed. Rahane played a fantastic knock and was unlucky to miss out on a maiden century. Finaly Captain Cool and Jadeja ensured that their partnership knocked the remaining runs with 4 balls to spare. With this India win the series 3-0 and the whitewash is still on!! Cheers! Ram

Chasing a huge score need contribution from every one. Here evert one played well to win the match. He opening partnership was not good then chasing this target would not have possible.rahane played at the needed time and got the man of the match. Towards the end finni and jadeja played sensibly and won the match.ya surely white wash is still on...

Agreed it was really a good chase. There were moments in the match when I thought we will lose. But our batsmen kept fighting and coming back. In the end it was a comfortable victory. Cheers! Ram

Now INDIA had taken the revenge from the england by defeating them by one handily. They had won the all three macth in the series and they won in a good way, there was no any moment that england were on high and it all INDIAN who make the count and prove that they are more what England think of them. It was just a bad seriese nothing else in england now INDIA is back and they will not let england take anything from here. Only formality is now left with 2 matches to go and hope they will be won by INDIA too.Rahane did bat well and so did dhoni at last well done team INDIA you can do this.

It was a superb effort from team India to win the match and series at Mohali, a wicket more suitable for the English pace attack. It was once again the key innings from the skipper Dhoni who along with Jadeja scored at more than 10 runs an over to romp home with four balls to spare. Earlier in the day England achieved the best score of the series through a gritty innings from Jonathan Trott who finished unbeaten on 98 of 116 balls and a swashbuckling innings from Samit Patel who scored 70 of just 43 balls. India's reply was more determined with the opening pair of Parthiv Patel and Ajinkya Rahane showing a great determination in giving India a solid start. The opening partnership of 79 runs was cut short through a controversial umpiring decision. Rahane went on to score 91 of 104 balls, his best effort sofar. India still needed more than ten runs an over in final overs with England showing superb fight back in middle overs but the asking rate was easily achieved by Dhoni and Jadeja. Requiring 7 runs of the final over, Dhoni belting Bresnan for 2 consecutive fours of the first 2 balls and finished the match with ease looking good enough to score another dozen of the same over.
