India finally have another win on their hands. But they've been here before and know how pear shaped it can all go from here.
On Wednesday, despite the fall of a few early wickets, India fought stubbornly through Suresh Raina’s comeback century to record a memorable 133 run-victory (D/L method) over England at the Sophia Gardens in Cardiff.
The BCCI says Ravi Shastri is the boss. MS Dhoni says Duncan Fletcher is still the boss. India's fans are wondering who will own up to the responsibility for India's dismal show and bring back the winning habit at Cardiff.
India, reinforced by the arrival of players unburdened by the Test series loss, fresh blood and now under the direction of Ravi Shastri, will aim to hit England hard in the first ODI at County Ground in Bishop.
India suffered their third heaviest defeat in Test history losing by 244 runs to England in the 5th and final Investec Test match. Joe Root was adjudged the Man of the Match for his match-winning 149* as India conceded the Test series 3-1 to England.
