Team India finish’s first ODI in Style

A Team India finally broke their prolonged losing streak as they trounced England by 127 runs in a lop-sided first cricket one-dayer here on Friday.

India rode on Dhoni’s blistering 87-run knock and Suresh Raina’s 55-ball 61 to post a mammoth 300 for seven and then skittled out the visitors for only 174 runs in 36.1 overs Rajiv Gandhi International stadium to take a 1-0 lead in the five-match series.

This was India’s first victory after a losing streak of 10 international matches that includes five ODIs (last two ODIs in West Indies), four Tests and one T20 international.

The wicket got slower with passage of time and India’s newest spin-twins Ravichandran Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja tightened the noose on England batsmen sharing six wickets between them.

The margin of victory should come as whiff of fresh air for Dhoni and Co who would now certainly feel upbeat with four ODIs remaining.
