bowlers strike as england stumpled to 155

The bowlers delivered as england once again stumpled to 155 all-out.The bowling attack of the indian team which was crictisised ineffective proved it wrong here on ranchi.The local boy dhoni won the toss and elected to field first,the young bowlers bowled brillianty to provide athe stage for the collapse which awaited later on.Captain cook was trapped leg before going too far across to dead straight delivery fron shami ahmed.Pietersen along with bell were building a parntership but pietersen didnt last long as he was snatched up by dhoni,which was also a lucky breakthrough as the replays suggested that the sound which was heard was due to the bat hitting the pad.Dhoni again came into play when he took a brilliant close in catch of bell of bhuvaneshwar.England were in a spot of bother as the visitors stumpled to 63 for 3,morgan gave some promise,an off drive of ishant sharma was an absolute beauty,but he didnt last long as he perished trying to reverse sweep a back of a length delivery from aswin,it also ignited a collapse.Jadeja who was brought into the attack hounded kiesweter and patel back to the dressing room in the same over.The next man bresanan and joe root rotaed the stike and build a recovery parntership until he was the 3rd catch of dhoni of ishant,root persished trying to accelerate.The batting powerplay became acompete disater as bresnan also went back to the dressing room of a lethal aswin delivery which spun a lon way into bresan to rattle the woodwork.Finn became the first snatch of the parttimer raina tryinf to slog-sweep was caught by yuvraj.The last man dernbatch bacame the 3rd scalp of jadeja,the best way to get awicket BOWLED and the english stumpled to 155


The wicket was expected to produce a lot of runs, but the bowlers kept things tight and never let the batsmen run away with the advantage. They picked wickets at regular intervals, Jadeja produced a few brilliant deliveries and was well supported by Ashwin too. Joe Root was the only flash in the pan for England, he looked steady until he fell for a false shot. 155 should not be such a pain to chase down. But the indians must not be complecent and underestimate the english attack which is more than capable of dismissing india below 150.The must look positive and not pressurise themselves and play freely if they do that they can run away with the game and lead the series 2-1.THE local boy dhoni also played his part by taking 3 catches
