IND v ENG, 2nd Test, Mohali, Day 5: India take series after dull draw (IND 1:0)

India clinched the two-Test cricket series against England on Tuesday after Gautam Gambhir and Yuvraj Singh batted the visitors out of the contest on the last day of the second match.
Indian skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni belatedly declared at 251 for seven when Gambhir was dismissed for 97, leaving England an almost impossible target of 403 in less than two sessions. Gambhir fell three runs short of becoming only the fourth Indian batsman to score centuries in both innings.
England, which lost the opening match by six wickets at Chennai, made 64-1 as the game meandered to a draw.
Opener Alastair Cook (10) was the only Englishman out in the second innings, edging Ishant Sharma to V.V.S Laxman at slip. Andrew Strauss remained unbeaten on 21 and Ian Bell was not out 24 at stumps.

IND v ENG, 1st Test, Chennai, Day 5: Tendulkar guides India to record breaking win (IND 1:0)

Batting great Sachin Tendulkar hit an unbeaten 103 as India achieved the fourth-highest run chase in history to stun England by six wickets in the first Test at Chennai on Monday.

The hosts surpassed the seemingly improbable victory target of 387 on a wearing wicket with 20.3 overs to spare on the fifth and final day to take a 1-0 lead in the two-match series. Tendulkar, 35, swept off-spinner Graeme Swann to fine-leg for the winning boundary that also brought up his 41st Test century amid loud cheers from 30,000 home fans at the Chidambaram stadium.
Left-hander Yuvraj Singh chipped in with 85 not out in a fifth-wicket stand of 163 with Tendulkar to dash England's hopes after Kevin Pietersen's men dominated a major part of the match with both bat and ball.

English cricketers return to India amid tight security for Test series

England's players were met by armed police and a flurry of activity outside Chennai airport when they landed to resume their tour of India on Monday.
More than a week after halting their seven-week tour in the aftermath of the terrorist attacks in Mumbai, England's players returned to the sub-continent in readiness for the two-Test series due to start on Thursday.
They were met by around 1,000 fanatical cricket fans and were surrounded by armed police almost as soon as they stepped off flight EY268 from Abu Dhabi, where they had spent the last few days at a training camp considering whether to continue the tour. Led by captain Kevin Pietersen, they marched through and onto a team bus before being driven to their hotel in Chennai.
Their arrival caused a ripple of excitement outside the airport with fans jostling to find a position to take pictures before they were quickly driven away. The fuss and excitement continued at the hotel when the players were presented with a garland of flowers and marked with a Tika, the traditional Hindu red spot placed on the forehead which signifies health and prosperity.
Their arrival follows a week of intense discussions between the players, the England and Wales Cricket Board and the Professional Cricketers' Association. England returned home a week last Saturday and, after days of discussions, agreed to go to a training camp in Abu Dhabi to consider a report from security consultant Reg Dickason.
That report was delivered to the players on Sunday, who agreed to travel on to India and continue with a tour many thought would never resume.

ECB confirms England will go ahead Test series against India

The England cricket team tonight decided to return to India for the two-match Test series after getting the final go-ahead from security experts, ending the undertainty on the fate of the series which had come under a cloud following the terror attacks in Mumbai.
England and Wales Cricket Board's security adviser Reg Dickason's much-awaited report has found India to be safe, paving the decks for the resumption of cricketing activities which had been interrupted in the wake of the Mumbai carnage. The England players, who are currently camping here to prepare for the series, were given a detailed feedback on the security arrangements that would be put in place for the series, scheduled to begin in Chennai from December 11.
The players were then given some time to make up their minds on whether to travel to India. "England will resume their tour of India and take a full-strength squad," an ECB satement said tonight.
"The players were briefed on the latest security update in Abu Dhabi today before confirming they would return to India and complete the tour which was halted following the terror attacks in Mumbai," the statement added. Dickason has already inspected the stadium and hotel in Chennai, the venue of the first Test, and had detailed discussions on the security arrangements with BCCI and police officials.

Yuvraj Singh recalled into Test squad, RP Singh dropped

Dashing middle order batsman Yuvraj Singh was today recalled while left arm spinner Pragyan Ojha was also named in India's 15-member Test squad for the two-match series against England beginning next week.
Yuvraj, who had been in sizzling form in the recent ODI series against England, forced his way back into Test reckoning following Sourav Ganguly's retirement from international cricket.
Hyderabad spinner Ojha has been rewarded with a berth in the Test team, filling up the spot left vacant by former Test captain Anil Kumble who has also bid farewell to the game. Paceman R P Singh has been dropped.
Tamil Nadu opener Murali Vijay, who made his debut against Australia in the last Test in Nagpur, has been retained in the squad which has eight specialist batsmen, three pacers, three spinners and one wicket-keeper batsman in captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni. Another Tamil Nadu batsman S Badrinath has also been named in the squad which otherwise has no surprise inclusions.
India test team: Mahendra Singh Dhoni (Captain), Virender Sehwag (vice-captain), Gautam Gambhir, Rahul Dravid, Sachin Tendulkar, VVS Laxman, Yuvraj Singh, Amit Mishra, Harbhajan Singh, Zaheer Khan, Ishant Sharma, S Badrinath, Munaf Patel, Murali Vijay, Pragyan Ojha.

England cricket team to resume tour of India in wake of attacks

England cricketers will resume their tour of India for the Test series - if strengthened security recommendations are implemented - team officials said Wednesday.
The England squad returned home last weekend after scrapping the last two limited-overs internationals of the seven-match series in the wake of deadly terrorists attacks in Mumbai. The England and Wales Cricket Board came to the decision after days of talks with security experts and government officials .
The team will fly to India early next week from Abu Dhabi, where it is due to fly Thursday. While England is practising in the UAE, key officials will join security adviser Reg Dickason, who is currently in India, to ensure that the additional security arrangements in Chennai and Mohali, where the Tests will now be played, have been implemented. Hugh Morris, managing director of England Cricket, and Sean Morris, chief executive of the Professional Cricketers' Association, will go to India at the weekend and then return to Abu Dhabi to reassure the team.

England set to resume tour of India under increased security

England look set to accept tightened security arrangements and resume their tour of India following the terrorist attacks on Mumbai last week.
The England and Wales Cricket Board were locked in a second day of talks surrounding the future of the tour, which was put in doubt by the team's return on Saturday to reassess the situation following the campaign of terror on Mumbai's leading landmarks.
England held further discussions with the Foreign and Commonwealth Office and their final decision may not be made for another couple of days while they await an up-to-date security report from consultant Reg Dickason.
Between now and then, England are considering travelling to Abu Dhabi to set up a base camp and train there before continuing their journey to Chennai – providing Dickason's report is happy with the increased security measures.

Chennai, Mohali to host Tests

The two-match Test series between India and England has been rescheduled and would be played at Chennai (December 11-15) and Mohali (December 19-23), the Cricket Board announced.
BCCI Secretary N Srinivasan said in a media release that England have agreed to resume their tour of India that was halted after the first five ODIs were completed following the terror attack in Mumbai.
However, the final word on the tour would be given only after the England and Wales Cricket Board send their security consultant for discussions with the authorities in India.
England were originally scheduled to play the Test matches at Ahmedabad and Mumbai on the same dates before the Mumbai terror attack.

England set to return to India for Tests on Dec 3

England’s cricket tour of India resumed again when it was confirmed on Monday morning that the squad would come back to play the remaining Tests. The team would return on 3rd December after the security arrangements were found satisfactory by the ECB.
The schedule of venues would be changed due to revised security guidelines. The first Test would be held in Mohali instead of Ahmedabad while the venue of the second Test would be shifted from Mumbai to Chennai.
The first Test would commence on 11th December as the England team would get their practise match in Mohali on December 5.
Earlier, the last two ODI matches were scrapped due to the terrorist attacks in Mumbai that left over 150 people dead and many more injured.

ODI matches postponed after attacks

The remaining two matches in England's one-day international series in India have been postponed following the terrorist attacks in Mumbai.
The England and Wales Cricket Board requested the matches in Guwahati and Delhi be called off and the Board of Control for Cricket in India gave their consent.
It remains to be seen whether the two-Test series is also abandoned with ECB and BCCI officials due to discuss the matter over the next 24 hours.
Hugh Morris, the ECB's managing director of England cricket, said: "On behalf of the Board and the England team, we would like to express our condolences to the families and friends of those people who were killed or injured in Wednesday night's attacks.
