India-England Lions Match Ends In A Tame Draw

England Lions proved that India's impotent bowling attack has neither the zing nor the sting as the three-day warm up cricket match between them petered out into a drab draw in Chelmsford on Sunday.
Chasing an improbable 258 runs in the last hour, India reached 91 for one in their second innings. At draw of stumps on the final day, Wasim Jaffer was not out on 22 while Yuvraj Singh was batting on six. Dinesh Kaarthick (51) was the lone Indian wicket to fall after he had scored a scintillating half-century off just 45 balls stroking eight boundaries. He fell to leg spinner Adil Rashid as he charged down to play a shot but hit it straight to Ravi Bopara at short covers.
The hosts had declared their first innings at 413 for eight and it took a magnificent 171-run knock by stop-gap skipper Sachin Tendulkar Sachin Tendulkar's Site, which propped up the visitors' response as India posted 383.

Tendulkar delights chelmsford with a masterly 171

A standout innings of 171 off 236 balls from Indias batting maestro Sachin Tendulkar Sachin Tendulkar's Site reached his team to 336-7,within 77 runs short off England Lions 413-8 decl, on the second day of the three-day tour match at Chelmsford on Saturday.
India, who got off to a very shaky start to their innings losing 3-14, were steadied by Tendulkar and Yuvraj Singh (59), who put on 140 for the fifth wicket after VVS Laxman (0) and Sourav Ganguly (14) had departed cheaply. India opener Wasim Jaffer once again failed for the third time in two tour outings and was out for a single digit score.
But the day belonged to Tendulkar, who completed a superb century just after tea to stamp in his first innings on England tour this summer. Graham Onions struck twice in his first over to reduce India to 14-3 but the Tendulkar-Singh partnership rescued India out of trouble.
The batting great was finally out to Onions, caught by Shah for his 63rd first class century. At stumps, M S Dhoni,the dashing wicketkeeper,was unbeaten on 44 while paceman Zaheer Khan remained not out on 18 as India ended the day on 336-7.

England Lions expose Indian attack

A toothless Indian bowling attack stood thoroughly exposed as England Lions, riding on a sparkling unbeaten century by all-rounder Tim Bresnan and crisp half centuries from Joe Denly and Stuart Broad, rattled up 379 for eight on the opening day of the three-day tie at Chelmsford on Friday.
At stumps, Bresnan was not out 116 with Chris Tremlett (8) giving him company. Bresnan's 116-run knock included 15 fours and one six during his 156-ball stay.
Coming in to bat with the hosts precariously placed at 185 for six, the 22-year old Bresnan displayed a cool head before opening out to play some fine shots all round the wicket. He batted with just the right mix of caution and aggression to feature in a thrilling eighth wicket stand of 129 runs with Broad (50) that steered his team to safety.
