Raina guides India to thrilling victory Result: India won by 4 wickets; leads 2-0

The Indians, who were inspired by a fine unbeaten 81 from 19-year-old Suresh Raina, survived a mid-innings wobble to ease past England's target of 226 with six balls to spare. But, before then, Andrew Flintoff's side had two chances to turn the screw: first, when they were flying on 135-2, only to lose their last eight wickets for 91, and then when India were reeling on 92-5 on a slow pitch. Both times they failed. Raina, who showed maturity beyond his years, found an able ally in Mahendra Singh Dhoni (38) as the duo put on a vital 118 runs for the sixth wicket to give India a 2-0 lead in the seven-match series. Irfan Pathan hit James Anderson for a boundary to bring about a memorable Indian victory, achieved with one full over to spare.
The win, which brought the capacity 25,000 crowd on its feet, was India's 14th win on the trot while chasing which equalled the previous record of West Indies achieved between 1984 and '86.
Raina cracked eight fours and a six in his 89-ball knock while Dhoni hit two fours in his 55-ball effort as India overhauled England's total of 226 all out in 49.5 overs comfortably in the end. Declared Man of the Match, Raina justified the faith shown in him by the selectors after having failed to build on his starts in his earlier 13 one-day outings. His earlier highest one-day score was 39.

Nahar Singh Stadium, Faridabad

Situated 18 miles south-east of Delhi, the modern Nahar Singh Stadium will stage its eighth one-day international.
Kapil Dev played his final limited overs match here when West Indies, who gave Shiv Chanderpaul a debut, thrashed the hosts by a whopping 96 runs.
India have lost all but one of their five matches here, including a 2002 reverse to Zimbabwe which featured a memorable cameo from Doug Marillier.
Five times out of seven the team batting second has triumphed.
