England v India, ODI, Lord's, 11/09/11

Our annual trip to Lord's this year was to catch the ODI between England and India, which ended in a part dramatic / part farcical Duckworth Lewis tie.

With thanks to London Underground, we had a walk from Baker Street on Sunday morning, not what you want with a 10.15 start.

India's innings faltered until a blistering stand from Dhoni and Raina ensured that they posted a respectable 280 which delighted the travelling hoardes from, err, Southall and Ealing.

But, as with other games in the series, India's bowling was weak and England chipped away at the target until rain brought a premature end with the scores level on the DL method. Ravi Bopara scored an excellent 96.
