Cricket news for monday

Shah shines after monsoon but India mop up series

This is a headline from the guardian.. and heres the rest of it... enjoy

The first depression over Bangalore was caused by the north-east monsoon; the second by Owais Shah. But both proved short-lived as neither the rain nor the defiant hitting of Shah that followed it was enough to save England. India took an unassailable 4-0 lead in the seven-match series to take the Hero Honda Cup. England were just left with that familiar sinking feeling.

India will fly to Bhubaneswar today for the first of three dead rubbers talking of experimentation. England will head north fearing a whitewash. A rain-affected finale under the lights at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium here offered them an escape clause but only Shah, with 72 from 48 balls, looked likely to accept it.

"India have played some fantastic cricket," said England's captain, Kevin Pietersen. "But we have to keep the series competitive. We are being paid to win games of cricket. We need to get our heads up."

have a nice monday
