Rohit Sharma returns to form to help India seal ODI series

Rohit Sharma Indian Batsman

This match was supposed to be the decider about who wins the series or if the final fifth match will decide the fate of the series.After a good victory in the last match the Indians had a bit of a change in this match as they included Rohit Sharma instead of Ajinkya Rahane who was having a poor run.To everyone's surprise Rohit Sharma opened the innings and i must say he did total justice to his talent today.He ripped apart the England bowling attack to the lay the foundation for the middle order batsman and Suresh Raina finished it off perfectly making 89 runs and remaining at the crease until the end.

Highlights of the match:

India Bowling & Batting:

Ravindra Jadeja - Bowling - 3 Wickets for 39 Runs

Rohit Sharma - Batting - 83(93)

Suresh Raina - Batting - 89(79)*
