India spin to win

India's spinners again proved England's undoing as the tourists won the third one-day international at Trent Bridge on Saturday by six wickets to take a 2-0 lead in the five-match series. World champions India, chasing a modest 228 for victory, cruised to 228 for four with seven overs to spare. Ambati Rayudu, only playing because of Rohit Sharma's tour-ending finger injury, was an ODI-best 64 not out. Together with Suresh Raina, who followed up his 100 in India's equally dominant 133-run victory in Cardiff on Wednesday with a run-a-ball 42, Rayudu put on 87 for the fourth wicket. But it was the first innings that decided the course of the match, with England...
