ICC Cricket World Cup 2011: India v/s England match played on 27 February 2011 at Bangalore, India


India won the toss and elected to bat first.  India scored a mammoth total of 338 runs. They were all out at 49.5 overs. Tendulkar scored 120 and became the highest centurion in world cup ODIs with 5 tons. The run-score of other main players was Sehwag 35, Gambhir 51, Yuvraj 58, Dhoni 31, Pathan 14.

In reply to India’s huge total of 338 England batted quite aggressively against the subdued Indian fielding. They scored 338/8 in 50 overs with the main contribution of Strauss with his 158 runs scored out of authoritative smashing the Indian bowling and breaking their defense.  The other main scorers were Bell 69, Pitersen 31 and Trott 16. Nevertheless, Bell was given a new life out of a controversial decision by the umpires declaring him ‘not out’ even after counter checking by the 3rd umpire. Indians appealed aloud for giving Bell LBW but were demoralized when their appeal was overruled by the umpires. 


Indian fielding was disappointing as the players had gloomy faces and not so very quick reflexes in their movements on the field. The bowling was also ineffective that resulted in a draw in spite of a huge total of 338. 


Nevertheless, thanks to the modern system of calculating NRR that India is still figuring at the top of the Group- B score card. India has earned 3 points with NRR of 0.870 and kept itself ahead of England who has earned 3 points with NRR of 0.126 at the end of the India v/s England world cup matched played on 27 February 2011 in the score chart.
