Who’d have thought that a seven match ODI series between these two teams would go down to the wire?
I booked this one mostly because Janie was at that time expressing a preference for ODIs and it seemed a rare opportunity to take in some late season cricket at Lord’s.
Still a bit numb from all that had happened this summer, my recall of this match is not great.
Judging from the scorecard, it looks as though India finally ran out of steam at the end of a long tour. Lord’s tends to get lower and slower by the end of the season. Perhaps the Indian batsmen set off trying to score far more than would be possible. Perhaps England bowled well.
No perhaps about our picnic – it would have been a good one.
