Can India do it again at Lord's?

September 7, 2007

With the seven-match one-day series tantalisingly poised at 3-3, a buoyant India will seek to record a rare overseas one-day series triumph as they take on an equally determined England in the decider at Lord's in London on Saturday.

The Indians have already made the tour of England memorable by winning the Test series 1-0 after a gap of 21 years and an ODI series victory would serve as the perfect icing on the cake.

Rahul Dravid and his men have shown tremendous resilience to bounce back from a 1-3 deficit and the hallowed turf of the Lord's provides the perfect setting for an engrossing battle between the two teams.

India would seek inspiration from their famous victory at Lord's in 2002 when the young duo of Mohammad Kaif and Yuvraj Singh helped them chase a huge 326 against England in the NatWest series final.

Also, the sensational win in the last game at The Oval on Wednesday will be a huge morale-booster for India as the batsmen showed character to snatch a win from the jaws of defeat.
