Indian cricketers win again

6:16 am on 24 October 2011

Fast bowler Varun Aaron picked up three wickets on his debut as India stayed on course to whitewash England in the one-day international cricket series by cruising to a six-wicket victory in the fourth match in Mumbai.

Off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin, who went for 15 in his first over, picked up three wickets as England subsided to 220 all out in 46.1 overs after electing to bat first on a slow pitch at the Wankhede Stadium.

India knocked off the runs with 59 balls to spare, helped by fluent half-centuries from Suresh Raina (80) and Virat Kohli (86 not out).

The fifth and final one-dayer will be played at Kolkata's Eden Gardens on Tuesday.
