India celebrated their 700th Limited-Overs International with a 19-run win - their 20th against England in India in 33 games (lost 13). India recorded their fourth series win under Mahindra Singh Dhoni's leadership - against Pakistan in 2007-08, Commonwealth Bank series against Australia, against Sri Lanka in 2008 and against England in 2008-09. India have now won four series against England - their previous three bilateral series wins were in India in 1981-82, in England in 1990 and in India in 2005-06 Gautam Gambhir (40) has extended his record for most runs in ODIs this year to 1119 at an average of 46.62, including three hundreds and seven fifties, in 27 matches. Yuvraj's tally of 319 (ave.159.50) is his second best in terms of run-aggregate, next only to his aggregate of 344 at an average of 172.00 in five-ODI series against Pakistan in Pakistan in 2005-06. James Anderson is without a wicket in the first four games of the series, conceding 158 runs (economy rate 6.32). Owais Shah's 8th fifty is his second against India. Shah's 72 off 48 balls is his third best score in ODIs, next only to his 107 not out off 95 balls against India at The Oval last year (Sept 5) and 82 against Sri Lanka at Dambulla on October 4, 2007. Shah is the leading run-getter for England in the series -170 runs at an average of 42.50, including two fifties. Despite his 41 off 30 balls today, Flintoff's batting record against India in India is below average - 334 in 15 innings at an average of 22.26 with just one fifty (S Rate: 87.43). The 82-run fourth wicket partnership between Shah and Flintoff is England's best for any wicket at Bangalore, eclipsing the 70 between Graeme Fowler and David Gower for the third wicket on January 20, 1985.
