Blasted for lackluster performance in the Test series against England, India bounced back with vengeance in the second ODI - scripting a dominant 133-run win on Wednesday. This was the team's second-largest margin of win against Alastair Cook's team - second only to the 158-run triumph in Rajkot on November 14, 2008.

India's triumph at Sophia Gardens was highlighted by a century from Suresh Raina - his first since 2010, and Ravindra Jadeja who claimed four for 28. Even skipper Mehandra Singh Dhoni scored 52 to help India post 304 - their third total in excess of 300 at this venue, before bowling England out for 166. The win was the team's biggest against England in England obliterating the 63-run win at Birmingham on May 29, 1999.

All-round cricket brought a lot of cheer to Indian fans even as England conceded their first ODI match at this venue. The team had previously won four ODIs here.
