IND VS ENG 5th ODI highlights

Kolkata: Indian spinners sparked an England collapse after skipper MS Dhoni's fireworks with the bat to hand the visitors a 5-0 bashing by winning the fifth ODI by 95 runs here at the Eden Gardens on Tuesday.

After Varun Aaron broke the 129-run opening stand between Craig Kieswetter (63) and skipper Alastair Cook (60), India's spin attack of Ravindra Jadeja, R Ashwin, Suresh Raina and Manoj Tiwary took nine wickets between them to dismiss the visitors for 176. Of these, Jadeja was the most successful bowler with a spell of 4/33.

Earlier, Indian skipper Dhoni's not out effort of 75 off 69 balls carried India to a formidable total of 271/8.

Indian openers Ajinkya Rahaje and Gautam Gambhir gave their team a solid start of 80 but India were jolted by losing three wickets at the same score.

But Suresh Raina, Ravindra Jadeja and Praveen Kumar gave their skipper the support he needed to take India to a challenging total.
