Cuttack, Jan. 22: 
ENGLAND 250/7 (50 ovs)
INDIA 234 (48.4 ovs)
MoM: Collingwood

As Darren Gough stood there at the centre of the pitch, arms raised in the air in jubilation, teammates gathered around him. It was a moment of personal triumph for the Yorkshire allrounder who had withstood the initial onslaught to strike it rich when it mattered.

The Englishmen were not one bit bothered by the alien conditions. The defeat in the series opener in Calcutta, where they surrendered meekly from a comfortable position, seemed to have actually served as an eye-opener for this young side. It was finally determination and application that saw them level the series at the Barabati Stadium today.

The Indians faltered at crucial stages of the game. The chase was not-too-tough under the circumstances, but once Sourav Ganguly left early and Sachin Tendulkar fell victim to an unfortunate run-out, the inexperience of the middle-order came to the fore.

The whirlwind efforts of Ajit Agarkar and Ajay Ratra in the later stages were not enough to see India through, and this 16-run victory will put the visitors in good stead in the remaining four games.

The start had never signalled the disastrous end. Sourav got his feet moving while Sachin looked to be on song during their 19-minute association. Two superbly square driven boundaries off consecutive balls in the opening over from Gough and a neatly executed flick to the square leg fence in the next over from Matthew Hoggard showed the Indian skipper in good touch.

In Hoggard’s next over Sourav fell victim in a manner that is gradually turning out to be his nemesis. He hung his bat out to one that pitched on the off stump and was leaving him. Nick Knight at second slip held on to a regulation chance.

Sachin tried to keep his cool as he cover-drove Gough and then followed it up with a straight drive.

Along with Dinesh Mongia (49 off 81 balls, 4x4) he was keeping them under pressure. Both made optimum use of the let-offs, Marcus Trescothick doing the needful at first slip on both occasions. They added 79 for the second wicket before Sachin (45 off 59 balls, 6x4) paid the penalty for backing up too far down the crease. Mongia’s straight drive took Ben Hollioake’s — the only change in the side coming in place of Ashley Giles — palms on way to hitting the stumps at the non-striker’s end.

This was the only partnership of substance in the Indian innings. England had at least three and that helped a long way in deciding the course of the game. Mongia and Vangipurappu Laxman’s run outs further complicated things.

It was over and done away with once Mongia and Badani left.

Once Ratra and Agarkar tried to make things tough, Gough returned to take three vital scalps, Anil Kumble turning out to be his 150th victim.

Overnight dew had left the pitch and outfield damp causing a delayed start and that prompted Sourav to field on winning the toss. The bowlers used the slightly overcast conditions effectively in the initial stages but as it dried out they got very little assistance from this slow wicket.

Jawagal Srinath, however, made sure his 200th ODI remained etched in his memory. His yorkers were bang on target in the slog overs and the slower deliveries had the batsmen guessing. His three-over last spell yielded only 13 runs and it was only through him that the visitors were restricted at 250.

Some intelligent batting helped the visitors prosper. The early departure of Trescothick and Knight made no impact as Nasser Hussain (46 off 54 balls, 4x4) and Michael Vaughan took the sting out of the bowling with swift running between the wickets. The spinners were milked dry with good use of feet as the third wicket added 69 in 76 balls.

Hussain swept at every opportunity in an attempt to forbid Harbhajan from settling into a line. The England captain finally paid the price for the slowness of the pitch in his attempt to clear the field.

Vaughan (63 off 81 balls, 5x4) played the perfect foil during the association with Hussain and Paul Collingwood to come up with his maiden 50.

Having survived three chances, twice courtesy Ratra’s slackness behind the stumps, the Yorkshire batsman ensured he made the most of the opportunities by working the ball into the gaps.

The quick fall of Vaughan, Flintoff and Hollioake did jeopardise their run-rate for a while but Jeremy Snape and Collingwood got together to get that back in shape.

Collingwood, in only his ninth ODI, exhibited the temperament of a seasoned pro to remain unbeaten on 71 (78 balls, 2x4, 2x6). His flamboyance was mixed with caution, but with Snape chipping in with a timely contribution, the pair added 50 in 56 balls.

More than ensuring the over-rate remains intact — England did stretch their limit in the second session — the Indians showed dramatic improvement on the field despite the few dropped catches.

However, all that faded into oblivion as they made a mess of the chase.


Cuttack, Jan. 22: 
Sourav Ganguly today blamed the three run-outs during the Indian chase for the 16-run defeat against England. The Indian skipper also struggled to find answers for his inability to turn his good starts into decent scores.

“The three run-outs during our innings cost us the match.... 251 was always achievable. We should have won after being 110 for two at one stage.” He also felt that the inexperience of his boys came through in the later stage.

Nasser Hussain, too, felt that the run outs were important and that the noisy crowd here made things tough for the batsmen. “It was very difficult to communicate with the batsmen at the other end. At times, we used hand signals to get the message through,” Hussain informed.

Sourav defended his decision to field first. “Normally the ball moves here in the first session and we aimed to capitalise on the conditions. We bowled well to restrict them to a score of 250.”He said the series was pretty wide open. “We still have four games to go,” he said.

Hussain, while praising the spirit of the young players, said he would have batted had he won the toss. “There was very little chance for the bowlers as it was a slow wicket. It suited the slower bowlers.” He was aiming 260-270, but was confident when they managed 250.

“The wicket was good but not as the one in Calcutta,” he felt. Hussain was also confident about his side’s chances in the series.

“We should have been 2-0 up by now. The important thing is to have runs on the board so that we can put enough pressure on the Indians. The youngsters have been doing well”

Hussain felt the “slip catching needs further improvement.” “Our ground fielding and throwing has been good. (James) Foster has been working hard and it’s showing in his performance. Paul Collingwood and Michael Vaughan also performed creditably.”

On Graham Thorpe’s omission, Hussain said: “Playing Thorpe would have been harsh on Vaughan. You can’t just give him one game to prove his worth.”

The conditions, Hussain felt, were tough out here today. “It has been hard work. It’s been the hottest day we’ve had on this tour (Tests and ODIs included).”

He was also all praise for Man of the Match Collingwood. “He had a difficult series versus Australia. This one is easier.”


Jan. 22: 
England levelled the series with an emphatic win in the second one-day International in Cuttack. Theirs was a truly professional display with both bat and ball. At the Eden Gardens they were far superior to India in the field though they missed a couple of early chances.

It was surprising to find India opting to chase. We have seen in recent times that if they do not get off to a good start they tend to panic a bit and make a hash of things. That was exactly what happened once Sachin Tendulkar was unluckily run-out off a deflection of the straight drive played by Dinesh Mongia.

Sourav Ganguly had fallen earlier to his old weakness outside the off-stump after playing a couple of his trademark cover-drives. Mongia looked solid once again and not just in appearance but in his batting, underlining once again that its not physical size and age, but ability that should be the criteria. For far too long have we got carried away by the theory that the slim-waisted guys are the only ones who are physically fit, but does that slimness enable them to score runs and take wickets? If slimness is the criteria then why not pick models who are slim?

Mongia has been a heavy scorer in domestic cricket, but like Martin, another heavy scorer, has been ignored for the slim-waisted ones who have not scored runs even in Ranji Trophy matches.

Now, with the kind of standard that we have in Ranji Trophy, if a slim-waisted one is not going to score there, how is he going to score in the much tougher international arena?

India may not be agile on the field, but there is nobody who is that good a fielder in India that he deserves to be picked for that alone and if that is the case then it makes sense to pick heavier guys who at least know a thing or two about scoring runs and taking wickets.

England may have been disappointed at scoring only 250 runs for they looked good for at least another 20, but some careless batting cost them those runs.

Nasser Hussain holed out when more than half the overs were to be bowled and the middle-order found Anil Kumble and Harbhajan Singh too hot to handle. Michael Vaughan and Paul Collingwood again made a good impression with their approach and their running between the wickets.

India’s running between the wickets was awful. V.V.S. (very very slow) Laxman was caught napping making a late response to Mongia’s call and then Mongia himself looking for his 50th run went for a non-existent second run. But more than that, it was the lack of judgement of a run that was the worrying factor. The other disappointing thing was the manner in which Virender Sehwag and Hemang Badani threw their wickets away. If only they had shown the kind of defiant spirit that Agarkar and Kumble showed when the chips were down.

Ajay Ratra too showed good cricketing sense and showed no signs of being pressured by the situation. That was the only plus for India. They have a lot of problems to overcome and most of them are in the head !


Calcutta, Jan. 22: 
The BCCI has formally expressed to the ICC its inability to participate in the Referees’ Commission, if the new suggestions to break the deadlock over the Commission’s composition are not accepted. The BCCI made its stand clear in a letter sent by its president Jagmohan Dalmiya to ICC president Malcolm Gray yesterday.

Incidentally, that the Indian Board was unlikely to co-operate with the ICC was reported by The Telegraph last week itself.

Dalmiya said at a press conference this evening the BCCI has put forward two proposals to break the impasse over the constitution of the Commission to review Mike Denness’ controversial punishment of six Indians in the Port Elizabeth Test last November.

The first alternative suggested is to put the Commission on hold till the meeting of the ICC Executive Board in March. The second is to constitute a 10-member Commission, consisting of one representative from each Test-playing country.

These follow ICC’s refusal to accept any of BCCI’s recommended names in forming the three-member Commission. The BCCI wanted the members to be from a country other than the three involved in the Denness episode, but that was not adhered to by the ICC. The BCCI has volunteered to meet all expenses of the 10-member panel, if the ICC is unable to shoulder the financial burden of hosting such a big panel.


Calcutta, Jan. 22:

Calcutta, Jan. 22: 
Former India wing back Aloke Mukherjee will be the new coach of Tollygunge Agragami, following Amal Dutta’s resignation, club secretary Mantoo Ghosh said today.

“We waited for Dutta in the team’s practice today, but he didn’t turn up. Following this, our officials held an emergency meeting and Aloke was unanimously named for the job,” Ghosh said.

Mukherjee will officially take charge tomorrow. Ghosh said the club’s contract with the new coach is till the end of the National Football League (NFL).

Dutta, citing the club officials’ continuous intervention in his work, resigned after the 0-4 thrashing against Churchill Brothers at a NFL match Sunday.

Tollygunge Agragami, with six points from seven matches, are now struggling in the lower strung of the NFL table.


Calcutta, Jan. 22: 
Stars Gaurav Ghei and Vijay Kumar, along with K.S. Sibia, Randhir Ghotra and the city-based Yusuf Ali were in the lead after the first round of the Rs 8 lakh golf meet of the Hero Honda Indian Tour in Noida today. According to information reaching here, all leaders hit two-under 70.

Asgar Ali, Basad Ali (both Calcutta), Minky Barbora (Noida), Rajkumar Rawat (Lucknow) and Mohd Nawab (Patna) were at one-under 71. Mukesh Kumar did not have a good start, bringing in a three-over card.


Calcutta, Jan. 22: 
There are one too many important events in tomorrow’s race-card. However, it is the 2,000m Eveready Indian Champion Cup, sponsored by Eveready Industries, that takes the top-spot in the frame of seven.

Although there are seven horses aspiring for the Champion’s crown, only two of them — Altenburg and Arterial — have the right credential to land the prize. Their current form and class apart, youth is also on their side. While Altenburg has a runaway Nepal Gold Cup victory to his credit, Arterial was a trifle unlucky to have lost the Kingfisher Calcutta Derby by a proverbial whisker.

Between the two it is the Darius Byramji-trainee who appears to have a thin edge over his main rival because of his experience against seasoned company. The Razeen-Try Kola five-year-old will be partnered by the champion jockey Aslam Kader.

The Indian Champagne Stakes is no mean an event compared to the Champion Cup. The winner of the race may figure prominently among the best of juveniles who are to constitute the classic fields next winter. It is another matter that no smart youngster over the weeks has established his credentials as a brilliant performer. Therefore all eyes will be on Network who will be making his debut. Kader will be seen in action atop the Twist And Turn-Net Net Net three-year-old.
