Scorecard

India won the 3rd ODI from England by 16 runs by D/L method. But the match was evenly poised where in the end India pulled off, thanks to some good hitts by Yuvraj Singh and Virender Sehwag.

But the most interesting thing was Yuvraj Singh getting out to Andrew Flintoff caught in the deep square leg position by Stuart Broad. There is some contest going on between Flintoff and Yuvraj since last T20 World Cup. You cannot forget the match where Yuvraj hit Six Sixes in an over, where he was provoked by Flintoff and Stuart Broad became victim of Flintoff's provocation.

Andrew Flintoff played some mind tricks in the 3rd ODI with Yuvraj, for which he became victim of and played a nothing shot to get out at score of 38 and stunned the crowd at Kanpur. Flintoff did his trade mark walking taking back steps and looking at Yuvraj which was enough to upset him and he threw his wicket. On taking Yuvraj's catch on deep square leg, Stuart Broad, celebrated like a baby who had been crying and had been given a balloon after a lot of cry.

This contest is getting interesting day by day will wait for next match which is going to be played at Banglore on 23rd November 2008. This series is going to continue for a while and this contest is going to be a fun to watch.
