Team India aims to finish with a flourish
Dharamsala: A morale-boosting series win sealed, India would be aiming to finish with a flourish when they take on England in the inconsequential fifth and final cricket one-dayer at the picturesque HPCA stadium on Sunday.
A 4-1 victory might not heal the scars of a Test series loss against the same opponents but it will surely inject a fresh lease of life in Mahendra Singh Dhoni's men ahead of their next Test assignment against Michael Clarke's Australia. The skipper himself will certainly feel good as he is leading from the front and walking the talk of shouldering more responsibility upfront having successfully wielded his willow.
There is an old adage that 'revenge is a dish best served cold' and certainly the irony is not lost out when one considers the problems that the Englishmen faced whenever their caravan headed north -- be it Delhi or Mohali.
