Men in blue shine again

cricketNew Delhi: With complete ease, effortlessly Virat Kohli and Gautam Gambhir helped India overhaul England’s 238-target. The men in blue selected their second victory over . Riding on Virat Kohli’s unbeaten 112 and his record unfinished double-century stand with Gautam Gambhir, India scored a resounding eight-wicket wicket with 80 deliveries to spare to take a 2-0 lead in the five-match series.

Gambhir, who smashed 10 boundaries in his unbeaten 84, played his part to perfection.
