In this match, India dominated England with both bat and ball. India batted first and scored 250 runs. Sachin Tendulkar was in breathtaking form as he scored a half-century with some glorious shots. Giving him company was Rahul Dravid and Yuvraj Singh who scored 62 and 42 respectively.
India's bowling was led by veteran Javagal Srinath, but it was the youngster Ashish Nehra who stole the show. His swing and pace troubled the English batsmen earlier on as he finished with figures of 6/23. England was bundled out for 168 runs. Nehra's bowling figures are still the best figures by an Indian bowler in the World Cup.
