Live Cricket Score India vs England 2012-13: 5th ODI match
India take on England in the fifth and final One-Day International at the HPCA Stadium at Dharamsala today. Having clinched the five-match series already, India would have arrived at the nippy Dharamsala buoyed by the warmth of finally having something to hit back at critics with.
India will be the warmer of the two teams going into the final ODI at the scenic Himachal Pradesh Cricket Association (HPCA) stadium in the heart of winter. Located 4,000 feet above sea level, flanked by the snow-capped Dhauladhar mountain range, and harbouring temperatures at sub-zero levels, India’s Virat Kohli would be a pleased man after his wish of sealing the series at Mohali and leaving nothing to chance (read weather) was fulfilled.
Even though the match is purely of academic interest, world No 1 India would look to record a win in the last of their engagements prior to a tricky home Test series against Australia starting February 23.
As for the young, inexperienced England team, other than the customary pride being at stake, they would want to end an otherwise successful tour (counting the Test and T20 series) to the subcontinent on a high note.
