That' when the fat lady took her seat. She started to clear her throat and warm-up those cords when this happened: -

KP Pietersen c Dhoni b Khan 0 3 0 0 0.00

Colly fights on like http://img1.jurko.net/avatar_4162.gif

But now it's 219-7 and England don't have the required balls anymore ... Congratz India, comprehensive win.

Something a bit different this time: an anagram for you to decipher.
Up for grabs are the following juicy treats for some lucky winners:
One UK reader will win a pair of tickets to the sixth ODI at The Oval on September 5, as well as a pair of tickets for the floodlit Surrey Pro40 (http://www.surreycricket.com/events/floodlit-cricket/) against Somerset on September 11.
Two other readers will win a mini-bat, signed by Harbhajan Singh among other Surrey players, and a Surrey cap.
To get your hands on the freebies, which England player's name is an anagram of Administer Charisma?
Send your entries - and contact details - in to caption1@cricinfo.com immediately, stating your country, and good luck.
The competition closes on 31 August. The winners will be the first correct entries to be drawn at random.
The winners of the last competition (http://content-usa.cricinfo.com/ci/content/story/307512.html) are:
Vikas Madaan, India
Alexis Smith, Scotland
Dave Deverick, England

They win a signed print of Alastair Cook, Ravi Bopara and Danish Kaneria (one player per winner), tickets to Essex (http://www.essexcricket.org.uk/)'s Pro40 match against Gloucestershire on September 3 (floodlit) and a copy of Harry Thompson's Penguins Stopped Play. Well done everyone.
We asked which England bowler took a hat-trick when England played India at Trent Bridge in the NatWest Challenge in 2004 and who were the victims? The answer was: Steve Harmison, who scalped Mohammad Kaif, L Balaji and Ashish Nehra.

Any cricket guru to grab those freebies.

India will show Eng their real class

That was a good performance by India. They completely outplayed England. But I am still worried about India's fielding. They let down some very easy chances.
