India beat England by D/L method

India claimed a 16-run win over England under the Duckworth-Lewis method in a weather-hit third One-dayer on Thursday, taking a 3-0 lead in the seven-match series.

India, chasing England's 240 all out, were 198 for five after 40 overs when poor light forced the players off the field to abruptly end what was developing into a keen finish.

The hosts were 16 runs ahead under the Duckworth-Lewis method for weather-interrupted games and were declared winners in hazy conditions.
Poor light had forced a 45-minute delay in the morning, reducing the game to 49 overs per side.
Opener Virender Sehwag top-scored with 68 to lead the chase against England, who put up a vastly improved display after losing the first two games by 158 runs and 54 runs respectively.
All rounder Andrew Flintoff, who scored 26, grabbed the key wickets of openers Gautam Gambhir (14), Sehwag and the in-form Yuvraj Singh (38), who hit back-to-back match-winning hundreds in the first two games.

However, skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni (29 not out) and Yusuf Pathan (12) hung on to make sure India held wickets in hand which kept them ahead when bad light intervened.
All rounder Ravi Bopara top-scored with 60 as makeshift opener and added 79 runs with Ian Bell (46) to lift a shaky England before they were all out with two balls left.
Bopara struck eight fours until he was fourth out, stumped against Yuvraj's occasional left-arm spin.

England's batting reshuffle largely failed to work, however, and off spinner Harbhajan Singh grabbed three wickets as slow bowlers once again kept a tight leash on the scoring.
The spinner removed skipper Kevin Pietersen (13) and out of form Paul Collingwood (1) off successive overs, returning three for 31.
He reached a career tally of 200 one-day wickets when he had Owais Shah (40) caught on the boundary.

Flintoff and fellow paceman Stuart Broad bowled superbly in tandem to reduce India to 34 for two in their reply.
The all rounder had Gautam Gambhir (14) caught at long on by Broad, who forced Suresh Raina (1) to play onto the stumps.
Sehwag reached his 31st one-day fifty before Flintoff had him caught by a leaping Collingwood at point, finishing with 3-31.

Dhoni and Yuvraj added 52 runs but struggled to break free as off spinner Graeme Swann impressed in his first game of the series, returning one for 47.
However, England new ball bowler James Anderson conceded 11 runs in one crucial over before India scored freely in the final five-over period of field restrictions.
The fourth One-dayer will be played in Bangalore on Sunday.

There's one more thing which we can say that differentiate anime and cartoons, that is, for example, in the Simpsons, Bart is the class clown for the entire show but in most of the anime the character's traits change dynamically, like in the starting they may be kind of shy, or maybe considered as weak or harmless, but later on they become stronger than most of the Dragon Ball Super Latest Episodes other characters.

Take an orange vest, about 2-3 sizes bigger than you, something that fills out nice and stops at mid range, cut a V-neck down to the top of the middle of the chest area and remove all embellishments.

Yes, his wife was killed and his daughter kidnapped, and then yes, he was sent to what is essentially hell for 12,000 years to think about it. I'm not saying the guy doesn't have a right to be angry, I'm just saying that cutscenes filled with monosyllabic grunts and lots of yelling don't really make for compelling Dragon Ball Super Latest Episodes.

You play this game because you want to see a guy who's so angry that he grows four extra arms. A guy who is so angry that he throws a flying shellfish that's the size of a blue whale, back into a snapping turtle that's the size of a small town. You want to see a guy who's so angry that he punches the ground hard enough to propel himself into space... where he proceeds to destroy an entire fleet of warships. You play this game because you want to see a guy kick his way to a planet's core. You play this game because it's the craziest, planet stabbing-est, most OVER-THE-TOP (yeah I said it) pile of crazy out there right Dragon Ball Super Latest Episodes.
