England Beats India by Six Wickets to Avoid Cricket Tour Sweep

Oct. 29 (Bloomberg) -- England avoided being swept on its cricket tour of India with a six-wicket victory in a Twenty20 match in Kolkata.

Kevin Pietersen, playing with a broken thumb, scored 53 as England, the reigning world champion in the sport’s shortest form, reached its victory total of 121 with eight balls remaining.

Steve Finn took 3-22 as India was limited to 120-9 after winning the toss and electing to bat. Suresh Raina’s 39 was the top score for the host, which won 5-0 in the one-day series between the teams.

England earlier this week was named the No. 1 team in the first International Cricket Council Twenty20 rankings. It’s also the world’s top-ranked Test team.
