India's Suresh Raina (right) and MS Dhoni run between the wickets during the second one-day international match between England and India at the Glamorgan County Cricket Ground in Cardiff, Wales on August 27, 2014Suresh Raina's dynamic century took India to 304 for six against England in the second one-day international at Cardiff on Wednesday. In what was effectively the first of this five-match series, following Monday's total washout in Bristol, India were in trouble at 19 for two before a stand of 91 between Rohit Sharma (52) and Ajinkya Rahane (41) revived the innings. Left-hander Raina, who made exactly 100, and India captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni (52), then strengthened the tourists' grip on the game with a fifth-wicket stand of 144. Rain during the mid-innings break left England chasing a revised target of 295 off 47 overs.
