CARDIFF (AFP) - Suresh Raina's dynamic century laid the platform for world champions India's crushing 133-run win over England in the second one-day international at Cardiff on Wednesday.

Victory gave India a 1-0 lead in the five-match series following Monday's washout in Bristol and saw them return to winning ways after their 3-1 defeat by England in the preceding Test series.

Raina's innings was the cornerstone of India's imposing 304 for six after England captain Alastair Cook won the toss.

England, chasing a rain-adjusted 295 off 47 overs in reply, were well-placed at 54 without loss. But they lost all 10 wickets for 107 runs as they collapsed to 161 all out in 38.1 overs.
