Owais Shah's superb display with the bat failed to prevent England from suffering another defeat against India in the One Day International Series in Bangalore on Sunday.
The rain-affected defeat handed India an unassailable 4-0 lead in the seven-match series.
Middlesex star Shah raised hopes for England when he top scored with 72 for the tourists, who were set an adjusted victory of 198 from 22 overs.
Batting at No.3, Shah sought to re-invigorate England's reply after opener Ravi Bopra was caught for one.

Shah was joined by Andrew Flintoff (41) in the ninth over and the pair set about bagging victory for England after two defeats against Mumbai that preceded the losses in India.
But the 82-run partnership with Flintoff came to an abrupt halt when Shah was caught by Sachin Tendulkar, 65 runs short of the target.
