The England cricket team toured India from 9 November 2008 to 23 December 2008 and played 2 Test matches and 5 One Day Internationals (ODIs).

Following the attacks in Mumbai on 26 November, the final 2 ODIs against India were cancelled, India taking the series 5-0.[1]

As a result of the Mumbai Attacks the Test matches were moved from Ahmedabad and Mumbai to Chennai and Mohali. England flew home initially and then attended a training camp in Abu Dhabi. On 7 December the England team decided to participate in the 2 match Test series[2] and arrived in Chennai the next day.[3]

ODI series[edit]

India won the series 5–0. The last 2 scheduled ODIs were cancelled, following the attacks in Mumbai. The player of the series was Yuvraj Singh, who hit 2 centuries, on his way to 325 runs at an average of 65.00. India secured large winning margins in the first 3 matches, and the last. The fourth and closest match included a controversial application of the Duckworth-Lewis method, prompting the England camp to suggest a rethink of its methodologies.
