India seal third Test win over England

Having been frustrated by Adil Rashid (33no) and James Anderson late on day four, there were no such problems for India on the fifth morning as Ravichandran Ashwin outfoxed Anderson (11) with a leg break that the tailender could only loop up to Ajinkya Rahane at slip, England all out for 317.

The wicket was the only one of England’s 20 not to fall to a seamer with Jasprit Bumrah taking 5-85 in the second innings on his return from injury after Hardik Pandya’s five-wicket haul in the first.

India’s triumph halves England lead in the series to 2-1 with two matches to play, at the Ageas Bowl and The Oval, and Virat Kohli’s side will now be aiming to become just the second team – and the first since Australia in the 1936/37 Ashes – to win a five-match series from 2-0 down.
