Ashwin took some quick wickets to rattle England


Indian spinners took firm hold of the match while using the turn and bounce of the pitch to put England in trouble. They claimed four scalps and made it tougher for the English batsmen to save the match.

Earlier India's lower order rescued them again as Ravichandran Ashwin, Ravindra Jadeja and Jayant Yadav hit half centuries.

Jayant Yadav, India’s ‘find of the series’ once again impressed with his fighting qualities as his gutsy 55 not out frustrated the visitors. He added 53 runs for the eighth wicket with Jadeja as the morning session certainly belonged to the home team.

For the record, no visiting team has won against India after having conceded 65-run lead in the first innings. The last time it happened was 52 years ago in 1964 when Bob Simpson Australia won after conceding a 65-run first innings lead.
