Mumbai Test First Day

Strauss ton puts England on top

Andrew Strauss ended a run of low scores in the sub-continent to hit 128 and guide England to 272-3 on the first day of the third Test against India.
Strauss put on 106 with debutant Owais Shah and 72 with Kevin Pietersen after India captain Rahul Dravid had surprised many by opting to bowl first.
Shah was only playing because of an illness suffered by Alastair Cook.

Mumbai Test Second Day

England produced a solid performance in Mumbai (Bombay) to leave India 89-3 chasing the tourists' score of 400.
Owais Shah (88) and Andrew Flintoff (50) both did well with the bat on day two although Flintoff was dropped off successive balls from Munaf Patel.
England's seamers were impressive when India batted and Matthew Hoggard removed both openers in a fiery spell.
James Anderson then trapped Sachin Tendulkar Sachin Tendulkar's Site, who edged a wide ball to the keeper and departed for a single.
The one blemish for England was the loss of five wickets either side of lunch, which resulted in a collapse from 326-3 to 356-8.
Young paceman Sri Sreesanth triggered that demise for excellent figures of 4-70 in only his second Test appearance.
But in the final session, England's seamers did what India's had twice failed to do - take wickets with the new ball.
Hoggard was in his element and he first struck when Sehwag, not for the first time in the series, failed to get his gloves out of the way of a short-pitched ball which then looped into Shah's lap at first slip.
Tendulkar was in no frame of mind to end a worrying run of failure in Tests and he was the next man out when Anderson, working up good pace, had him taken by Jones.
At 28-3, India were gasping for a recovery and the dependable Dravid found a partner willing to play a few shots in Yuvraj Singh.

Mumbai Test Third Day

Bowlers earn big lead for England

James Anderson and Geraint Jones combined to give England the upper hand in the third Test against India.
The tourists will take a lead of 152 into the fourth day in Mumbai despite losing Andrew Strauss and Ian Bell cheaply as they closed on 31-2.
Anderson had two chances dropped off his bowling but took 4-40 and produced a direct hit to run out Mahendra Dhoni, who smashed 11 fours in his 64.
Jones supported his bowlers with five catches as India were all out for 279.
It left them 121 in arrears, but could have been far worse but for a ninth-wicket stand of 55 between Anil Kumble and Sri Sreesanth.

Mumbai Test Fourth Day

England set to press for Test win

England have their sights on a win in Mumbai to tie the series after setting India a massive 313 in the third Test.
Stand-in opener Irfan Pathan fell to James Anderson in an eight-over period before stumps to leave India on 18-1.
Andrew Flintoff hit 50, sharing a stand of 66 with Paul Collingwood (32), as England totalled 191 in their second innings after refusing to declare.
Spinner Anil Kumble bowled 28 overs in the day and had Flintoff stumped on his way to figures of 4-49.
Only four sides have won a Test batting fourth at the Wankhede Stadium, with the 163 attained by South Africa six years ago the highest target achieved.
No team has ever scored more than 276 to win a Test in India and the home side's chances did not look good when Pathan played on to an Anderson full toss.

Mumbai Test Fifth Day

England beat India to tie series

England won by 212 runs in Mumbai for their first victory in India for 21 years to tie the Test series.
Shaul Udal took four wickets for 14 runs to bowl the home side out for 100 in mid-afternoon on the final day.
Needing 313 to win, India crashed from 75-3 at lunch, with Udal dismissing Sachin Tendulkar Sachin Tendulkar's Site for 34 and having last man Munaf Patel caught in the deep.
Andrew Flintoff triggered the collapse by having captain Rahul Dravid caught behind and finished with 3-14.

The Venue

Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai (Bombay)

Mumbai (Bombay) is regarded as India's cricket capital, and that point has been reinforced since the emergence of hometown hero Sachin Tendulkar Sachin Tendulkar's Site.
England won a Test at the Wankhede in 1980 when Ian Botham produced one of the great all-round performances, with 13 wickets and a score of 114.
But since then, England have lost twice, on the 1984-85 tour and in 1993.
The wicket tends to favour swing in the morning sessions while the spinners get some help over the last two days.
