Mumbai Test, day four: India crash to humiliating ten-wicket defeat [IND-ENG:1-1(2/4)]

England inflicted a humiliating ten-wicket defeat upon India on the 4th day of the second Test match at Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai, to level the four-Test series 1-1. England openers captain Alastair Cook (18*) and Nick Compton (30*) knocked down the required 57 runs in 9.4 overs.

Mumbai Test, day three: Monty Panesar's spin take England near massive Test victory over India

Gautam Gambhir was on a determined 53 and Harbhajan Singh on a single at the end of play on day three after Panesar finished the day on 5-61.

Mumbai Test, day two: Cook & Pietersen defy India spin

England's Alastair Cook and Kevin Pietersen overcame a trial by spin in an unbroken stand of 110 as England reached 178-2 on day two. Cook batted for 251 minutes and faced 209 balls, striking a six and ten fours, while the more aggressive Pietersen was batting on 62 after a stay of 127 minutes during which he faced 85 balls and hit nine fours. A century for either player would be their 22nd in Tests, equalling the England record held by Geoffrey Boycott, Colin Cowdrey and Walter Hammond.Earlier, Cheteshwar Pujara was out - stumped Prior bowled Swann for 135 - for the first time in the series. In between, he scored 382 runs in just under 17 hours, facing 790 balls spread across three innings. India were all out for 327 with Ashwin (68), Harbhajan Singh (21), Zaheer Khan (11) all scoring useful runs towards the end. Swann took four for 70, while Panesar ended up with five for 129.
Day two: England 178/2 (Cook 87*, Pietersen 62*) trail India 327 (Pujara 135, Ashwin 68, Swann 4-70, Panesar 5-118) by 149 runs

Mumbai Test, day one: Panesar (4-91) upstaged by Pujara (114*)

Cheteshwar Pujara cracked his second consecutive Test century and remained unbeaten on 114 on a turning track at the Wankhede Stadium. Along with Ravichandran Ashwin (60 batting), Pujara took India to a comfortable 266/6 at close after they were reeling at 119/5 at one stage. Earlier, Monty Panesar removed Virender Sehwag and Sachin Tendulkar as India took lunch on 87/3 on day one after Dhoni won the toss in Sehwag's 100th test match. Sehwag managed 30, and Sachin Tendulkar - perhaps playing on his home ground at the highest level for the last time - just eight. Panesar, back for his first Test in eight months after a clamour for his inclusion, ended the day with four for 91. India XI: Sehwag, Gambhir, Pujara, Tendulkar, Kohli, Yuvraj Singh, Dhoni (C/W), Harbhajan Singh, Ashwin, Zaheer Khan, Ojha England XI: Cook (Captain), Compton, Trott, Pietersen, Bairstow, Patel, Prior (Wicket Keeper), Broad, Swann, Anderson, Panesar

Ahmedabad Test, day four: Cook, Prior give England a 10-runs lead, and hope

Skipper Alistair Cook, who has faced 341 balls and struck 20 fours for his 168 - his 21st Test century, was given splendid support by Matt Prior, who was not out on 84 that came off 190 balls. The 141-run partnership between them helped England wipe out the deficit and score 340 for five at the end of play on the fourth day. After lunch, Umesh Yadav trapped Ian Bell lbw on 22 before the right-armer dismissed new batsman Samit Patel with the very next ball. But Prior came in and steadied the ship with Cook as the tourists reached 264-5 at tea before batting out the evening session.Meanwhile, India opener Gautam Gambhir cut short his stay in Ahmedabad to return home and be with his family following his grandmother's death. He is expected to join the team in Ahmedabad for the final day's play.

Revenge on India's mind

The first match of the four-Test series against England starts in Ahmedabad Motera on Thursday, with India looking to exact revenge for the humiliation they suffered on their last trip to England. Both teams will be without the services of fast bowlers Ishant Sharma (viral fever) and Steven Finn (thigh strain) in the first test. Both Dhoni and Cook expected the dry surface at the Motera stadium to assist spin, but added its unknown quality would generate considerable interest for the two teams. With spin being looked as the decisive factor in this series, there will be huge pressure on the Indian trio of R Ashwin, Pragyan Ojha and Harbhajan Singh. India XI: Virender Sehwag, Gautam Gambhir, Cheteshwar Pujara, Sachin Tendulkar, Virat Kohli, Yuvraj Singh, Mahendra Dhoni (capt & wk), Ravichandran Ashwin, Zaheer Khan, Umesh Yadav, Pragyan Ojha. England XI: Alastair Cook (Captain), Nick Compton, Jonathan Trott, Kevin Pietersen, Ian Bell, Samit Patel, Matt Prior (Wicket Keeper), Tim Bresnan, Stuart Broad, Graeme Swann, James Anderson.
