India victory

India wrap up swift victory on the fifth morning at Trent Bridge

Ind v Eng, 3rd Test, report

It only took 10 minutes and 17 balls for India to complete a 203-run victory in the third Test at Trent Bridge.


With 203 runs needed to win, a whole day to bat, and just one wicket in hand, it was always going to be only a matter of time until England succumbed to defeat on the fifth day at Trent Bridge. James Anderson and Adil Rashid had already done well to make it this far, having survived the extra half-hour taken on the fourth evening.

They could extend their partnership only by another six runs before Ravichandran Ashwin struck, Anderson aiming a cut at a leg-break and only succeeding in gloving up and over the keeper, whence Ajinkya Rahane ran round to take the catch.

It completed an excellent all-round performance from India, who out-played their opponents in all three departments during this Test match. Virat Kohli was named Player of the Match for his century and 97, but it could just as easily have been Hardik Pandya or Jasprit Bumrah for their explosive bursts of fast bowling.
