Mumbai: England inflicted a humiliating ten-wicket defeat upon India on the fourth day of the second Test at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai on Monday to level the four-Test series 1-1.
England openers captain Alastair Cook and Nick Compton knocked down the required 57 runs in 9.4 overs.

In a new embarrassing low, the Indian second innings folded up at 142 runs in 44.1 overs with Gautam Gambhir being the top scorer with 65 and his was the last Indian wicket to fall.

Apart from Gambhir, only R Ashwin (11) managed to get to double figures as the Indian batsmen collapsed in front of England spinners.

The Indian second innings ended when umpire Tony Hill adjudged Gautam Gambhir out leg before wicket to Graeme Swann even though there was a thickish inside edge.

Gambhir hit 6 fours in his 65-run knock.

Monty Panesar took six wickets, while Swann scalped four.

Panesar took his sixth wicket when he had Zaheer Khan caught by Matt Prior.

Zaheer’s patience ran out as he went for a slog sweep to a flighted delivery but got a top edge, the ball went straight up in the air, Prior called for it and caught it near square leg.

Swann struck in the second over of the day as he had Harbhajan Singh caught by Jonathan Trott at first slip.

Harbhajan, who hit the first ball of the day from Monty Panesar for four, went on to the back foot to cut a delivery, but it bounced too much and he ended up getting an edge for Trott to complete the catch.

The day’s play started with Gautam Gambhir and Harbhajan resuming the Indian second innings.

On Day 3, riding on centuries from captain Alastair Cook and Kevin Pietersen, England finished at a healthy 413, a first-innings lead of 86 runs, and then reduced India to 117/7 by stumps.

Cook laid the foundation with a superb 206-run stand with Pietersen, who absolutely demolished any blemishes against spin and played one of the best, if not the best, by a foreigner on Indian soil in a long time.

His innings was more than well-paced and his array of strokes on a turning track was worth being in awe of.

The Indian top-order was ripped apart completely as Swann and Panesar taught India how to bowl on at the Wankhede wicket, with nine wickets between them in the first innings and seven in the second.

The 16 wickets alone ensured Panesar a 10-wicket match haul.
