England take unassailable 2-1 lead in series
It was just a matter of few balls before Pragyan Ojha bowed out and with it, India’s chances of any miraculous escape. Ashwin, in his valiant attempt to delay the inevitable, ended the first over of the day with a couple of consecutive boundaries off Finn, taking his overnight score to 91. However, Ojha couldn’t last long enough to help India’s lone fighter get to his deserving ton, as they were bundled for 247 in their second innings. The only consolation for Team India could be the defeat margin. What could have been another humiliating 10-wicket loss was reduced marginally, thanks to three early scalps in England’s second innings, who were chasing a lowly 41 for an unassailable 2-1 lead in the series.
