England level series with 10-wicket win



Report courtesy of Eurosport.

England wasted no time in sealing a 10-wicket win before lunch on day four of the second test against India in Mumbai to level the four-match series at 1-1 on Monday.

Full Scorecard: India v England

The tourists had made huge inroads into the Indian batting line-up the previous evening, but finished them off quickly in the morning, conceding just 25 more runs while claiming the last three wickets to dismiss India for 142.

Graeme Swann picked up a further two scalps, while Monty Panesar took his 11th wicket of the match to record the best figures of an English spinner in a test in India.

That left a target of 57 runs, which England picked off without loss in fewer than 10 overs.

Nick Compton was unbeaten on a 28-ball 30 and Alastair Cook was also not out, adding 18.

The teams meet again for the third test in Kolkata on December 5.

Earlier, Harbhajan Singh and Gautam Gambhir were positive and the former plundered Panesar's opening over for 10 runs.

But Swann accounted for him in the next over, attempting to cut, only to manage an edge to Jonathan Trott at slip.

Zaheer Khan played with patience for 10 balls before trying to slog-sweeping Panesar. The ball went straight up, and Matt Prior completed the catch.

Pragyan Ojha inside-edged Panesar onto his pad and on to short leg, but remarkably Umpire Aleem Dar missed it with the total on 136.

Gambhir (65) was then unlucky to be adjudged LBW out at the other end, getting some bat on a Swann delivery.
