  • CLOSE

    Right, that's it from day three, and indeed the match, from Old Trafford. England have won by an innings and 54 runs to take a 2-1 lead in the series with one Test to play. Thanks for your company, please join us again on Friday.
  • MAN OF THE MATCH

    Stuart Broad has been named man of the match after that terrific six-wicket haul in India's first innings. He is, of course, unable to be there to pick up the over-sized cheque as he's at hospital getting that injured nose checked out.
  • COOK REACTION

    Alastair Cook revealed at the presentation ceremony that as well as Broad being unavailable, England also had to cope with a sick Anderson during India's second innings. They had a fully fit Moeen Ali, though...Cook said: 'Jimmy hasn't been very well. It was a great effort by him to get off the bed and bowl those nine overs. We knew we had a big effort to bowl for three hours today - Moeen was fantastic. Everything went to plan. I've never seen a bloke work so hard and make such a big improvement in such a short space of time. He's really learned how to bowl in international cricket.'
  • DHONI QUOTES

    India's captain admitted the batsmen needed to find form...and quickly: 'Even in the first innings we weren't up to the mark. That is one area we will definitely have to improve before the next Test. We talk a lot about our bowling, but I think so far in this series our batting has not clicked. I feel it is very important we get going - the batting department will have to improve.'
  • REACTION

    Stay with us to hear from both captains, as well as the man of the match (Broad, surely?). Before then, let me just mark your card in telling you the fifth and final Test of the series begins next Friday at the Oval. As always, we will have over-by-over coverage in this blog.
  • ENGLAND WIN

    By an innings and 54 runs...inside three days (when half of one of those was lost to the rain)...with their first-innings destroyer unable to bowl second time around due to an injured nose
  • WICKET! Pankaj b Jordan 0

    Pankaj bowled first ball! Jordan is full and straight and the last man is cleaned up emphatically as the ball goes off his toe and onto the stumps. India all out for 161 and haven't batted 90 overs in the match.
  • WICKET! Aaron c Buttler b Jordan 9

    Jordan gets the short ball on target at last, cramping Aaron for room and getting him to edge through to Buttler behind the stumps. Pankaj next, leaving the fat lady little time to get warmed up.
  • Over 42 - India 153/8 (Ashwin 39, Aaron 8)

    Moeen is driven square by Ashwin after over-pitching. He's struggled to find the right line and length to his fellow spinner, who finishes the over by coming down the pitch and launching a six over long-on. Have to say, England have bowled pretty poorly at Ashwin in both innings of this Test. India now find themselves 62 behind - Jordan will be continuing from the Statham End.
  • Over 41 - India 141/8 (Ashwin 28, Aaron 8)

    Aaron cuts away Jordan wide of backward point for four to get off the mark, then goes on the front foot to drive the bowler through the covers for another four runs. That pair of boundaries could see a change in the attack after the DRINKS break in Manchester.
  • Over 40 - India 133/8 (Ashwin 28, Aaron 0)

    A single in the Moeen over, Ashwin getting it to leave himself on strike to face Jordan. India trail by 82 runs.
  • Over 39 - India 133/8 (Ashwin 28, Aaron 0)

    Aaron in at 10 - Pankaj's batting exploits so far in this series suggest England might not need to call for the extra half-hour. They possibly won't need another half-hour. India's balcony looks a little shocked at the situation - 90 minutes ago they were 53-1.
  • WICKET! Kumar run out 9

    Fair play to Kumar - having been dismissed off a no ball in Jordan's last over, he now obligingly gives his wicket away by returning for a foolish second run. Moeen's throw from out near deep point is excellent, leaving Buttler to whip off the bails and catch Kumar comfortably short of his ground.
  • Over 38 - India 132/7 (Ashwin 28, Kumar 9)

    Moeen rattles through a maiden. Anderson was off the field for a brief period, not sure if he's yet free to bowl again. England might want him to have a burst at these two fairly soon.
  • Over 37 - India 132/7 (Ashwin 28, Kumar 9)

    England think they've got an eighth wicket when Bell takes an edge from Kumar's bat, only replays show Jordan had no part of his foot behind the line when he let the ball go. Careless - he and Woakes have combined to bowl 18 overs at a cost of 81 runs for a solitary wicket so far in this innings. But for an inch, they would have had one apiece. Jordan looks rather rueful as he takes his sweater.
  • Over 36 - India 126/7 (Ashwin 27, Kumar 5)

    Kumar drives gloriously when offered the chance to do so by Moeen. Too full, and duly punished in style. India, though, still trail by 89 runs. You reckon need one more wicket and then this game could be over rather quickly.
  • Over 35 - India 121/7 (Ashwin 26, Kumar 1)

    England continue to pepper Ashwin with short stuff - he continues to dismiss it, picking up runs in the process. He pulls a four through mid-wicket off Jordan, then also crunches a back-foot drive away behind point for a similar result. The final ball of the over is then worked away through mid-wicket with real ease for three, meaning Ashwin will keep the strike. Runs continue to be haemorrhaged from one end while Moeen poses a serious threat from the other.
  • Over 34 - India 107/7 (Ashwin 13, Kumar 1)

    Kumar avoids a third straight duck in the series - and also registering a pair at Old Trafford - as he turns Moeen into the leg side for a long single. England are crowding the lower order with close catchers.
  • Over 33 - India 105/6 (Dhoni 27, Ashwin 12)

    Woakes off after going for too many. Jordan takes over and only (ONLY) concedes five, all of them to Dhoni drives when he's far too full in length.
