There were many good performances for England that helped them win this Test. Nishad Pai Vaidya analyses here.

James Anderson was named Man of the Match for his match haul of seven for 77. Anderson said that he was not sure about the outcome of the Pushgate hearing, scheduled for August 1, saying that he would have to wait and see what happened. Meanwhile, Ishant Sharma continues to be unfit. MS Dhoni said that there were high chances he will not play at Old Trafford.


What a performance by England for five days straight. They out-batted India in the Test match, and despite the wicket remaining excellent for batting on all five days, the runs on the board which they had, mattered the most. Excellent comeback for Alastair Cook, Ian Bell and James Anderson. England level the series, it’s up to India how they come back after this  thrashing. This is Devarchit Varma signing out, read Shiamak Unwalla’s match report here.

England win the Test match by 266 runs! Ajinkya Rahane completes his half-century, he has been the lone fighter for India so far in this Test match. Ali gets his sixth wicket in the innings as Pankaj Singh is bowled by the spinner.
OUT! P Singh b Ali 9 (7)

Update from Southampton: The shuttle Buses have started their return service from Ageas Bowl – time 12:40 pm.

This has to be a nightmare for the Indian fans. Moeen Ali grabs his fifth wicket in the innings as Mohammed Shami is cleaned up. All over for India.
OUT! M Shami b Ali 0 (4)
India in absolute shambles here! It is Moeen Ali of all people who is bringing them down. Bat-pad and out for Bhuvneshwar Kumar. England close to series-leveling win.
OUT! B Kumar c Anderson b Ali 0 (4)
Moeen Ali returns to torment India! Ravindra Jadeja is cleaned up by the England spinner as India have now lost another batsman! Jadeja goes for his shot but misses the ball completely. Irresponsible Indian batsmen continues to let them down…
OUT! R Jadeja b Ali 15 (35)
Things pretty calm in the middle as of now. Rahane and Jadeja are batting with utmost caution, occasionally being beaten by England bowlers. Anderson is off the attack now, Chris Woakes has replaced him.
England are all over India at the moment. After the twin blows in form of Rohit Sharma and MS Dhoni, they do not have much batting left. Rahane waging a lone battle here. James Anderson is on fire at the moment.
India continue to struggle as this time it is MS Dhoni who is back in the hut after being caught behind. Full marks to James Anderson, again. He draws the batsman forward, and Dhoni gets an outside edge. India staring at big defeat at the moment.
OUT! MS Dhoni c Buttler b Anderson 6 (11)

Meanwhile in Southampton, the shuttle service that brings people from Southampton Parkway Station to the Ageas Bowl — the stadium practically being in the middle of nowhere — will be started a little earlier today depending on the match situation.  Our man in the ground, Arunabha Sengupta says, the return service starts an hour before the end of the match, with a trickle service from 2:30 pm itself. One wag in fact asked whether it would be from 11:30 am itself!

 The hot-spot replays show Rohit Sharma DID NOT get an outside edge. So where did that sound come from?

There it is! James Anderson claims the key man Rohit Sharma as India continue to lose wickets! Fantastic delivery, outside the off-stump, drawing the batsman forward. Rohit gets an edge but stares at the umpire as if he had not.
OUT! R Sharma c Buttler b Anderson 6 (28)

India were tottering at 112 for four against England on Day Four of the third Test at Southampton, needing 333 runs to win. More importantly, the visitors have just six wickets to protect. England continued their absolute dominance of the Indians, but will be hoping to see the back of the two overnight batsmen, Ajinkya Rahane and Rohit Sharma, early tomorrow morning.

Shikhar Dhawan started the innings with a very positive drive through covers for four, but soon went into a defensive shell. Vijay continued where he left off from the first innings, looking just a little bit disinterested in proceedings. He was soon back in the pavilion after failing to lazily running through for a quick single. Renowned for their ability to play spin, India lost three wickets to Moeen Ali and Joe Root — both primarily batsmen and regarded as ‘part-time’ off-break bowlers.

Ajinkya Rahane was 18 not out and Rohit Sharma, dropped on five, six not out.The most any side has made in the fourth innings to win a Test is the 418 for seven by the West Indies against Australia at St John’s in 2002/03.There was one concerning moment for England after play ended when paceman James Anderson, celebrating his 32nd birthday Wednesday, was spoken to by the umpires after appearing to have words with Rahane. Hi I am Devarchit Varma and I am going to bring you live updates for the fifth and final day. Will the Indian batsmen survive the day or will England level the series by cashing in on the advantage they enjoy now? Let’s find out.
