Ahmedabad: Nov 19, 2012

 

India will aim to win the first Test against England at Ahmedabad in the second session of Day Five after bowling out the visitors for 406 in their second innings.

 

England, with the help of captain Alastair Cook (178) and Matt Prior (91), wiped off their deficit last night after being asked to follow on by India. But the duo, who shared a 157-run partnership to save England the blushes, could not last long on Day Five as the Indian bowlers polished off remaining five wickets in quick succession.

 

Pragyan Ojha (four for 120) took the prize wickets of Cook and Prior in the morning, taking his match tally to nine wickets. Umesh Yadav got three wickets, while Zaheer Khan took two to end the first sessions with five wickets and 66 runs.

 

Ravichandran Ashwin, who had been wicketless so far in the second innings punished Graeme Swann’s extravagance as the latter went for a reverse-sweep. Swann was just getting set with Bresnan to take England’s lead past the 100 mark and will rue his shot.

 

Brief Scores: India 521 for 8 dec. (Cheteshwar Pujara 206, Virender Sehwag 117; Graeme Swann 5 for 144) trail England 191 (Alastair Cook 41, Kevin Pietersen 17; Pragyan Ojha 5 for 45, R Ashwin 3 for 80) and 406 (Alastair Cook 176, Matt Prior 91; Pragyan Ojha 4 for 120) by 76 runs.
