A rejuvenated India have beaten England by 203 runs in the third Test at Trent Bridge to stay alive in the five-match series, courtesy a sensational five-wicket haul from Jasprit Bumrah in his comeback game on day four. To understand the weightage of that sentence requires plenty of introspection and appreciation, which in the days leading up to the next Test at Southampton will undoubtedly occupy reams and reams of copy.

Nine wickets down with 311 on the board, England resumed on the final morning and lasted 17 balls. R Ashwin took the last wicket, bringing to end a dogged 11 from James Anderson.

This win is special, for many reasons, and rightfully earns its place in India’s previous Test wins in England: at The Oval in 1971, at Lord’s and Headingley in 1986, at Headingley in 2002, Trent Bridge in 2007, and Lord’s in 2014.

Brief scores: India 329 (Kohli 97, Rahane 81) & 352/7 declared (Kohli 106, Pandya 52*) beat England 161 (Pandya 5/28) & 317 (Buttler 106, Stokes 62, Bumrah 5/85) by 203 runs
