Commentary

END OF OVER:
37 | 2 Runs 2 Wkts | ENG: 176/10

  • GP Swann10 (11b)
  • R Ashwin9-0-28-3
  • RA Jadeja8-0-33-4

What a stunning collapse from England. They appeared to be cruising at 129 for 0, but Cook's dismissal really turned the match. From there, they collapsed to 176 all out, the spinners claiming nine of the wickets to fall. Jadeja and Ashwin, as they have done all series, caused major problems. Fittingly, it was MS Dhoni who held the catch to win the match. He's had a superb series. Payback indeed. Read all about it in Andrew Miller's final report.

"We were in with a shout there, and we were blown away at the end," says a visibly disappointed Alastair Cook. "Very disappointing. We know that you can lose wickets in cluster, we seem to have lost 10 there in a cluster. Credit to the way they bowled, and we played a couple of poor shots. There have been a few positives out of this series, Steven Finn's bowling for example."

Ravindra Jadeja is the Man of the Match, for his runs, and especially for his wickets. "There was turn in the wicket, so I was just trying to bowl line and length, stump to stump," he says. "There was a little bit of dew on the ground, but we kept drying the ball after every delivery. I've been working hard in the nets."

MS Dhoni is the Man of the Series. "It was, to some extent, an ugly looking wicket. You were never really set, and it was difficult to score runs. We were fortunate to score 270 on a wicket like this, 240 to 245 was in our mind. We had a bit of a partnership in the middle, and later on with Ravindra Jadeja and Praveen Kumar. I want to stay till the end, and whatever's in my area I try to hit to the boundary. If it's not in my area i just try and get a single. They got off to a very good start, and I was just waiting for it to spin, that's why i delayed taking the powerplay. We've really improved in the fielding department too."

That's all from your commentary team today. Thanks for joining us, and don't forget that England's tour isn't quite over yet - they've still got a Twenty20 on Saturday. See you then!

Ashwin to Finn, OUT, there we go, end of the match and the clean sweep for England. Finn sweeps across the carrom ball and the top edge loops straight up to be easily taken by Dhoni
36.5
2
Ashwin to Finn, 2 runs, chipped high in the air down the ground ... and far enough to beat the fielder, but not quite far enough for the boundary
36.4
0
Ashwin to Finn, no run, Finn fails to read the variation, and is struck high on the pad

There's a slip and a short leg in now.

36.3
0
Ashwin to Finn, no run, Finn lunges forward in defence
36.2
W
Ashwin to Meaker, OUT, again Meaker misses the glance to leg, this time to a quicker ball, and is struck in front. There's a huge appeal, and he's sent on his way!
36.1
0
Ashwin to Meaker, no run, the ball spins past Meaker's inside edge to strike him on the thigh

Ashwin to help finish things off.
