England win by 212 runs and they level the series 1-1. They played like champions from day one and kept up the intensity throughout the game, under pressure team India crumbled and the result is a crunching series leveling win. Flintoff lead from the front and all the players joined in, the batsmen played their part and the bowlers hunted in packs to great success through out the series. In the end everything fell in place for the team who were considered as under-dogs at the start of the series and they came back brilliantly from behind, to level the series Dravid's decision to bowl first was a brave one but he got no support from the rest of the team and in the end it was a forgettable performance from the Indians. Man of the Match: Andrew Flintoff. Man of the Series: Andrew Flintoff That brings us to the end of the live coverage, hope you have enjoyed it as much as we did bringing it to you, until next time this is Sajan Nair signing off on behalf of the entire team - Cheers!

  • Shaun Udal's last-chance saloon

    The former England offspinner relives the Mumbai Test of 2006, which turned out to be his last - and most memorable

  • The biggest cricket fan in India

    My first trip to India to cover cricket was in 2006. I went as a freelance photographer and that meant for the most part I had to try and shoot photos from positions away from the agency photographers

  • Who cares if the ship is sinking?

    Another day, another defeat, another wave of deafening indifference. England and one-day cricket don't even pretend to mix at the moment

  • Scrapping in the Ring of Fire

    No team can lay claim to greatness until they've turned in a good performance on the subcontinent, and yet, England have done just that, powered by a squad of reserves
