And with that they have notched up yet another home series win! 238 was always going to be hard total to defend, England hung in there till the end, they tried their hearts out and exerted maximum pressure but the batsmen were up to the task and in the end they reached the target with 2.4 overs to spare. Do write in with any feedback at http://www.cricinfo.com/commentary.html For the latest bulletin on today's play, features and other stories please visit www.cricinfo.com Sehwag and Dravid started off well and they laid the foundation for a clinical run chase, England bowlers struggled to produce the breakthroughs when needed and the game quickly slipped away from them with Yuvraj and Raina getting into the act. Yuvraj Singh gets the man of the match award for the two key wickets he took earlier in the day and the 48 runs he scored. That's all we have for you today, until next time this is Sajan Nair signing off.
