India win by 9 wickets and the they go one up in the series with one more Test to go.

Handshakes all around and the players walk back to the pavilion, chasing 144 could have been a tricky affair but Jaffer and Sehwag started off well and Dravid continued with the good work once Jaffer was out, to start with Sehwag played an uncharacteristic subdued innings and towards the end opened up nicely, in the end it took them just 33 overs to wrap it up.

Sehwag getting back to form was the highlight of the day along with Munaf Patel's fiery spell of seam bowling.

Anil Kumble gets the man of the match award for his nine wickets.

The young England team crumbled under pressure and they have lot of thinking to do as we move to Bombay for the third and final match of the series, that match starts on the 18th of March (Saturday) and we will be on live as and when the first ball is bowled, be sure to join us then - Cheers!
