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.
