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
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!
chipped high in the air down the ground ... and far enough to beat the fielder, but not quite far enough for the boundary
Finn fails to read the variation, and is struck high on the pad
There's a slip and a short leg in now.
Finn lunges forward in defence
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!
the ball spins past Meaker's inside edge to strike him on the thigh
Ashwin to help finish things off.
Swann will go down swinging! He skips down the track and deposits one over long on
turned away for a single this time
nudged defensively away into the leg side
beaten once again, playing a nothing shot outside off
more spin and bounce! And Meaker is well and truly beaten, poking forward
got him! Wonderful bowling from Jadeja. He ripped this one pretty hard, it gripped and zipped off the surface to bounce and touch Patel's glove on the way through to Dhoni
England have got to take the batting powerplay now. How will they play this?
And that, I believe, is drinks at Eden Gardens.
flat and full from Raina, and Swann misses a glance to leg. He's struck on the pad, but the ball had landed well outside leg
knocked back down the track to the bowler
punched through cover off the back foot
a touch of grip off the surface for Raina, enough to beat Patel's swish to leg and strike him on the pad
picked up to wide long on! Patel is still fighting for England. He comes down the track and lofts one with good timing and placement
Patel skips down but Raina spots him coming and fires it down quicker, drawing hurried defence
a chopped cut bounces into the covers
swept hard, and the fielder dives over the top of it at fine leg to allow the boundary
