India Win in England

India won the three-test nPower series against England in England by 1-0, courtesy of two drawn matches and a win in the second test at Trent Bridge.

India won their first series in England since 1986, albeit 1-0, after England held on for a draw on the final day of the last Test at The Oval. It was a fitting denouement to a hard fought and evenly contested series as India’s bowlers seldom slackened in their effort to force a win whereas England’s batsmen displayed remarkable application. Kevin Pietersen helped himself to a workmanlike century and provided the backbone for England’s resistance as they ended on 369 for 6. On a day when wickets fell at regular enough intervals to keep India interested till the very end, England held on, but Michael Vaughan’s unbeaten home record slipped from his grasp.
