With all the hullabaloo following the third days events. England literally thrashed the number 1 team India in the 3rd test. I guess it eventually did not matter whether Bell was out or not. India were 319 runs behind when they were bundled out in under 4 days. Till now India has not scored even 300 runs in any of its innings. May be Sehwag’s entry will augur well. Indian bowling lacked the penetration and Zaheer’s absence was sorely felt, Only Sachin Tendulkar offered any semblance of resistance, who under the mother of all stress of achieving hundred 100s was out after scoring a valiant 56. Final score in the second test – England 221 & 544 ; India 288 & 158 (47.4 overs).
