England spin their way closer to victory

Cricket batting portrait
Kevin Pietersen's brilliant 186 helped England attain a lead of 86 runs.Thanks to Pragyan Ojha's another five wicket hall India were able to wrap up the England innings quicker than expected.However when India came into bat they lost a lot of wickets quickly thanks to a brilliant bowling by Monty Panesar and Graeme Swan. India have ended the day with the score of 117 for the loss of 7 wickets and are in a lead of 31 runs.It would take something really special tomorrow from Gautam Gambhir(who played quite well)and Harbhajan Singh to help India towards a respectable total which gives them some hope of a comeback because one thing is for sure it will have to be a miracle for this match to be a draw.

Highlights of the day:


Kevin Pietersen - 186(233)

Alastair Cook - 122(270)

Monty Panesar - 5 Wickets

Graeme Swan - 2 Wickets


Pragyan Ojha - 5 Wickets

Gautam Gambhir - 53(109)*
