India trounced England by an innings and 25 runs on the third day of the fourth and final Test to complete a 3-1 series victory at Narendra Modi Stadium, popularly known as Motera Stadium, in Ahmedeabad on Saturday. With series win India secured its place in the ICC World Test Championships final against New Zealand. If the second Test was a demolition in an evenly poised contest, the third Test is from such a relation. It was annihilation from the start as Ravichandran Ashwin and Axar Patel shattered numerous records as they run riot on England. Axar’s record 11-wicket-haul and Ashwin’s 400th Test wicket were by-products of some classic bowling on probably ….erm.. a dustbowl? Rank-turner? Nevetheless, India’s batsmen could prove themselves just about par to beat the visitor and the credit largely goes to one man, Rohit Sharma, who put up 91 runs from two innings while looking all so comfortable. Rohit finished the match off in style with a massive six over long-on as the roars hit the crescendo!
