India win third Test against England by 203 runs

India crushed England by 203 runs in the second Test at Trent Bridge on Wednesday.

James Anderson and Adil Rashid managed to stick around long enough to send it to a fifth day but India need only one wicket to seal the win on Wednesday. Kohli hundred in the second innings and Pandya's quickfire 52 not out helped India declare, setting England an impossible target of 521.

In Australia, grounds would normally only charge a gold coin donation if the Test was basically over heading into Day 5, but not at Trent Bridge where fans will still be asked to pay 10 pounds ($17.50).

England´s Jos Buttler (L) is greeted by India´s captain Virat Kohli (C) as he leaves the pitch after losing his wicket for 106 during the fourth day of the third Test between England and India at Trent Bridge in Nottingham, central England on August 21, 2018. "A tough time there", Kohli said in the post-match presentation after the 203-run win over the home team.

Instead England slumped to 66 for four after resuming on 23 without loss - the 31st occasion in their past 62 Test innings since 2016 that they had lost their fourth wicket having scored 100 or fewer runs. On Monday, Kohli completed his 23rd century, which would have been the 24th but for his getting out for 97 in the first innings.

Jos Buttler's century (106 runs) and Ben Stokes' knock of 62 runs were the only positive takeaways for Joe Root's men on Tuesday, with the captain himself being dismissed for an unlucky 13 runs.

"The players are really proud of what they've done in this Test too".

"You look at the second innings and the partnership between Buttler and Stokes and that's a real lesson to our side in how to play Test match cricket".
