4+b
Over 9.4 R Ashwin to Nick Compton , Four Byes
Gets forward and glances the quicker one off his pads to fine leg for a boundary. Huge scream with that from Compton as he got the winning runs! Beg your pardon that was given as byes.

So England win by 10 wickets to level the 4-match Series 1-1.
Fabulous performance from England to level the series. India has a lot of revamp to do before the Third Test.

MS Dhoni says that Monty Panesar with the pace he bowled made it difficult for the Indian batsmen. To some extent he says that the Indian spinners were disappointing. He says that 200 in the second innings would have been a good score to defend. Five more days and the two teams meet again for the Third Test at Kolkata.

Alastair Cook is a proud man leading England from the front with another superb century. This match, Pietersen played to his potential and took the game away from India. Fantastic and great to watch is what Cook says on KP's batting. Brilliant performance says Cook on Monty and others. Cook thanked the English fans who showed tremendous support by coming here all the way.

The Man of the Match is Kevin Pietersen for his destructive knock of 186. He gets a prize money of Rs. 1 lakh. KP says that this knock of 186 is the best of his career now that England have won the Test. On Cook, he says that the left-hander will break all the England records! KP thanks the team management and his colleagues for soothing out all the issues he has been facing prior to this series. KP says that he has decided to trust his defence in this Test match and not to play sweep shots early on.
