India have pulled themselves back into the series with 203-run win.

India completed a huge 203-run win in the third Test against England at Trent Bridge as Ravi Ashwin dismissed James Anderson in the third over of the final day on Wednesday.

Chasing a mammoth 521 for victory in their final innings in the third Test, England resumed from their overnight score of 311-9 with Adil Rashid (30) and James Anderson (8) as the unbeaten batsmen.

Jos Buttler (106) and Ben Stokes (62) staged a minor fightback for the hosts on day four to frustrate the India before Jasprit Bumrah (5-85) brought the visitors roaring back with the second new ball.

In the first innings, India skipper Virat Kohli (97) had helped the visitors post 329 before England were bowled out for 161 in their reply. Kohli was on song in the second innings as well with his 23rd Test ton guiding India to 352-7 (declared) as England were set an improbable target.

India have now made it 1-2 in the five-match series after the visitors suffered losses at Edgbaston and Lord’s.
