A dominant India on Tuesday handed England a massive 317-run defeat in the second Test to level the four-match series 1-1. After setting an improbable 482-run target, India dismissed England for 164 just after lunch on Day 4 in Chennai. But Ravichandran Ashwin, the hero of the match, missed out on his opportunity to become only the fourth player in the history of cricket to hit a century and take ten wickets. His 106 in India's second innings and figures of 5/43 and 3/53 helped India humiliate England after losing the series opener by 227 runs. The third match, a day-nighter, will be played at the brand new Sardar Patel Stadium in Ahmedabad, starting February 24. The victory was crucial for India in the context of the ICC World Test Championship as they need to win the series at least with a 2-1 margin or better to make the cut for the title clash against New Zealand. England began at the overnight score of 53/3 but their batsmen struggled to counter the spin challenge posed by the home bowlers. Ashwin first sent back Dan Lawrence (26) and then removed Ben Stokes (8) to add to the misery of the visitors. Axar Patel (5/60) enticed a lofted sweep from Ollie Pope (12), who was caught by Ishant Sharma. Left-arm wrist spinner Kuldeep Yadav got his first wicket when he had Ben Foakes (2) caught by Patel. England captain Joe Root (33) kept one end tight in the morning session but struggled to handle ball from Patel that bounced a bit too much and was caught in the slip region. Once Root was back in the pavilion, it was not difficult for India to wrap up the proceedings though Moeen Ali hit an attacking 43. Catch highlights and cricket score of the second Test here.
