India vs England Mumbai Test: M S Dhoni suffers humiliating defeat on spin-friendly track
The result would also be sweet victory for former Pakistani spinner Mushtaq, England spin bowling coach, whose inputs ensured this win for England. His tenure in England was not devoid of controversy, but now, all surely must be forgiven and forgotten. The victory itself will be much celebrated by England.
Scorecard England beat India
Resuming at a precarious 117 for seven after conceding a vital 86-run first innings lead, the Indians were skittled out for a paltry 141 within an hour's play on the fourth morning, leaving the visitors an easy target of 57 for victory which they achieved without much fuss with more than five sessions to spare.
Only Gautam Gambhir (65) provided a semblance of resistance before being the last man to be dismissed though television replays indicated that he was distinctly unlucky to be ruled out.
Left-arm spinner Monty Panesar was the pick of the English bowlers with figures of 22-3-81-6 for a match haul of 11 wickets while Graeme Swann snapped up the remaining four wickets in a fine exhibition of spin bowling.
The two England openers Alastair Cook (18) and Nick Compton (30) overhauled the target in just 9.4 overs to complete the rout in a match which was dominated by the visitors in conditions which were tailor-made for the home team spinners.
The moment of triumph came through four byes off R Ashwin which triggered off scenes of jubilation in the England dressing
