Posted by

England overcome India’s resistance in the third Test at Headingley, winning by an innings and 76 runs to even the series at 1-1. On the fourth morning, Ollie Robinson effectively used the second new ball to claim 5-65 and push India to 278 all out.

Robinson withdrew both overnight batters after India threatened to make things difficult for England by going to 215-2 on day three.

Virat Kohli, who had already challenged being ruled out caught behind, edged to first slip for 55 after Cheteshwar Pujara was lbw without playing a ball for 91.

As the game progressed, India began to lose their last eight wickets for 63 runs, including three for two at one point.

It was Joe Root’s 27th Test victory as captain, and it came in front of his home fans. The fourth Test begins on Thursday at The Oval, with the series concluding on September 10 at Old Trafford.
