Cricket Video - England Make History With Test Victory Over India In Kolkata - Cricket World TV
A cricket video for Cricket World TV about the latest cricket news as we look back on England making history with a seven-wicket Test victory over India in the third Test in Kolkata.
For the first time since the 1976/77 season, England have now won back-to-back Test matches in India and lead the four-match series 2-1 meaning a draw in Nagpur will hand them a first series win in India since 1985.
The victory at Eden Gardens was set up by Alastair Cook's 190 and then fine bowling in both Indian innings, culminating in a spell on day four when the hosts lost six wickets for 36 runs, leaving England a modest victory target despite Ravichandran Ashwin's battling 91 not out.
England lost three wickets en route but made it comfortably enough and India have responded by axing senior players Zaheer Khan, Harbhajan and Yuvraj Singh with Parvinder Awana, Ravi Jadeja and Piyush Chawla replacing them.
For now, Sachin Tendulkar survives but his lean run of form has raised further questions about whether the time is now right for him to bring his illustrious career to an end and even the leadership of Mahendra Singh Dhoni is also being questioned, as is Duncan Fletcher's role as coach.
