Where India beat England

England and India appear to be evenly matched sides and what proved decisive was how each side responded when things weren't going their way.

When the ball was swinging

In this Test, ball dominated bat at first. That England slumped to a small total was predictable, but it could have been so different, as India's innings showed.

Dinesh Karthik and Wasim Jaffer protected the Indian middle-order from the new ball and Tendulkar and Ganguly duly prospered. Another ten or twenty runs in England's opening partnership could have led to another 30 or 40 from their middle order or who knows what.

The second new ball

During India's innings, three wickets had fallen when the second new ball became available. England didn't manage to take a wicket for another 27 overs after taking it.

In England's second innings, India found themselves in the exact same position. Three wickets were down when they took the second new ball. Two wickets fell within a couple of overs and two more shortly afterwards. England's fightback had been unceremoniously halted.
