India Vs England 2nd Test – India gain big lead and control at Mohali

Indian team who bounce back into the test match after striking in the last two overs of the day yesterday by removing both set batsman just before close of play. First it was K.Pietersen who was given out lbw for well made 144 runs then A.Mishra removed A.Flintoff on the last ball of the day on 62 runs to give India an edge.

On forth day due to heavy fog play get underway after waiting for two long hours. But Indian team just took 45 minutes to polish the England tail to restrict the visitors for 302 runs. Harbhajan Singh who didn't bowled well yesterday was looks in super bowling form as he picked up three wickets of four to fall on the fourth day morning. Zaheer Khan also picked one to get three wickets in the inning.

Gautam Gambhir (8) and Virender Sehwag (1) were in the middle at the lunch break, having stretched India's overall lead to 160 runs after the hosts had bowled out England for 302 in a misty morning.

England has lost their last six wickets for just 22 runs and they have only themselves to blame. Fourth day morning Indian captain M.S.Dhoni started the proceeding with Spin colleagues Harbhajan and Amit Mishra and the off-spinner struck with his seventh delivery of the day which kissed Matt Prior's (2 run) blade and Mahendra Singh Dhoni neatly collected the catch down the legside. Harbhajan Singh claimed his second wicket of the day in the very next over by removing Stuart Broad (1 runs). He was out by a terrible judge of the turn as he left the ball alone only to see it straighten and knock back his off-stump.

    Think we can see now in hindsight all the turmoil that was going on in the England camp.

    Still, there is so many positives to be taken from the tests by the Indians.

    With Australia as well seeming to eb in a bit of trouble, can India step up and become the worlds best?
