New Delhi: In a stunning turnaround, the Indian team today registered a thumping 203 runs victory over England on the final day of the third Test at Trent Bridge Cricket Ground.

Chasing a mammoth target of 521 runs, the England side were bundled out for 317 as none of their batsmen. All thanks to bowler Jasprit Bumrah who scalped a haul of five wickets in the second innings to push India towards the victory.

Bumrah picked up some crucial wickets in the form of Jos Buttler, Jonny Bairstow, and Chris Woakes to deny England any chance of making a comeback after losing early wickets in the second innings.

Another impressive bowling performance came from Ishant Sharma who sent Alastair Cook and Keaton Jennings back to pavilion on the crucial fourth day of the match.

Asked to bat first, India had set the tone right from the first innings where Skipper Virat Kohli and right-hand batsman Ajinkya Rahane built a match-saving partnership of 159 runs to take India's scorecard to a safe total of 329.

Kohli was named as Man of the Match for his brilliant revival knock of 97 runs in first innings and a spectacular century in the second innings.
