Englishmen fired all their cylinders to win the 3rd and final Test match which was played in Mumbai. India requiring 313 runs for victory were bowled out for 100 runs just after lunch in the final day giving a 212 run victory to England. English side had to push young lads in due to the abscence of couple of senior and experienced players. All eyes were on newly appointed English captain Andrew Flintoff. The first test ended in a draw and India won the 2nd one. Series ended in draw after this comprehensive victory by England. Andrew Flintoff's fine performance with both bat and ball earned him the Man of the Match and the Man of the Series awards. Debutant Owais Shah made an impressive knock who came in to replace the injured Cook. James Anderson who replaced injured Harmison also made a big impact bagging 6 wickets in this match. One-dayers will kick off on the 28th of March. Lets wait see and who will come on top.
