England: 319 and 223 for 10 (Root 66, Ali 37, Ishant 74/7) lost to India: 295 and 342 by 95 runs

India waited over 1300 days and 15 tests for their first Test victory overseas since defeating West Indies at Jamaica way back in June 2011. Finally they ended their wait at the Lord’s cricket ground by defeating England by 95 runs. After setting a target of 319, India stroke back late on day 4 by picking four wickets and set themselves up for a victory on the final day.

Even though England frustrated India in the first session, Moeen Ali got out in a weird fashion to Ishant Sharma in the last ball before Lunch. By then England needed 146 runs to win in two sessions with five wickets in hand. After Lunch, Joe Root and Matt Prior started briskly and smashed the short deliveries to the boundaries. Even then, MS Dhoni and Ishant Sharma persisted with men back at leg side boundaries as he bowled short at the batsmen consistently.

Ishant had Matt Prior caught at deep mid-wicket by Murali Vijay and in the very next over, he struck twice. First he had Ben Stokes for a duck as he top edged Ishant Sharma to Cheteshwar Pujara at mid-wicket followed by the dismissal of well-set Joe Root a ball later.

Ishant came back in his next over to send Stuart Broad back to the pavilion after the latter was caught behind by MS Dhoni. India completed their formalities and won their first match overseas when Anderson was run out by Jadjea to begin Indian celebrations. Joe Root was pick of the English batsmen with a well-made 66 and Ishant Sharma produced a brilliant spell and finished with 7 for 74 runs.
