England win Mumbai test

Mumbai: India’s ploy to prepare a spinning track backfired heavily as a spirited England inflicted a humiliating 10-wicket victory on the clueless hosts in the second cricket Test to level the four-match series 1-1 here.

Resuming at a precarious 117 for seven after conceding a vital 86-run first innings lead, the Indians were skittle out for a paltry 141 within an hour’s play on the fourth morning, leaving the visitors an easy target of 57 for victory, which they achieved without much fuss with more than five sessions  to spare.
