    England win

    England players celebrate their thumping 319-run over India in the second Test at Trent Bridge. England now lead the four-Test series 2-0 and are closing in on the No. 1 Test ranking.

    11.04 pm – The final post on this blog is reserved for the Bell run-out reversal by Dhoni and the Indian team at Tea-time yesterday. Asked about the incident at the post-match presentation ceremony, England captain Andrew Strauss was all praise for his Indian counterpart and said: “It was a very commendable decision. It was the right thing for cricket. As captain it is a very difficult decision to take and I think Mahendra has set a great example for me and other Test captains.”

    Cricket has always known to be a gentleman's game and keeping the spirit of the game Indian skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni recalled Ian Bell - who was controversially run out off the final ball before tea for 137 during the second Test at Trent Bridge. Bell's 15th Test hundred guided England back into a position of strength in the match after being bowled out for 221 in the first innings. The day was filled with all kind of drama...let's have a look what British press had to say about the eventful day...

    Jonathan Agnew of BBC feels England batsman Ian Bell was lucky India changed their review.

    Tweets on England’s dominant position at the end of Day 3 –

    @cricketwallah - India's bowling has been plundered for over 400 runs today. Harbhajan has conceded only 47 of these, but is the biggest worry in the attack.

    @cricketaakash - One could understand this scoring rate if we'd bowled 140 overs..tired bowlers, flat track etc. But not after 75 overs on a responsive pitch

    @warne888 - England just scored 400 runs in a day - tremendous batting - India have been very poor today & do not look like the number 1 side in world !

    @ZaltzCricket - India now officially bowling total garbage. Their heads couldn't be any more down if they were the French royal family in the early 1790s.

    @cricketaakash - Fast bowlers needed support (not so much wickets) but unfortunately it wasn't forthcoming.
