India thrashes England by nine wickets in Ahmedabad Test

New Delhi, Nov 19(ANI): India has won the first Test match against England in Ahmedabad by nine wickets.

Chasing a meek target of 77 runs in the fourth innings, Indian batsmen started aggressively, and achieved the target in 15.3 overs with the loss of Virender Sehwag's wicket.

Cheteshwar Pujara, who scored a brilliant double century in the first innings, again played delightfully, and remained not out on 41.

England batting was poor through out the Test match barring captain Alastair Cook and wicket keeper Mat Prior's efforts in both the innings.

England scored an impressive 406 in the second innings, mainly due to inspiring batting performances from Cook (176) and Prior (91), however, after being asked to follow on, it was too big a mountain to climb for the former world number Test team. (ANI)
