[FLASHBACK] England whitewash India
The euphoria of winning the 2011 World Cup on home soil had hardly settled down by the time that MS Dhoni's men embarked on the tour of England, but as the Test series went on, that joy turned to disappointment as Andrew Strauss' team outwitted India in all the four Tests.
England drove the last nail into India's coffin in this series at The Oval on August 22, 2011; when they won the fourth Test by an innings and 8 runs and inflicted a 4-0 whitewash.
Ian Bell was India's chief tormentor as he scored his maiden double century and also put on a mammoth 350-runs stand with Kevin Pietersen.
Rahul Dravid's 146* in the first innings helped India make 300 for the first and only time in the series. In the second innings, Sachin Tendulkar and Amit Mishra's 144-runs partnership with Amit Mishra raised India's hopes of salvaging a draw, but the then No. 1 ranked Test team lost their last six wickets for 21 runs with Graeme Swann running through the middle and late order.
This was England's first series whitewash in seven years and also made them the new No. 1 ranked Test team. [TAG: CYCSPL]
