England crushed India by an innings and 54 runs to win the fourth Test at Old Trafford on Saturday.

Victory, achieved with more than two days to spare, put England 2-1 up in the five-match series ahead of next week's concluding Test at The Oval.

India lost six wickets for 52 runs as they suffered a spectacular collapse after tea on Saturday's third day, with off-spinner Moeen Ali taking four for 39.

Pace bowling all-rounder Chris Jordan took the last two Indian wickets in as many balls, yorking last man Pankaj Singh for a golden duck as India were bowled out for 161 in their second innings. – AFP
