There’s been a great deal of chatter about whether India missed a trick by keeping R Ashwin on the bench. The ball is spinning big thanks to the foot-marks, as Mohammed Shami found out when Moeen Ali’s ripper turned viciously to exploit the gap between his bat and pad. The slim chance of India eking out a draw or an improbable win out of this match vanished into thin air as England caught the middle-order by the scruff of its neck.
Oh Mo you beauty 😍
