England thrashed India by an innings and 76 runs in 3rd test match

 England fast bowlers dominated the test match against strong Indian batting line up

England crushed India in the third test match at Leeds with a huge margin of an innings and 76 runs. India lost 8 wickets for 63 runs in the morning session on Day 4 to hand England a series leveling win in Leeds on Saturday.

England fast bowlers displayed a brilliant show of swing bowling. Indian batting once again collapsed under pressure. English pacer Ollie Robinson took five wickets to cause the collapse. The strong Indian battling line collapsed like a house of cards or wall of sand. 

India suffered an innings and 76 run loss against England after being bowled out for 278 in their second innings in the third cricket Test. England thus leveled the five-match series 1-1. Resuming at an overnight score of 215 for 2, India's second innings folded in 99.3 overs with England pacer Ollie Robinson claiming five wickets.

 India was bundled out for a paltry 78 in their first innings on the opening day. England then posted 432 in their first innings to take a mammoth lead of 354 runs. India lost their last eight wickets for 63 runs in the morning session on Day 4 to hand England a convincing win. Earlier, India had beaten England by 151 runs in the second Test at Lord's. Brief Scores: India 78 all out and 278 all out in 99.3 overs (Cheteshwar Pujara 91, Ollie Robinson 5/65). England 1st innings: 432 all out in 132.2 overs (Joe Root 121, Mohammed Shami 4/95)

England, yet again, produced a brilliant spell of fast bowling to dismantle the Indian batting line-up, taking eight wickets in the first session on Day 4 to bowl out the visitors for 278 in the second innings and win the 3rd Test by an innings and 76 runs.
