Victory in Nagpur

The outcome was set up for a draw on this wicket, signalling a win for England at the conclusion of this hard fought enthralling series.

Cricket memorabilia will be in demand from all four test matches commemorating a first England win in 28 years.

Jonathan Trott and Ian Bell put on 208 runs on the final day both scoring centuries ensuring England's first Test series victory in India since 1985.

England did well to come back from a 1st test, 9 wicket defeat in Ahmedabad winning the series on a wicket which did no favours for players or spectators

This result is sure give the Australians something to think about prior to the back to back Ashes series in 2013, Australia visit India early next year and that will give some good pointers of what is to come.

Cook, was named man of the series after scoring three hundreds and a total 562 runs in the series his top score was 190 giving him an incredible average of 80.28. Pujara scored 438 with a high of 206 only playing 7 innings opposed to Cook's 8, Pujara ended up with the higher average of 87.60.

Panesar took 17 wickets 3 behind both Swann and Ojha however unfortunately he was only brought into play for 3 matches the 1st match may have been so different if he had been selected earlier.

James Anderson the tourist’s thirty year old pace man was awarded man of match at Nagpur taking 4 early order wickets for 81 runs in India 1st innings, this played a key part in England’s success; it was a surprise on a wicket where the spinners were expected to excel.

The decision review system has been focused on after Cook received two poor decisions it remains to be seen whether the India Board of Control will upgrade their policies.

I am hoping to have some cricket collectables from each match, signed scorecards, autographs and presentations.
