MUMBAI, Mar 22 (AFP): Andrew Flintoff and Shaun Udal made a mockery of India's famed batting line-up as a depleted England squared the series with a crushing 212-run victory in the third and final Test here Wednesday.
It was England's first Test win in India since 1985.
India were shot out for a pathetic 100 off just 48.2 overs in their second innings while chasing a stiff 313-run target on the fifth and last day. They lost their last seven wickets for 25 in a dramatic afternoon collapse.
England had lost the second Test by nine wickets at Mohali after drawing the first at Nagpur.
Fast bowler Flintoff finished with 3-14 off 11 tight overs in his first Test series as captain and was brilliantly supported by off-spinner Udal (4-14), playing only his fourth Test at the age of 37.
