India vs England: Awesome Ojha-Ashwin duo compels England to follow-on
Ahmedabad: The Indian bowlers were on a killing spree on Saturday against the visiting England team. They began the third day of the ongoing Test match from they had left on Friday tumbling the English batting line up. The brand new spinning duo of R Ashwin and left arm spinner Pragyan Ojha displayed some brilliance with their spinning tricks on the third day of the first Test match at Sardar Patel Stadium in Motera, Ahmedabad on Saturday. The England concluded the first innings at 191/10 when they were asked to bat again.

Showing good nerves in the second innings, the England openers fought hard to show some reluctance and gave steady start to the team.

It was orthodox left-arm spinner Pragyan Ojha who harmed the England batting lineup the most, with his five-wicket haul. Right-arm spinner Ravichandran Ashwin also played a decent role in the destruction, bagging three important English wickets. Strike bowler Zaheer Khan and young paceman Umesh Yadav earned one wicket each to their names.

England managed to reach a total of 191 runs in the first innings and were compelled to follow-on. The total on the scoreboard was the result of the heroics of wicket-keeper batsman Matt Prior lower down the order, who built some much needed partnerships with tail-under Tim Bresnan and Stuart Broad.
Prior played a fighting 48 runs knock with seven fours, while Bresnan (19 off 60) and Broad (25 off 23) helped him on his way but it was not enough to avoid the follow-on. Skipper Alastair Cook tried to play a promising innings scoring 41 off 109 balls but failed to make it big at the end.

Following-on England team openers gave a solid start to their team and remained 111 without losing a wicket at the end of day 3. They are still trailing by 219 runs. Captain Cook scored 74 runs off 124 balls with 13 fours and his opening partner Nick Compton played a steady innings of 34 runs off 104 balls.

Earlier, India reached a mammoth total of 521 runs in the first innings with the help of the new wall of India Cheteshwar Pujara's double ton. Smashing opener batsman Virender Sehwag also helped the total with his run-a-ball 117 runs. Experienced southpaw Yuvraj Singh played a handy knock of 74 runs in middle-order.
