    Well,your prediction about a draw blew away in the wind (or gale considering England bowling performance).You under-estimated your bowling attack,undoubly second best in the world after SA.
    This is how the ESPN commentator described the final delivery of the match
    Commentary: 96.3 Broad to Sharma, OUT , that is it! Broad is the man that finishes it and fittingly, it's a full straight ball that earns him, and England, the Test. The home side have been incredible today, bowled and fielded with crackling intensity and on a flat deck just kept hammering their way through what's often described as the best batting line-up in the world. Bowden gets the chance to give the final decision, much as he likes it you suspect, as the delivery kept a bit low and struck Ishant bang in front.
    Congrats ENGLAND

    Well our bowling can be unpredictable. Didn't under estimate our bowling, this morning odds on for the draw. I thought India would hold out and with it being at Lords.
    We deserved it though, too good for India. To win by that much after declaring in both innings agaist the number 1 team in the world, brilliant.

    KP got man of the match, cant argue with that maybe Broad, but if he didn't get that 202 in first innings it could of been a very different match. Different innings from him too, the way he scrapped didn't lose his patience for his century, and from 150 started having fun with the bat hitting 50 off so many balls.

    1-0 in the series 3 to play. Closing in on number 1 ranking

    Hope to come back strong in the remaining test....

    India bowler Zaheer Khan has been ruled out of Friday's second Test against England because of a hamstring injury.

    The 32-year-old left-arm pace bowler picked up the injury during the first Test at Lord's last week.

    England have concerns over Chris Tremlett, who pulled up with back and hamstring trouble on Thursday, for the match at Trent Bridge in Nottingham.

    "We expect him to be fit but obviously we'll see in the morning," said England captain Andrew Strauss.

    To add to their options, England called up Middlesex pace bowler Steven Finn on Thursday evening, and the 22-year-old will be in competition with Tim Bresnan for the final place in the side should Tremlett be ruled out.

    And Finn's added pace and bounce - like Tremlett he is 6ft 7in and seven inches taller than Bresnan - could see him selected if a change is required and the selectors want more of a like-for-like replacement.

    Tremlett, who took four wickets in England's 196-run win over India in the first Test and took Test best figures of 6-48 against Sri Lanka earlier in the summer, appeared to be carrying a hamstring injury as he bowled during the tourists' second innings at Lord's.

    He had already missed training on Wednesday with a tight hamstring and only netted briefly at Trent Bridge on Thursday.

    But Strauss, speaking earlier in the day, added: "I think he's fine, obviously he's had a bit of a niggle with his hamstring.

    "At the moment we expect him to be fit but obviously like all these things we'll see in the morning - we're confident he should be OK.

    "You've always got to weigh these things in, it's a short turn-around between Test matches but we're not going to pick someone in the side unless we're sure he is 100% fit and able to get through the full five days."

    While England wait on Tremlett, India will definitely be without Zaheer. The left-armer Zaheer impressed initially at Lord's with an excellent new-ball spell which saw him dismiss both England openers, Strauss and Alastair Cook, before pulling up clutching his hamstring in his 14th over.

    India captain Mahendra Dhoni said: "It's always good to have Zaheer in the side because he is our most experienced bowler, especially when it comes to England, but I think he is ruled out of this game.

    "It's a bit disappointing not to have him for selection but it is something that is beyond our control and it gives a chance to the other bowlers to prove their mettle when it comes to international cricket."

    Despite missing out at Trent Bridge, Dhoni is confident that Zaheer will be fit enough to play in the third Test, starting at Edgbaston on 10 August.

    "We are expecting that. It is something we can't be 100% sure about, but most likely it seems he will," Dhoni added.

    England (from): Andrew Strauss (capt), Alastair Cook, Jonathan Trott, Kevin Pietersen, Ian Bell, Eoin Morgan, Matt Prior (wk), Tim Bresnan, Stuart Broad, Graeme Swann, Chris Tremlett, James Anderson, Steven Finn.

    India (from): Mahendra Dhoni (capt, wk), Abhinav Mukund, Gautam Gambhir, Rahul Dravid, Sachin Tendulkar, VVS Laxman, Suresh Raina, Yuvraj Singh, Harbhajan Singh, Praveen Kumar, Ishant Sharma, Sreesanth, Munaf Patel.

    @Paul Yes Bresnan is definitely good....
    I wonder who will come in place for Zaheer to lead India's pace with Ishant Sharma
    Could be Munaf Patel/Sreesanth or any other surprise,...
