England need 41 runs to win third Test; Ashwin misses century

Posted on Dec 09, 11:11AM | UNI

England needed 41 runs to complete the formalities of victory in the third Test as they restricted India's second innings to 247 on the final day of the third Test at the Eden Gardens here today.

R Ashwin, whose heroics saved India from the ignominy of an innings defeat, missed a well-deserved century as Jonathan Trott trapped last man Pragyan Ojha(3) on the second over of fifth day's play.

This left Ashwin stranded at 91, nine short of his second Test ton.
