India were bowled out for just for 94 in only 29.2 overs on day three – Chris Jordan cashing in a career-best four for 18 after James Anderson and Stuart Broad had taken out the early order – as the home side won by an innings and 244 runs at The Oval.

England had earlier posted 486 in reply to India’s first-innings 148, with Joe Root (149 not out) helping his side to a lead of 338.

For Alastair Cook the impressive series win is evidence of a remarkable turnaround for him and his team. A month ago they suffered an embarrassing loss at Lord’s to go 1-0 down in the series and many had called on Cook to resign.

England are a side on the up and it looks like they’ve finally banished memories of the Ashes humiliation down under.
