England thought they had already done half the work upon winning the toss in Mohali. However, their below par first-innings total eroded the advantage. India's all-round spin trio managed to stretch the lead with a commendable batting display. Armed with scoreboard pressure, Ashwin imposed himself on the visitors to induce a fatal collapse even as Shami polished off the tail. The hosts chased the paltry target to complete a 8-wicket victory and take a 2-0 lead in the series.
