Photos: England clinch series victory over India

England beat India by an innings and 244 runs in the fifth Test to win the series 3-1 on Sunday.
The tourists were all out for 94 in only 29.2 overs as Alastair Cook’s men triumphed at The Oval in emphatic fashion.
In claiming victory, England became only the second team to come from behind after two Tests to win the final three Tests of a series.
“It was an amazing turnaround after Lord’s,” said Cook. “India crumbled at the end but that was from the relentless pressure.”
Fast bowler James Anderson added: “The bowlers put the focus more on our strengths. We looked at what we do well, challenge the forward defence, hit the top of off stump.
“We knew that Alastair Cook was the right man for the job, the way he and Peter Moores had allowed young players come in and play their natural games.”
