India’s resistance on the penultimate day of Headingley’s test lasted less than a session as a five-wicket transport from Ollie Robinson saw England take the set victory and 76 points at Leeds on Saturday.

Much was expected of the Indian Intermediate Order after their good show with the bat on Day 3 as Cheteshwar Pujara and Virat Kohli resumed the fight, but he died sooner than expected under bright sunshine and good conditions of bat.

Resuming from a nightly 215-2 score, the visitors crashed to 278 before lunch, with the Indian Intermediate Order once again failing miserably against the pace and cunning of England’s fast bowlers.

Cheteshwar Pujara (91) was the first to be fired, reaching out to a Robinson swinger who received a leg before the wicket in the exam, before captain Virat Kohli (55) edged out Joe Root shortly after completing its half-century.

Ajinkya Rahane’s sacking for 10 against James Anderson all but ended India’s hopes of overthrowing England’s lead, with Ravindra Jadeja’s late ending of 30 providing some entertainment but ultimately to no avail.

Robinson, who was named player of the game, finished in 5-65, while Craig Overton contributed with three wickets.
