Highlights India vs England 4th Test, Day 3, The Oval, 18-22nd August,2011
Sachin Tendulkar was one of Graeme Swann's three victims on the third day at The Oval as India's batsmen struggled, yet again, in the series
India 103 for 5 (Dravid 57*, Dhoni 5*) trail England 591 for 6 dec (Bell 235, Pietersen 175) by 488 runs
The whitewash is well and truly on. Despite another session being lost to rain, and the best efforts of Rahul Dravid, England surged at The Oval as India were left in tatters on 103 for 5 in reply to the hosts' massive 591 for 6. Ian Bell carried his serene maiden Test double to 235 then, after a three-hour delay, Virender Sehwag was removed in the first over of India's reply and a succession of team-mates, including Sachin Tendulkar, followed him with Graeme Swann making a major impression with three wickets.
England would probably have carried on their run-glut towards 650 - or even consecutive scores of 700, something that has never been done - had the weather not closed in at lunch and, despite a damp outfield, it was a fairly straightforward decision for Andrew Strauss to let his bowlers loose during a long final session. After a quiet time this is looking like Swann's match with substantial turn already on offer out of the footmarks. If he is the matchwinner it really will be the complete series for England.
