So far England have made India’s batsmen dance to their pace and swing; now, they are making them sway to Graeme Swann‘s song. If the off-spinner continues to twist and spin, it may well trigger the swansong for at least one or two Indians.
As the shadows lengthened and the ball started biting, Swann finally pulled out his act: he first elicited a sharp deflection off Rahul Dravid‘s unflagging willow; then he lured Virender Sehwag out of his den and whizzed one through his stunned bat and pad.
James Anderson joined the party soon enough, ensnaring VVS Laxman with an unplayable beauty, to leave India gasping at 124 for three. By close of play, India had inched to 129 for 3 in the second innings, still needing 163 to make England bat again.
