Still no wicket for Woakes, and India have now run out of wickets for him to potentially take. Match over. In Woakes' defence he did only go for three runs an over on average in India's first innings and less than that in the second; on a good batting wicket he managed to keep an end relatively tight.
I'm slightly surprised Moeen took so many wickets; India are a side (so I was informed) who are good at facing spin. It seems potentially promising for England's future to me if Moeen goes on to develop into a really good test level spinner.
Cook and Bell both benefited from dubious umpiring decisions in the first innings; that said, they both went on to make runs on a good batting pitch, without needing further such decisions to remain at the crease.
Good keeping and enthusiasm from Buttler. Also nice run-scoring.
Can't see how Anderson's muttering at Rahane yesterday will have helped his [Anderson's] forthcoming disciplinary hearing.
Regarding Cook as captain, a first win in eleven matches doesn't remove my doubts as to whether he should be leading the England side - he needs to turn it into a streak, taking this series 2-1 or 3-1 (weather permitting) to convince me that at least for now he's capable of holding down the position. And if he can't stop his bowlers from mouthing off (and maybe getting themselves banned) I don't see that he's helping himself as captain.
Nice that he's back scoring runs though.
