England's Moeen Ali and James Anderson made up for the loss of Stuart Broad through injury with a devastating bowling display as the hosts skittled India out for 161 to win the fourth Test in Manchester on Saturday for a 2-1 series lead.

England, having scored 367-9 in their first innings, won by an innings and 54 runs to take a 2-1 lead in the five-match series.

Statistical highlights of the third day's play of the fourth Test between India and England at Old Trafford:

# India's opening pair have failed put on a 50-run stand in 31 innings in overseas Tests -- the last being 63 between Gautam Gambhir and Abhinav Mukund against England at Lord's in 2011.

# Cheteshwar Pujara has failed to live up to hopes in the ongoing series, having managed just 207 runs in eight innings at an average of 25.87. His batting average (22.25) in Tests in 2014 so far is
his worst in a calendar year (minimum qualification: two Tests) - his aggregate being 267 in 12 innings, including a half-century.

# Pujara, in six losing Tests, averages 27.83 -- his aggregate being 334 in 12 innings, including a century and a fifty.
