Last updated on: November 19, 2012 13:58 IST

India registered a comfortable nine-wicket victory over England in the first Test at Motera on Monday.

England captain Alaistair Cook (176) and wicketkeeper Matt Prior (91) put up a staunch resistance on Day 4, but Pragyan Ojha once again came to the party. He scalped both wickets on the final day to end with figures of four for 120 in the second innings.

Needing 77 runs to record their first win at the venue in seven years, on a crumbling and dusty pitch, India achieved the target, scoring 80 for 1 in 16.3 overs in their second essay after lunch on Day 5.

So, what did India do right, and England wrong at Motera.

Discuss the first Test, with India Abroad's Bikash Mohapatra on Rediff ZaraBol at 2.30 pm.
