Nottingham: England captain Andrew Strauss was overwhelmed to see his team recover from 124 for eight in the first innings to beat India by a massive 319 runs on the fourth day of the second cricket Test at Trent Bridge here on Monday.
"There have been some outstanding performances in the two Test matches. It was a fantastic turnaround and I'm very proud on what we've done this week. (Tim) Bresnan was unlucky not to be playing in the first Test match and he keeps putting his credentials in place, making it harder and harder," said Strauss.
Bresnan scored 90 runs in the second innings as England piled up 544 in their second innings to set a world record target of 478 for India. Brensan then bowled a fiery spell picking up five for 48 to bowl out India for 158 runs
