Chasing 183, India were 87/2 at Lord's. Then a collapse followed, and the lower order had to bat out of their skins to save the Test. India finished on 145/8 as rain prevented a closer result.

England got a 71-run lead in the decider at The Oval. They were 24/1 when Bhagwat Chandrasekhar dismissed John Edrich and Keith Fletcher off the last two balls before lunch. Chandra went on to take 6/38, one of the most famous spells by an Indian in Test cricket, as England collapsed to 101. Eknath Solkar's catch to dismiss Alan Knott remains an iconic photograph.
India, 76/2 at stumps on Day 4, went on to win by four wickets next day.
