Morgan ton in vain for England

Morgan’s bullish 102 in 81 balls answered questions about his continued value to the side emphatically but it was not enough to keep pace with the hosts, who saw Yuvraj Singh (150) and Mahendra Singh Dhoni (134) rolled back the years with magnificent tons of their own.
It was another bruising day for the bowlers, India’s old favourites rescuing them from 25 for three to 381 for six and the tourists making their highest ever second innings score of 366 for eight.
A 256-run stand between Yuvraj and Dhoni effectively settled things in the home side’s favour and came with added significance for the 35-year-old duo – Yuvraj reaching three figures for the first time since the triumphant 2011 World Cup campaign and Dhoni showing he would not be entirely ceding the spotlight to Virat Kohli just yet.
