England's cricketers secure historic win in India

Jonathan Trott and Ian Bell score centuries

England have sealed a historic win after drawing the final game of their four-match Test series in India.

Ian Bell and Jonathan Trott both hit centuries to earn the draw England needed to win the series.

It's the first time England have won a Test series in India since 1985.

Former England captain Michael Vaughan described winning a Test series in India as "the hardest thing to do in cricket".

At the close of play, England were 356 runs ahead of India, who didn't have time to bat again.

That meant this match was a draw, and the series finished 2-1 to England.

England travel to New Zealand next for a three-Test series in March, before taking on rivals Australia back here next summer in the 2013 Ashes.
