    DURANI, THE ARCHITECT OF THE INDIAN VICTORY, TOOK FOUR WICKETS, TWO IN THE MORNING, IN ENGLAND'S SECOND INNINGS AND HAD MATCH FIGURES OF 10 FOR 177. AN UNERRING BOWLER, HE WAS STRONGLY SUPPORTED BY CATCHING AND FIELDING THAT HELPED REGAIN INDIA'S GRIP ON THE GAME EACH TIME IT APPEARED TO BE SLIPPING THROUGH THEIR HANDS.

    NADKARNI'S CATCH, THE PREVIOUS DAY, TO DISMISS DEXTER WAS A DECISIVE BLOW AGAINST ENGLAND; AND ON THIS LAST DAY ENGINEER SNAPPED UP KNIGHT, WHO WAS SHOWING STERN DEFENCE, AND THEN CONTRACTOR TOOK A LOW CATCH TO DISMISS PARFITT AS THE BATSMAN PLAYED FORWARD TO DURANI.

HE BATTED FOR 136 MINUTES AND HIT FOUR FOURS. ALLEN AND MILLMAN CAME TOGETHER AND RESISTED FOR 25 MINUTES. CONTRACTOR GAVE THE BALL TO PRASANNA, THE OFF-SPINNER, AND HE TOOK HIS FIRST, TEST WICKET WHEN MILLMAN PLAYED FORWARD AND GAVE A CATCH TO CONTRACTOR AT SHORT FINE LEG. LOCK SENT UP THE 200 BEFORE LUNCHEON WAS TAKEN TWO RUNS LATER.

    WITHIN 10 MINUTES AFTER LUNCHEON, ENGLAND'S INNINGS WAS OVER, BOTH ALLEN AND LOCK SEEING OUT TO CATCHES OFF BORDE, THE LAST WICKET FALLING AT 209. AMID THE JUBILATION OF INDIA'S CRICKETERS AND THEIR IDOLS.
