Tendulkar (91) and Mishra (84) gave a ray of hope and the way they batted in the morning session, it looked like India were determined to save the Test. The two added 144 runs for the fourth wicket.
However, their fall within a space of four balls at 262 changed the complexion of the match and the new ball did the rest.
Following on, India folded up for 283 in the second innings on the fifth and final day Monday having been bundled out for 300 in the first outing.
