England, resuming the day at 340 for five, needed to bat at least till tea to save the match. That looked unlikely when Cook and Prior were sent back by Ojha in the first hour as the pitch showed signs of deterioration with the odd ball stopping on the batsman.
Prior went first caught and bowled one-handed and Cook was bowled by one that kept low.
Yadav (3/70) and Zaheer Khan (2/59) complimented the spinners well by making the ball reverse in dry conditions.
Graeme Swann (17) and Tim Bresnan (20) hung on for a while with the off-spinner playing some audacious strokes. But they did not last long, Swann bowled by Ashwin reverse sweeping once too often while Bresnan was the last man to get out, caught in the covers by substitute Ajinkya Rahane.
India are now 1-0 in the four match series with the second game beginning in Mumbai Nov 23.
