England wrapped up a convincing 10-wicket victory in Mumbai to level their Test series against India.

Monty Panesar's career-best figures of 11-210 set England on their way to victory before captain Alastair Cook and fellow opener Nick Compton completed the job at the Wankhede Stadium.

India had begun the day just 31 runs in front after Panesar and Graeme Swann had them in all sorts of trouble.

And although the opening over of the day saw 10 more added to that total it was a brief moment of respite for the hosts.

Swann (4-43) removed Harbhajan Singh, with Jonathan Trott taking a neat catch, while Zaheer Khan fell to Panesar (6-81) when his attempted slog was safely held by wicketkeeper Matt Prior.

Pragyan Ojha survived a close call from Panesar before Swann ended the resistance of Gautam Gambhir for 65n, the opener trapped leg before.

That was the last wicket to fall, with India collapsing to 142 all out -giving England just 57 to chase for victory.

And Cook and Compton wasted little time chasing the target down - playing positively and aggressively to reach the target in under 10 overs.

Cook followed up his first-innings century with an unbeaten 18, while Compton led the way with 30 not out off just 28 balls.
