Alastair Cook put in much of the spadework to help level the Test series against India himself, but he knows who did even more to turn an "incredible" contest England's way.

Cook, the captain, and "game-changer" Kevin Pietersen are on a par with three greats of English cricket as their country's most prolific cen- turions after their innings in the second Test.
On the back of Pietersen's 186 and Cook's fourth century in as many successive matches as England Test captain, Monty Panesar and Graeme Swann exploited a spinners' pitch expertly for a 10-wicket victory in little more than three days at the Wankhede Stadium. Panesar finished with a career-best 11 wickets in the match, and Swann eight, as India were bowled out for 142 yesterday despite Gautam Gambhir's determined 65.
