WORCESTERSHIRE’S Moeen Ali led England’s surge to a series-levelling 266-run victory with more than two sessions to spare in the third Investec Test against India at the Ageas Bowl.

Moeen claimed 6-67 and will surely be back in action for next Thursday’s Test in Manchester as he increasingly belied his billing as a mere part-time off-spinner.

He took his series tally to 15 victims and match haul to eight with his maiden return of five wickets or more.
