NOTTINGHAM, England (Reuters) - India wrapped up victory in the third test against England on Wednesday picking up the final wicket needed to secure a 203 run victory at Trent Bridge.

The victory narrows England's lead in the five-test series to 2-1 ahead of next Thursday's fourth test at Southampton.

India needed just 17 balls to get the final wicket with off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin removing James Anderson who gloved a catch to Ajinkya Rahane.

England ended their second innings 317 all out after Jos Buttler's maiden test century on Tuesday provided some cheer in what was a poor batting display against fine Indian seam bowling.
