Graham Onions, Jonathan Trott and James Tredwell did the damage as the England Performance Programme beat an MRF XI by 111 runs in Chennai to end their tour of India on a high.

Onions claimed four wickets, and Trott and Tredwell three apiece as the home side were dismissed in their second innings for 190 after being set a target of 302 to win on the fourth and final day.

Both sides played for the result, with the home team declaring their first innings on 309 for five, a deficit of 189.

England reached 112 for three before declaring and skittling their opponents to wrap up the victory.

Sandun Dias was the only MRF batsman to pass 50, making 61 off just 50 balls before becoming Onions' fourth victim.
