After 15 years, the dream of the Indian team to win the series in England remained unfulfilled. England defeated the team led by Gaspreet Pomerah by 7 wickets in the fifth Test match held in Edgbaston. In the rescheduling decision, the hosts easily chased a total of 378 in the fourth innings to settle the series at 2-2. With this, England chased the biggest goal in test cricket history.
Jonny Bairstow has done the work for England, which many of the Indian stars have failed to do for their team. Bairstow scored a century in both roles and played an important role in winning the team. Joe Root continued his golden form to complete the 28th Test Century, surpassing Virat Kohli in the number of centuries in the game’s longest format.
The performance of the bowlers along with the Indian batsmen in this match was also a matter of debate. But the struggle between Jonny Bairstow and Virat Kohli on the fourth day of the match caught everyone’s attention. However, after a few times, both players were seen laughing. But now once it caught fire. In fact, after the win, the official account of the England cricket team on Twitter, taunted Kohli.
The England board shared two photos, in one of which Virat Kohli points his finger at Bairstow to stay calm, while in the other photo he is embracing Bairstow.
Indian players said the dream was shattered after the defeat from England but they didn’t dare – we will come back strong
Meanwhile, England fan group Barmy Army has ridiculed Kohli’s poor level of double century after Bairstow, saying “Bairstow has scored more points in the last 25 days than Kohli in 18 months”.
After a 2-2 tie of the Test series, both teams will now focus on white ball cricket from Thursday. The first T20 match will take place in Southampton on Thursday (7 July). Most players who played the last demo match will not be seen in this match. He rested in the first match.
