India beat England by a 157 run margin. With Virat Kohli at the helm, Team India registered a massive win in the 4th Indian vs. England Test series 2021, with India having a 157 run over England. The contested match brought together two teams at the Oval in London, and here are the events that unfolded.
The game was a high-scoring match with India’s talented spinner Ravindra Jadeja teaming with Pace ace Jasprit and Captain Virat Kohli to severely thrash their hosts in the India Tour of England, registering a wide score margin. This was the first test win India recorded while playing England at The Oval in 50 years.
The India vs. England 4th Test started with India’s dreaded hitman Rohit Sharma as the opener. It was evident that the batsman had winning intentions in the series with his never-seen batting techniques. Rohit finally achieved his international century after missing out in the previously played four matches in the series. He played an entertaining 127-run knock that set the stage for a high score total.
The first inning was flawed when Shardul Thakur chose to bat for the team. The middle-order collapsed, and this opened a window for England to rake in more goals. However, Shardul was able to set his record straight and launched a counter-attack. This saw him get his fastest half-century in only 13 balls dragging English bowlers into the 2nd innings.
Bumrah faced the England first innings player Ollie Pepe and removed him before sending Jonny Bairstow ducking with his Yorker bowling trademark. Bumrah was able to complete his 100th test wicket when Pope was taken out. He also surpassed the legend Kapil Dev and became the fastest Indian pacer with 100 test wickets.
Kohli led his team to celebrate a historic win at The Ovals at the end of the game. Despite the injuries and the absence of their head coach, the team never lost focus, even for a second.
