This match was nicely set up in the morning. 84 runs and five wickets – that’s the equation. India’s hope was pinned on Virat Kohli. They lost Dinesh Karthik very early but kept on believing. England probably derived a strategy to have Kohli off strike by giving him easy singles.
An Asian team yet again failed to register a win in Edgbaston but not before giving a scare to the Three Lions. This Test match had all the ingredients for a spicy movie. Root’s knock on Day 1, Kohli running him out with the mic drop celebration, Sam Curran’s swinging spell to destroy India’s top half, Stokes-Anderson’s top spells to put India in tatters, Dawid Malan dropping the Indian skipper twice, Virat Kohli hurting him and England with a crafty century, not to forget his vital stands worth 92 runs with the tail.
