Team India bounced back grandly after the Lord’s debacle to come back the five-match Test series to make it 2-1 against England at Trent Bridge.

Meanwhile, the side did a 360-degree turnaround and presented a brilliant show. Especially the batsmen put in a much-improved effort to put runs into the scoreboard. Skipper Virat Kohli once again led from the front backing his first innings score of 97 with an excellent century in the second essay.

Another notable mention was Hardik Pandya, who backed his outstanding spell with a half-century with the bat. However, it was Jasprit Bumrah, who returned from injury with a five-wicket haul. He was magical in the last session of day four as he brought almost on the verge of winning.

However, the England tailenders resisted well to stretch the game to the last day. However, the Indian bowlers didn’t waste much time to finish things off in the morning session. Ravichandran Ashwin did the honours as India won the match by 203 runs.
