In the rescheduled Test against England at the venue of Birmingham, Team India suffered a defeat at the hands of the team. Especially the bowling failure on the fourth day sank the team. With this, the England team chased down the target of 378 runs by losing only 3 wickets. In the second innings, the Indian bowlers could not trouble the England batsmen in any way. Openers Alex Lees (56) and Jack Crawley (46) put on a century partnership to start the team’s victory. But despite losing three wickets with a difference of two runs, Root (142 not out) and Jonny Bair Stow (114 not out) kept pace with centuries. As a result, the target that looked like a huge target melted like camphor.
Among the Indian bowlers, Bumrah took two wickets. Team India captain did not get cooperation from other bowlers. In the first innings, India scored 416 runs while England were bowled out for 284 runs. Team India, who started the second innings with a first innings lead of 132 runs, suffered a setback. Shubman Gill (4), Hanuma Vihari (11) and Virat Kohli (20) failed. However, India, who seemed to have recovered with Chateshwar Pujara (66) and Pant (57), lost wickets immediately after both of them got out. Shreyas Iyer (19), Jadeja (23) Shardul Thakur (4) came and went. With this, Team India was bowled out for 284 runs. A target of 378 runs was set in front of England. As England won this match, the five-test series was tied at 2-2. With this, Team India’s dream of winning a series in England after 2007 was not fulfilled.
