Team India recorded the worst record in the history of Test cricket. For the first time, Team India could not save the target of more than 350 runs. India set a target of 378 runs in front of England in the rescheduled Test at Birmingham and the English team struck with seven wickets to spare. Also, this is the first time that team India has lost after getting a lead of more than 100 runs in the first innings. In the fifth Test match against England, Bumrah Sena scored 132 runs in the first innings. But in the second innings, they were bowled out for 284 runs on a pitch that was suitable for batting. Looking at the first three days of play, it seemed that Team India would win. But the game took a turn on the fourth day. England’s batsmen paid for the failure of the bowlers. As a result, the result of the match was reversed in one day.
Meanwhile, England batsman Joe Root, who scored a flood of runs in the five-match Test series against Team India, was awarded the Man of the Series award. He scored 737 runs in five matches. And Bairstoke, who impressed with centuries in both innings in the fifth Test, got the man of the match award. He scored 106 runs in the first innings and 114 not out in the second innings.
