Key Highlght

  • India won by 151 runs and took a 1-0 lead in the five-match series.
  • VVS Laxman feels the players would remember this victory for the rest of their lives.
  • India were in trouble at 181/6 at stumps on Day 4, with Rishabh Pant the only recognized batsmen unbeaten and the team leading by 154 runs.
  • England were bowled out for a measly 120 after chasing 272 to win in 60 overs.

A triumphant return! The Virat Kohli-led Indian team staged a stunning comeback on the final day of the Lord’s Test match to defeat England by 151 runs and grab a 1-0 series lead. The second Test match exceeded all expectations, with analysts describing England as “favorites” before day 5 and applauding India. VVS Laxman feels the players would remember this victory for the rest of their lives.

“I believe they (the Indian squad) will never forget this victory. They will remember this victory for the rest of their lives, especially given the scenario the team was in at the start of the fifth day, when they were unduly reliant on Rishabh Pant and the tail to follow “In an interview with ESPNCricinfo, former India batsman Laxman remarked.

He went on to say that the players’ energy never died on the field, and that the intensity played a huge impact in the outcome.

“And I thought the excitement and enthusiasm you could see in each and every over was incredible. It was contagious. The captain took the initiative and led the way. When Virat Kohli is captaining the team, the intensity is always high.”

India were in trouble at 181/6 at stumps on Day 4, with Rishabh Pant the only recognized batsmen unbeaten and the team leading by 154 runs. Pant fell cheaply to begin the day’s play, and many predicted a subsequent collapse. However, bowlers Mohammed Shami (56) and Jasprit Bumrah (89) put up a brilliant 89-run ninth-wicket stand to effectively bat England out of the game.

England were bowled out for a measly 120 after chasing 272 to win in 60 overs. Mohammed Siraj took four wickets, with Bumrah and Shami each taking three and one. Ishant Sharma took two wickets as India was able to complete the task in just 51.5 overs.
