The Indian Cricket team registered their 4th consecutive victory over England and have won the 5 match series 4-0. This is team India’s 18th consecutive test match victory, the highest for an Indian team ever!! India is now 6 test match victories away from breaking the West Indian cricket team’s unbeaten record of 24 consecutive test match victories. Team India continues to be the top ranked test team in the World.
Ravindra Jadeja picked up 7 wickets in the second innings on the final day of the 5th test match to give India a victory by an innings and 75 runs. Ravindra Jadeja picked up 10 wickets in the match, and this was the first time he achieved that feat. This stupendous victory was attributed to some sensational batting done by KL Rahul and Karun Nair.
KL Rahul played well, but was unlucky to get out on 199. Karun Nair was awarded the man of the match trophy for his triple century in the first innings. He is the first batsman in the World to score a triple century in his first test match series. Virat Kohli was awarded the man of the series trophy for the 655 runs he scored as the Indian skipper.
Virat Kohli is said to be the most successful Captain of the Indian Cricket team as far as test cricket is concerned. 18 test victories is the best record our team has ever had. English cricket team captain Alistair Cook is said to be having a tough time as he will most probably be sacked as captain for his team’s lacklusture performance under him. The English skipper is under tremendous pressure as his team has not performed with the bat ball.
