India Team Defeated U.K inside The fourth test at the Kennington Oval in London, leading 2-1 in the ongoing five-match series. Pursuing a goal of 368, the hosts out of the game with 210 points and lost the game by a huge advantage of 157 points.
The outstanding century of Rohit Sharma, Jasprit Bumrah’s sensational bowling, Ravindra Jadeja’s impressive rotating display, Umesh Yadav’s comeback performance, Shardul Thakur’s full display of top cricket, and Virat Kohli’s outstanding captain are the main factors behind India’s historic victory on the Oval.
This is the first time India has won a test victory at this venue since 1971, and it is also the first time India has won multiple games in a test series in England since 1986. In addition, this is only the second time India has won an overseas test after being fired for less than 200 batting. The first such incident occurred in the 2018 game against South Africa in Johannesburg.
The visiting team won the test matches in Lord’s and Oval in the same series:
- 5 – Australia, 1930, 1948, 1972, 2001 and 2015.
- 4 – The West Indies in 1950, 1973, 1984 and 1988.
- 3 – Pakistan in 1992, 1996 and 2016.
- 1 – New Zealand in 1999
- 1 – South Africa in 2012
- 1 – India in 2021*
“The character shown by the team, recovering from a deficit of 100 games, shows that we have not failed. In the first three bowling performances I have witnessed as the captain of India,” The winning captain Corley said in a post-match speech.

This is a very special test victory. After hitting 127/7 on the first day, not many teams can make a comeback and win the away test like the Indian team. This is why this is a very special Indian team. Congratulations to everyone for playing their part in an unforgettable victory. pic.twitter.com/9XDJCCrAwC

There is something special about this bowling attack. They saw a chance to win, but they forgot that they were in poor condition or out of touch. A flat track does not mean a flat bowling ball. #ENGVIND

This, in many other victories in Australia and England, only reiterated the belief that India is no longer a team that depends on one person to win. Whether it is Mohammad Siraj or Shardul Thakur, their team depth is exemplary in the test.

India has another wonderful day 5 victory in London.
On the two venues that provide the least seams and swings, India beat England by more than 150 times.
India is a better team under all conditions; England needs extreme home conditions to close the gap

Wonderful test match. India has suffered a huge blow, and now needs to take some special measures at Old Trafford, so that the devastated England can equalize this series. #ENGVIND
