It’s been 1124 days since India last won a Test overseas. It has been 28 years since India last won a Test at Lord’s. The wait is over, and the man who starred on the final day is the man Indian fans have ridiculed for years – Ishant Sharma. He leads the triumphant team off the field. Ishant took career best 7 wickets in second Innings to give India 95 run victory.
India led by Mahendra Singh Dhoni lost the toss and was asked to bat first. With Ajankya Rahane’s century, India could manage to score 295 runs in first Innings. James Anderson took 4 wickets in the Innings. Later, Engaland scored 319 runs, out of which GS Ballance made 110 runs. Bhuvaneshwar Kumar took 6 wickets in the Innings.
India’s second Innings ended at 342 runs with good knocks from Murali Vijay (95), Jadeja (68) and B Kumar (52). England was to score 318 runs to win the match. However their innings ended at 223 runs.
Ishant Sharma is given man of the match for superb performance in second innings. Let’s wish Team India to win next matches to bring Investec Test series to home.
