‘Bazball conquered’: India’s series win breaks the internet


India successfully completed a tense chase to secure a five-wicket win against England in the fourth Test on Monday, thus taking an unassailable 3-1 lead in the five-match series.

(52 not out) and Dhruv Jurel (39 not out) joined forces, forging an unbroken partnership of 72 runs for the sixth wicket, ultimately sealing India’s victory on the penultimate day of the match.
