Springing back into form, team India on Monday outclassed England in a 157-run defeat at the Oval. After 50 years India crushed England by 157 runs in the fourth Test to register their first win at the Oval, the international cricket ground in Kennington.
Set a target of 368 runs, Indian bowlers outplayed by taking down England for 202. Bumrah and Jadeja stood as stars of the day. Bumrah dismissed Ollie Pope (2) and Jonny Bairstow (0) while Jadeja saw the back of Haseeb Hameed (63) and Moeen Ali (0). Shardul Thakur got the key wicket of rival skipper Joe Root (36) while Umesh Yadav dismissed Chris Woakes (18), Craig Overton (10), and James Anderson (2).
Virat Kohli said it was among the “top three bowling performances” of his time as an India skipper. The final game of the series will now be played at Old Trafford from September 10.
