The Indian team registered yet another historic Test match win at the Oval on Monday by beating England by 157 runs. While India had been bowled out for just 191 in the first innings, with several experts giving India no chance of coming back from there, the team bounced back in style to win the match comfortably on Day 5. The fact that this was their first win at the venue in 50 years made the victory all the more special.
Following the win, the entire team and support staff broke into a celebration. While the team's reaction on the field was captured by the broadcasters themselves, they later had an extended celebration in the change room glimpses of which have been shared by the Board of Control for Cricket in India's (BCCI) official social media page.

The complete video uploaded on the BCCI's official website shows the fun and banter among the players in the dressing room after tasting a comeback from behind win. Not only were there post-match reactions from Player of the Match Rohit Sharma, Umesh Yadav and Shardul Thakur, there were also a few visuals that gave us insight as to how the team celebrated and how was the atmosphere in the dressing room.
The team will now head to Manchester for the fifth and final Test which is sort of a fortress for England. Team India are yet to win a Test in that venue and have only managed draws and faced defeats at Old Trafford in the past. Given the way they have been playing in the series and how they have managed to breach the fortress in the past, India would believe that they could do the same one more time at Old Trafford and end the series on a high.
India are 2-1 up in the series and cannot lose the 5-match arrangement from here. The pressure will now be on the home team to force for a result and level the series.
