What a match! All the cricket fans saw a thriller at Lord’s on the final day of the second Test. Day 5 belonged to India as, after a brilliant partnership between Mohammed Shami and Jasprit Bumrah, the fast bowlers rose to the occasion and bowled their hearts out to impose a result under 60 overs. The duo of Bumrah and Shami after stitching a brilliant partnership teamed up together in the bowling department as well as they picked both the openers in tandem.

Joe Root, who has been the wall of the English line-up, couldn’t provide another masterclass as he departed on 33. Jos Buttler did try his best to frustrate the Indian bowlers but fell in the final hour of the play to end England’s resilience. The hosts at the end were bowled out for 120 in a match which will be talked about a lot in coming years.

Netizens were as thrilled as the players and expressed their excitement on social media.
