India beat England by 157 runs at The Oval to take a 2-1 lead in the five-match Test series. The final Test match at Manchester will be played between September 10-14. Meanwhile, from being in a position to potentially win the Test match, England had a batting collapse on the final day to eventually lose the Test match. They were bowled out for 210 with still 30 overs left in the day’s play.
From being 77 for no loss, England lost wickets in a flurry once Shardul Thakur dismissed Rory Burns. Between 141 to 147, the hosts lost four wickets for just six runs. This was when the slide started for England.
Shardul Thakur dismissing Joe Root and Chris Woakes were the two crucial wickets in the line-up. Ravindra Jadeja for all his criticism took two wickets and timely ones as well. He dismissed Hameed and Moeen Ali pitching the ball in the rough and the pitch doing the rest.
Umesh Yadav and Jasprit Bumrah took two wickets each. Bumrah got the ball to reverse swing and got his yorkers on spot. He dismissed Ollie Pope with an inswinger and Jonny Bairstow with a perfect yorker in back to back over of his spell. Umesh Yadav dismissing Chris Woakes just before lunch made the Indian win all the more guaranteed. Umesh Yadav taking the final wicket of James Anderson ensured a 157-run win for the Virat Kohli-led team.
