The curtains eventually came down yesterday on India’s five-match Test series against England, which the home team won comprehensively by 4-1. The last match at Kennington Oval in London had no significance for the reason that Joe Root’s Three Lions had already pocketed the series following their resounding 60-run victory at The Ageas Bowl in Southampton.

Both teams fought tooth and nail to overpower each other, but the Three Lions turned out to be a tad too powerful for Virat Kohli and Co. Apart from the second Test at the iconic Lord’s Cricket Ground, every other match turned to be competitive as the teams had got equal opportunities to pounce on. The first match at Edgbaston in Birmingham turned out to be a cliffhanger.

Fans disappointed by Shastri

After India were pushed back, they stormed back to register their maiden victory in the series by 203 runs at Trent Bridge in Nottingham. The Indian captain accomplished his 23rd Test ton and coupled with Jasprit Bumrah and Hardik Pandya’s five-wicket hauls, the visiting team brushed aside the Brits to keep their hopes alive in the five-match series on English soil.

The penultimate match turned out to be a roller coaster ride as the match was poised for a thrilling finish. However, India made a meal of their run-chase and fell way short of the target. In the meantime, Ravi Shastri, the Indian cricket team’s head coach, has been a recipient of brickbats from the supporters, who have questioned his role in the Indian setup.

The former Indian cricketer has shown confidence on his team and vouched for his team to make comebacks, but unfortunately, that wasn’t the case. India are next scheduled to play the Windies next month after which their tour of Australia starts in November. For the time being, Twitterati has called for Shastri’s removal as the head coach.
