India won the 4th Test match against England at The Oval in the most enthralling manner and the victory became special as it came on the venue after 50 years. India after showing splendid performance across departments bagged a lot of attention and appreciation from fans. Some big names also joined the bandwagon and congratulated India on scripting history and former Australian legend Shane Warne was one of them.
Warne congratulated India by posting that what the team has achieved over the last 12 months is absolutely incredible and this is why they are the best Test team in the world. However, when Warne made his tweet, his friend and New Zealand golfer Ryan Fox jumped in to take a dig. He replied that India didn’t beat New Zealand in the WTC final of 2019-21 and hence, they can’t be the best in the world.
“Congratulations. @imVkohli & the entire Indian team on another terrific win. What you guys have all achieved together over the last 12 months is absolutely magnificent! Clearly, the best test team in the world & that title is thoroughly deserved too! Long live test cricket,” tweeted Shane Warne
“Come on mate they didn’t beat the mighty @BLACKCAPS in the world test championship!” tweeted Ryan Fox

India played WTC Final against New Zealand in June 2021 and lost the high-profile event. However, talking about England series, India has bounced back in style as they have taken a 2-1 lead in the five-match Test series. Only the last match of the series is left which will take place in Manchester. It remains to be seen if India will clinch the series by further winning the final game or it will end in a draw.
India displayed absolutely stunning action across departments and bowlers of India unleashed their magic during the 2nd session on day five. Rohit Sharma’s ton in the 2nd innings remained crucial in pushing India post 466 runs on the board and he bagged the player of the match award in the 4th Test at The Oval, London.
