India’s batting landslide in the opening session of day four at Headingley cleared the path for England’s victory by a bumper margin of an innings and 76 runs. For the tourists, half the battle was lost on the opening day when they were rolled out for a paltry 78. Joe Root, who’s having a dream run in 2021, spared them no mercy and went on to accomplish three figures. Though Cheteshwar Pujara’s vigil sparked hopes of an Indian comeback, Ollie Robinson’s five-wicket haul nipped such highfalutin notions in the bud.
The winning moment!! 🙌https://t.co/UakxjzUrcE
