England’s smooth-sailing chase eventually got to a phase where Joe Root unfurled a reverse scoop over third man off Shardul Thakur, putting to bed any notions of a deteriorating fifth-day pitch. The pair hit 19 fours during the leather hunt they subjected the Indian bowlers to on the final day, en route to the highest-ever fourth innings partnership in Tests worth 269 and the completion of their 378-run pursuit, even before the visitors could avail the new ball at the 80th-over mark. Although he lost his first Test as captain, Jasprit Bumrah was adjuged the Player of the Series for his excellent bowling throughout the series.
The most wickets by an India bowler in a series in England, and of course, that memorable over with the bat against Stuart Broad!
