India, England share the keenly-contested Pataudi trophy

Joe Root and Jonny Bairstow scored fantastic centuries as England pulled off their highest-ever successful run chase in Tests to register an emphatic seven-wicket win over India in the rescheduled fifth Test on Tuesday. England, quite astonishingly, gunned down the 378-run target in the morning session of the fifth and final day with Root and Bairstow staying unbeaten on 142 and 114 respectively. England’s win meant that the five-match Test series, which spilled over to 2022 due to COVID-19 cases in the Indian camp last year, ended in 2-2 draw.
