Lord’s Cricket Ground, This iconic cricket ground in England is also known as ‘Home of Cricket’. It is believed that this is the oldest ground in cricket history and some also believe that this ground is also associated with the birth of this game. On this ground, the cricket team of India and England collided with each other for the last 5 days and there was tremendous excitement of Test cricket. India won by 151 runs amid excitement on the final day of the match. England had ruled India for years and the day before India trampled England at Lord’s ground, it was the same special day (Independence Day) when the country won independence in 1947 by driving the British out of India. . In such a situation, on August 15, it was not right, but on the next day, captain Virat Kohli also said on the victory.
On August 15, a day before the Lord’s Test, while crores of Indians celebrated the 75th Independence Day in the country with great pomp, Team India in England also celebrated this special day by hoisting the tricolor. The next day India had a big task to do. He had to challenge England by giving him a big target. When the Indian batsmen got out in the morning, the hope started to waver but the tail batsmen – Mohammed Shami (56 not out) and Jasprit Bumrah (34 not out) turned the game around. India set a target of 272 runs for England and then won them by bundling them for 120 runs.
After the match, when skipper Virat Kohli was asked what he would like to have to say about registering a win the day after Independence Day, Kohli said, “Nothing could be a better gift to the Indian fans than this win.” Virat further said, “I was part of that team in 2014 with Dhoni bhai. But it was amazing to get the victory in 60 overs today. Mohammad Siraj was playing at Lord’s for the first time and he bowled brilliantly.”
While India’s tail batsmen made a historic performance with the bat on the last day, when it came to bowling, apart from Shami and Bumrah, that bowler once again showed his mettle, Virat Kohli did not forget to mention – Mohammad Siraj. This fast bowler is playing for the first time in England and he won everyone’s heart by taking 4-4 wickets in both the innings of Lord’s Test.
