India vs England 3rd Test Day 4 Highlights: England beat India by an innings and 76 runs to level the series 1-1. It all started with Ollie Robinson dismissing Cheteshwar Pujara for 91 as he, along with Kohli, failed to add a single run to their 99-run partnership. Soon after, Virat Kohli reached his first half-century of the series but fell to Ollie Robinson. Since then, India witnessed a massive collapse. Robinson completed his five-wicket haul, while James Anderson and Moeen Ali took a wicket each. Overton’s three-wicket haul cleared India’s tail.

“To be honest, getting the man of the match award in my first win for England is a dream. I’ve enjoyed bowling here first, and it’s good to use the conditions here, so I’m happy to get a five-wicket haul here It’s an honor to bowl with Jimmy and learn from him. It has improved my game. I keep learning and try to be as good as I can. It’s good to have Kohli when he gives me the over Fours off – it’s a simple plan for Virat, fourth and fifth stumps, to get it off, and hope he pulls it off and he did.”

“It was a fantastic and clinical performance from the bowlers. The two big lads put loads of pressure with three maidens, and we had a really good opportunity to take wickets and we took them ruthlessly. We know we are capable of performances like this, and we have the talent, that opening stand was fantastic too. We controlled and hung in with the new ball, and we reaped the rewards. Anderson churns out performances like that and that’s why he’s the GOAT of Test cricket. He’s very fit and sets an example for the other bowlers.”
“Dawid played beautifully and started a bit cautiously, but once he got going, he was fluent like he’d been playing the last few years, so the international experience came to the fore. As a batter, you are expected to go out and score every time and I am happy I’ve managed to score a few. It’s been a while since I got a hundred in my home ground and I hope we can carry this form forward as a team into the Oval. Robinson has been brilliant, and he’s asked good questions of their defense. He’s managed to move the ball throughout the innings, not just with the new ball. Sam is a talented player, and he may not be at his absolute best, but he will do special things for England. He showed last time we played India that he could play wonderful knocks, take key wickets, so I’m not worried about him at all. He has a lot of character and he will get better sooner rather than later. Buttler’s availability will be known in the next few days (paternity leave). As this is my home ground.

“It’s down to the scoreboard pressure. We knew we were up against it when we got out for 80 and the opposition put up a big total. We put up a vital partnership and saw the day go by, but the pressure from the English bowlers was superb. Morning And we didn’t react well. Batting can fall in this country, the pitch was good to bat on, but his discipline with the ball forced us to make some mistakes, and it was difficult to deal with spells where we were. Runs We didn’t make good decisions as a batting side. The pitch looked good to bat on, and didn’t change much when England batted, so they had a lot more intention with the bat, better decisions took it. They were a worthy side to win.”
“You can say we don’t have enough batting depth, but the top order has to give enough runs to move the lower middle order forward. The lower order can’t bail out the team all the time. We don’t in terms of positivity. There is more to this game than just batting in the second innings. Playing another spinner will depend on the pitch and we will decide later. It depends on the humidity and how it will last five days. The pressure of the fourth seamer ever -Sometimes is important and sometimes we have to make sure that taking only three seamers means the spinners have to come early. We need to fix our flaws quickly and we have done that before, and We are looking forward to the Oval Test.”
