2021 seems to be working in favor of Virat Kohli’s men. The Indian cricket team is putting forth its best efforts in the test matches. On a perfect Monday evening, India defeated the English men for just 120. The second test match of this series had a total of 60 overs, but it seems like India did not need those many balls to defeat the opponent.
India Becomes The Game Changer
During the last decade, India’s performance has not remained noteworthy in the U.K. test matches. Virat Kohli’s dream for a long time now is to see India dominate the test grounds. So, when India managed to win the game by 151 runs, Virat Kohli had a childish joy in his eyes.
It seems like a much-awaited victory for Anushka Sharma’s husband and the father of her newborn child. That’s because Kohli missed out on the first victory of India at the beginning of the year in Australia. But, even though the Indian team was understaffed, they played against their odds and gave a jaw-dropping performance.
After their long struggle in the World Test Championship Final against New Zealand, Kohli seemed to have lost hope for his team. But, it looks like captain Joe Root’s decision to make the battling line so weak worked in favor of the Indians. India’s tireless bowling attack ultimately exposed Root’s ineffective strategy, and within 50 overs, the ball was in Indians’ court.
Full efforts is full victory! 🇮🇳
Well done boys!!!

How Did The Dream Of This Long-Awaited Victory Come True?
The India cricket team was filled with charming bowlers and fast-paced batters that worked wonders for the team. However, the surprises were restricted for their home grounds only because the game scenario changed whenever they set foot on alien grounds.
It looks like the Indian government finally dug deep into their pockets and gave the team some valuable resources. With sufficient resources and development equipment, Kohli managed to create a long line of pace bowlers. It was previously impossible to find in Indian cricket as easy as it was to see in the Pakistani team.
But, now, with so many untapped raw talents and proper resources in hand, Kohli managed to create a team of the best pacemen that took the team to new heights. Previously, it was only a dream of Indians to beat England in Lords or to beat Australians in the Gabba Fortress. But, now, Mohammed Siraj and Jaspreet Bumrah have managed to overwhelm the English team and secure the win in their pockets.
How Is The World Reacting?
India was not ready to renounce its foot from England’s throats this time. The team completely bullied the Englishmen with their offensive attacks. It looks like Kohli’s men were so charged up that the offense also became verbal sometimes. Ishant Sharma tweets:
“Full effort is full victory! Well done boys !!!”
The middle-order wicket-keeper batsman, Rishav Pant, also congratulates the boys. He says:
We were hungry, had desire and we showed it! Everyone turned up and we leave Lord’s with a win that we won’t forget soon. We take this momentum and move on. pic.twitter.com/xG9kaWtdU6

“We were hungry, had desire, and we showed it!”
Mohammad Kaif also does not back down to share his ecstatic feelings with the world to mark this extraordinary occasion. He also tweets:
“Remarkable effort by Indian bowlers to bowl out England inside two sessions to win the Lord’s Test.”
It looks like the all-time true mantra of ‘United we Stand, and Divided we fall’ worked magic for Indian men. They indeed managed to fight against all odds and won the match after all when nobody hoped they would.
Everyone is praising Kohli’s efforts to change the wheel of the team in such a surprising way. We also wish the captain all the very best to keep on surprising us in all these unimaginable ways.
