Commentary

England have done the unthikable as their aggressive batting has helped them chase down a mammoth 378 runs in the fourth innings against India in the Edgbaston Test.

Joe Root and Jonny Bairstow - who are in form of their life at the moment - deservedly emerged as the heroes for England as they helped England register a famous win in the rescheduled fifth Test by 7 wickets.

Root - the number one-ranked Test batter slammed his career's 28th Test century and brought up fourth ton of the five-match series. Bairstow, on the other hand, notched up his sixth Test Century in 2022.

Jasprit Bumrah - who was appointed the acting captain for the last Test of the series - started his captaincy stint on a losing note. Barring Bumrah, no Indian bowler could put up any challenge to the English batters in the fourth innings as they continued to score runs at will.

With this win, England have levelled the series 2-2 and dashed Team India's hopes of winning their fourth Test series on English soil. India were leading the series 2-1 before it was postponed last year.
