Ganguly brags of Indian cricket supremacy after defeat of England
The Indian board president said it had been a “great show” to see Jasprit Bumrah lead the Indian attack to bowl out England for just 210 on the final day, giving India a 157-run win and a 2-1 lead in the fivbragse-match series.
“The skill is the difference but the biggest difference is the absorbing power of pressure. Indian cricket is far ahead than the rest,” the former national captain wrote on Twitter.
India, second in the world Test rankings, made a remarkable turnaround after being dismissed for 191, and after England claimed a first-innings lead of 99.
Rohit Sharma scored 127 as the tourists made 466 in the second innings.
“What a comeback! The boys just kept bouncing back after every setback,” batting great Sachin Tendulkar said on Twitter.
“What a way to stamp authority on the last day when England were 77-0.”
The Times of India newspaper headlined their report “The Oval Renaissance” while former batsman V.V.S. Laxman said it had been a “special” win.
