1-1 heading into The Oval…After India’s fightback on Day 3, England needed just the first session to pick 8 wickets and seal an innings win. Ollie Robinson – the wrecker-in-chief -finished with 5-65 in the 2nd innings and the ‘man of the match’ award. With a short turnaround, India will have to regroup very quickly before the next Test starts on Thursday.
On the other end of the format spectrum, Ireland face a must-win situation in the 2nd T20I against Zimbabwe on Sunday.
Watch out for an action-packed upcoming week of cricket!
