England Skipper Joe Root said that the Test series win over the No 1 side India, is the best moment as a captain for him. England sealed 60 run win at Southampton, thereby sealing the series 3-1 with one more game pending in the series. Their last series win was against Windies.
They had a pretty bad winter, then a draw against Pakistan and this victory came as a much-needed one. “It’s definitely been the most enjoyable. I’ve felt very in control of things.” Said Joe Root when asked if this was his best win after taking over as England captain.
India chasing 245 on a fourth-day pitch was bowled out for 184 runs after a fightback from Virat Kohli and Ajinkya Rahane. The duo put on 101 runs for the fourth wicket before Moeen Ali send back Virat Kohli.
