WHY YOU MUST NOT MISS ENGLAND V INDIA

WHY YOU MUST NOT MISS ENGLAND V INDIA
With the countdown well under way to the climax of the English summer at an iconic venue, cricket fans are readying themselves for what could be another week to remember at the Kia Oval.


Many of the biggest Test series in recent years have come to a head in front of a full house at the Kia Oval but what’s going to be special about this upcoming clash between England and the world’s best Test side?
You couldn’t have failed to see last week’s enthralling opening Test between the sides at Edgbaston, which England eventually won during the first session on Day 4.
Having batted first, England looked to be in charge but a collapse allowed India back into the match. The rest of the clash followed much in the same vein with neither side ever truly comfortable and the result up in the air come Friday evening.

Ben Stokes claimed the prized wicket of Virat Kohli on Saturday morning but that wasn’t the end of England’s sweats. They eventually won by 31 runs to spark mass celebrations on the pitch, in the stands and around the cricket loving country.
Sam Curran, in just his second Test appearance, was Man of the Match in that tight Edgbaston victory after taking five wickets and scoring 87 runs.

His 4/74, including the wickets of India top three Murali Vijar, Shikhar Dhawan and KL Rahul, was crucial in ensuring Virat Kohli was starved of partners as England held a narrow lead. He then smashed 63, after coming in at 86/6, to give his country a defendable total.
