If you go back, we could have won the series if it hadn’t rained in the first match. But England played very well. England’s victory meant that the five-match Test series, which was extended to this year due to COVID-19 cases at the Indian camp last year, ended in a 2-2 draw.
“We have drawn the series and both the teams played very good cricket and it was a fair result,” Bamrah said.
“Pant took advantage of his opportunities. He and Jeddo brought us back into the game with their counter-attack. We were ahead in the game. He takes advantage of his opportunities, pushes himself back and I am very happy for that, “he said.
Bamrah said he thoroughly enjoyed his captaincy and was happy to lead the national team.

Leading the team was an honor and a great experience.” Captain of england Ben Stokes He said his team was trying to rewrite the way Test cricket is being played in the country with the brand’s new attacking brand.
“It makes my job easier when the boys play like that. When you have a clear, as we put in the dressing room, it makes it easier to chase such a total. Five weeks ago 378 used to be terrible, but now everything is fine.
“We are trying to rewrite how Test cricket is played in England. For the last four or five weeks, all our plans have been what we want to move forward. Bowling at the top of off is not important, it’s all ten. It’s about taking wickets, “he said.
“We want to give some new life to Test cricket. We want to impress the next generation. We want to bring in new fans and leave our mark on Test cricket,” he added.
Stokes praised his batsmen for chasing historic runs for England.
“Johnny and Root will get all the credit, but the way the openers played against Bumrah and Shami with the new ball set a precedent.” Man-of-the-match Johnny Bairstow, who scored centuries in both innings, said he was never afraid of failure and only wanted to put pressure on the opposition.
“It’s been a lot of fun right now. I’m taking it back to the basics. The last few years have been difficult for me, but the last few months have been great.
“The fifth day was over in 90 minutes. I still have the element of enjoyment. I am not afraid of failure and I just want to put pressure on the opposition. We will lose the way we are playing.” But it’s a positive entertainment brand to play cricket, “he said.
He said that England is always in control of the pursuit.
“India have some world class bowlers and you just have to take the pressure off. They try to scare, they have some great players and it was about trying to change the pressure on them.
“There was a time when it started to turn upside down. And this morning was a different morning. Root and I are just two boys from Yorkshire. We grew up playing together and from the days of Yorkshire Academy. Karr has spent a lot of time together. Now the Test team. Special to play with him, “Barstow said.
England man of the series Joe Root said he was always confident of pursuing the target set by India.
“It’s that simple. The atmosphere has been great and the boys have been having fun for the last four weeks. It’s very clear that we were chasing it and we were absolutely sure,” he said.
Asked about his own form, Root said: “It’s something you’re constantly looking for and something you rarely find. You want to have as much fun as possible. Johnny It’s great to see K’s batting, I just wanted to strike him.
“We are embarking on a great wave of confidence after a great performance against New Zealand. The start that both openers gave us was great and they increased the pressure again.”
