ENG vs IND 5th Test: England registered a historic victory over Team India in the 5th Test match at Edgbaston. They registered a record chase of 378 runs in the second inning. This was the highest run chase of England and second-highest overall. Joe Root and Jonny Bairstow scored centuries in the second inning and helped England to reach the winning total.
However, some cricket fans are really not happy with the results as India was in total control of the match for the first three days. They had a good total against the hosts for the second inning but they failed to take the wickets. Many cricket fans are now calling the Indian cricket team “New Chokers” of Cricket.

This England team makes me so happy. Not since the days of Andrew Strauss have I enjoyed watching England in the whites as much. Stuff of dreams. #ENGvIND— Harneet Singh Sethi (@JAHANPANAHHH) July 5, 2022
Even after all the Bazball & everything, England could not win the series in their home conditions.— Ritesh Garg (@riteshgarg1061) July 5, 2022

Virat Kohli is a burden on team India.— Pradyuman? (@ToboTweets) July 5, 2022
Everyone knows he is a great better but his form is not with him.
It’s better that he goes and play domestic cricket to regain his confidence and form both!#ENGvIND
It’s been exactly 100 days since England lost to West Indies in Grenada.— Yas Rana (@Yas_Wisden) July 5, 2022
A scarcely believable turnaround.#ENGvIND
Eng have been excellent.— Tejas (@jha_tejas26) July 5, 2022
A chase that will be remembered for long.
Kudos to Root & Bairstow.?
India were abysmal with the bat & ball in the 2nd innings.
Fielding was bad, captaincy, poor.
This isn’t just a defeat.
This is much more.#ENGvIND#ENGvsIND#INDvsENG #EdgbastonTest
