IND vs ENG 1st Test: India forced to draw 1st Test as rain robs Virat Kohli & Co a chance to win: The first Test of the 5-match Test series between Indian and England concluded in a draw as the play on the final day of the contest was abandoned due to continuous rain. With the draw, India and England share 4 points each in the second edition of the World Test Championship (WTC) points table. England skipper Joe Root was adjudged as the ‘Man of the Match’ for his crucial 109-run knock.

It was the first match of the World Test Championship (WTC) 2023 cycle. The start of day five got delayed twice after an early Lunch and Test was taken as rain played a spoilt sport. India needed just 157 runs to win the first Test on day five but no play was possible due to rain. The visitors scored 52 runs after bundling out England in the third session on Saturday.

India got off to a cautious start but eventually lost KL Rahul as Stuart Broad bowled an absolute peach of a delivery to dismiss the Indian batsman.

IND vs ENG 1st Test: India bundled out England on 303 in the third session after Joe Root’s classy ton in the second innings.

Root played an all-important innings before India fought back as Jasprit Bumrah picked five wickets. It was Bumrah’s second five-wicket haul at Trent Bridge.

The England skipper came into bat when the hosts were struggling in the game. In the second session on Saturday, India picked three wickets but Root kept on scoring at a decent rate to keep England in the game.

“We certainly felt like we were on top of the game. Getting that lead was crucial, but it’s a shame we couldn’t finish day five. Getting to fifty overnight was important. We just didn’t want to play for survival. Our intent kept us ahead. It’s hard work of three odd weeks for our bowlers with the bat,” Virat Kohli said after the match.
