The first Test between India and England at Trent Bridge ended in a draw as the visitors defied a nervous start on the fifth day and batted to safety. It was a Test where the lower order shined for both teams and witnessed record 10th-wicket stands. And it was a fitting end as India’s 10th wicket stand remained undefeated in the second innings. On a batting paradise, the Test seemed destined to end without a result, however, a bit of drizzle on the fifth morning and nervous start from India ensured there was an exciting finish on the cards. Ultimately, it was a solid fifty on Test debut from Stuart Binny which rescued India.
