A video of England and Indian squads arriving at The Ageas Bowl in Southampton on Sunday for the first day’s play of their third Test match.
According to a report from PTI, they have snatched the momentum with a brilliant show on the dreaded Lord’s green-top and India’s in-form cricketers would now aim to take an unassailable series lead against a demoralised England side in the third Test starting here tomorrow.
The visitors won the second Test at Lord’s by 95 runs on a green-top after the first Test at Nottingham was drawn. The stage is now set for Mahendra Singh Dhoni‘s men to overwhelm the hosts, who are in turmoil.
The victory at Lord’s marked an end to the 15-match long drought without an overseas Test win. It stretched as far back as 2011, when India had beaten West Indies at Kingston. That was also the last time that the Dhoni-led side took a 1-0 series lead overseas. In that light, this is uncharted territory for a young team.
