The England seamer Ollie Robinson explained the noise from the crowd post-Virat Kohli’s dismissal and revealed how it helped his confidence to bowl well after that. Robinson’s second five-wicket in his career helped England won the Headingly test easily by an innings and 76 runs and have subsequently levelled the series 1-1 as well.
The fourth day needed a god bowling effort from the England side as India started the day at 215 for the loss of 2 wickets and they produced the perfect morning with the wickets of set batsmen Cheteshwar Pujara, Kohli, and Rahane. Anderson and Robinson bowled a very tight line beating the bat quite a lot and India was left with no answers in the end.
