Ollie Robinson was awarded player of the match after his outstanding performance in the match. He took 2 wickets in the first innings. Meanwhile, in the second innings, he bagged a sensational five-wicket haul.
In the post-match presentation, he also revealed the plan to dismiss India captain Virat Kohli. He stated:
” It’s a dream, to be honest, to get a man of the match award in my first win for England. I enjoyed bowling here before, and it’s nice to use the conditions here, so I’m happy to get a five-for here. To bowl with Jimmy and learn from him is an honor. It has only improved my game. I keep learning and trying to be as good as possible. It’s nice to get Kohli after he got me for two fours in the over – it’s a simple plan to Virat, fourth and fifth stump, get it to angle away, and hope he nicks it and he did.”
