The recently concluded Test series between India and England turned out to be one of the best displays of Indian cricket. They ticked almost all the boxes and secured the series 2-1. Although there was some talk around the last match this series will certainly go down as one of the classics.
One of the star performers for India was veteran opener Rohit Sharma who established himself in the red ball game. Rohit scored 368 runs in four Tests in England at an average of 52.57. He was the leading run-scorer for India and also notched up his maiden overseas Test hundred during the series.
“It was a good one considering where I was standing in my Test career. It’s not my best series. I feel my best is yet to come.
“I utilised the time before the World Test Championship final in Southampton (to figure) what sort of technique and mindset is required. I was pretty happy and would like to take it further,” the opening batter said.

On being asked about the abandoned Test match Rohit Sharma said that he had no idea about it but in his mind, India had won the Test series 2-1.
“I don’t know what’s happening with the last Test match. Whether we are playing a one-off Test (next year) but in my mind, we have won the series 2-1,” the 34-year-old added.
India decided to pull out of the final Test against England in Manchester after junior physio Yogesh Parmar tested positive for COVID-19. The BCCI recently confirmed that they will play the fifth Test of the series in July 2022, during their scheduled white-ball tour of England
