After a 3-0 whitewash against the Proteas in the tests, the Indian side attained a greater lead in the ICC World Test Championship. With 240 points on the table , the side is seated comfortably at the top. A complete team effort is one of the major reasons behind India’s performance in the recent times.
Shami, one of the spearheads in the bowling department expressed his happiness on the same. He said “Indian conditions were always known to be spin friendly. Now we have that power, among our pacers, that we can make batsmen dance with the bat”, in an interview with Wriddhiman Saha after the game.

This win means that India has won 11 test series on a row at home conditions. The last time India lost a test in India is the 1st game against Australia couple of years ago.
Though Bumrah was ruled out few days ahead of the Test series, the pace department gave their best. Umesh and Shami came out all guns blazing againt the opposition.
Shami , always known for his remarkable spells in second innings once again proved his class in the series. Picking 13 wickets , he is right at the top among the pace department.
India’s next Test series will be against Bangladesh at home. However, due to the tensions prevailing between BCB and the players, it is still not sure if the team will tour India.
