Team India had an eventful tour of England. Although they lost the important ICC World Test Championship match against Ben Stokes and Co., they won the three-match T20I series 2-1. The Men in Blue continued their winning momentum in the ODIs, winning the three-match series by a 2-1 margin.
Rohit Sharma and Co. had a lot of positives from the tour. From a remarkable comeback by Hardik Pandya to Rishabh Pant’s matured innings to Jasprit Bumrah and Mohammed Shami’s impeccable bowling, there was plenty for India to bank on.
The Men in Blue will return to action next week when they lock horns with West Indies at their den. Shikhar Dhawan will lead the team in a three-match ODI series against the Men in Maroon in the absence of regular captain Rohit Sharma.
The three matches will not be a part of the ongoing ICC Cricket World Cup Super League. The tour also comprises five T20Is, which will start on July 29 and end on August 7.
