It provoked patriotic feelings from the Indian fans on Twitter who were quick to admit the importance of this moment.

There were also visuals of Indians on Twitter who celebrated the moment on Twitter along with Neeraj Chopra and jumped with joy.

Meanwhile, as far as the ongoing Test match is concerned, Joe Root is keeping England in the game as he is approaching yet another Test ton. He also went past 1000 Test runs in 2021 and became the first batsman to do so. Jasprit Bumrah provided India a crucial breakthrough post-lunch as he dismissed Dom Sibley for 28 and ended an 89-run stand.

Indian pacers Bumrah and Siraj are the only bowlers to take the wickets as of now with Mohammed Shami providing support from the other end. England’s lead is increasing slowly and inching closer to the 100-run mark.
