England vs India 2018: 3 highest successful chases by India in England
- The 3 memorable victories by India in England in 4th innings chases.
The ongoing series between India and England has been a delight to watch with both sides looking to capitalize on crucial moments to win the matches. This has been the most riveting and closely-contested series of recent times.
There have been moments in every Test match where it looked like the other side will run away to victory only to be pulled back by manufactured chances created by the opposing team.
This tour to England has definitely confirmed one thing and that is it has been the best bowling attack that India has ever taken to the English shores. The pace attack is as good as going around and spin is ably supported by the best spinner in the world in Tests.
So, what has made it this close? It has been India's batting which has looked in shambles barring Virat Kohli, proven by the dismal batting debacle in the second Test match. So the onus will be again on Indian Batsman to step up for the team in a bid to save the series and effect a turnaround
