The Indian cricket team has clawed their way back into the five-match Test series after an all-round show to hand England a crushing defeat in the third Test match at Trent Bridge.

It was a remarkable victory for the Virat Kohli-led side who appeared to be down and out after the Lord's defeat. The Indian cricket team needed a huge turnaround and they showed incredible character to turn things around by registering a comprehensive 203 runs victory against England in the third Test. 

India's batting unit improved exceptionally in comparison to the previous two Tests. The Indian batsmen looked far more composed and finally looked to have found their rhythm in the third test.

As far as India's bowling was concerned, Jasprit Bumrah's inclusion seemed to have bolstered the bowling attack. The Indian bowling unit dominated the proceedings over the course of two innings and rattled an English batting unit which was dreaming of chasing down a record score. 

Man of the Match, Virat Kohli admitted it is a very special day for him and he would like to dedicate this victory to the flood victims of Kerala. He further added that it was a much-needed one and the management and the players are very proud of what they have done.

The series now stands 2-1 in favor of the hosts making it an interesting affair for the remaining two Tests. The Indian cricket team will be looking to carry the momentum heading into the third Test match, which is slated to get underway on August 30 at Southampton.
