LONDON Aug 16: India on Monday wrapped up a dramatic Test win at Lord’s to take a 1-0 lead in the five-match series against England.
While the cricket in itself was entertaining enough, with several twists and turns and some brilliant performances, tensions also flared between both teams.
What started with Jasprit Bumrah delivering a barrage of short deliveries to England’s No.11 James Anderson, went on to an exchange between India captain Virat Kohli and Anderson, followed by verbal volleys between Bumrah and England players when he came on to bat and then finished with Kohli constantly getting in the ear of Jos Buttler, who was doing his best to try and save the Test match for the hosts.

Former Australian spinner Shane Warne slammed England, labelling their tactics “horrible”, backing India to “win or draw” the Test.
“Horrible tactics from Eng. Why don’t the bowlers say no I don’t want 5/6 fielders on the fence – as how am I getting the batsman out skip. Will Eng go for these runs ? Remember when NZ set 270 of 75 overs & Eng never considered the chase. India win or draw for me,” tweeted Warne.
