In the first match of the four-match Test series, the England team beat the hosts India badly in the Test match played here. The Indian team was trailed by over 200 runs in the first innings itself. After winning the match, England team captain Joe Root told who benefited him the most. Root said that winning the toss in the match and taking all 20 wickets was very good for his team.
The English captain also said that his batsmen also took full advantage of the wicket on the first and second day and put pressure on India by scoring a big score. Root said after the match that winning the toss and taking all 20 wickets in such a situation was very good for the team. We felt that the wicket would be good here and the first partnership helped us a lot. Various players have contributed to the team and this is the most important to win.

Former England captain made this tweet in Hindi if India lost, said- I had already warned
If we want to win then a player has to make a big contribution in the team and I am lucky that I did this work this week. We know that India will try to come back strongly. Root said that our plan was to score over 400. After spending some time on the pitch, I realized that there would be some change in the wicket. In bowling, we were not worried about the run rate. It is pleasant to come here and win the first match.
