Team India on a high after Oval win to take lead in Test cricket series

Indian cricket team players are at an all time high after the team's emphatic 157-run win over England in the fourth Test at the Kennington Oval. This was also India's first win in Oval in 50 years.

After the win, the elated Indian team took to Twitter.

"Onto the next one, Team India," Indian captain Virat Kohli tweeted.

"Proud to be part of another memorable victory! Incredible fight and belief shown by the entire team. Onwards and upwards!," wrote Cheteshwar Pujara.

Indian bowlers delivered big time on the last day of the fourth Test at the Kennington Oval on September 6, as the genius of mercurial Jasprit Bumrah and all-round performance by Shardul Thakur in the match helped visitors in defeating England by 157 runs to gain a 2-1 in the five-match series.

"Well, I think the best thing about both the games has been the character the team has shown. We are not looking to survive in this game. We are here to win. Really proud of the character the team has shown. It's quite relative to what you call flat," said Kohli.

"The bowlers were good with the reverse swing today. We believed we could get all ten wickets. We had the belief," he told Sky Sports during the post-match presentation.

"We know what we need to focus on, and we take a collective decision as a group. It's unfortunate they are not here. Everyone is happy with the win. It gives us more motivation to win the next Test. We have the belief; we are just looking forward to the opportunities. The fans have been amazing as well," said Kohli.

India now leads the series 2-1 and will go to Old Trafford, Manchester full of confidence.
