India took a thrilling win against England on the final day of the second Test match at Lord’s iconic cricket ground on Monday. Mohammed Siraj was the Indian bowlers’ choice, taking four wickets to help the visitors knock out England for 120, while India recorded a thumping 151 point win to lead 1-0 in the five-match Test series with three more games to play. India’s Board of Control for Cricket (BCCI) took to Twitter on Tuesday to share a video from the Lord’s locker room revealing the “range of emotions” the players went through after the nail-biting match.
“Reliving Lord’s triumph from the locker room. The range of emotions, reactions and aura in the #TeamIndia locker room after the historic win at the @HomeOfCricket,” the BCCI tweeted.

Describing the win, Rohit Sharma said it was not about one or two individuals, but that all 11 players acted when it mattered and delivered for the team.
On Monday, India started Day 5 at 181 to six with England in the lead. The hosts tightened their grip further when Rishabh Pant shoved one to Ollie Robinson’s wicketkeeper in the third over of the day. Robinson quickly struck again to send Ishant Sharma back for 16.
India stared down the course, but Jasprit Bumrah and Mohammed Shami had other ideas as they set an unbeaten 89-point lead to help the visitors out of danger.
Bumrah and Shami’s heroism with the bat gave India the momentum and the bowling unit carried it into the final innings of the Test to join England for a paltry 120 runs.
Both teams now travel to Leeds for the third test match which starts on 25 August.
