India vs England 2018 Test Series: Joe Root’s England thumped India 4-1 in the recently concluded tour. But very few fans may have spotted Adil Rashid and Moeen Ali run away during the champagne opening time to avoid getting drenched in alcohol. In the video, you can see both the players are totally aware of what is happening around them.
Here is the video.
First, the English captain Joe Root goes forward to collect the prestigious trophy, he then lifts it. That is when four players open the bottle of champagne from behind as Ali and Rashid frisk.
Meanwhile, England beat India by 60 runs in the final Test at Oval to seal the series. It was also Alastair Cook’s farewell Test and he signed off on a high by scoring a century. Root too slammed a century after not getting among the runs in the earlier Tests.
Kohli scored 593 runs in the series and was the lead run-getter for India by far. Cook made this Test memorable by notching up his 33rd ton in his farewell Test. Joe Root, who had not had the best of series, came good in the final Test as he slammed his 14th Test century. For India, the silver lining was debutant Hanuma Vihari who got 56 in his first innings and also picked three wickets.
India had their opportunities early on in the series, when they came close at Edgbaston, but fell 31 runs short and then at Southampton, where India lost by 60 runs. India now takes on West Indies in a few days time in India after the Asia Cup in Dubai.
