India vs England 3rd Test Nottingham: England cricket’s official supporting outfit Barmy Army got bashed on Twitter after their post did not go down well with fans. The Twitter handle of Barmy Army took to Twitter after Day 4 and their post read, “Only Rain Can Save India”. It was a quirky tweet as India needed a solitary wicket to win at Nottingham and hence the tweet was way too weird.

Meanwhile, India on Wednesday completed the formalities and took the final England wicket to crush the hosts by a huge margin of 203 runs in the third Test of the ongoing five-match series at Trent Bridge.
Resuming at 311-9 on Day Five, England’s second inning lasted just 17 balls in the first session before off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin took the wicket of James Anderson (11) as England were bowled out for 317. Adil Rashid remained not out at 33.
“A complete Test for us. There was no panic, and we were outplayed in only one game out of the last 5, and that was Lord’s. We dominated in this game because we put runs on the board and then the bowlers did well, they were waiting and ready, even Ashwin did well with his injury. The bowling was ready to take 20 wickets again, and I’m glad the batsmen stepped up. So we, as batsmen, did well to give them a cushion for the bowlers to go hard,” said captain Kohli in the post-match presentation.
