India vs England 4th Test Southampton: England beat India by 60 runs to win at Southampton and in the process win the five-match Test series 3-1. But, did you spot Ben Stokes punching Adil Rashid on the face? Well, the incident took place when Ravichandran Ashwin was given out leg before wicket and the batsman promptly opted for a review.
The review showed he was out, once the big screen showed the result England knew they had won the series. Ben Stokes went wild while celebrating as he could not keep a lid on his emotions and by mistake, he landed a punch on Rashid’s face.

It was not done on purpose, it was just the excitement of the occasion that got the better of Stokes. It turns out the ‘willy-nilly high five’ is not the most dangerous way to celebrate a wicket. Adil Rashid can sure explain that.
Here is the video of the incident.
Unfortunately, it was not a Test match Rashid would like to remember as he went wicketless.
Meanwhile, Kohli brought up 500 runs in the series, becoming the only Indian to do so against England in a Test series. He also brought up 4000 Test runs as a captain just goes to show his form. He also became the fastest to 4000 Test runs as a captain. Now he also holds the record of being the only Asian captain to have scored 500 or more runs in a series against England. Moeen Ali bagged the Man of the Match for picking nine wickets in the Test. The performance was also laudable as he was making a comeback to the side.
The last Test begins on 7th September at Oval, where India will play to salvage pride.
