The series ended 2-2. India were the contenders to win the fifth Test till the fourth day, but the poor batting of the team in the second innings opened the doors for England and a brilliant partnership of 269 runs with Joe Root and Johnny Bairstow gave England a memorable victory. At the beginning of the 5th day. Joe Root scored an unbeaten 142, while Johnny Bairstow also scored an unbeaten 112, his second century in a match.

“I dare say that some young players were a little careless in their approach and that’s a little worrying for me. This can be one of two things: either you want to play that way and think this is the best way to express yourself or you don’t feel the gravity of a particular situation. The latter is very, very dangerous. This clarity belongs to Rahul [Dravid] And Vikram Rathore will try to establish himself with the young players quickly, ”said the former Mumbai player.

Youngsters like Shubman Gill and Shreyas Iyer should take responsibility in Test cricket, said Paranjape. He further said that if Gill had added more runs in the Tests, the outcome of the game would have been in India’s favor. “The way Gill was batting in the first innings, if he had batted like that for 45 minutes, he would have scored 40 runs, so imagine if India had scored 50 runs without loss असता it would have been a different ball game,” he told . Cricket journalist and anchor Jamie Alter during part of a chat show on his glance.

“I think this is an opportunity for the young players in the team to digest the world, the areas of opportunity in front of them and learn from it. The third innings is very stressful, very decisive in such a match and that’s where I think England turned the innings around when Anderson got the gill. It was a big wicket, a turning point in the game, “he added.

Gill scored just 17 and 4 in two innings – both times losing to James Anderson, while sixth-ranked Iyer scored 15 and 19, but both times it was more worrying and he was looking out to sea against a specific strategy.

Until the third innings, the Indian team had a good grip on the match, said Paranjape. “There were two or three pieces in the game where India had to do well. The third innings is very important in Test matches and I think India are cowards and cowards in the third innings. They wanted to get out with more purpose. I think it is up to the young players to stand up and be counted at such times. Many young people have had many opportunities. It’s time to play half a season, a full season, try and think like a captain when you’re at the crease. “

At the start of the Edgbaston Test, the Indian team of young players looked very promising. Rishabh Pant stunned everyone with his superb batting performance, while the other youngsters did not do very well.
