The Indian team lost the five-match Test series against England, on Sunday, after their 60-run loss in the 4th Test match at Southampton. The stupendous performances from the England team have earned them praise from all quarters; so much so that the Master Blaster Sachin Tendulkar penned a few words of praise, too, for the winning team!

On Monday, Sachin Tendulkar took to his Twitter account to congratulate the English team. On the microblogging site, he wrote, “Congratulations to the England team! The consistency of their performances and playing crucial moments better resulted in a good series win. Best wishes to the Indian team for the final Test. #ENGvIND.”

Here’s how Sachin Tendulkar Congratulated the England Cricket Team:

India was 2-1 down heading into the 4th match of the series. A resurgent Indian side had just bounced back after a humbling defeat in the Lord’s Test. There remained a silver lining, and it seemed that the number 1 ranked Test team had finally woken up from their slumber!

In the first innings of the Nottingham Test, the Indian bowlers bowled their heart out and restricted the England team to a below-par total. However, all their hard work was undone by the Indian batsman, except for Cheteshwar Pujara who scored an unbeaten century.

In the second innings, the England team showed how dangerous a side they are at home. What happened next, is history. India lost the match by 60 runs and have lost the series too! The 5th Test match between the two sides will begin from September 7. Stay tuned with us for all the latest updates about India vs England 2018 Test Series.
