Team India came undone in the last two days to suffer probably their worst loss in Tests at home in recent times given they were ahead by 190 runs at one point. It was a Test of two halves with India winning the first two days and England the last two and eventually the game as defensive captaincy, poor fielding and lack of application from the batters were key reasons for India's downfall in Hyderabad. 

Ollie Pope was at the helm of the proceedings which kick-started England's fightback with the bat. Pope smashed 196 in the second innings while

stitching valuable partnerships with Ben Foakes, Rehan Ahmed and Tom Hartley and the latter proved his worth with the ball in the second as he registered figures of 7/62.

Apart from that Ashwin-KS Bharat stand, India didn't like chasing the target at all and eventually they fell short by 28 runs and England took a 1-0 lead.

The Three Lions won the match by 28 runs to take a crucial 1-0 lead in the 5-match series.

"It's unbelievable. Not going to sink in for a while. I'm over the moon,” Hartley said after the match.
