Indian fans disappointed on 5th day Ind v Eng washout
The total washout of the 5th day of the first test was very disappointing for the 1st test to say the least. It was a gripping test match right from the start and India was the better team for a major part of the 1st test which also had some great performances with the bat and ball with special mention of Joe Root, Bumrah, Anderson, Robinson, Rahul & Jadeja.
India was distinctly in an advantageous position at the end of4th day, needing 157 to win with 9 wickets in hand and virtually the full batting lineup at their disposal though the overhead conditions of the 5th day would have favoured the bowlers and would have been challenging for batting.
As rains thwarted a possible India win, the Indian fans took to social media to vent their disappointment and anger as they felt that India was robbed of a victory. Few tweets below :
