KL Rahul, who did not play much for India in the inaugural ICC World Test Championship, became the first Indian player to win the Man of the Match award in the new WTC 2021-23 cycle.

Rahul’s century in the first innings helped India post a 364-run total. Joe Root’s unbeaten knock of 180 runs gave England a 27-run first-innings lead. Meanwhile, brilliant batting performances from Cheteshwar Pujara, Ajinkya Rahane, Mohammed Shami and Jasprit Bumrah ensured England had to chase a 272-run target to win.

The home team had to play 60 overs to avoid a defeat. However, they lost all their wickets in 51.5 overs.
