The ongoing Test series between India and England has well and truly been engaging at the best scene. It was a perfect toast for the fans who experienced edge-of-their-seat moments in patches, especially when the game marched towards the fourth day, just as when the outcome was palpable.

While England had their say in the Test opener in Hyderabad, India made a stellar rebound in the Vizag Test. As things stand, both teams won a game each and with three more Tests to be played, we can expect nothing but competitive spirit from both teams.
