Not since 2012 has a visiting team tasted series victory in India. England’s Bazballers led by the indomitable Ben Stokes and Brendon McCullum at the helm may have come the closest in the past 15 years, but India just about managed to stave off England’s aggressive brand of cricket

Not since 2012 has a visiting team tasted series victory in India. England’s Bazballers led by the indomitable Ben Stokes and Brendon McCullum at the helm may have come the closest in the past 15 years, but India just about managed to stave off England’s aggressive brand of cricket, which in all honestly, had Bamboozled Rohit Sharma’s India in the first two Test of the current series.

Without their talisman Virat Kohli and preparations marred by a host of injuries, this series was in many ways a real test of their characters of the Indian team but at the end of day four of the 4th Test in Ranchi, as young Dhruv Jurel hit the winning runs, India had conjured up another series win their 17th consecutive series – a dominant run that now extends to 15 years now.

The last time India lost a series at home was to Alastair Cook’s England when the English spin duo of Greame Swann and Monty Panesar had out bowled their Indian counterparts, and Cook had stood tall compiling 562 runs across four Tests at 80.28 – the most for the series.

England had claimed the four-match series 2-1 with wins in the second and the third Tests at Wankhede and Eden Gardens, respectively.

However, since the Eden Gardens loss in December 2012, India went on to loss only four out of the 50 Tests played so far, including the latest Ranchi Test. There is still one more match to go – the 5th Test at Dharamsala, and even though England might have lost the series they still have a chance to return to claim a second victory in the series, something no away team has managed to do against India since 2012, but India being India would not give England an inch even if the series has been sealed.
