54.2 Ben Stokes to Hardik Pandya

OUT! Caught. Ben Stokes to Hardik Pandya. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot pushing, outside edge to first slip, by Cook. Gobbled up at first slip, England have done it. Stokes is the hero, he loves the big occasion and drinks in the moment with his teammates. What an amazing Test match it has been. Wow. We have witnessed one of the great Test matches over the last few days in Birmingham. With more see-sawing back and forth than a children's playground, it has been impossible to predict and completely engrossing. The match situation was on a knife-edge this morning, but Jimmy Anderson swung the pendulum in England's favour with a wicket in the opening over. A double-wicket maiden from Ben Stokes, including the wicket of the sensational Virat Kohli, whipped the Edgbaston crowd into a frenzy and from there it was always going to be tough for the tourists. Adil Rashid snared Ishant Sharma with a googly before the enigmatic Durham allrounder sealed the victory with his fourth wicket of the innings. Commiserations to India, this will be a very difficult defeat to take but they have played their part in a fantastic contest. They will need to regroup and come back hard at Lord's in the Second Test, which starts on Thursday. Let's hope we have more of the same gripping action there and in the rest of the series.
