India’s cricket chief Sourav Ganguly has said his country’s win over England proves they are “far ahead” of the rest in the Test world.

The Indian board president said it had been a “great
show” to see Jasprit Bumrah lead the Indian attack to bowl out England for
just 210 on the final day, giving India a 157-run win and a 2-1 lead in the
fivbragse-match series.

“The skill is the difference but the biggest difference
is the absorbing power of pressure. Indian cricket is far ahead than the
rest,” the former national captain wrote on Twitter.

India, second in the world Test rankings, made a remarkable
turnaround after being dismissed for 191, and after England claimed a
first-innings lead of 99.

Rohit Sharma scored 127 as the tourists made 466 in the
second innings.

“What a comeback! The boys just kept bouncing back
after every setback,” batting great Sachin Tendulkar said on Twitter.

“What a way to stamp authority on the last day when
England were 77-0.”

The Times of India newspaper headlined their report
“The Oval Renaissance” while former batsman V.V.S. Laxman said it had
been a “special” win.

The tourists still have worries as coach Ravi Shastri,
bowling coach Bharat Arun and fielding coach R Sridhar tested positive for
coronavirus and will have to stay away from the fifth Test starting Friday.

The Times of India said the Board of Control for Cricket in
India was angry because captain Virat Kohli and other players had not sought
approval to attend the launch of Shastri’s book before the fourth Test.
