Seasoned England pacer James Anderson reflected on his side’s Test series defeat against India, admitting that Rohit Sharma’s men were too good. The Ben Stokes-led side made a stunning start in the series, winning the opening game in Hyderabad by 28 runs. However, the tourists failed to continue the momentum, losing all the remaining games and suffering a 1-4 defeat.

With the series win, India became the first-ever team to overcome England after the ‘Bazball era.’ In addition, it also extended India’s splendid record of being unbeatable at home for 12 years and consolidated their top position in the World Test Championship 2023-25 points table.

“A tough end to the series. India just too good this time. We gave it everything the last couple of months. Love being part of this test team and we’ll keep striving to improve and entertain. Thanks for all the support from back home and especially those who travelled. See you in the summer,” Anderson wrote on Instagram.
