For the second time, India won the ICC World Test Championship 2021-23, defeating England by 157 runs in the 4th Test of the five-match series at The Oval. India had beaten England by 151 runs at Lord's before being thrashed by an innings and 76 runs at Headingley.

England was bowled out 210 in the last Day 5 at The Oval, having resumed their innings on 77/0 in a chase of 368. India got 12 points in the ICC World Test Championship points table as a result of the victory.

They have a total of 26 points from four matches. England is still on 14 points in the ICC World Test Championship with two losses to go along with the Headingley victory.

Both Pakistan and the West Indies have 12 points through two Tests. The two-Test series in Jamaica was split between Pakistan and the West Indies.

On the first day of the ICC WTC match against England at The Oval, India was reduced to 127 for 7. Shardul Thakur's magnificent counter-attacking innings of 57 off 36 balls, though, helped the visitors to a respectable 190. Virat Kohli, the Indian captain, has previously contributed 50 points.

In response, England was reduced to 62 for 5 when Jasprit Burmah returned the first two wickets. Umesh Yadav took three wickets, including England skipper Joe Root's important one. However, England grabbed a substantial 99-run advantage thanks to Ollie Pope (81) and Chris Woakes (50).

Opening batsman Rohit Sharma's maiden overseas Test century placed Team India solidly in the second innings. Cheteshwar Pujara (61), Shikhar Thakur (60), and Rishabh Pant (50) all contributed to India's 466-run total after 148.2 overs of batting.

England's openers added 100 for the first wicket as they attempted to chase down an implausible mark of 368. However, after India gained control, England's resistance did not last long. India established an unassailable 2-1 lead in the five-match ICC World Test Championship 2021-23 series after cleaning them up in 92.2 overs.
