It was a top-notch Test cricket and performance from India and New Zealand. Virat Kohli and Co emerged victorious after taming the Kiwis by 372 runs in the second and final Test at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai, as the host wrapped up the win by Day 4 on Monday. Consequently, social media celebrated the victory.

While Indian opener Mayank Agarwal ruled with the bat, veteran all-rounder and off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin spun it away from the Kiwis. Although NZ came up with a tough during the opening Test in Kanpur, it was wholly rattled in Mumbai, while it also posted its lowest Test total (62) against the side. As a result, India is off to a series-winning start in the ICC World Test Championship 2021-23.

Meanwhile, Kiwi spinner Ajaz Patel was the talk of the match for having claimed ten wickets in the first innings, thus becoming only the third bowler in the history of the format to do so.
