“It’s the same as when we beat India at Lord’s in 2018: the ball turned around, and when it did, it looked like a different pitch when we batted it compared to our opposition. Why? ? Because we have spent 30 years playing. Stuart Broad said, “The ball was rolling in the air. India were bowled out for 107 and 130 and we won by an innings. “
