Dominic Sibley and Jos Buttler added a vital 75-run stand for the fifth wicket and helped the visitors ace the run-chase. England’s opening partner Sibley scored a crucial 56 in the successful run-chase while Buttler scored 46.

England will fly to India to play four Tests, 3 ODIs and 5 T20Is. The tour kicks with the Test series and the first match is scheduled to be held on February 5 at MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai. It is still not so sure whether fans will be allowed to enter the stadium.

However, with the decreasing number of coronavirus cases in India, BCCI might as well consult the Indian government to allow a certain percentage of fans.

Sibley who top-scored for England in the run-chase looks forward to a new challenge against India. The likes of Ben Stokes and Jofra Archer return to England squad and it is surely going to be a competitive Test series.

England inflicted 2-0 whitewash on Sri Lanka. On the other hand, India scripted historic Test series victory by conquering the Gabba. This is their second Test series triumph in Australian soil.

“It was nice to spend some time at the crease as I was just trying to build a partnership. I worked hard on playing spin during the winter in England. Had some luck with the review. Watching Joe, the way he has played in this series, it has been incredible. I have changed a couple of things about myself during this series, it takes a lot of courage to do a few of these things.

Just trying to work it out. Jos (Buttler) plays at a higher tempo and he took the pressure off me (during that partnership). It’s a good win. Let’s see what happens against India with a lot of guys coming back in. But scoring some runs has obviously taken some pressure off,” Sibley added at the post-match presentation.
