Calcutta: India broke their 15 Test win-less streak overseas to achieve a historic win at Lord’s, and it came after a long wait of 28 years. While some cricketers from world over took to twitter to heap praise on India and on Ishant Sharma, others were disappointed with the way things panned out for England.
Here is what some of them had to say (alphabetically):
