‘Fans make the sport,’ the line is not a cliche and serves well no matter the sport you are referring to. They are the ones who help in making a moment memorable and iconic.
The recently concluded Lord’s Test match was no different as fans galored. The game was full of intense drama and excitement as players from both the sides did not hold themselves back from verbal exchange.
While India seemed down and out ahead of the final day, they again put on a display of their toughness and resilience and brought themselves back from the dead. England bowed down to India’s spirits as the visitors gained a 1-0 lead in the series.
From KL Rahul’s hard-fought ton to ShamRah show (referring to partnership between Mohammed Shami and Jasprit Bumrah), the Test match was filled with moments that will forever be remembered. The game was no less than an action-packed film with a happy ending.
Cricmaze asked fans their best moments from the match and guess what, our comments section was full of replies. The ever enthusiastic fans shared their favourite moments and we compiled those in this article.

Jay Bhavsar, who is a very famous interviewer and has a Twitter account with handle bhavsarJ2_0, commented under our post and feels Bumrah’s over to James Anderson on Day 3 was the best moment. However, Anderson certainly would not agree with Jay.
The best moment has to be Bumrah's over to Anderson end of day 3. 🔥

Abhishek Chakraborty with the Twitter handle abhi541988 reckons the record-breaking stand between Bumrah and Shami and Mohammed Siraj’s fiery spell were the moments behind India’s iconic victory.
Best moment of yesterday was Shami and Bumrah's magnificent 89 runs unbeaten partnership which pumped up the team and gave it belief that we can win this test match and finish England within 60 overs..Also Siraj's performance with the ball from nowhere he produced key wickets..

Cricketkeeda who holds a Twitter account with handle Cricketkeeda10 enjoyed the most when the Indian crowd in the stands cheered for Shami and Bumrah.
Best moment was all Indians (along with me) in the stands started cheering Bumrah and Shami when they were involved in a war of words!
So, to add to KL's statement: 'You go after one of our guys, all 11 (thousand and more) come back at you'#ENGvIND
