india england

In a nail-biting encounter, India secured a 5-wicket win against England on the fourth day of the fourth Test at the JSCA International Stadium Complex. With this victory, India has taken an unassailable 3-1 lead in the five-match Test series.

Match Highlights of India vs England 4th Test

  • Dhruv Jurel emerged as the hero for India, scoring a maiden half-century in the first innings. His gritty knock of 90 runs helped India narrow England’s lead after they began the day at 219-7.
  • Ravichandran Ashwin spun a web around the English batsmen, claiming a five-wicket haul (5-51) in the second innings. His crucial scalps, along with Kuldeep Yadav’s impressive performance (4-22), restricted England to a paltry total of 145 all out.
  • Opener Zak Crawley was the lone fighter for England, top-scoring with a well-constructed 60 runs. However, the rest of the English batting lineup crumbled against the Indian spinners.
  • In pursuit of a target of 192 runs, India’s opening pair of Rohit Sharma (unbeaten on 24) and Yashasvi Jaiswal (16) laid a solid foundation, reaching 40-0 at stumps on day three.
  • England’s bowlers fought hard, but India’s determination prevailed. Skipper Rohit Sharma led from the front, contributing a crucial 55 runs in the fourth innings.

Final Test

With this victory, India has clinched the series, setting the stage for a thrilling fifth Test in Dharamsala. England will need to regroup and come back stronger to salvage a draw in the series.

The match witnessed some controversial DRS decisions, including an LBW appeal against England captain Joe Root that sparked confusion. Former England skipper Michael Vaughan expressed his surprise at the technology’s ruling, but ultimately, the decision stood.

As the cricketing world holds its breath, India celebrates a hard-fought victory, while England aims to bounce back in the final Test. The battle continues, and fans can expect more drama and excitement in the days to come.

Stay tuned for the fifth and final Test as the teams clash in a high-stakes showdown. The series hangs in the balance, and cricket enthusiasts worldwide eagerly await the thrilling conclusion.
