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.

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.
