In a thrilling encounter at the Himachal Pradesh Cricket Association (HPCA) Stadium, India secured a resounding victory against England in the fifth and final Test match. The hosts clinched the series 4-1, showcasing their dominance on home soil.

Ashwin’s Heroics:

India’s veteran off-spinner, Ravichandran Ashwin, etched his name in the annals of cricket history during his 100th Test appearance. Ashwin’s performance was nothing short of spectacular. In England’s second innings, he wreaked havoc, claiming a magnificent five-wicket haul. His mastery over the red cherry left the English batters bewildered and contributed significantly to India’s triumph.

Shubman Gill’s Century:

Young batting sensation Shubman Gill continued his impressive form, notching up a brilliant century. Gill’s aggressive strokeplay and impeccable timing saw him score 110 runs off 150 balls. His partnership with opener Rohit Sharma, who also scored a century (103 runs from 162 balls), laid the foundation for India’s commanding position.

The Decisive Innings:

The visitors struggled to cope with the relentless Indian attack, and Ashwin’s spin wizardry compounded their woes. The match concluded with England being bowled out for a mere 195 runs in their second innings, handing India an emphatic victory by an innings and 64 runs.

Series Triumph:

India’s comprehensive win in the fifth Test sealed the series, reaffirming their supremacy in the longest format of the game. The crowd at Dharamsala erupted in joy as the Indian team celebrated their hard-fought victory.
