Three more test matches are left to play in the series with the next test scheduled to be played at SCA Stadium in Rajkot.
England batters did challenge India’s lethal bowling lineup, but two quick wickets at the stroke of lunch on day four put India on top. Kuldeep Yadav dismissed Zak Crawley (73) and Jasprit Bumrah trapped Jonny Bairstow (26) plumb in front. These two wickets stamped the game in India’s favour. Jasprit Bumrah picked up 9 wickets in the game and helped India bounce back in a long series.
