Shubman Gill feasts on ‘English Breakfast’ in Dharamshala, smashes glorious ton

With the Indian batting line-up in such a prolific form, England faces a near-impossible task of salvaging some pride in the series. Their bowlers will need to produce something extraordinary to restrict India and get themselves back into the contest.

India vs England 5th Test, Day 2: A feast for the eyes unfolded at the HPCA Stadium in Dharamshala on day two of the fifth and final Test between India and England. Young opener Shubman Gill served himself a delectable “English Breakfast,” carving his way to a magnificent century.

Facing some friendly bowling from Shoaib Bashir in the 59th over, Shubman Gill unleashed a powerful slog-sweep, sending the ball sailing over the infield for a boundary.

This emphatic stroke not only sealed his fourth Test ton but also drew a proud reaction from his father, who was seen applauding from the stands. The young opener, who had endured a lean patch earlier in the series, has found his rhythm in Vizag and carried that form into Dharamshala.

Double Century Partnership Puts India in Command

Gill’s knock wasn’t the only highlight of the day. Captain Rohit Sharma, leading from the front, notched up his second century of the series, his 12th overall. Following a well-timed flick through midwicket off Tom Hartley, Rohit Sharma reached his three-figure mark, handing the strike back to Gill to complete his century shortly after.

Dominant India Eye Series Win

This dominant display by the Indian openers has put them firmly in control of the Test. With a scorecard that reflects the picturesque backdrop of the Dharamshala stadium, India’s batting prowess has left England with a mountain to climb. The partnership between Rohit Sharma and Shubman Gill has already crossed the 200-run mark, and India is well on course to set a mammoth first-innings total.
