IND vs ENG Score

India’s Remarkable Recovery:

Day 3 belonged to India, thanks to a stellar performance from the lower middle order and a clinical bowling display. Dhruv Jurel’s fighting 90 (149 balls) and a crucial 76-run partnership with Kuldeep Yadav (28) helped India recover from a precarious 177-7. Ravichandran Ashwin (5/45) then dismantled the English batting order, ably supported by Kuldeep Yadav’s 4/44.

England’s Bowling Promise Needs Early Wickets:

Despite India’s strong position, England can still fight back. Their bowling attack showed promise, with Shoaib Bashir claiming his maiden five-wicket haul (5/119) and Tom Hartley bagging three wickets (3/68). However, they desperately need early wickets on Day 4 to put any pressure on the in-form Indian openers, Rohit Sharma (24*) and Yashasvi Jaiswal (16*).

Key Players and Pitch Conditions:

Rohit Sharma and his opening partner Jaiswal will be crucial for India’s success. Their ability to navigate the early spells and build a solid foundation will be vital. For England, dismissing them early and exposing the middle order remains their best chance. The pitch is still expected to offer assistance to the spinners, making the role of Ashwin and Kuldeep crucial throughout the day.

Thrilling Day 4 Awaits: India vs England

With India needing just a couple of sessions to claim victory and England needing a near-miraculous comeback, Day 4 promises to be a thrilling encounter. The outcome of this match will not only decide the fate of the series but also set the tone for the upcoming matches and the broader cricketing rivalry between the two nations.
