India have levelled their test series with England 1-1 after bowling them out for 292 in the last innings of the second test, winning the second test. After being set a target of 399, England were bowled out with Jasprit Bumrah taking the last wicket to guide his side to the win by 106 runs in Vizag.
Bumrah was named the man of the match for his 6/45 and 3/46 spells across the two innings. The pacer was joined by veteran spinner Ravichandran Ashwin, who made history by being India’s leading wicket taker against England, achieving the feat on Day four of the test.
India defeat England in second test, levelling series 1-1
Yashasvi Jaiswal made headlines in the test by scoring an eye-catching 209 runs in the game. He is the third-youngest batter in Indian history to score a double century, and that too in only his sixth test match. No other Indian batter was able to cross 40 in the first innings, which made his achievement even more vital for the game.
The second innings saw Shubman Gill step up to score a century, helping India set a reasonable target for their opponents.
England captain Ben Stokes had a controversial take on the decisions made in the game, however. He accused DRS of getting the Zack Crawley LBW decision wrong, with Crawley emerging as the top scorer in both innings with a score of 75 and 76 in the first and second innings respectively.
But the complaints count for naught as England will have to regroup and aim to win the third match of the five-test series to end the home team’s domination at home.
