Until then, cheers and goodbye!
Dhruv Jurel is the PLAYER OF THE MATCH for his amazing batting performance and contributions with the gloves as well. He talks about playing the situation well and building a partnership with Shubman Gill in the second innings. He further adds that the credit should also go to the lower-order batters to stick with him in the first innings and get so close to the score of England which gave them a good chance to turn the course of the match. When asked about James Anderson, he says that it's a huge thing to bat against him and he was more focused on the ball than the bowler.
Rohit Sharma, the victorious skipper of India says that it has been a very hard-fought series and it is good to be on the right side. Adds that there were a lot of challenges but they overcame them effectively. Tells that the youngsters have shown great determination, and that shows that they want to be here and take up the international challenge after grinding it out in the domestic circuit. Says that as a captain he always tries to keep an encouraging environment, and the players have responded well to that. Further adds that it is always difficult when you miss key players but the youngsters stepped up well for them and this will give them motivation. Ends by saying that they go to every Test with a view to win it and they will do that in the final Test as well.
Ben Stokes, the captain of England says that it was a great Test match and says that the scoreboard doesn’t give enough credit to the way they played but they have done well to bat first and then pick up and push India back like that. He further adds that he always allows people to come out and express themselves. The young bowlers did really well and there is a lot of work put up with them behind the scenes that is converted into the performances. He talks about the batting being better, especially in the second innings but gives credit to the Indian spinners for bowling so well. End by saying that Joe Root played an incredible knock for them and it is a good sign for the side with the Ashes coming up.
Presentation Time...
Shubman Gill, one of the architects for India's win is up for a chat. He talks about the openers giving a good start which helped them to get over the line. He further adds that this is his first innings in which he has scored a fifty without hitting a four. Tells that the bowlers were bowling really well and were not giving away anything. He mentions that Dhruv Jurel came in and batted really well and rotated the strike well which took so much pressure off the dressing room and off him as well. In the end, he says that the team and the players are really happy with the win.
Day 4 commenced with India firmly in control, as their openers, Rohit Sharma and Yashasvi Jaiswal, orchestrated a solid start, accumulating runs and constructing a formidable partnership. Sharma's impressive fifty laid the foundation for India's pursuit of victory, as the duo combined for a promising 84-run opening stand. However, England's Joe Root intervened, claiming the crucial wicket of Jaiswal to spark a shift in momentum. Tom Hartley's dismissal of Sharma further bolstered England's resurgence, but Shoaib Bashir's double breakthrough after Lunch injected fresh uncertainty into the contest. Despite England's spirited fightback, India's young duo, Shubman Gill and Dhruv Jurel, displayed remarkable composure and resilience, thwarting the visitors' aggressive tactics. Gill notched up an excellent half-century with only two maximums and no boundaries which shows how patient he had to be while Jurel also stayed unbeaten till the end. Their patient partnership of 72 runs guided India across the finish line, securing a memorable victory for the Men in Blue.
Day 3 of the Test match witnessed India's remarkable turnaround, setting the stage for a thrilling conclusion. Dhruv Jurel's resilient innings and a stellar bowling display, headlined by Ravichandran Ashwin's five-wicket haul and Kuldeep Yadav's four-wicket contribution, propelled India into a commanding position. Despite facing early setbacks, India showcased determination and resilience, narrowing England's lead to a mere 46 runs. England, in their second innings, encountered fierce resistance from India's bowlers, with Ashwin's fiery spell dismantling their top order. However, Zak Crawley's counter-attacking fifty provided some stability before India struck back with crucial wickets. As England set a target of 192 runs, India's openers, led by Rohit Sharma and Yashasvi Jaiswal, launched a brisk start, placing them in a favorable position to secure victory on the Final Day.
As Day 2 of the Test match concluded, England emerged as the dominant force, buoyed by commendable performances from Joe Root and Ollie Robinson. Root's masterful century anchored England's innings, while Robinson's spirited batting bolstered the team's total, marking his maiden Test fifty. However, India found solace in the resilient partnership between Yashasvi Jaiswal, who notched up another gritty half-century, and Sarfaraz Khan, offering a glimmer of hope for the hosts. Despite facing setbacks, the duo showcased determination and resolve, setting the stage for an enthralling Day 3. Meanwhile, Shoaib Bashir's stellar bowling effort yielded his best figures in first-class cricket, further solidifying England's position. Conversely, Kuldeep Yadav and Dhruv Jurel's tenacity ensured no further wickets fell before Stumps, hinting at a potential resurgence in India's innings.
On Day 1 of the Test match, England seized control with a dominant performance led by Joe Root's remarkable century, his 31st in Tests and 10th against India, marking the highest by any player against the hosts. Despite early setbacks, Root's resilience alongside Ben Foakes anchored England's innings, forming a crucial partnership of 86 runs. However, India's debutant, Akash Deep, showcased his talent with the ball, claiming two quick wickets and maintaining pressure on the English batters. While England's fightback after a precarious position of 112-5 showcased their determination, India needed to regroup and refine their strategies ahead of Day 2 to capitalize on early breakthroughs and restrict England's imposing total.
What a thrilling victory for India! This match was a rollercoaster ride, with momentum swinging back and forth, but the hosts showed greater resilience, clinching a decisive 3-1 series lead. England will rue missed opportunities, sealing their fate in this match and the series. The partnership between Shubman Gill and Dhruv Jurel proved pivotal in India's win, extending their remarkable streak to 17 consecutive Test series wins at home. England's defeat marks their first series loss under Ben Stokes' captaincy and Brendon McCullum's coaching tenure.

Despite the pressure, Jadeja and Gill have shown maturity and composure, ensuring that India continues to inch closer to their target without further setbacks.

OUT! CAUGHT BEHIND! A huge, huge moment in this game! England gets the massive wicket of the Indian skipper Rohit Sharma. Tom Hartley gives this one some air, full and on off, Rohit Sharma skips down the track to defend, but gets beaten by the flight and the turn away takes a slight edge to Ben Foakes who collects it behind the stumps and breaks the stumps too. Even if he did not get the edge, he would have been stumped. India two down and still needs 93 runs to win!

England got the breakthrough and they are trying hard to build on that. A wicket or two here in quick succession will make things a lot more interesting here. An exciting phase of cricket awaits us.

We are all set to begin Day 4! This is going to be the Final Day of this Test as India needs 152 runs while England have to take all 10 wickets. The openers, Rohit Sharma and Yashasvi Jaiswal will resume the batting for the hosts while James Anderson will start proceedings with the ball. Let's play...
England, on the other hand, will be eager to stage a comeback and turn the tide in their favor. The onus will be on the young spin duo of Shoaib Bashir and Tom Hartley and they need to get early breakthroughs to make a game out of this while Joe Root will be crucial too along with the support of the pacers. The tension is palpable, and the stakes couldn't be higher, as India seeks to clinch victory and seal the series, while England aims to stage a fightback and level the scores. Strap yourselves in for another day of gripping Test cricket action as the players take to the field. Let the battle commence.
India made a brilliant turnaround in the game with Ravichandran Ashwin's devastating spell, yielding a five-wicket haul, and Kuldeep Yadav's exceptional bowling reduced the visitors to a mere 145 in their second innings. The hosts' dominant display with the ball left them with a realistic chance of clinching victory. As we embark on the fourth day's play, all eyes will be on India's openers, Captain Rohit Sharma and Yashasvi Jaiswal, who looked composed at the crease during yesterday's stumps. However, the pitch conditions, characterized by sharp spin and occasional low bounce, pose a formidable challenge for the battersas they look to chase down 192 to seal the series.
Good morning, cricket enthusiasts! Welcome to the start of what promises to be an exhilarating Day 4 of the fourth Test between India and England here in Ranchi. The stage is set for a thrilling conclusion to this captivating match, with India requiring 152 runs to secure victory with all 10 wickets still intact. Yesterday witnessed a remarkable turnaround for India, orchestrated by the heroic performances of Kuldeep Yadav, Ravichandran Ashwin, and Dhruv Jurel. Jurel's magnificent innings of 90 runs off 149 balls propelled India to a total of 307, setting the stage for an intriguing chase. His partnership with Kuldeep, who displayed incredible patience and resilience in his 131-ball vigil, proved instrumental in India's recovery.
... DAY 4, SESSION 1 ...
Right then, that wraps up an exhilarating Day 3 of this Test match, marked by India's impressive turnaround and commanding position. England faces an uphill battle, needing early breakthroughs to keep their hopes alive. Day 4 promises to be decisive, with the likelihood of a result looming large. It will be starting on 26th February, Monday at 9:30 am IST (4 am GMT). Join us for what promises to be an action-packed continuation. Cheers!
Ravichandran Ashwin, the pick of the bowlers for India is up for a chat. He says that he really enjoyed bowling with the new ball and it worked really well for the team. He further talks about the surface being two-paced and has started to stay low on occasion. He adds that when he got his length right he was looking not to give away runs. Ends by talking about Kuldeep Yadaw being a brilliant bowler and getting those 4 wickets for the side along with the determination he has shown with the bat.
India dominated the third session, led by Ravindra Jadeja's early breakthrough of Jonny Bairstow after Tea. Despite Ben Foakes' resilience, England struggled to extend their lead, eventually getting bowled out setting a target of 192 runs with Ravichandran Ashwin claiming yet another five-wicket haul. In pursuit of the target, India's openers Rohit Sharma and Yashasvi Jaiswal got off to a blazing start, quickly reducing the required runs. The Men in Blue now need 152 runs with all wickets in hand and are firm favourites to get over the line.
England, aiming to build a substantial lead, faced a stern challenge in their second innings post-Lunch, with Rohit Sharma's aggressive tactics thwarting their intentions. Ravichandran Ashwin capitalized on the opportunity, wreaking havoc by dismissing Ben Duckett and Ollie Pope in consecutive deliveries, before claiming the prized wicket of Joe Root shortly thereafter. Despite the setbacks, Zak Crawley showcased resilience, launching a counter-attacking innings to reach a well-deserved fifty. Supported initially by Root and later by Jonny Bairstow, Crawley's efforts provided stability until Kuldeep Yadav's delivery saw him depart. Kuldeep continued to trouble England, snaring the crucial wicket of skipper Ben Stokes, who survived several close calls before his dismissal. With the lead stretching beyond 150 runs, the responsibility fell on Bairstow and Ben Foakes to extend England's advantage further.
India displayed remarkable resilience and determination in the opening session, as Dhruv Jurel and Kuldeep Yadav steadily chipped away at England's lead. Kuldeep's patient innings began to wear down the English bowlers, while Jurel maintained a steady flow of runs, reaching his maiden Test fifty. However, Kuldeep's dismissal after drinks halted their momentum, but not before adding a vital 76 runs with the young wicketkeeper-batter. Jurel then adjusted his approach, taking on the bowlers with aggressive strokes. Shoaib Bashir, continuing his impressive form, claimed a five-wicket haul by dismissing Akash Deep, while a brilliant delivery from Tom Hartley dashed Jurel's hopes of a maiden Test century, falling just 10 runs short. Despite this, Jurel's valiant effort propelled India significantly closer to England's total, conceding only a narrow lead of 46 runs.
India dominated proceedings on the 'Moving Day', asserting their dominance with a commanding performance. Dhruv Jurel's impressive 90 set the tone, supported by a stellar bowling effort led by Ravichandran Ashwin's five-wicket haul and Kuldeep Yadav's four-wicket contribution. England finds themselves on the back foot, outplayed by the hosts and facing the prospect of a series defeat.
