On the fourth day of the second India vs England Test at the Dr. Y.S. Rajasekhara Reddy ACA-VDCA Cricket Stadium in Vishakhapatnam, on Monday, February 5, Team India defeated England by a margin of 106 runs.
The men in blue held the Englishmen to 292 runs after setting the visitors a goal of 399 runs. The most runs were scored by opener Zak Crawley, who knocked 73 from 132 deliveries.
With 3/46 to his name Jasprit Bumrah was the most impressive bowler, while Ashwin came back with figures of 3/72.
Rehan became the first wicket to fall for England on Day 4 when he was trapped plumb lbw by Axar in front of the middle-stump. Ollie Pope hit the ground running with his sweep and reverse-sweep off Axar for boundaries. Crawley got his second fifty of the match in 83 balls after dancing down the pitch to chip Axar over mid-off for four.
On Day 3 of the game, riding on Shubman Gill’s third Test century, and some important contributions from Axar Patel and Ashwin, India’s second innings ended at 255 in 78.3 overs.
