India Dominates England: Jaiswal’s Double Century and Jadeja’s Five-Wicket Haul Seal Record Victory…

India secured its largest-ever Test cricket victory in terms of runs, surpassing the previous record of a 372-run win against New Zealand in 2021 at Wankhede Stadium.

Yashasvi Jaiswal’s remarkable double century, coupled with Ravindra Jadeja’s five-wicket haul, led India to a commanding 434-run triumph over England on the fourth day of the third Test.

Resisting England’s attempt to play aggressively, Indian bowlers, spearheaded by Jadeja (5/41), proved too formidable as they dismissed the tourists for 122 while chasing an imposing 557-run target. With this victory, India now leads the five-match series 2-1.

Jaiswal’s unbeaten 214 off 236 balls, featuring 12 sixes, played a pivotal role in India’s second innings total of 430 for four declared, giving them a substantial lead of 556 runs.

Jadeja capitalized on this foundation, dismantling England’s top order, and with support from Kuldeep Yadav, Jasprit Bumrah, and Ravichandran Ashwin, England found themselves struggling.

Noteworthy dismissals included Ben Duckett’s run-out, Zak Crawley’s leg-before-wicket, and Jadeja’s quick removal of Ollie Pope and Jonny Bairstow.

England’s key players, including Joe Root and Ben Stokes, also fell victim to the Indian bowlers.

In the batting department, Shubman Gill contributed a solid 91, showcasing his class, while Jaiswal’s outstanding performance set several records.

Jaiswal became the first player to hit 20 sixes in a series, surpassing India’s previous record of 48 sixes. He also joined Vinod Kambli and Virat Kohli as the third Indian to score consecutive double centuries in two games.

With this innings, Jaiswal crossed the 500-run mark in just the third Test of the series, accumulating 545 runs at an impressive average of 109. He now leads the current cycle of the ICC World Test Championship in run-scoring, surpassing Australia’s Usman Khawaja.

Debutant Sarfaraz Khan added to India’s brilliance with an unbeaten 68, posing a significant challenge for England’s spinners in the upcoming fourth Test in Ranchi.
