Fourth Test between India and England

Facing the challenge after England's Ben Stokes took the second new ball, the duo has shown resilience with an unbeaten partnership. Kuldeep, batting on 17 off 72 balls, and Jurel, unbeaten on 30 off 58 deliveries, aim to stabilize India's innings after the early setbacks.


On Day 2, spinner Shoaib Bashir's four-wicket haul rattled India, with in-form Yashasvi Jaiswal's 73 being the highlight. Despite Jaiswal's promising innings, India finds themselves trailing England by 134 runs.


As the match progresses, Jurel and Kuldeep's partnership becomes crucial for India's fortunes. Holding fort through the final hour of play on Day 2, they managed to guide India to 219/7 at stumps. However, with England still holding a comfortable lead, curtailing this partnership early in the morning session becomes imperative for the visitors.


India faced early setbacks in the third session of Day 2, with Jaiswal and Sarfaraz departing after promising starts. However, the duo of Shubman Gill and Jaiswal steadied the ship with an 82-run partnership for the second wicket. Despite Gill's dismissal for 38, India remained resilient, banking on contributions from the lower order.


England's innings saw a resilient century from Joe Root, who remained unbeaten on 122, guiding his team to a total of 353. However, Akash Deep's fiery debut spell and Ravindra Jadeja's timely breakthroughs limited England's progress.


Looking ahead, India faces the challenge of maintaining their momentum, especially with key players like Jasprit Bumrah unavailable. The contributions of debutants like Akash Deep, along with the resilience of Jurel and Kuldeep, will be pivotal as India seeks to secure a series victory.


Meanwhile, England aims to capitalize on their lead and push for a comeback to level the series. With Stokes' return to bowling adding depth to their attack, the visitors look to pose a formidable challenge to India's batting lineup.


As the Ranchi Test unfolds, both teams strive to seize control and shape the outcome of the series. With the match delicately poised, every partnership and wicket becomes crucial in determining the course of play.
