In a gripping display of spin prowess, India’s R Ashwin spun a web around the English batsmen, restricting them to a mere 145 runs in the second innings of the fourth cricket test. The spin maestro claimed five crucial wickets, leaving the visitors with a modest target of 192 runs for victory.

After England secured a 46-run lead in the first innings, India faced the challenge of chasing down the target on the third day. By the day’s end, India had notched up 40 runs without losing a wicket. The opening duo of Rohit Sharma (24 runs) and Jaiswal (16 runs) showcased resilience, but the team still requires 152 more runs to seal the victory.
