Fourth Test Vs England: 157-Run Win Gives India 2-1 Lead

London: India registered a sensational 157-run victory in the fourth Test against England at The Oval to take an unassailable 2-1 lead in the five-match series. Also, this was India’s first at the venue after 1971.

After 1986, for the first time, India won two Tests in a series in England.

It may be recalled that India had beaten the hosts by 151 runs in the second Test at Lord’s last month.

England had resumed the fifth day on a strong note at 77 for no loss and reached to 131/2 and looked good for draw.

However, pacer Jasprit Bumrah (2/27) and spinner Ravindra Jadeja (2/50) had other plans. They snared four wickets and turned the tide in India’s favour within 35 balls, between 61.3 and 67.2 overs.

Brief scores:

India 191 and 466 vs England 290 and 210 in 92.2 overs (Rory Burns 50, Haseeb Hameed 63, Joe Root 36, Jasprit Bumrah 2/27, Ravindra Jadeja 2/50, Umesh Yadav 3/60, Shardul Thakur 2/22). India won by 157 runs.
