In the 4th Test between India and England, Shubman Gill and Dhruv Jurel steered India to victory, securing their 17th consecutive home series win. Despite a fluctuating match, India’s resilience prevailed, earning them a decisive 3-1 series lead.

England, under Ben Stokes’ captaincy and Brendon McCullum’s coaching, faced their first series loss.

On Day 1, England dominated with Joe Root’s impressive century, his 31st in Tests and 10th against India, setting a new record. Despite a shaky start, Root and Ben Foakes stabilized England’s innings with an 86-run partnership. Debutant Akash Deep’s two quick wickets kept India in the game.

Day 2 saw England extend their lead, led by Root’s century and Ollie Robinson’s maiden Test fifty. India found hope in Tashasvi Jaiswal and Sarfaraz Khan’s partnership, while Shoaib Bashir’s bowling strengthened England’s position. Kuldeep Yadav and Dhruv Jurel’s resilience helped India end the day without further losses.

Day 3 saw India’s resurgence in the match, led by Dhruv Jurel’s gritty batting and stellar bowling performances from Ravichandran Ashwin and Kuldeep Yadav. Despite early setbacks, India clawed back, restricting England’s lead to just 46 runs. In England’s second innings, Ashwin rattled their top order, but Zak Crawley’s fifty provided resistance. However, timely wickets kept India in the game.

Day 4 started with India’s openers, Rohit Sharma and Yashasvi Jaiswal, laying a solid foundation. Shubman Gill and Dhruv Jurel’s composed partnership, marked by Gill’s patient fifty and Jurel’s unbeaten innings, guided India to victory, sealing a memorable win.
