India’s score read 215/2 at the start of day four & the visitors hoped to continue their remarkable comeback which they have scripted on the third day of the ENG vs IND 3rd Test 2021, at Leeds on Friday. However, things didn’t end up well as England’s bowlers were at their best form & were quick to wrap up India’s innings in the opening session itself to register an innings & 76 runs win & thereby leveled the five-match series at 1-1 with two games still left.
The Indian Innings wrapped up for 278 as Ollie Robinson registered his five-wicket haul to help hosts register an easy win on Saturday. Craig Overton also contributed with figures of 3/47 while James Anderson scalped one wicket to complete his 400 wickets on home soil. But the star for England was Robinson as he provided the hosts a great start on day four by trapping Pujara in front of wickets. It was a complete misjudgment from Pujara as he went for full delivery & Pujara assumed it’s going to go away from him. England took a DRS after a huge appeal & Cheteshwar Pujara 91 was sent back to the pavilion.
Notably, this was for the sixth time in his career Pujara was dismissed without scoring a century. All hopes were on Captain Virat Kohli as he was heading towards a fifty. But the moment fans were hoping that he would register a match-winning knock, he edged one to the slip cordon. Kohli got dismissed off Robinson’s delivery after scoring 55 runs. Kohli’s dismissal marked the beginning of the end of the visitor’s innings as Anderson dismissed Ajinkya Rahane at 10. Rishabh Pant also failed to make a mark with the bat as he got dismissed for 1 run. Ravindra Jadeja tried his best to delay the defeat but he too got dismissed after scoring a 25 ball 30 runs as the Indian tail failed to deliver.
