England in tatters as Jadeja sends Stokes packing

Ravindra Jadeja backed up his century in the first innings with a five-wicket haul in the fourth innings to pave the way for India’s biggest Test win by runs – 434 runs. Before India spun a web around England, they spent nearly two sessions stupefying the visitors with the bat via the Mumbai duo of Yashasvi Jaiswal and Sarfaraz Khan. On a benign surface, the pair smashed their way to personal milestones while India amassed a lead of 556 before Rohit Sharma opted to declare.

Mark Wood’s entertaining 33 off 15 balls dragged England past the 100-run mark but that’s all they could manage as Jadeja dismissed the tail-ender to complete his fifer and seal India’s victory which gives them a 2-1 lead in the five-match series.
