Wood mistimes the slog to find Jaiswal at long-off

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.

Brief Scores: India 445 (Rohit Sharma 131, Ravindra Jadeja 112, Sarfaraz Khan 62; Mark Wood 4-114) & 430/4 decl. (Yashasvi Jaiswal 214*, Shubman Gill 91, Sarfaraz Khan 68*) beat England 319 (Ben Duckett 153; Mohammad Siraj 4-84) & 122 (Mark Wood 33; Ravindra Jadeja 5-41, Kuldeep Yadav 2-19) by 434 runs

Jasprit Bumrah, who was supposed to be rested for the third Test of the ongoing England series, will now be afforded rest in the next Test in Ranchi. Whether he will play the fifth and final Test in Dharamsala could depend on the outcome of the fourth Test, starting on February 23, as per Cricbuzz.
