Jonny Bairstow belts M Siraj for three consecutive fours

Joe Root and Jonny Bairstow crafted centuries to make light work of what was England's highest successful run chase in Tests to level the five-match series 2-2 against India. After having reigned supreme in the final session's play on Day 4, the duo carried on with an air of assurance in the morning session of Day 5 when India's bowlers just couldn't find a way through the Yorkshire pair. India had a reason for some optimism when they jogged out on Day 5, as the conditions were overcast and the floodlights turned on. But such was their dominance that Bairstow even hit M Siraj for three consecutive fours in the process.
