IND vs ENG: What happened in Ahmedabad that ended the match in 2 days, know the reason


Ahmedabad: In the third Test match played between India and England (IND vs ENG) in Ahmedabad (Virat Kohli), Virat Kohli’s army won a stunning victory by 10 wickets against the British. The real heroes of victory in this match were Axar Patel and Ravichandran Ashwin.

Indian spinners Axar Patel and Ravichandran Ashwin took full advantage of the turning pitch of Narendra Modi Stadium and gave Team India a memorable victory on the second day itself.

Playing his second Test match, Axar Patel took 5 wickets for 32 runs in the second innings at home ground and thus took 11 wickets for 70 runs in the match. At the same time, Ravichandran Ashwin (R Ashwin) took 4 wickets for 48 runs and joined the special club of 400 Test wickets.

England’s team collapsed for 81 runs in the second innings, which is their minimum test score against India. India had a target of 49 runs, which they achieved on the second day in the first hour of the third session without losing wickets. Rohit Sharma (25 *) hit the winning six while Shubman Gill was not out after scoring 15 runs.

In this way, India took a strong step towards making it to the final of the World Test Championship by taking a 2–1 lead in the 4-match series. England are eliminated from the final race due to this defeat. India will get the final ticket against New Zealand at Lord’s in June even if they draw the third Test match to be held from March 4.

Like the first day, the fall of wickets continued on the second day. A total of 17 wickets fell on the second day. India extended their first innings in the morning by 99 runs for 3 wickets and scored 145 runs to get a lead of 33 runs. England were able to score 112 runs in the first innings. He scored his lowest score against India in the second innings. The previous record was 101 runs, which he made at the Oval in 1971.

This is the 22nd time in the history of Test cricket when a Test match ended within 2 days. This is the second time this has happened in India. Earlier in 2018, India defeated Afghanistan in Bangalore in 2 days. Only 140.2 overs were made in this match. This figure is at number 7 in the record of the lowest over in an entire match.

The mood of the pitch was that in the first innings for England, improvised off-spinner Joe Root took 5 for 8 and left-arm spinner Jack Leach took 4 wickets for 54 runs. Done Root made his bowling debut in the second innings.

Akshar, who took 6 wickets in the first innings, took the new ball and bowled Jock Crawley on the first ball and allowed him to play on the wrong line. He became the world’s fourth wicket-taker on the first ball of the innings and India’s second spinner after Ashwin. He also sent Johnny Bairstow to the pavilion on the third ball.

Now it was the turn of Dominic Sibley, the second opener. Ben Stokes (25), caught in the gloves of wicket-keeper Rishabh Pant, touched the ball of Sibli by taking the turn of the letter and hit 3 fours but did not run again in front of Ashwin. The Indian off-spinner dismissed Stokes for the 11th time.

Axar Patel, in front of his home audience, lobbed out Joe Root (19) to lbw out and took 10 wickets in the match. Root had failed to understand the turn of the ball. Oli Pope (12) did not understand how to play Ravichandran Ashwin (R Ashwin) in the second consecutive innings.

Ashwin then took out his 400th wicket in Tests by dismissing Jofra Archer. He is the 16th bowler in the world and fourth bowler of India to reach this milestone. Ashwin became the sixth spinner to achieve this feat. Washington Sundar bowled just 4 balls and wrote 1 wicket in his name.

Earlier, India also lost the last 7 wickets within 31 runs. India’s 5 batsmen reached double digits, with Rohit scoring the maximum 66 runs. Joe Root took 5 wickets in the innings for the first time in his first class career not only in Tests.

Rohit Sharma showed his good form but vice captain Ajinkya Rahane could not run again. Rahane, who often failed in front of left-arm spinners, was dismissed lbw by Leech while Rohit missed out on a sweep from Leach.

After this, Root wreaked havoc and did what Michael Clarke (6 wickets for 9 runs) did in Mumbai in 2004. They sent Pant (1), Sundar (0) and Akshar (0) as soon as they arrived. Ashwin (17) and Ishant Sharma (10) finally added important runs.
