HIGHLIGHTS

  • England beat India by 7 wickets and squared the series
  • Ravindra Jadeja scored 104 runs in the first innings
  • Jadeja remained wicket-less in the fifth Test match

India all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja said the rescheduled fifth Test against England was a hard fought series where the competition was at its best and added that the game had its highs and lows.

England beat India by seven wickets and squared the five-match series 2-2, thanks to Joe Root and Jonny Bairstow’s unbeaten 269-run stand for the fourth wicket.

Jadeja, along with Rishabh Pant, helped India recover in their first innings. On the back of their centuries, India took a lead of 132 runs, but failed to build on it. The visitors were able to add only 245 runs in their second innings and set a 378-run target.

“A game which had its highs and lows. Always a great feeling to contribute for my team, even though we fell short. A hard fought series where the competition was at its best,” Jadeja tweeted.

England took the aggressive route, with Alex Lees and Zak Crawley stitching a 107-run opening partnership before Joe Root and Jonny Bairstow took the team to 259/3 at stumps on Day 4. With only 119 runs needed, Root (142*) and Bairstow (114*) gunned down the target in the first session as India failed to break their 269-run partnership for the fourth wicket.

India had begun Day 5 with stand-in captain Jasprit Bumrah and Mohammed Shami and brought in Mohammed Siraj and Shardul Thakur before going to Ravindra Jadeja. However, none could manage to trouble Root and Bairstow.
