Team India a historic victory in the fourth Test England at Kennington Oval in London to take a 2-1 lead in the five-match series. Indian bowlers performed excellently to collect England for 210 and defeat them by 157 runs.
Indian versatile player Ravindra Jadeja remarkably exploited the rough spots to riddle the English batsmen. In fact, it was Jadeja’s first wicket on the final day that caused England’s bat to collapse. It all happened after the left-handed English opener sent back Haseeb Hameed for 63.
In the 62nd over of England’s second innings, Jadeja went over the wicket and bowled on the scurvy created outside the leg side. The red leather, after bumping, jerked away to pass Hameed’s defense, only to crush the batsman’s stumps.
