Yashasvi Jaiswal’s brilliant century puts India ahead against England

Yashasvi Jaiswal’s outstanding century and a strong bowling performance put India in a commanding position against England on the third day of the test match. Jaiswal, along with Shubman Gill, built a solid partnership of 158 runs before Jaiswal had to retire hurt due to back spasms. Gill played a mature innings, supporting Jaiswal’s aggressive play.

Jaiswal, after a cautious start, unleashed his shots, hitting boundaries and reaching his century in just 122 balls. Unfortunately, his celebration led to a back injury, forcing him to retire hurt after scoring 104 runs. Despite this setback, Gill continued his steady performance, securing his second fifty-plus score of the series.

Earlier in the day, India’s bowlers, despite missing R Ashwin, impressed by taking crucial wickets and securing a 126-run first-innings lead. Kuldeep Yadav, in particular, was a constant threat, claiming two wickets in the morning session. The day started with Jasprit Bumrah dismissing Joe Root, and Kuldeep’s sharp turning delivery got Jonny Bairstow out LBW.

Ben Stokes and Ben Foakes resisted for a while, but Stokes eventually fell while attempting a big shot. Foakes followed suit, giving India an advantage. The lower order of England collapsed quickly, thanks to Siraj’s yorkers and Jadeja’s spin, allowing India to establish a significant lead.

Despite some hiccups towards the end of the day, India’s strong performance with the bat and ball has put them in a favorable position in the test match.
