England suffers humiliating defeat against India in Rajkot Test

Posted : 19 February 2024

England suffered a resounding defeat against India on the fourth day of the third Test in Rajkot, marking one of their worst performances under captain Ben Stokes and coach Brendon McCullum. Yashasvi Jaiswal's remarkable innings of 214 not out dismantled the English bowling attack.


Facing an improbable target of 557, England collapsed to a humiliating total of 122, showcasing a lack of resilience in their batting lineup. The 434-run defeat is England's largest in terms of runs since 1934 and stands as India's biggest victory margin of all time.


India's dominance was exemplified by Jaiswal's stellar performance, securing his second consecutive double century in Tests. The opener, who retired hurt on the third evening, returned to the crease and reached a total of 12 sixes, equaling the record for a single Test innings.


Alongside Sarfaraz Khan, who contributed an unbeaten 68, Jaiswal guided India to a declaration at 430-4. Ravindra Jadeja, the left-arm spinner, further compounded England's misery by claiming five wickets for 41 runs, complementing his century in the first innings.


With this win, India takes a 2-1 lead in the series, setting the stage for the fourth Test in Ranchi. A victory for India in the upcoming match would extend their unbeaten home record dating back to 2012.
