Rohit Sharma‘s disappointment was visible as Yashasvi Jaiswal ended up gifting his wicket to Joe Root on Day 4 of the fourth Test match between India and England in Ranchi on Monday. Jaiswal played brilliantly and was off to a great start when he miscued a simple shot off Root’s bowling and James Anderson pulled off a good catch to end his stay at the crease after scoring 37 off 44 deliveries. Rohit was upset with how Jaiswal got dismissed despite getting a great start and the India skipper even slammed his bat on the pitch in frustration as the youngster made his way back to the dressing room.

India’s home supremacy weathered the ‘Bazball’ storm as Rohit Sharma’s men secured a hard-fought five-wicket win over England in the fourth and penultimate Test for a 17th consecutive series triumph in their own backyard, handing a harsh reality check to the visitors’ unidimensional approach.

Overnight 40/0 in a chase of 192 here, India romped home after surviving a few hiccups with the opening duo of skipper Rohit Sharma (55 off 81 balls) and Yashasvi Jaiswal (37 of 44 balls) providing the perfect platform for others to build with their 84-run stand on day four of the match.

There were some jitters after the two departed in close succession followed by Rajat Patidar and Ravindra Jadeja‘s dismissal but Shubman Gill (52 not out) and Dhruv Jurel (39 not out) guided the side past the finishing line with an unbeaten 72-run partnership.

Left-arm spinner Tom Hartley (1/64) took the prized scalp of Rohit, while Shoaib Bashir was the most successful English bowler, scalping 3/79 in the second innings for a match haul of eight wickets.

India lead 3-1 in the series with the last game scheduled in Dharamsala from March 7. The team’s last home series loss was a 1-2 defeat to an Alastair Cook-led England in 2012-13. Since then, India have won 39 out of 50 Tests at home.
