Root set foot

Ashwin was taking wickets from one end and Joe Root, the best batsman of the England team, had established himself from the other end. He was scoring runs continuously. Jonny Bairstow, who was playing his 100th Test match with Ashwin, seemed to be playing a good innings this time but once again Kuldeep Yadav's spin proved to be an inexplicable puzzle for him. Kuldeep got him LBW. Bairstow scored 39 runs on 31 balls. In his innings he hit three fours and as many sixes. Bumrah brought India closer to victory by dismissing Tom Hartley and Mark Wood in the same over. Ravindra Jadeja gave the ninth blow to England by bowling Bashir. Root was going towards his century but this path was not easy for him because the team did not have wickets. In such a situation, Root wanted to attack and while trying to play a big shot on Kuldeep's ball, he was caught at long. His catch was taken by Bumrah. Root scored 84 runs in 128 balls with the help of 12 fours.

For the Indian team, Ashwin took five wickets for 77 runs in 14 overs. Bumrah and Kuldeep Yadav got two wickets each. Jadeja got one wicket. Kuldeep took five wickets in the first innings. Ashwin had four wickets. Jadeja got one wicket in the first innings also.
