IND vs ENG: New records are being made every day in the India vs England series. Some record is made in every match. Be it a bowler or a batsman, Team India seems to be completely dominating the British against the British. Meanwhile, the Indian cricket team has made another new record in the Dharamsala Test being played against England. Before this, India has done this thrice in the history of Test cricket, but this has happened for the first time against England. From this you can understand how the Indian team is performing.

Top 5 batsmen of Team India played innings of more than 50 runs.

The special thing about the Test match being played in Dharamshala is that the top 5 batsmen of the Indian team have played at least an inning of more than 50 runs. Out of these, Rohit Sharma and Shubman Gill have even played century innings. Apart from this, Yashasvi Jaiswal, Sarfaraz Khan and Devdutt Padikkal also completed their respective half-centuries. The interesting thing in this is that while Sarfaraz Khan is playing only his third match, this is the debut test for Devdutt Padikkal. Padikkal completed his half-century in a fearless manner by hitting a six.

Such a miracle happened for the first time in the year 1998

Talking about the first one, India had achieved this feat for the first time in the year 1998. When the Australian team was in front in Kolkata. In this match, VVS Laxman, who came as an opening batsman, scored 95 runs, Navjot Singh Sidhu played 97 runs, Rahul Dravid played 86 runs, Sachin Tendulkar played 79 runs and the then captain Mohammad Azharuddin played a strong inning of 163 runs. After this, Sourav Ganguly, who came to play at number 6, also scored 65 runs. India won this match by an innings and 219 runs.

The feat happened again in the year 1999

After this, the same feat was repeated again in the year 1999. This time the record was made in the second innings of the match against New Zealand in Mohali. Devang Gandhi scored 75, Sadagopan Ramesh scored 73, Rahul Dravid scored 144, Captain Sachin Tendulkar scored 126 and Sourav Ganguly scored 64 runs. However, this match ended in a draw.

Karisma happened again in the year 2009

This did not happen for a long time after this, but it happened again in the year 2009. This time the Sri Lankan team was in front in Mumbai. In this match, Murali Vijay scored 87 runs, Virender Sehwag scored 293 runs, Rahul Dravid scored 74 runs, Sachin Tendulkar scored 53 runs and VVS Laxman scored 62 runs. India had managed to win this match by an innings and 24 runs.

History written for the first time against England

Now after about 15 years, the same thing has happened again. This time Yashasvi Jaiswal has played brilliant innings of 57 runs, Rohit Sharma 103, Shubman Gill 110, Devdutt Padikkal 65 and Sarfaraz Khan 56 runs. It is clear that India has done this feat for the first time against England. In this way, the English team has been badly pushed on the back foot at this time. India has got a big lead on the basis of first innings. In such a situation, India's victory seems almost certain. All that remains to be seen is whether victory is won by innings or by wickets. How long the match will last is also going to be interesting.
