Leading the English batting lineup was Joe Root, who scored an impressive unbeaten 122 runs, helped by Ollie Robinson, who achieved his maiden Test fifty with 58 runs.

India’s bowlers, especially Ravindra Jadeja with figures of 4-67 and Akash Deep with 3-83, showcased their prowess in managing the English batsmen.

This performance was crucial for India, who now lead the five-Test series 2-1, with the final match set to take place in Dharamsala.

Root, who notched his 31st Test century on the opening day, remained steadfast, guiding England after they found themselves at 112-5 early on.

Robinson, substituting for Mark Wood, played aggressively, reaching his fifty off Jadeja with a well-executed sweep shot. Captain Ben Stokes praised Robinson’s performance and that of his teammates from the dressing room.

Robinson, displaying his skills with the bat, hit nine fours and a six in his innings of 90 balls. His partnership with Root kept the scoreboard ticking, with Robinson taking the initiative by striking boundaries off Mohammed Siraj and Akash Deep.

The innings ended with Shoaib Bashir and James Anderson being dismissed for ducks by Jadeja.

Overall, it was a praiseworthy performance by the India Test Squad, who actually managed the English batsmen and set the stage for their own innings.
