The Indian national cricket team and the England national cricket team are currently facing each other in the fourth match of the five-match test series. The Jharkhand Cricket Association Complex in Ranchi will host the game, which began on Friday (February 23).

If it was England who dominated the first two days of the match, India staged a dominant comeback on day 3 and tilted the game in their favour. On the second day, it looked like the visitors would comfortably seal the match, but now things have changed drastically.

If you look at how things have gone so far in the series, it won’t be a surprise if the game produces another twist in the story on day 4. The game is still alive and well and one thing is certain: an exciting ending to the game, which is a decisive factor of the virtual series.

Day 3 of the game began with Dhruv Jurel (90) and Kuldeep Yadav (28) continuing from where they left off on Day 2. The duo batted well and added 76 runs for the eighth wicket. His stance ensured that India gained some momentum and came close to England’s total.

India’s innings ended at 307, 46 runs short of England’s total. Shoaib Bashir was the pick of the players with his figures of 5/119. With a 46-run lead in the bank, the visitors were expected to adopt an attacking mindset and set a big target for the team to chase.

However, that was not the case as the Indian spinners were all over the England batsmen. Ravichandran Ashwin claimed 5 wickets while Kuldeep Yadav picked 4 wickets as India blanketed the opposition for just 145 runs, setting a target of 192 runs to chase. Zak Crawley (60) was the only settled batsman as he scored a brutal fifty.

In the chase, India captain Rohit Sharma (24*) along with Yashasvi Jaiswal (16*) came out with positive intentions and ensured that the players did not calm down at all. They added an unbeaten stand of 40 runs and ensured that their team ended the day on a high. At stumps, the hosts were 152 runs away from victory.

IND vs ENG: Launch Report and Weather Report for Day 4

Speaking after the end of Day 3 of the Ranchi Test, Ravichandran Ashwin gave an update on the launch. He believes the bounce of the pitch was very low and then the surface also offered spin. In statements to the stations, he explained:

“I think there’s not enough bite on the surface. The bounce is literally around shin height if I can say that, so I had to bowl a lot of side spin, I had to hit the pitch for the first part of the spell and then from the other side I felt like there was a bit further. buys. “I literally had to rewire and it was a mental shift I had to make.”

Ravichandran Ashwin’s words could well be an indication that the pitch will have very little bounce on day 4 and there could also be a sharp turn. Batting will not be easy and the Indian batsmen would be aware of that fact.

Talking about the weather in Ranchi, day 4 of the game is expected to see cloud cover after 1 pm Chances of rain are less and rainfall is expected to be 0%. It is expected that the temperature will be around 26° and the humidity will be around 60% during the day.
