India’s Test record at JSCA International Stadium Complex Ranchi ahead of 4th match against England

As we turn the page on the spectacular cricketing showdown witnessed in Rajkot, the adrenaline-charged India versus England Test series progresses to its next exhilarating chapter at the JSCA International Stadium Complex in Ranchi. The venue stands ready to host the fourth Test match, amidst growing anticipation around whether India can continue their formidable performance or England will stage a daunting comeback.

India’s performance at Rajkot was nothing short of awe-inspiring – marking their biggest victory margin in Test cricket with a colossal win of 434 runs over the English contingent. India’s batting lineup delivered a masterclass, particularly vivid in their first innings showing, which saw a shaky start transformed into a definitive command.

The first innings will be etched into cricketing annals for Rohit Sharma’s exceptional captain’s knock. Despite an early collapse to 33/3, Rohit’s calm resurgence and his well-crafted 131 off 196 balls marked his 11th Test ton. His conscientious approach steered the Indian innings out of troubled waters, ultimately tipping the scales in favor of the home side.

In a display of resilience and skill, star all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja shone upon his return with a compelling performance. His stoic century, amassing 112 from 225 deliveries, underpinned India’s total to an assertive 445. This was achieved after capitalizing on winning the toss and leveraging the advantage of a pitch that smiled favorably on batsmen.

The English camp, aside from the lone resistance of Ben Duckett, grappled to find their footing. The lack of persistence from the visitors’ batsmen saw them constrained to a score of 319 – leaving much to be desired in their quest to match India’s hefty total.

Amplifying the intensity in the second innings, Yashasvi Jaiswal emerged as a revelation. The young batsman’s resplendent double hundred put the game well beyond England’s reach, as India declared at an insurmountable 557, setting a herculean task for the touring team.

The narrative continued to unravel unfavorably for England as the second innings turned dismal. Ravindra Jadeja unleashed havoc with the ball, running through the English batting lineup. The team from the British Isles succumbed to the Indian spin trap, folding for a mere 122 by the conclusion of day four.

The defeat that England suffered in Rajkot now leaves the Ben Stokes-led squad with a mountain to climb. As they approach the pivotal fourth Test, the stakes have never been higher. A victory is imperative if they are to keep their series hopes alive.

The cricket fraternity now has its gaze fixed on the forthcoming contest in Ranchi. With two prior matches played at this venue, India boasts an encouraging record – securing a win and a draw. These numbers augur well for the host nation, hinting that they might just hold the upper hand heading into the upcoming contest.

As the anticipation builds, will the JSCA International Stadium Complex be the stage where India fortifies their dominance, or will England find the resolve to turn the tide? One thing is for certain: cricket aficionados are in for a thrilling Test encounter between these two titans of the game.
