IND vs ENG: India won by an innings and 25 runs, 4th test

India is going to be at Lord’s Cricket Ground on 18-22 June, to play with New Zealand in the ICC World Test Championship final.

India defeated England by an innings and 25 runs on the third day of the fourth and final Test to win the series 3–1 at the Narendra Modi Stadium, known as Motera Stadium in Ahmedabad on Saturday. With the series win, India secured their place in the final of the ICC World Test Championship against New Zealand.

In response to England’s first innings total of 205 runs, the hosts scored a mammoth 160-run lead for 294 for seven. Washington Sundar remained unbeaten on 96 runs while Axar Patel scored 43 runs.

For England, the script did not change much as his disciples again found it difficult to negotiate the challenge posed by the Indian spinners.

Dan Lawrence (50) showed the temperament required to counter the spinners. Once his score of 44 was broken, it did not take India any time to wrap up the match and the series.

Left-arm spinner Patel (5/48) and Ravichandran Ashwin (5/47) formed a partnership between all England batsmen.

The two teams will now play a five-match T20 series starting at 12 March at the same venue.
