Live Update: #INDvENG 4th Test - Day 1 Photo: Reuters

Dream Debut for Akash Deep

In a stellar initiation into Test cricket, pacer Akash Deep left an indelible mark, claiming three wickets in his opening six overs. England found themselves in a precarious position after winning the toss and opting to bat in the fourth Test against India at the JSCA Stadium in Ranchi.

Early Setback for England

The English side, choosing to bat, suffered a significant setback as Akash Deep, replacing the rested Jasprit Bumrah, proved nearly unplayable in the initial phase of the first session. Despite an early reprieve for Zak Crawley due to an overstep, Akash Deep dismissed Ben Duckett and Ollie Pope before smashing Crawley's off stump.

Captain Stokes Addresses Challenges

England's challenges mounted as their highest wicket-taker, spinner Rehan, returned home for personal reasons, as confirmed by captain Ben Stokes. The team faced a formidable Indian side without key players and navigated the game with an altered lineup.

Decisive Fourth Test in Ranchi

The JSCA Stadium in Ranchi set the stage for the decisive fourth Test between India and England. With India leading the five-match series 2-1, the hosts aimed to clinch victory, potentially sealing the series. On the flip side, an English triumph would level the series at 2-2, setting the scene for an exhilarating finale in Dharamsala.

India's Absences and Bowling Dynamics

India, missing key players such as Jasprit Bumrah and KL Rahul, opted for a strategic resting approach to manage player workloads. Mohammed Siraj took charge of the pace attack, while debutant Akash Deep eyed his coveted Test spot.

Debuts and Batting Resilience for India

Despite the absence of stalwarts like Virat Kohli, KL Rahul, and Shreyas Iyer, India handed debut caps to Rajat Patidar, Dhruv Jurel, and Sarfaraz Khan. Sarfaraz's impressive twin fifties in his debut Test in Rajkot showcased the team's batting resilience, with Jurel also proving his mettle with the bat.

Yashasvi Jaiswal's Dominance

Mumbai's Sarfaraz Khan and Yashasvi Jaiswal made significant contributions to India's batting lineup. Jaiswal's exceptional performance, including two double centuries, solidified his position as the highest run-scorer in the series.

England's Response to Rajkot Defeat

Smarting from a record defeat in Rajkot, England made changes, bringing in seamer Ollie Robinson and spinner Shoaib Bashir. Questions lingered about England's ultra-aggressive approach, prompting captain Ben Stokes to dismiss the backlash. The focus shifted to the pitch conditions in Ranchi as England aimed to revive their series prospects.

Key Highlights for the 4th Test

As the teams geared up for the fourth Test, notable highlights included England's introduction of Ollie Robinson, India's potential absence of Jasprit Bumrah, the anticipation of Akash Deep's international debut, and India's opportunity to seal the series with a victory in Ranchi.
