Pataudi Trophy 2021, 3rd Test: Here are the records scripted on Day 4
India failed to keep up with the winning momentum, succumbing to an innings and 76-run defeat to England in the third Test of the Pataudi Trophy in Leeds. Consequently, certain records were scripted.
It was a reality check for India, as it suffered an innings and 76-run defeat to England on Day 4 of the third Test of the Pataudi Trophy 2021 at Headingley in Leeds on Saturday. While the five-Test series is levelled 1-1, things would only get interesting from here as we look at the scripted records on Day 4.
Chetewshwar Pujara records an unwanted
Pujara was dismissed for his overnight score of 91. Consequently, it was the sixth instance of him failing to do so, which the most for India, as he surpassed Rahul Dravid's five. He also became the fifth Indian failing to convert an overnight 90 into a 100 after Ajit Wadekar, Sachin Tendulkar, Gautam Gambhir and Murali Vijay.
Virat Kohli gets a first since 2017 and a rare one
Kohli survived a leg-before decision after successfully reviewing it. While he has traditionally not been good at it, it was the first time since 2017 that he got a decision overturned as a batsman. It was also only the second time India lost a Test after Kohli won the toss, with the other being in Australia last year. Also, it was his second innings defeat under Kohli, with the last being in 2018 against England as well.
James Anderson rules at home
Anderson claimed his 400th Test wicket at home, thus becoming only the second bowler after Muttiah Muralitharan (493) to do so.
Fewest by India after the fourth wicket
India could only manage 63 runs following the fourth wicket in this Test in both the innings. It was the second-fewest by India, with its fewest being 41 against Australia in 2016-17.
Joe Root gels as English Test skipper
It was Root's 27th win as Test skipper, thus making him the most successful English Test captain, going past Michael Vaughan (26).
India had won the toss and elected to bat but could not manage more than 78. England, on the other hand, scored 432 through yet another Root century. As for the second innings, India produced a fight but could only manage 278, rattled by pacer Ollie Robinson's five-for and defeated by an innings.
Brief scores: India 78 & 278 (Rohit-59, Pujara- 91, Kohli- 55; Robinson- 5/65, Oerton- 3/47) lost to England 432 (Hameed- 68, Burns- 61, Malan- 70, Root- 121; Shami- 3/87) by an innings and 76 runs.
