India vs England 2nd Test

IND vs ENG, 2nd Test Day 4 : India won the second Test in Visakhapatnam by 106 runs because to a brilliant finish from Jasprit Bumrah, who took wicket number three of the innings. As a result, India has tied the five-match Test series at one. The third match is set to begin on February 15 in Rajkot. Throughout the day, England batted in two different ways in the first and second sessions.

In the opening session, the visitors came out swinging, and although they initially applied pressure to the Indians, the hosts stormed back with a quick burst of wickets in the last moments of the session. Ben Stokes, the captain, and Ben Foakes appeared to be trying to grind their way through to Tea in the second, though. But Stokes ultimately went down as a result of a superb direct hit from Shreyas Iyer, somewhat assisted by some careless running by the England skipper.
