Yesterday was a historic day for India who scored 759, their highest-ever total, against anyone. At the same time, it was also the highest total against England by any team. Karun Nair became second Indian batsman, after Sehwag, to score a triple century in a Test match. Almost eight and half years ago, Virender Sehwag piled up 319 runs against South Africa. It was Nair’s third Test and he got his chance because two middle order batsmen were facing injuries. After Nair crossed the 300-runs figure, Kohli declared innings. England had to play for last 12 minutes with a deficit of 282.
This pitch is a nightmare for bowlers, fact that may act as consolation for the troubled souls of English team. However two factors favor India in the final day of this Test. First England will play under pressure of so many runs and a fear of defeat. Secondly, Indian spinners have the capacity to trouble the batsmen even at dead pitches. These two factors make today’s match quite interesting. A thrilling contest between bat and ball can be expected today.
