England chased down 378 runs to win the rescheduled fifth Test versus India from the
2021 series. Joe Root (142*) and Jonny
Bairstow (114*) helped England get past
the line (378/3).
England's 378 is the highest target successfully chased down against India (Tests). They broke Australia’s record, who chased 339 against India in 1977 (Perth).
Joe Root slammed his 28th Test century on Day 5. He now has the most Test centuries among active cricketers, having left behind Virat Kohli and Steven Smith.
Indian pace spearhead and stand-in captain Jasprit Bumrah completed 100 Test wickets
in SENA countries. He became just the sixth Indian to do so.
Rishabh Pant became the second Indian
wicket-keeper to register a century and a
fifty in the same Test. He emulated Farokh
Engineer's feat, (121, 66 vs ENG, 1973).
