4th Test Day 5 Eng v Ind: Bumrah, Yadav combine to take India to huge win
India registered a comprehensive 157-run win over England in the fourth Test at The Oval to take an unassailable 2-1 lead in the five-Test series for the Pataudi Trophy.
England resuming at their overnight 77 for no loss collapsed from 100 for no loss to be bowled out for 210 on Monday.
Earlier, England lost their overnight opener Rory Burns (50: 125b, 176m, 5x4) first. Later, Dawid Malan was run-out thanks to a confusion with opener Haseeb Hameed (63: 193b, 6x4). For a while, Hameed was holding up India and even survived a dropped chance by Mohammed Siraj off Ravindra Jadeja. At lunch England was 131 for two.
But post lunch the game turned on its head as England lost four wickets for just six runs in six overs. For a while, captain Joe Root held the innings together. But he too fell to Shardul Thakur.
Chris Woakes fell soon after Root and the game was over bar the shouting at tea.
Post tea the English resistance was ended swiftly by India's seamers.
For India the key wicket-takers were Jasprit Bumrah (2-27), Umesh Yadav (3-60), Ravindra Jadeja (2-50) and Shardul Thakur (2-22).
During his devastating spell in the afternoon session, Bumrah also became the quickest Indian to reach his milestone of 100 Test wickets in 24 matches. He beat Kapil Dev who had reached his milestone in 25 Tests. Bumrah had a six over spell which really turned the Test. His figures read six overs, three maidens, two wickets for six runs.
Jasprit Bumrah addressed a virtual press conference after Day 5 of the fourth Test against England at The Oval, London.
The teams now move to Old Trafford, Manchester for the fifth and final Test which starts on September 10.
