Captain vs. Spinner: Kuldeep's Daring Call Pays Off in Ranchi Thriller

India Vs England 4th Test

India Vs England 4th Test: Kuldeep Yadav’s unwavering trust in his bowling strategy proved decisive on Day 3 of the Ranchi Test, as he single-handedly ripped through the English batting order with a magnificent spell of 4/22. The windup? A fascinating on-field exchange with captain Rohit Sharma that highlighted Kuldeep’s self-belief and his ability to turn the tide.

Ashwin Provides Early Jolts, Kuldeep Takes Over

Ravichandran Ashwin initiated the England collapse with three early wickets, but it was Kuldeep who stole the show later on. After Zak Crawley, looking well-set on 53, took guard, Rohit suggested bringing in a fielder to tighten the cover region. However, Kuldeep, displaying remarkable confidence, opted to keep the gap open, believing it would tempt Crawley into a false stroke.

Bold Decision, Golden Outcome

And his intuition was spot-on! On the very next delivery, Crawley attempted a big shot through the vacant area, only to be completely bamboozled by Kuldeep’s sharp turn, which sent his bails flying. Dinesh Karthik, on commentary duty, confirmed the on-field conversation, revealing the captain-bowler exchange that led to this crucial wicket.

Kuldeep on Fire

This wasn’t a one-off brilliance. Kuldeep continued his rampage, dismissing England captain Ben Stokes before lunch. After the break, he added two more scalps – Tom Hartley and Ollie Robinson – to his tally, leaving England reeling at 145 all out. Ashwin chipped in with a well-deserved five-wicket haul, but it was Kuldeep’s spell that truly turned the tables on England.

India in Control, Rohit & Yashasvi Off to a Flyer

Chasing a modest target of 192, India got off to a brisk start with Rohit Sharma and Yashasvi Jaiswal putting on 40 runs for the opening wicket. With Kuldeep’s heroics and a solid start in the chase, India is firmly in control of the Ranchi Test and on the verge of sealing the series.
