On the second day of the third test between India and England, a resilient 57-run partnership for the unbroken eighth wicket between Dhruv Jurel and Ravichandran Ashwin steered India to a total of 388 for seven at lunch. England made early inroads after India resumed their innings at 326-5, dismissing overnight batters Ravindra Jadeja and Kuldeep Yadav. However, Ashwin and debutant Jurel held their ground, keeping India on course for a total surpassing 400.

Dhruv Jurel showcased his batting prowess, reaching 31 not out, including a daring six achieved through an audacious ramp shot against Mark Wood. Meanwhile, Ashwin contributed 25 runs. Notably, Ashwin incurred a penalty of five runs for running down the middle of the pitch, providing England an unexpected advantage.

As England prepared to start their first innings at 5-0, they quickly found success when James Anderson removed the nightwatchman Kuldeep, caught behind for four. Ravindra Jadeja, who had scored a century on the first day, looked surprisingly tentative and gave a return catch to bowler Joe Root after reaching 112, featuring two sixes and nine fours.

Despite the setbacks, Ashwin and Jurel successfully fended off England’s bowling attack, including Mark Wood’s short-ball barrage with a heavily manned leg side. The ongoing five-test series is currently evenly poised at 1-1, adding to the anticipation and significance of each innings in this crucial match.
