In the present Test series between England and India, Jonny Bairstow kept England in contention. The Indian team’s total of 416 runs was fueled by Rishabh Pant’s 146 runs, Ravindra Jadeja’s first century abroad (104), and captain Jasprit Bumrah’s quickfire, who set a record for most runs scored in an over during a Test series. England was pushed on the back foot by the surprise rise of the Indian team after hanging for 95/5. The Indian team was confident that they could pressure England.
The Indian squad continued to leave the England batting order after finishing their 416 run innings till Jonny Bairstow managed to reach a valiant century. England was kept alive in the pivotal game of the series by Jonny Bairstow’s century. Jonny Bairstow and Virat Kohli got into it during their matchup against the Indian bowlers, and Kohli didn’t hold back when responding to Bairstow in a suitable manner.
