In cricket, England were 45 for 3 against India on the opening day in the fourth and final Test match at Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad, when reports last came in. From the very beginning, the game of dust bowl started as left-arm spinner Axar Patel scalped two wickets and put the visitors on back foot.
Earlier, England won the toss and opted to bat first. India made one change, Siraj replaced Jasprit Bumrah. Skipper Virat Kohli’s team need a win or a draw to book a slot with New Zealand in the inaugural World Test Championship final.
An England win would put Australia into the decider at Lord’s in June. In that case, Australia will face its trans-Tasmanian neighbour New Zealand.
