The Indian cricket team put up a dominated show against England in their second innings of the third Test in Rajkot. After taking a first-innings lead of 126 runs, the Rohit Sharma-led side came up with a superb show in a bid to set a big target for the guests. Yashasvi Jaiswal scored a majestic double hundred (214 not out) while Shubman Gill (91) and Sarfaraz Khan (68 not out) also contributed heavily as India posted 430 for 4, with an overall lead of 556 runs.

Despite having enough runs on board to win the game, the Indian fans didn’t want Rohit to declare the innings. It seemed as they wanted to see more of Jaiswal and Sarfaraz’s batting as the duo was taking the England bowlers to the cleaners in an entertaining Sunday. When the India captain signalled the two batters about declaration, the fans requested Rohit not to do so.

Jaiswal helped India to its biggest-ever win Sunday, crushing England by 434 runs in the third Test to take a 2-1 lead in the series.

Chasing 557 for victory, England’s batting fell like a pack of cards with the loss of eight wickets in the final session to be dismissed for 122 on day four in Rajkot.

Ravindra Jadeja got Mark Wood out for 33 as the final wicket — and his fifth — and he kissed the pitch as India registered their greatest win in terms of runs.

It was England’s second-biggest Test loss since their 562-run defeat to Australia in 1934.

England lost their openers, including first-innings centurion Ben Duckett run out on four, before tea and Jadeja then rattled the middle-order with his left-arm spin.

Jadeja was named player of the match for his seven wickets in the Test and 112 with the bat in the first innings.
