The veteran Indian all-rounder, Ravindra Jadeja said the rescheduled final Test of the 5-match series against England was a hard-fought series and added that the game had its highs and lows. In the 5th Test, England registered a 7-wicket win and squared the five-match series 2-2, owing to the brilliant centuries from Joe Root and Jonny Bairstow’s unbeaten 269-run partnership for the fourth wicket.

Tweeting after the match, Ravindra Jadeja wrote: “A game which had its highs and lows. Always a great feeling to contribute for my team, even though we fell short. A hard-fought series where the competition was at its best.”

England was expected to play dominating cricket and they did as expected, as their openers  Alex Lees and Zak Crawley made a dominating partnership of 107 runs in just 22 overs. Taking forward the momentum, Joe Root and Jonny Bairstow took the team to 259/3 at stumps on Day 4.

With only 119 runs to win the game, Root (142*) and Bairstow (114*) chased down the target in the first session as the Indian bowlers failed to break their 269-run partnership for the fourth wicket.

India started the final day with stand-in skipper Jasprit Bumrah and Mohammed Shami and brought in Mohammed Siraj and Shardul Thakur before going to Ravindra Jadeja. However, none could manage to trouble Root and Bairstow.
