Responding swiftly, Jaiswal crafted a humorous comeback, saying, “Mereko bhi darr lagta hai,” implying, “I’m also scared [of him].” Rohit Sharma, known for his calm demeanour off the field, exhibits intense focus and determination when playing. His competitiveness is evident as he strives for excellence, expecting nothing less from his teammates.

 

In contrast, England’s premier batter, Joe Root, had endured a challenging series, failing to replicate his usual form in the first three Tests, accumulating only 77 runs in six innings. With England trailing 1-2, Root’s resurgence was crucial for his team’s fortunes.

On Day 1 of the fourth Test, Rohit Sharma lost the toss, allowing England to bat first. Debutant Akash Deep made an immediate impact, dismantling England’s top-order with his impressive bowling display. India’s spinners further compounded England’s woes, reducing them to 112/5 by lunch.

However, Root and wicketkeeper Ben Foakes orchestrated a remarkable recovery, forging a vital 113-run partnership. Despite Foakes departing for 47, Root continued to dominate, eventually reaching his 31st Test century. Notably, it marked his 10th century against India, the most by any player against the Asian giants.

Root remained unbeaten on 106 as England concluded the day at 302/7. With Ollie Robinson providing support with a solid 57 off 89 deliveries, England aimed to push their total beyond 350 or even 400 on Day 2. Yet, they remained cautious, mindful of the challenging pitch conditions that favoured the bowlers.
