The first Test of the ongoing four-match series between India and England (India vs England) at Chennai has reached an interesting juncture. England have given India a target of 420 runs to win. India will have to score 381 runs in the fourth innings to defeat England, but that is not that easy.
Dust is flying off the pitch in Chennai. Such a huge goal was never achieved on this field. On the fourth day, 15 wickets fell, it is not going to be easy for India to save 9 wickets on the fifth day. However, if India achieves the target of 420 runs in Chennai, it will be the biggest chase in the history of Test cricket.
India will thus become the biggest target-catching team in Test cricket, demolishing the West Indies’ 17-year-old record.
In Test cricket, more than 418 chases have not been completed in the fourth innings till today. West Indies had done this against Australia at St. Jones in 2003. In 1976, he had set a record of 406 runs against the West Indies at Port of Spain. If you look at India’s record in Chennai, it is in favour of it.
In 2008, India achieved the target of 387 runs against England at Chennai. In that match, legendary Sachin Tendulkar had scored a century and the Indian team was able to win the match by 6 wickets, but india have lost one wicket at 39 runs in the second innings.
Rohit Sharma was bowled by England spinner Jack Leach. Rohit Sharma has returned to the pavilion with 12 runs. India have batsmen like Virat Kohli, Cheteshwar Pujara and Rishabh Pant who keep Team India in the match.
England need 9 wickets in 90 overs to win. On the last day, India were 381 runs to win the match. In addition, India will have a great draw option. It will be very difficult to score 381 runs in 90 overs on a stretching pitch in this match, so if the match draws, it will be good for India.
