Forming a crucial 49-run partnership with fellow pacer Mohammed Siraj, Ravichandran Ashwin lifted India's score to 286, giving it a mammoth 481-run lead against England in the ongoing second India Vs England Test. The offie scored his fifth Test ton registering 106 runs off just 134 balls. 

Yesterday, he had surpassed former offie Harbhajan Singh's Test wicket tally of 265 wickets after he bowled out the likes of opener Dom Sibley, number three batsman Dan Lawrence, middle-order batsman Ben Stokes and tail-enders Olly Stone, and Stuart Broad. He had previously picked up nine scalps at the very same venue in the previous Test which also included a six-wicket haul. He is now only behind former Indian skipper Anil Kumble, who heads the list with 350 wickets.

Meanwhile, skipper Virat Kohli registered a comeback after getting out at 0 in the last innings, striking 62 off 149 balls. Adding 96 runs for the seventh wicket with Ashwin, Kohli ultimately succumbed to Moeen Ali. England has been set a target of 482 to go 2-0 up in the four-match series.
