IND vs ENG: Shubman Gill showcases patience when needed

After enduring a 2-1 trail in Rajkot, England were in a do-or-die situation and needed a positive output at any cost in Ranchi to stay alive in the series. However, the keepers of the "Bazball" faltered miserably in vital situations. As a consequence, the team lost the 4th India vs England Test by 5 wickets, and hence they are at the point of no return in the series.

For Team India, Yashasvi Jaiswal once again stood up for the team and put on a crucial 73 in the first innings that proved to be impertinent in the context of the game. Besides Jaiswal, spinners Ravichandran Ashwin and Kuldeep Yadav also delivered when it mattered the most. Moreover, on the final day, Shubman Gill also answered his critics by sticking in the middle to alleviate a tricky situation when wickets were falling on the other end.

Shubman Gill put on an unbeaten 52 on Day 4 of the Test. He took a cautious approach and scored at a steady rate until victory was in the sights. This is Gill's second impactful contribution to the series. Earlier he came to the fore in the 2nd Test, when he registered a much-needed century in the second innings of the match. Both of his contributions have come in the winning cause.
