The wife of Rohit Sharma, Ritika Sajdeh, publicly thanked the fan for his emotional message after India's thrilling 434-run victory over England in the most recent Rajkot Test, giving them a 2-1 lead in the five-match series.

After losing the first Test in Hyderabad, the Indian squad had a difficult red-ball task at home. Important players like Mohammed Shami and Virat Kohli were not available owing to injury and personal reasons. In addition, star all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja and the wicket-keeper batter KL Rahul haven't played since the first Test, while Ravichandran Ashwin's withdrawal from the third Test was due to a family issue.

India sent in debutants Dhurv Jurel, Sarfaraz Khan, and Rajat Patidar in the series, and they performed well despite the lack of renowned players. Notably, Yashasvi Jaiswal stood out as he amassed 545 runs and scored two double-hundreds throughout the series so far. 

The Indian cricket team will be seen in action against England in the 4th Test on Thursday, February 22, 2024, at the JSCA International Stadium Complex in Ranchi, Jharkhand.
