Team India made an incredible comeback in the IND vs ENG 4th Test taking place in Ranchi. After a disappointing first-innings display where England completely put the hosts on the backfoot, India managed to rise above the hardships to win the Test by 5 wickets. It was an incredible turnaround by the Indian side who are missing a lot of key players. With the win in Ranchi, India also secured the Test series after taking an unassailable lead in the series. 

India also consolidated their second spot in the World Test Championship (WTC) standing following their five-wicket win against Ben Stokes' England in the fourth Test at Ranchi on Monday. The hosts, led by Rohit Sharma, took an unassailable 3-1 lead in the five-Test series.
