Recap of India’s Last Test Match in Ranchi: Team India, who just achieved their most substantial Test victory to date by 434 runs, will attempt to secure the five-match series with a victory in the fourth Test match against England. Get ready for the test match at the JSCA International Stadium Complex in Ranchi on February 23, 2024.

Ranchi, India, has thus far hosted two Test matches. Although India’s inaugural Test at the venue in 2017 was a draw against Australia, their most recent Test against South Africa was a victory in 2019.

In general, the pitch at JSCA Stadium provides an excellent batting surface. Nevertheless, it is not considered an absolute sanctuary for batting. Spinners and sluggish bowlers benefit from the ball gripping and approaching the bat at a slightly slower rate than usual.

In October 2019, India last played a Test in Ranchi against South Africa. The Indian team’s exceptional batting and bowling abilities were showcased in the match, leading to a decisive triumph by an innings and 202 runs in the three-match series.

Ravit Sharma, who was making his debut in Tests, stole the show with a magnificent double century (212). With 28 fours and 6 sixes, his innings laid the groundwork for India’s enormous first-innings total of 497/9.

With their lower-order runs, Mayank Agarwal (58), Ajinkya Rahane (115), and Ravindra Jadeja (51) made additional contributions.

In striking contrast, South Africa struggled miserably with the bat. Indian bowlers destroyed their ailing batting order, which had continued throughout the series.

Mohammed Shami (3/55) and Umesh Yadav (3/37) led the bowling attack, with Shahbaz Nadeem taking two wickets and contributing to a crucial run-out.

India won easily in four days, as South Africa was bowled for 162 and 133 in their two innings. This win also confirmed Virat Kohli’s Test cricket dominance and showed India’s overall strength.

The England playing XI for the fourth Test has been announced.

Before the Ranchi Test, England released their playing XI on Thursday, February 22nd. The visiting team replaced Mark Wood and Rehan Ahmed with Ollie Robinson and Shoaib Bashir since the third Test.

Robinson played his last Test match at home in July during the Ashes, so England is glad to welcome him back. With his addition, England maintains its two-pacer setup.

Bashir debuted in the second Test and conceded runs at 4.08 in three matches before getting replaced.

After a humbling loss in Rajkot, Ben Stokes’ team will try to dominate in the next encounter.

England’s 4th Test team against India includes Zak Crawley, Ben Duckett, Ollie Pope, Joe Root, Jonny Bairstow, Ben Stokes (c), Ben Foakes (wk), Tom Hartley, Ollie Robinson, Shoaib Bashir, and James Anderson.
