New Delhi: The fourth and final test played between India and England (IND VS ENG) becomes exciting. Where Team India’s heats were seen stunning on day one of the Test, Rishabh Pant managed the heats and played a brilliant century. At the same time, Washington Sundar took responsibility for the team after Pant and played a huge round. However, he once again missed his century.
Washington defeated by century
On the third day of the match, Washington Sundar, together with Axar Patel, further increased Team India’s score. Sundar performed brilliantly with the ball as well as the bat and led India to a big lead.

However, Washington Sundar will be disappointed after his heats. Sundar played an undefeated 96-point shot on 174 balls. Even after not going out, he missed a century by 4 points. In fact, Sundar would have ended his century if Siraj and Ishant Sharma had not gone out. The two players returned to the pavilion without opening an account, which did not allow for a fine century to be completed. Team India scored 365 points in the opening heats.

Sundar, 21, scored 96 points on 174 balls, but was left alone at the other end as the last three wickets fell quickly. This is not the first time that a drummer has failed to complete his century without being fired.
