Day 4 in Chennai turned to be historical day for young Indian batsman Karun Nair. Starting a day on individual score of 71, Karun charged every English bowler and first got his maiden century and then turned that century into triple century. He was full of elegance and class with good strike rate, playing all sides of the ground. Vijay who was batting with Karun last night lost his wicket on 29 but after that Ashwin and Karun tested every bowler of England in heat of Chennai.
In second session England was wicket less and Ashwin scored his another half century and became second Indian after Kapil dev to score 250+ runs and take 25+ wickets in same series. But Butler took a stunner catch of Ashwin(67) on point and brings up a breakthrough just after Tea. Karun on the next side was not in mood to stop and he keep hitting his artistic sweeps, upper cuts, drives and pulls all sides of the ground. Jadeja(51) also scored half century on run a ball and helped Karun to score freely. England team was trying hard to have wickets but Karun comes up with a historical innings and puts 3rd highest score in tests from India.
India declared their innings on 759/7 which is also India‘s highest total in test cricket history. Karun was not out on 303* at the time of declaration. England is trailed by 282 runs and have to play day 5 if they want to save this test match and on the other side Indian bowlers would love to attack and will try to end up series on a great note.
