India beat England by 434 runs to win in the third Test match held at Rajkot on Sunday, taking a 2-1 lead in the five-match series. It is their biggest win in terms of runs ever, surpassing their previous record of a 372-run victory over New Zealand in 2021.

On the other hand, England faced their second-largest defeat in test cricket history. Their biggest loss, which was by 563 runs, came against their arch-rivals, Australia, in 1934. However, this defeat in Rajkot broke their previous second-highest defeat record of 425 runs against the West Indies in 1976.

England, having been set an unlikely target of 557 runs, suffered a major batting collapse and were all out for only 122 runs on day four of the test match. Ravindra Jadeja was the standout performer for India, taking five wickets for 41 runs.

This was England’s poorest batting performance in the series, with none of their batsmen able to score more than 20 runs, except for Mark Wood who scored 33 runs. In contrast, India scored 445 and 430/4 declared in their two innings respectively.

The credit for India’s massive victory goes to Yashasvi Jaiswal, who scored an unbeaten 214 runs in the second innings. The other key contributors with the bat were Rohit Sharma and Ravindra Jadeja, both of whom scored centuries. On his debut, Sarfaraz Khan scored fifties in both innings of the match.

Jaiswal scored an unbeaten 214 runs, in which he hit 12 sixes, to help India achieve a second innings total of 430/4 declared. This gave them a massive lead of 556 runs. It was a perfect opportunity for Jadeja to showcase his skills which shattered England’s claims of being able to chase down such a target with an aggressive approach.

India’s strategy of attacking the wickets proved successful as England’s top order crumbled without any significant contribution. With ample support from Kuldeep Yadav (2/19), Jasprit Bumrah (1/18) and Ravichandran Ashwin (1/19), who returned to the match after attending a medical emergency at home, England found no way to fight back. The fourth Test will be held in Ranchi starting from February 23.

Rohit Sharma criticises impact player rule, BCCI reacts

India captian and Mumbai Indians star cricketer Rohit sharma criticised the impact player rule and sad that he is not a big fan of it. Now, BCCI has responded to Sharma’s comment and said that they will reevaluate the rule.

Indian Premier League (IPL) chairman Arun Dhumal also acknowledged this and said  that every decision has advantages and disadvantages, he also mentioned  BCCI is prepared to review the regulation when the current IPL season concludes.

Ahead to being established in the IPL, the impact player rule was initially put into effect in the Syed Mushtaq Ali T20 tournament in 2022–2023. There have been many expert comments regarding the rule that has been in place for almost two editions of the prestigious T20 tournament, with the many of players being against it.

Since this remark has been made, they will certainly analyze it and talk to everyone concerned and then the board will take calls, Dhumal said.

Every rule that is in place has a number of advantages and disadvantages. Nothing about its execution is set in stone, so after the season ends, they are open to any discussion, he continued.

Earlier, Rohit Sharma also discussed how the impact player rule is reducing the role of all-rounders in the sport.

Sharma said, he is not a big fan of Impact sub rule. All rounders will eventually be held back because cricket is ultimately played by 11 players, not 12. To make the game exciting for everyone around you, you are taking a great deal from it. During an interew the hitman said, if the audience look just at the cricketing side of things, he feels guys like Shivam Dube and Washington Sundar aren’t getting to bowl, which is not a good thing for them as a team.

He continued saying that there are 12 players, it’s interesting, and after the team or the captain sees how the game and the pitch are playing, they might turn on the impact player. You can add another bowler, giving you a total of six or seven bowlers, if the team bats effectively and don’t lose wickets. Many teams are hitting well up front, and he hardly ever sees a No 7 or No 8 coming to bat, so the team doesn’t need that additional batter, Rohit Sharma said.

Rinku Singh breaks Virat Kohli’s gifted bat, asks for another one ahead of KKR vs RCB

Rinku Singh asked Virat Kohli for another bat after breaking the one he received after the last KKR vs RCB match

Kolkata Knight Riders batter Rinku Singh had a hilarious yet strange conversation with Virat Kohli ahead of the KKR vs RCB match at Eden Gardens. The clash, which is scheduled for Sunday, April 21, in Kolkata, is the rivalry’s inverse.

KKR destroyed RCB at their home ground, the M Chinnaswamy Stadium, in the first leg of the match. The players on both teams’ mutual admiration for one another was one of the rivalry’s highlights.

In that particular game, Virat Kohli had gifted one of his bats to Rinku Singh. Rinku, however, broke the bat when playing a spinner in the Indian Premier League, and he then wisely asked Kohli for a replacement bat before the KKR vs. RCB match.

KKR cameramen captured the event, whether it was scripted or not, as Rinku was seen telling Kohli that he had already broken his bat. A little angry Kohli asked for specifics of the whereabouts and questioned if Rinku was asking for a second bat as Rinku was examining two of his other bats. Before Rinku could respond, Kohli warned the KKR batsman that he would run into problems later in the tournament if he gave Rinku 2 bats in two matches.

In the video, Rinku was seen talking to Kohli, and was heard saying in Hindi that Bhaiya apki bat toot gayi, aapki kasam, dobara nahi todunga bat, to which Kohli replied 2 match mein tujhe 2 bat dun?

Meanwhile, the bat served as a token of appreciation for Rinku’s contributions to KKR and the Indian squad, as well as his rise to the position of finisher. In addition, the video showed the players from RCB and KKR conversing with one another following the game, demonstrating excellent sportsmanship and respect.

RCB has come to Kolkata in an attempt to restart their campaign. The team needs to win its final five games to have any chance of making it through the tournament.
