Dhruv Jurel showed brilliant athleticism to run out Ben Duckett as India drew first blood in the English top-order collapse.

A brilliant piece of wicket-keeping from debutant Druv Jurel, albeit with an assist from Mohammed Siraj, sent back Ben Duckett to the dressing room with a stunning run-out.

The England opener had already made the war cry after the third day when he said “let them (India) have as many as they want (runs) and we’ll go and get them”, but he was the first to perish with a horrible run out.

Duckett, having flicked one on the leg side kept running even though his partner Zak Crawley was scantly interested. Eventually, Duckett ran himself out for four.

He was involved in a horrible mix-up as Ben Duckett went in pursuit of a single after pushing the ball to mid-wicket. Crawley sent Duckett back, but it was too late as Mohammed Siraj fired in a throw and wicketkeeper Dhurv Jurel rushed towards the stumps and collected the ball in motion to break the stumps quickly.

At the stroke of tea, pacer Jasprit Bumrah moved one back sharply into Crawley (11) to pin him in front of the wickets. The English opener opted for DRS but the decision stayed with the umpire’s call.

England 18/2 at tea on day four of the third Test.

His wicket made it a dominating session for India, while it turned out to be a catastrophic one for England. With Ravichandran Ashwin returning after tending to a family medical emergency, things could go from bad to worse for a hapless England at Rajkot.

Earlier, Jaiswal, who had to retire hurt on 104 on day three due to back cramps, remained unbeaten on a career-best score of 214 off 236 balls. He hit 14 fours and 12 sixes and levelled with Wasim Akram for the world record for most sixes in a Test innings. Jaiswal is also the first Test player to hit 20 sixes in a series.

Jaiswal’s phenomenal double century and Sarfaraz Khan’s unbeaten 68 propelled India to declare their second innings at 430/4 in 98 overs, leaving England needing 557 to win.
