IND vs ENG 3rd Test: Ben Duckett’s century puts England in commanding position against India

In response to India’s total of 445, England’s Ben Duckett showcased stellar batting prowess, leading his team to a strong position on the second day of the test match.

Duckett’s exceptional century, his third in Test cricket, came off just 88 balls, making it the quickest by an England batter against India. Partnering with Zak Crawley, Duckett formed a crucial partnership, dominating India’s bowling attack, particularly the spinners.


Despite a brief setback with Crawley’s dismissal, Duckett remained relentless, steering England to 207/2 by stumps. India, on the other hand, faced challenges as England’s bowlers, led by James Anderson and Mark Wood, kept the pressure on, resulting in crucial breakthroughs.

However, India managed to post a competitive total, with contributions from Ravindra Jadeja and debutant Dhruv Jurel. Yet, England’s strong batting display puts them in a commanding position as the test match progresses.
