Indian spinners shined on the fifth day of the second test match against England at Vishakhapatnam. When England batsmen Ben Duckett and Joe Root came out to bat on Sunday morning, India still required eight wickets to attain the victory. But the trio of Jayant Yadav, Ravichandran Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja were up to the task and ensured India’s win just after the lunch break.

The debutant Jayant Yadav who took three wickets on the way to India’s victory was applauded by the team captain Virat Kohli during the post match ceremony. The off spinner bowled an off cutter that clean bowled the in-form middle order batsmen Ben Stokes which dented England’s resistance on the fifth day. Yadav also displayed some fine batting talent earlier in the game as well, missing out on a half century in the first innings and now has almost cemented his position in the squad for the upcoming games in the series.

Ashwin missed out on another 10-wicket haul in the match but took two wickets on the fifth day. The fast bowler Mohammed Shami also managed to pull two wickets for India on a day when the pitch was turning and was assisting spin bowling. Indian captain Virat Kohli, who displayed batting prowess with scores of 167 and 81, on a surface which was difficult for batsmen, was declared the Man of the Match. With the win over England, India has now remained unbeaten in 15 consecutive test matches.
