Karun Nair Triple Century Sinks England, Well Almost

#IndvEng #TestSeries 2016
5th Test Match - #Chennai

Starting the day at 71*, little did #KarunNair could have imagined what a day this was going to be for him! By the time India's innings ended, 759 for 7 declared, he was walking back 303* (a massive achievement - only 2nd Indian behind Sehwag to do it) to setup a daunting task for the Englishmen to survive Day 5 of this test match.   

With able support from #Vijay, #Ashwin and #Jadeja, he piled up misery for England bowlers throughout the day. Session 1 was always going to be crucial with India still trailing by 86 runs, so caution was the keyword. The second session was in push mode to step up the scoring to build lead while the third one was turbocharge mode to set up a winning lead. He did all three with gumption and flair.

Well played Karun and there will be no surprises when the Man Of The Match will be selected tomorrow.

Brief Scores At the end of Day 4
England: 1st Innings - 477, 2nd Innings - 12/0
India: 1st Innings - 759 for 7 decl
