The fifth and final test between India and England in Dharamsala is running very fast. The first inning for India ended at 477 runs and took a massive lead of 259 runs, which proved to be a massive one for the visitors to handle. The Indian bowler increased problems for England, and Ravi Ashwin, who started the onslaught with the ball, went on to register yet another fifer to his name.

However, England tried their best, but their top-order were blown away by some excellent bowling performances from the Indian spinners, especially. Jonny Bairstow, who was trying to be aggressive, looked good for a while, but Kuldeep Yadav got the better of him once again. Bairstow, who was playing his 100th test, got out for 39 off 31.

Watch: Jonny Bairstow and Indian players were involved in nasty sledging.

There was a moment that caught the attention of the fans when Jonny Bairstow was batting. It happened between the English batter and the Indian close-in fielders around his bat. The video of that incident is going viral on social media. It involved Bairstow, Shubam Gill, Dhurv Jurel, and Sarfaraz Khan. Here is the full conversation.

Jonny Bairstow: What did you say to Jimmy about getting tired, and he got you out after that?

Shubman Gill: So what, it was after my 100? How many have you got here?

Sarfaraz Khan: Thode se runs kya bana diya, jyada uchal raha hain. (scored a few runs today and jumping too much).

However, it didn’t go well with the English batter, as he was gone in the very next over. His dismissal saw an exchange of words between him and the Indian players. Meanwhile, it has been a historic test. James Anderson became only the third bowler to reach the magical figure of 700 test wickets. Ashwin, who is playing his 100th test, became only the fourth bowler to pick a fifer in the 100th test. It has been a horrible series for England, apart from the first game. India have thrashed them 4-1.
