In the fifth Test in Chennai between India and England, England scored 477 runs in their first innings by losing all wickets. They won the toss and elected to bat first. Ravindra Jadeja has taken three wickets for Indian team. 477 runs should be enough for Men in Blues according to the ground nature which was thought by English skipper. But, they almost forgot that they were thinking about India who has got the best batting line up in the cricket playing nation. India declared their first innings by making a ton of runs 759 which is the biggest score for India in Test.

Besides, they lost only seven wickets to score such runs. Even their one of the best batsman Karun Nair was still in the crease who made also a history that day. He scored unbeaten triple century which was his first century, first double century and also first triple century. He is the second Indian batsman to make triple century. However, India scored 726 runs in Mumbai against Sri Lanka in 2009 when Virender Sehwag scored 293 runs. That was the highest score for India before scoring 759 yesterday against England. The record was broken after seven years. Besides, through this triple century of Karun Nair, India has got another triple century after eight long years. In 2004, Sehwag scored his first triple century and in 2008, he scored his second triple century against South Africa at Chennai. After eight years, Chennai witnessed another triple century. Before making his triple century, Rahul also was too close to the double century but he was in bad luck. He got out when his run was 199. For just one run, he failed to touch the double century which could be his first.

Now, today is the last day of the Chennai Test and though English team wants to win this test to keep minimum honor but now, it almost impossible. So, they have to pass the day simply to draw the test. They have already lost Cook who was came to bat in the last session of the forth day. He scored 49 runs. Jennings and Root are on the crease right now where Jennings scored 49 runs too, according to the latest news.
