Washington Sundar once again showcased his ability to bat well under pressure in Test matches. The talented all-rounder came out to bat in a tense situation in the fourth Test match against England. Washington Sundar looked the part and played a chanceless knock as India took a massive first-innings lead which proved to be match-winning.
However, Sundar missed a well deserved century as he remained unbeaten on 96. In a matter of just a few deliveries, India lost their last 3 wickets and Sundar was stranded at the non-striker’s end. After missing out on his maiden Test century, Sundar stated that he is not disappointed to miss out on his century.
I am not disappointed to miss the hundred – Washington Sundar
The 21-year-old is confident that the century will come at the right time but so far he is happy to contribute to team India. In just 6 innings in his Test career so far Washington Sundar has already registered 3 half-centuries and averages over 60. Sundar is happy to be part of the series-winning squad in his first Test series at home.
“To win my first series at home is amazing and feels great. I am not at all disappointed to miss the hundred. The 100 will come when it’s the right time for me. I am happy to contribute to the team”, said Sundar after the completion of the match.
“To be honest, the pitch was very good to bat on. Credit to (James) Anderson, (Ben) Stokes for getting assistance on this surface, they bowled really well. The wicket is still good to bat on. If you apply yourself you can score”, Sundar added.
Meanwhile, team India defeated England by an innings and 25 runs in the final Test match at Ahmedabad. Virat Kohli and his men qualified for the all-important ICC World Test Championship final at will now meet New Zealand in June.
