The second Test of the ongoing five-match series attracted a lot of fans on the OTT platform which has attracted a massive number of viewers. On the fourth and decisive day of the game, both results such as India winning or England winning were possible. Draw was out of the question for either team as there was no rain predicted.

Meanwhile, at the start of Day four, the Three Lions were 67/1, needing 332 more runs to win. In the first session, the visitors scored 129 runs but lost five wickets. This meant that the fate of the European side rested on the likes of skipper Ben Stokes and Ben Foakes. In the second session, the former got run out and the team's hopes were gone.

The likes of Foakes and Tom Hartley applied themselves and ensured that even if they lost, the margin was smaller. During the second and last session of the day, the team lost their last wicket on 292, losing the game by 106 runs. Meanwhile, during the second session, the OTT platform that broadcasted the Test match saw a total of 40 crore viewers watching the game.

India level the five-match series by 1-1

In the first Test in the last week of January in Hyderabad, the Men In Blue lost the game by 28 runs, chasing 231 runs in the second innings. At one point, the team looked like winning the game by a big margin when they led by 190 runs. Meanwhile, with the 106-run win in the second Test, the Asian side has managed to level the series by 1-1.
