England’s Jonny Bairstow is battling to maintain his spot in the team as well as to reach a personal goal in the next Test match against India in Dharamsala. Underwhelming throughout the series, Bairstow will play his 100th Test match for England this Friday at the stunning Himachal Pradesh Cricket Association Stadium.

For Indian spinner Ravichandran Ashwin, who will be playing in his 100th Test match, this match holds extra significance. There have only been three previous instances in cricket history of two players celebrating their 100th Test in the same match. The last occasion was in 2000 when Michael Atherton and Alec Stewart of England achieved their combined century of Tests.

Before kickoff, Bairstow complimented the stadium’s pitch, mentioning that it had been used for a Ranji Trophy match. He was proud to have completed his 100th test, and he was impressed with the performance of the ground crew, particularly in light of the recent weather difficulties. Bairstow described the venue in Dharamsala as one of the most picturesque places on earth.

Bairstow’s path has not been easy, particularly following a broken leg sustained in a golfing accident. Since the event, which occurred in 2012 when he made his debut, he has battled to regain his form.

He has failed to make a century in his previous ten Test matches and has only hit a top score of 38 against India in the current series. Reflecting on the aspiration of many young cricket players to play 100 Tests, Bairstow maintains his optimism.
