Jonny Bairstow notched up a back-to-back century as England inched closer to a historic win on Day 5 of the ongoing fifth Test against India, at Edgbaston on Tuesday.

Bairstow had scored 106 to power England to a first-innings score of 284.

This was Bairstow's fourth ton in the last three Tests. He scored a match-winning 136 in the second Test against New Zealand and followed it with 162 in the third Test against Kiwis in the recently concluded Test series, which England won 3-0.

The right-handed batsman stitched a 200-run partnership with former captain Joe Root.

Twitterati hailed the in-form batsman.
