- All eyes on Lord’s Cricket Ground, India and England face to face in the second test
- Three years ago, on the same date, both the teams met on the same ground.
- Indian cricket team will not have to forget the result of Lord’s Test 2018
The Lord’s Cricket Ground in London has not proved to be good in history for the Indian cricket team. India has won only two matches in its Test history at this iconic ground till date. India has played 18 Tests here but Team India has always struggled here. The last time India won a Test match at this ground was seven years ago. There are also players like Ajinkya Rahane in the team who scored a century at this ground in 2014 but now many new players have come and they also need to know about the history. It is not about 2014 here, but of 2018.
When Team India toured England in the year 2018, even then the second match of the Test series was played at this Lord’s ground, and the bigger coincidence is that the date was also the same – August 12. In that match, the England team had not only defeated the Indian team, but had defeated in such a way that this time they would have to take the field, learning from that defeat.
One and a half day’s game was washed away by rain but ..
When the teams of India and England landed on the Lord’s ground to play a Test match on 12 August 2018, the first day of that match was completely washed out, followed by half a day of play and rain. A day and a half had been washed away by rain. It looked like the rain might seem to be going in India’s favour, but despite the impact of one and a half day’s play, England won and registered with a huge margin.
In that Lord’s Test, England won the toss and invited India to bat first. The Indian team led by Virat Kohli landed on the pitch and within 35.2 overs, the Indian team was reduced to 107 runs. In this the biggest contribution was made by James Anderson who took 5 wickets.
England’s befitting reply
To answer, the England team led by Joe Root put up a score of 396 runs for the loss of 7 wickets and then declared the innings. He understood that he understood that he could take a risk against the Indian team looking under pressure. Team India came out to play in the second innings on the fourth day and England bundled them out for just 130 runs within 47 overs. England won that match by an innings and 159 runs.
Who became the hero, because of which India lost
James Anderson, who took 5 wickets in the first innings for England in that match, also took 4 wickets in the second innings. While Stuart Broad also took 4 wickets in the second innings. But the hero of the match was Chris Woakes who showed his batting skills for the first time. When the England team had lost 4 wickets for 89 runs, then after some time, Woakes played an unbeaten 137 while batting at number seven and became the ‘Man of the Match’. While the batsmen were responsible for most of the defeats for India. While among the bowlers, Ishant Sharma, conceding 101 runs, allowed England to score runs fiercely.
