London: India have taken a 1-0 lead in the five-Test series against England. The first match of the series ended in a draw and in the second Test, the Indian team won the match by 151 runs. India kept the hosts under pressure from day one to day five in the match played at the historic Lord’s ground in London. For some time England had the upper hand, but the Indian players again dominated.
In response to India’s 364 runs in the first innings, the English team scored 391 runs. England got a 27-run lead in the first innings. After this, India scored 298 runs in the second innings and set a target of 272 in front of England. Chasing the target, England’s batsmen performed extremely disappointing in the second innings and the entire team was bundled out for just 120 runs in 51.5 overs. Four England players were dismissed for zero and four failed to reach double digits. Come, let us know about the five heroes of this memorable victory of India.
Opener KL Rahul scored a brilliant century in the Lord’s Test. In the first innings, he scored 129 runs in 250 balls with the help of 12 fours and 1 six. He ended 31 years of drought. In fact, after 1990, an Indian opener scored a century at Lord’s, considered the Mecca of cricket. He was adjudged man of the match for his best innings.
Young fast bowler Mohammad Siraj troubled the English batsmen a lot with his sharp bowling. He took a total of 8 wickets in the match. Siraj took this wicket at a time when the team seemed to be lagging behind. He dismissed Dom Sibley, Jonny Bairstow, Haseeb Ahmed and Ollie Robinson for 30 runs in the first innings. On the other hand, Siraj spent 32 runs in the second innings to hunt down Jos Buttler, Moeen Ali, Sam Curran and James Anderson.
Fast bowler Mohammed Shami bowled effectively in the match. He took 2 wickets in the first innings and 1 wicket in the second innings. Apart from bowling, Shami also showed amazing in batting. He scored an unbeaten 56 off 70 balls in the second innings studded with 6 fours and 1 six. Shami shared an unbroken 89-run partnership with Jasprit Bumrah for the ninth wicket and put the team in a strong position.
Jasprit Bumrah could not take any wicket in his first innings. But the fast bowler was in full swing in the second innings. He took three wickets for 33 runs in 15 overs. Bumrah hunted opener Rory Burns, captain Joe Root and Ollie Robinson. Apart from this, he played an innings of 34 not out in 64 balls. Bumrah hit 3 fours.
Veteran batsman Ajinkya Rahane, who has been out of form for several months, scored at a crucial moment in the second innings of the Lord’s Test. He scored 61 runs in 146 balls with the help of 5 fours. Rahane put on a 100-run partnership for the fourth wicket with Cheteshwar Pujara after India lost three wickets for a total of 55. Rahane lost the wicket after scoring just 1 run in the first innings.
