London: The second test match between India and England at Lord’s is standing at an interesting juncture. It is difficult to speculate about whether the result will be out in this match or not. Let us inform that in response to India’s first innings of 364 runs, England’s first innings was all out for 391 runs. Then on the fourth day on Sunday, the Indian team started its second innings, which was not good. Wood got the first innings centurion KL Rahul (5) at the hands of Butler.
After this, Rohit Sharma (21) and captain Virat Kohli (20) got the start, but both the batsmen failed to convert it into big innings. The Indian team had lost the top three wickets for 55 runs and two such batsmen were present at the crease, whose place is in trouble. Both these batsmen have been battling poor form for quite some time now. You know their names very well – Cheteshwar Pujara and Ajinkya Rahane.
Ajinkya Rahane returns to form at the right time
Ajinkya Rahane and Cheteshwar Pujara (45) showed why they are class batsmen. Both proved their worth by performing under pressure. Pujara and Rahane shared a 100-run partnership for the fourth wicket. Pujara fought the English bowlers for 206 balls, but he missed the half-century. Root caught Pujara off Wood’s ball. The right-handed batsman scored 45 runs in 206 balls with the help of four fours.
At the same time, Ajinkya Rahane scored his 24th half-century of his Test career with the help of five fours in 146 balls. Rahane scored his seventh half-century against England. Rahane had performed well in the past at Lord’s and once again he was successful at this ground. The Mumbai batsman must be sorry that he did not manage to score a century.
Rahane scored his last Test century in Melbourne on the tour of Australia last year. Since then he was struggling with form. The return of the vice-captain is a good sign for the Indian team. This will give him a chance to end his 14-year Test series win drought in England. Let us inform that India have lost 6 wickets for 181 runs in 82 overs till the stumps on the fourth day. Rishabh Pant 14 * and Ishant Sharma 4 * are frozen at the crease. India’s lead is 154 runs.
