- india vs england second test
- England won the toss and elected to bowl
- The first test of the series was drawn
London: Indian openers KL Rahul and Rohit Sharma dominated the opening day of the second Test against England. Both batted at the historic Lord’s ground on Thursday and thrashed the English bowlers. While Rahul scored the sixth century of his Test career, Rohit missed the century. Rohit played an innings of 83 runs in 145 balls. At the end of the day’s play, India scored 276 runs for the loss of 3 wickets in 90 overs. At stumps, Rahul was unbeaten on 127 off 240 balls with 12 fours and 1 six, while Ajinkya Rahane remained on a personal score of 1 run. For England, James Anderson took two and Ollie Robinson took one wicket.
Indian team got off to a great start
Electing to bat after losing the toss, the Indian team got off to a great start. Openers Rohit Sharma and KL Rahul put on a strong partnership of 126 runs for the first wicket. This partnership broke after Rohit was dismissed in the 44th over. Rohit, popularly known as Hitman, was made his victim by veteran fast bowler James Anderson. Rohit could not cover the off-stump on a good length ball and got bowled. It looked like he would score a century but missed it. He scored 83 runs in 145 balls. He hit 11 fours and 1 six in his innings.
Then Cheteshwar Pujara was dismissed cheaply
India got the second blow in the form of Cheteshwar Pujara. Pujara once returned cheaply to the pavilion. He scored just 9 runs from 23 balls. He was dismissed by Anderson in the 50th over. Pujara played a wrong shot on a good length ball and was caught by Jonny Bairstow at third slip. He shared a 24-run partnership with KL Rahul for the second wicket. Pujara’s wicket fell on the total score of 150.
Virat Kohli played an innings of 42 runs
India’s third wicket fell in the form of captain Virat Kohli. After Pujara’s dismissal, Kohli batted for the bat, but could not score a half-century. He lost the wicket after scoring 42 runs. He faced 103 balls and hit 3 fours. Kohli was shown the way out in the 85th over by Ollie Robinson. The Indian captain could not detect the ball after falling on the pitch and was caught by Joe Root at first slip. He shared a 117-run partnership with Rahul for the third wicket. Kohli returned to the pavilion on a total score of 267.
Three in England and one change in Team India
England has made three changes in their playing XI. The hosts have named Haseeb Ahmed and Moeen Ali in place of Jack Crowley and Daniel Lawrence. At the same time, England have included Mark Wood in place of Stuart Broad. Let us inform that Broad has been ruled out of the Test series against India due to a calf injury. At the same time, India has made only one change. The visiting team has kept veteran fast bowler Ishant Sharma in the playing XI in place of injured Shardul. Ishant could not play the first Test due to being unfit.
The Indian bowlers bowled brilliantly in the first Test and showed their mettle on the Trent Bridge pitch. India bundled out England for 183 in the first innings and 303 in the second innings. Apart from Joe Root, no one could play a big innings for England. Root scored a half-century in the first innings and a century in the second. At the same time, India scored 278 runs in the first innings and took a lead of 95 runs. England set a target of 209 runs for India to win. Chasing the target, India had scored 52 runs for the loss of one wicket on the fourth day and needed 157 runs on the fifth day. But the rain came to a halt and the match could not result in any result.
England’s upper hand against India
England has an upper hand against India in Tests. The two teams have clashed 127 times in Tests, with England winning 48 matches. Indian team got success in 26 matches. Apart from this, 50 Tests in both the teams ended in a draw. At the same time, India’s record has been very poor when it comes to Tests played on England’s soil. India has played a total of 63 Tests in England and have won only 7 matches. England, on the other hand, tasted victory in 34 matches. 22 Tests were drawn.
Shardul Thakur and Stuart Broad dropped
India and England have suffered a setback ahead of the Lord’s Test. India all-rounder Shardul Thakur has been ruled out of the second Test due to a hamstring strain. Thakur’s troubles increased during the exercise. It seems that Thakur got injured during the training session at Lord’s on Monday. At the same time, England fast bowler Stuart Broad has suffered a right calf injury due to which he has been ruled out of the Test series against India. He underwent an MRI scan in London on Wednesday in which the tear has come to the fore.
