New Delhi: Team India’s troubles have increased in the second Test between Team India and England being played at the historic ground of Lord’s. On the first day of the match, the Indian team performed brilliantly but on the second day where no batsmen could play, the bowlers spoiled the game on the third day and England scored 391 runs in the first innings.
On the fourth day of the game, the Indian team started the second innings with great enthusiasm and went to the crease with Rohit-KL Rahul. After the early dismissal of KL, the fans hoped that Hitman would do something amazing, but due to his stubbornness, he caused the loss of the team.
Rohit did the split
At the beginning of Team India’s second innings, KL Rahul got out 5, after a while Rohit Sharma and Cheteshwar Pujara were on the crease. Rohit was batting well and was taking the score forward. But Team India’s innings was shattered when Rohit Sharma, who was in excellent form, got out. He scored 21 runs in 36 balls with the help of 1 six and 2 fours. It is sad for the fans that Rohit’s wicket was gifted to England.
A Trap by Mark Wood & England in which Rohit Sharma fall.
Short ball, he pulls his and it was a six, now 3 fielders at the boundary line, again a short ball and he hits the edges.
Same story of getting out after getting set continues..
Actually, Rohit was scoring runs after KL’s dismissal. He also hit a six but shortly after that he hit a pull shot, to the dismay that he did not have to take this risk. Rohit was dismissed as part of captain Joe Root’s plan because after the hitman hit a six, he had laid the field in such a way that Rohit could get trapped.
Fans furious at Rohit
After hitting a six in Test cricket, he might have left this ball or could have defended it, but he always did and got out in the process of hitting a big shot. After this shot of Rohit Sharma, the fans are raging on him.
This will go down as an irresponsible shot

That’s what you call as ‘throwing away your wicket’ #RohitSharma almost every single time. He needs to value his own wicket first.
