New Delhi: Team India suffered a crushing defeat by an innings and 76 runs in the third Test against England at Headingley. One of the major reasons for Team India’s defeat in this match was his batting. But even before the start of this match, the captain of the Indian team, Virat Kohli, made a big mistake, which cost India the loss.
India lost because of this decision
In the third test match, Team India captain Virat Kohli won the toss and decided to bat first, which proved to be the most fatal for him. In the morning session on the first day, the pitch helped the England fast bowlers a lot and they blew the batsmen of Team India like a pack of cards. Kohli ignored the record of the last 4 years of the field. During this three Tests were held and the team batting first lost all the matches. Out of this, England won two matches, while in one match he had to face defeat at the hands of West Indies. During this, 258, 174 and 179 runs were scored in the first innings of all three matches. That is, twice the teams could not touch the 200-run mark. Now Team India itself could not even reach 100 runs.
won the toss after a long time
The Indian captain anyway won the toss on England soil after a long time. This was the first time on the tour of England when the coin was in favor of the Indian captain after tossing. But somehow the luck of Virat Kohli, who won the toss, is probably bad. Deciding to bat on a damp pitch was a very poor decision, due to which India lost. Due to the poor performance of the batsmen, the Indian team had to lose this match.
The Indian team has lost the third test match of the series against England. In the second innings, India scored only 278 runs for the loss of 10 wickets. England won this match by an innings and 76 runs. Being all out on a small score in the first innings of this match, the Indian team was overwhelmed throughout the match.
bowlers also disappointed
After the batsmen, India’s bowlers also disappointed a lot. England put 432 runs on the board in the first innings after bowling India out for just 78 runs in the first innings. None of India’s bowlers failed to trouble the England batsmen and England captain Joe Root scored his third consecutive century in this series.
