New Delhi: The second Test match of the series is being played between India and England (IND vs ENG) at the historic ground of Lord’s. After the first test match was inconclusive, in the second test, the eyes of Team India were on winning this match. Team India scored 364 runs in the first innings with the help of Rohit Sharma and KL Rahul. In such a situation, it seemed that this test would be easy for India. But this did not happen. On the third day of the match, the Indian bowlers could not do much and England scored 391 runs in the first innings. After this Virat Kohli has started questioning a decision.
Virat’s stubbornness cost India dearly
Actually Ravichandran Ashwin was not included in Team India’s playing XI in the first Test. In such a situation, it was expected that this time Kohli would make no mistake and give senior player Ashwin a place in the team. But this did not happen. On the third day of the second Test, the Indian bowlers were in trouble and could not get England captain Joe Root out till the end and the whole match turned upside down. England scored 391 runs in the first innings, only captain Root scored 180 runs.
Why did the bowlers of Team India look so helpless in front of them. In such a situation, the question arises that Ashwin is a senior player of India as well as Ashwin is the best spin bowler of the present time. Ashwin has 413 wickets in Test cricket.
Ashwin had a big hand in getting two consecutive series wins against Australia. Ashwin could have been very important in this match against England. He is very experienced, in such a situation his being in the team would have proved beneficial for India and do not know that the England team could not score so much. In such a situation, it would not be wrong to say that Virat’s insistence on feeding 4 fast bowlers can overwhelm him.
third day of second test
The failure of Virat Kohli’s batsmen was clearly visible on the second day of the Lord’s Test between India and England. Keep pushing the team’s score. However, Inshat Sharma did wonders for the troubled team India and took 2 consecutive wickets. However, the Indian bowlers could not stop England captain Joe Root and he single-handedly played an unbeaten 180 and the English team scored 391 runs in the first innings.
