Kohli hugs and congratulates
After Rahul’s century, captain Virat Kohli, standing at the other end, hugged and congratulated him. Rahul started his innings very slowly and kept Rohit Sharma on more strike. While batting brilliantly, Rohit played a brilliant innings of 83 runs in 145 balls. However, the hitman missed his century.
bad condition of england
Among the bowlers of England, James Anderson (two wickets for 52 runs) was seen to be effective. He lacked cooperation from the other end. His teammate Stuart Broad has been ruled out of the series due to injury. England took the new ball soon after the completion of 80 overs, taking advantage of which Ollie Robinson (1 for 47) took the wicket of Kohli. Captain Joe Root looked desperate for a wicket and he also lost two ‘reviews’ in the meantime.
