Why Are England Players Wearing Red Jersey on Day 2?

The second day of the 2nd Test match between England and India has been marked as the Ruth Strauss Foundation Day and this is the reason why the England players are sporting a red jersey. Ahead of the start of play on Day 2, the players from both the teams came out wearing red caps and stood in a heart-shaped formation in order to show their support for the noble cause.

“This year’s #RedforRuth campaign will raise awareness of our new Family Support Service – a vital service that provides much-needed pre-bereavement support for families with dependent children, where a parent is told they don’t have much longer to live, helping families prepare for grief, death and dying,” the foundation confirmed in an official statement.

While talking about the Test match, India got off to a disappointing start on Day 2 losing the key wickets of both their overnight batsmen, KL Rahul and Ajinkya Rahane quite early. Rahul got out in just the first over of the day after playing a poor shot off Ollie Robinson’s bowling. The right-hander still was absolutely phenomenal scoring an excellent knock of 129 runs that included 12 fours and 1 six. On the other hand, Ajinkya Rahane once again failed to contribute much with the bat getting dismissed for a 23-ball 1.

However, the duo of Ravindra Jadeja and Rishabh Pant have resurrected the Indian innings and now the visitors will definitely be targeting to score atleast 400 runs in the first innings.
