Share

India are in a position where they cannot lose the game going into the final day of the practice game against Leicestershire. They are on the driver’s seat at the end of day 3.

ENG vs IND: Virat Kohli leads the charge with the bat

India lead by 366 runs in the 2nd innings. Virat Kohli top scored with 67 runs. He looked in ominous touch throughout the innings. He has also seemed to have developed a cut shot which he played with ease in the game. He smacked Jasprit Bumrah for a six over cover point off a delivery that was rising towards him.

Ravindra Jadeja batted twice in the Indian innings and made use of the 2nd opportunity as he remained unbeaten at the end of day’s play with 56 to his name. Shreyas Iyer, who got two opportunities to play in the 2nd innings for India was impressive on the 2nd time as he scored a brisk 62 to take India to a solid total

Rohit Sharma opted to not bat in this innings as he decided to give others an opportunity, the likes of Ravindra Jadeja and Shreyas Iyer batted even twice in the innings. Cheteshwar Pujara, who played for Leicestershire in the first dig batted for India in the 2nd innings for India and scored 22 off 53 balls. He was not at his fluent best in this innings, and it would be interesting to see who India prefers for the #3 spot in the test match against England as both Hanuma Vihari and Cheteshwar Pujara have failed to seize their opportunities big time in this game.
