The series between India and England has been entertaining to every bits due to the on-field performances, aggressions, and altercations of the players of both the teams. The rain spoiled the first test match of the series, but the hunger of the Indian team to win the match was quite evident in their terrific display in the 2nd Test match. The 3rd Test match will be important for both the teams, as the England team would want an equalizer, while Indian team would look to carry on the momentum and stretch the lead to 2-0.
The English fans have always been a knowledgeable group of audience in test matches and are also known for their different style of hooting/sledging. The England’s Barmy Army is one of the clubs who has been an avid supporter for England in test matches and shares interesting videos of the people in the stands. One such incident happened in the 1st day of the 3rd Test match.
The captain Virat Kohli came at a crucial stage, where the Indian team was struggling at 4/2. The captain thought to build the innings well along with Rohit Sharma, but failed and was dismissed on 7 off 17 balls. The captain expecting an in-swinger from James Anderson,again fell into the trap and played the ball to finally induce an edge that was well taken by Jos Buttler. This was followed by Virat’s long back to the pavilion, and in between this a small section of crowd started singing “Cheerio” which meant goodbye to Virat.
The video was shared by Barmy Army on Twitter,
The Indian batsmen struggled to get going on the first day of the 3rd Test Match. With the precision of England pacers, the Indian team could not handle the pressure and were dismissed for a low score of 78.The opener Rohit Sharma was the top run-scorer for the team with 19 runs. James Anderson and Craig Overton picked 3 wickets each, while Sam Curran and Ollie Robinson scalped 2 wickets each.
It will be upon the bowlers to contain as well as pick wickets of the England batsmen and make a comeback in the 3rd Test match.
