The test match series between England and India has always been interesting due to both the teams having quality players and a huge amount of interest is also taken by the people following test cricket. The Indian team lately have been quite impressive in the test cricket, and reached the WTC Finals. The present India Tour of England starts a new World Test Championship Cycle, and with India winning the 2nd Test match, they are at the top of the table. This will possibly be the last test bilateral test series due to the scheduled IPL and T20 World Cup in October.
The Indian pacer Mohammed Siraj is naturally an aggressive and on your face player. His natural instinct worked wonders for the team in the 2nd Test, where he picked up 4 wickets each in both innings and helped the team to win the match.
In the 3rd Test, where the Indian team were dismissed for a low total of 78, the bowlers also could not induce any wickets and it turned out to be a disappointing day for the visitors. The English fans enjoyed to their fullest by giving a musical send-off to Virat Kohli and were involved in a verbal spat with Mohammed Siraj.
Here is the video of Siraj giving an answer to English fan, signifying that they are still 1-0 up!
Here are the reactions on Twitter:
It was a brilliant display of skills by all the England pace bowlers. James Anderson, Craig Overton, Ollie Robinson and Sam Curran to dismiss the Indian batting unit to 78.
To complement the bowlers, the openers Haseeb Hameed and Rory Burns have now stitched an opening stand of 120 runs and until the completion of the day, England have now taken a lead of 42 runs in the 1st innings with 10 wickets remaining.
