But Chris Woakes trapped Jadeja LBW and then Rahane was dismissed for a duck by him as well. This caused a serious shift in the momentum of the test match. With the pressure mounting, Virat Kohli was dismissed by knicking Moeen Ali’s ball to the slip fielder, Craig Overton.
The wicket-keeper Rishabh Pant and Shardul Thakur are currently at the crease for Team India. Thakur, who was the top scorer for the Indian team in the first innings with 57 runs has started cautiously and will look to replicate his performance of the first innings.
