On Day 3 of the first test against England, India has gained a momentum and is moving at a good pace. On the first day, England recorded 183 runs which India easily surpassed by putting up a score of 278 runs on the board. England’s Ollie Robinson gave an outstanding performance by knocking 5 wickets for 85 runs, while James Anderson took 4 and is now the third highest wicket taker in test cricket history.
Day 3 resumed on India’s 125-4 and just after 11 balls, drizzles from the sky stopped the match. After the match restarted, Indian keeper Rishabh Pant hit some serious knocks from his bat scoring 25 runs of 20 balls. Rahul got a second chance after Joe Root dropped his catch. James Anderson was able to send him off at 84 but the damage was already done. Jadeja’s 50+ runs gave India a push along with the amazing lower order batting by Jasprit Bumrah and Mohammed Shami. This test series is actually a start to the new World Test Championship cycle which will be as exciting as the one we witnessed in this year.
