Ind vs Eng LIVE Score – India bundled out for 191, Shardul Thakur & Virat Kohli hits 50’s for India
Shardul Thakur scored 2nd ever fastest half-century for India as Virat Kohli’s team were bundled out for just 191. Thakur scored 57 but it was Chris Woakes who hogged all the limelight with a four-wicket haul on his comeback.
Ollie Robinson took three wickets while James Anderson and Craig Overton returned with one wicket each.
Resuming the third and final session at 122/6, India lost the wicket of Rishabh Pant (9) pretty early on as the left-handed batsman went for a big shot off the bowling of Chris Woakes, but he only managed to hand a simple catch to Moeen Ali.
Shardul Thakur then joined hands with Umesh Yadav and the former played a counter-attacking inning and England was left searching for answers. Shardul brought up his half-century off just 31 balls in the 60th over and all of a sudden, India gained an upper hand.
Shardul’s (57) knock finally came to an end in the 61st over as he was sent back to the pavilion by Woakes and the eighth wicket partnership of 63 runs came to an end. In the end, the visitors were bowled out for 191.
Earlier, India lost the wickets of Rohit Sharma, KL Rahul, and Cheteshwar Pujara as England dominated the opening session. At lunch, India’s score read 54/3 with Kohli (18*) and Ravindra Jadeja (2*) unbeaten at the crease. In the first session, 25 overs were bowled and the English bowlers made sure they repaid the faith shown by skipper Joe Root as he won the toss and decided to bowl.
Sent into bat, the Indian openers — Rohit and Rahul — mixed caution with aggression, and the duo saw out the opening spells of James Anderson and Ollie Robinson. However, the introduction of Chris Woakes paid off straight away as he dismissed Rohit (11), ending the 28-run opening stand.
Pujara next joined Rahul in the middle and the duo found the going tough and they did not score a single run for almost five overs, and this eventually brought about a wicket, as Rahul (17) was trapped in front by Ollie Robinson, reducing India to 28/2.
Pujara (4) also failed to leave a mark with the bat as he chased a wide delivery and his wicket was grabbed by James Anderson, reducing India to 39/3 in the 20th over. In the end, Kohli and Jadeja ensured that India went into the lunch break without losing any further wicket.
Resuming the second session at 54/3, Kohli and Jadeja added 15 more runs before Jadeja (10) was sent back to the pavilion by Chris Woakes. Jadeja poked at a delivery bowled outside off and he handed a simple catch to skipper Joe Root at first slip, reducing India to 69/4. Ajinkya Rahane then joined Kohli in the middle and the duo started reviving the innings for India. The Indian skipper brought up his half-century in the 40th over and he was looking set for a big one. However, as soon as he brought the landmark, Kohli (50) was sent back to the pavilion by Ollie Robinson.
Right before the tea break, Craig Overton removed Rahane (14), and India was reduced to 117/6 before tea interval.
