Ind v Eng highlights today – third test day two from Trent Bridge, Nottingham (England) Sunday 19th August 2018. India scored 307 runs with six wickets down in first day’s play. RR Pant † not out at 22 off 32, S Dhawan scored 35 runs and out, KL Rahul 23, CA Pujara 14, HH Pandya 18. The captain of the team V Kohli faced 152 deliveries and scored 97 runs then his wicket dismissed like this (75.6 Adil Rashid has got one to turn after sliding many on straight. What an anti-climax! He doesn’t even know how to celebrate, but this is a good ball. It’s tossed up, it’s loopy, it’s got revs. He hasn’t bowled too many of these today. This one lands outside off. Kohli looks to crash it through the line to sweeper cover’s right. But he isn’t to the pitch and with the turn away, he isn’t in control. Stokes takes easily to his left at slip. India’s captain is gone after another superb knock under tough circumstances 279/5).
AM Rahane 81 runs contribution gave India a hope of victory when his wicket down then it was (66.6 Cook sticks his left hand out and plucks a one-hander at first slip. Great reflexes. England, finally, finds a way past this pair. This was pitched up and seams away a wee bit outside off, Rahane’s front foot is nowhere close to the pitch. He reaches out for the ball with his hands, drives loosely, and nicks it off. He kept going after such balls in the previous over and got away. This time he falls 241/4). CR Woakes took three wickets yesterday, JM Anderson, SCJ Broad, and AU Rashid took one wicket each of them.
England win the toss and choose to bowl.
