Hanuma-Iyer Flop Show
The pair of Rohit Sharma and Shubman Gill, who were going to open in the Test against England, came out to open the innings in this match as well, but the pair broke up due to the dismissal of Shubman (21) in the 10th side itself. Captain Rohit (25) was also dismissed after six overs. After this Hanuma Vihari 3 runs and Shreyas Iyer was dismissed for 0, which took the team’s score to 55/4 in 21 overs.
Virat also settled cheaply
In the event of a crisis, Virat Kohli spent some time at the crease. He looked to be in good form, but off a ball from Roman Walker, the umpire declared him out lbw. He was unhappy with this decision of the umpire, but he had to return to the pavilion on a personal score of 33. Virat added 57 runs for the sixth wicket with Bharat. The Indian team had lost seven wickets for 148, but Srikar held one end and took the team to a respectable total.
