England did not give the first over of the day to two of their leading fast bowlers Stuart Broad and James Anderson. England captain Ben Stokes brought the first over of the second day. The ball was handed to Matthew Potts from the other end. There was so much fear of Mohammed Shami in the England team that he had kept two fielders in the deep. After scoring 3 runs in the over on the first day of the day, the Indian batsmen scored 30 runs in the over the next day.
What was your thought?
In front of the lower order batsmen, any team brings its main bowler, but why did England do it. When the day’s play started, there were 7 overs left to get the new ball. For this reason, the England team was assuming that the Indian batsmen would not be out on the old ball. For this reason, he did not even bowl to his best bowlers and India took full advantage of it.
Wicket to Broad in the very first over
When Jadeja and Shami made quick runs, England had to change their planning. Ben Stokes gives the 79th over to Stuart Broad. He sent Mohammed Shami to the pavilion on the fourth ball. By then Shami had scored 16 runs with the help of three fours. India’s score had reached 371 runs.
