Shedding some light on the ENG vs IND 2021 second test, both India & England displayed an intense game on day five of the second test as players from both teams engaged in verbal fights & in the end it was team India who emerged victorious in a hard-fought second test.
Jasprit Bumrah & Mohammed Shami starred with both bat & ball & made the most of the opportunity to shine bright at Lord’s as India registered a 151 run steller win over England in the second Test to take a much needed 1-0 lead in the ongoing five-match test series. After a stunning second win in the second test, India’s opening batsman KL Rahul said that if England engages in a verbal fight with India, then they know how to give it back.
Last week, England’s head coach Chris Silverwood has named a 15 member squad for the ENG vs IND 3rd Test 2021. Dawid Malan returned to the Test squad for the first time in three years. He has last made his test appearance in 2018 against India at Edgbaston. Lancashire pacer Sqaib Mahmood has also been included in the squad.
Saqib is yet to make his test debut but he will be aiming to perform well & keep up with selectors’ expectations. Saqib has already been capped by the senior team in the ODIs & T20Is. Saqib Mahmood’s addition to the squad could be a boon for the out form England squad who is already suffering from the absence of Stuart Broad as he has been ruled out of the series due to an injury.
