Latest Cricket News: All the crazy cricket fans roared in joy as India registers a thumping win over England in the second test held at Lord’s on Monday. Earlier the game was completely in favor of England but the Indian team by displaying an outstanding show with both bat & ball defeated England by 152 runs to script a historic win at Lord’s.
Bumrah-Shami’s unbeaten 82 run-stand along with Mohammed Siraj’s figures of 4-32 did the honors for India. Fans were overwhelmed with India’s stunning win. They flooded Twitter with congratulatory posts for team India & also hailed the team for putting hosts under immense pressure.
Let’s have a look at fans reactions on Twitter:
Coming back to the second test, at the beginning of Day 5, a lot was speculated on how Rishabh Pant bats with the tail as only Indian pacers were left. However, Pant departed early & it seemed like India’s innings would end easily.
Ishant Sharma also followed & it looked like India could score only 20-30 runs with Pacers Mohammed Shami & Jasprit Bumrah at the crease. But what happened was exceptional as both Shami & Bumrah displayed an extraordinary show with the bat to put up an unbeaten 89 runs for the ninth wicket. Mohammed Shami scored his second half-century in test cricket & the duo’s 89 run stand helped India to set a target of 271 for England to chase in 60 overs.
The hosts could form small partnerships but India kept taking wickets at regular intervals. Joe Root’s wicket was huge for India & it looked like England would collapse & hand over an easy win to India. However, there was some resistance first from Moeen Ali and then by Jos Buttler. It looked like Buttler would end the game in a draw, but Siraj did the needful by dismissing Buttler & then scalped the last wicket in the same over to seal a thrilling victory for India. With this zealous win, India took a 1-0 lead in the five-match test series. The next Test is to be played at Leeds on August 25th.
