Earlier India ended Day 2 with a lead of 89 runs against England in the ongoing fourth test in Ahmedabad on Friday. India scored 294 runs for seven wickets down at Stumps on Day 2 all thanks to Rishabh Pant’s brilliant century & Washington’s Sundar unbeaten half century. Rishabh Pant soon got out after scoring his third test hundred & his maiden century on home ground, Sundar was standing rock solid & the duo put a 113 runs stand with 7th wicket to put India on a commanding position. India had poor start on Day 2 as they lost Cheteshwar Pujara & Ajinkya Rahane cheaply whereas Ben Stokes removed Virat Kohli on 0 runs for a duck to bring India in a struggling position. However Rishabh Pant & Rohit Sharma steadied India’s Innings before Sundar joined the wicket-keeper batsman in the middle & turned the game in India’s favor. The game on Day 3 will become more interesting as both the teams will leave no stone unturned to win the game.
