Despite the burden of runs, the Indian spinner thinks they are in a good place
Even with the burden of such a big run, one of the spinners of the Indian team feels that we are still in a good position. After taking 3 wickets on the first day, the Indian bowlers were able to take only 5 wickets against England on the second day.
Even then, Indian spinner Shahbaz Nadeem thinks the team is in a good place. According to Nadeem, Ishant Sharma's two wickets in a row at the end of the day brought India to the battlefield.
Although Nadeem himself took two wickets yesterday, Ishant's two wickets were more important in his words. Ishant dismisses Joss Butler and Zafra Archer. So this kind of performance boosts the team's confidence, he said.
Nadeem added that if he had not taken those two wickets, the batsmen would have been at the crease instead of the tailenders. On that day, Nadeem also took two important wickets despite being questioned about his inclusion in the Indian team.
Nadeem lbw Ben Stokes and Joe Root, otherwise the run would have been more mountainous. Commenting on his own bowling, Nadeem said, "Our main goal is to put these kinds of wickets in good places."
If we always think of taking wickets then we have to give runs, so everyone in our team had a plan to try to keep the ball in a good place and keep waiting for the opponent's batsmen to make mistakes.
