in Sports Talk Social3 months ago

hello and welcome to all the readers.

England cricket team is currently in India playing 4 match test series .

England won the first test match very convincingly. They played very well.
But, things have turned in the second match. India has dominated the game right from day 1

The scores at the end of day 3:
India scored 329 runs in first innings
In reply, England scored 134 runs only

In second innings india scored 286 runs and set a target of 482 runs for england to win the match
At the end of day 3, England were 58/3

The highlight of day 3 - was Ashwin scored a century.

Today was day 4 of the england vs India Test match.

It did not last long, England were bowled for 164 runs

Axar Patel was the star bowler who took 5 wickets
Ashwin took 3 wickets and kuldeep took 2 wickets

All the wickets were taken by the spinners

Man of the match - Ashwin

Analysis:

It was a difficult pitch to bat, but indian batsman played very well.

India showed good character and came back strong after losing the first test match
Some may say that england did not play their main bowlers and their team lacked experience. They have rotation policy to blame.

Now that the series is poised at 1:1. The next match will be interesting.
Its a day and night match at Ahmedabad. They will be using a pink ball.

The question now is:

Will England come back strong?
Can india continue the form?
