India Vs England First Test, England It be the first visiting team ahead of the first inning in India in almost four years. Cook and Hameed stretch it to 163. The English players would have been sitting on the bus from the stadium to the hotel. 163 were ahead, 10 of them were all punchy, and I hoped to realize what you wanted. Can they bring out something memorable here? Bleeding memory from an outspoken past may have looked into the car at the bat, but it was calmed down by the wonderful serenity and talent of a 19-year-old child.
Indians can feel the whirlwinds of dark thoughts if English can hit the bat without making a lot of noise. What if the top of the pitch eventually collapses and allows Sunday’s turn and reverse swing? India does not draw lots like any other team. If the mental fog disappears, it will take heart that the pitch is not akhada, in fact, it is not a sand pit. The rough part at one end is outside the stub line, and the other end does not have a comparatively crumbling soil patch. If the Indians do not collapse, we have to pull this thing out, but we all know what pressure can do.
The sunny Rajkot was finally finished Saturday with a stunning cricket game where drama and heartbreak shade the Indians. I was Indian during the day and stayed in the ATM queue and when I got to the top of the queue I heard that the cash was running out. Every time they suffocated an English challenge before they were reinforced with a nerve-hardening 70, R Ashwin slipped or kicked a carpet.
Fixed by the pressure of the scoreboard and further confined by a trained English attack with a definite purpose for them, they were put under Kosi.
The intention of England was seen from the start of the game. I saw Stewart Brood attacking Virat Kohli in a wide area. In general, it may seem like a defensive maneuver, but in the past, English also liked to take Corey to the stump and let her play. It was not like Collie was not wary. At one point he almost even took a stub guard, confirming that he was not too far from a small red object.
The plan was also seen in the way Broad and Woakes targeted Ajinkya Rahane with guards. Like Kohli, Rahane has also faced challenges. Even though there were two men near the bouncing border, they rolled their pulls. The ball came out with a swing, but the Indians were able to take the lead in the crowded situation with the introduction of spin as well as putting up the fortress.
For some reason, Rahane decided it would be VVS Laxman or Rahul Dravid. Standing in a corrugated corner, he decided to whip the ship, which had turned to the left, Zafar Ansari, who was on his way. The hind legs did not have much room for further advancement, there was no room for effective weight transfer, the forelegs pulled sideways and opened to the body and opened the body, but neither side was. The length did not have the wrist of VVS either.
Once caught in a similar position, the taller Laxman would have been connected to the whip across the line. Dravid, trapped in the same tight spot, would not have stood at the corrugated part from the beginning, would have retreated and somehow pushed it to the side. If he was so fixed, Tendulkar would have pulled the right handle off the handle and poked the ball into the heatsink. Rahane could not get any wood on the leather.
Indian fight continued with a partnership between Ashwin and Kohli before the captain became a hit-wicket victim. The power that turns into a self-trap that is fascinated by what you like. Though he was not his bat or hind legs, he turned too much from his forelock to almost face the square leg, and his left leg hit the stump bottom. He must have felt a shock. But it would have been a short agony while sinking. In twelve runs, India lost Rahane and Kohli, and wedged one-sixth of a hole in the 361 hole. It was left to attract them to Ashwin for relative safety. Indians are easier to breathe for the next hour and a half as Ashwin adds 64 games to Wriddhiman Saha.
Before entering Ashwin, let’s move on to Saha’s exciting knock. If you get the idea, it is that Wriddi wants to change to Wriddi da. He is always aggressive and willing to counterattack, even if he is not in full control at all times. He is at an interesting stage in his career. Once advertised as the safest hand in the country, his keeping was slippery, but his batting approach was getting more and more interesting. – It is still too early to use other adjectives at the international level.
Very early, Ashwin walked towards him, after he was squared up by a quick ankle from Adil Rashid and almost got rid of the next ball on the windy raft. As he nodded his head and raised his hand, Ashwin immediately retreated. Soon after, Saha gave Rashid the lead and lifted the bat in the middle with one hand without reaching the pitch of the turning ball. Do dangerous episodes change my mind? No, it was not. He went down the track and did not go up the pitch again, but this time he sliced up and down in turn for six overtime. He was relatively quiet compared to the crew, and at one point Ben Stokes was overshooting diving Bairstow. When it was seen, India affected prison breaks. Saha felt strong after slowing the track to lift Mooen Ali from midway.
Bat holding stocks at this level of Ravindra Jadeja showed a slight decline. He has already fallen in order and did not change his impressions yesterday. Rashid did not take a long time to turn around and bounce, and Jadeja was so trapped in his position that he could only fly to the short legs.
But Ashwin really appreciates India’s reaching a position where they can still have confidence in the draw. As usual, he was confident and almost relaxed. This is an impression usually given by a talented batter as is possible in this situation. As usual, he seemed to have more time in his hand than most homemade tarts, and treated his spin and seams from his own perspective.
His extra time also creates a scene in which the opposition thinks he has his own man. Ben Stokes was holding his head when Ashwin was once a late steer to third man. He also chopped Moeen Ali at a very late hour. And after thinking that Chris Woakes had slipped the ball through defense, Ashwin hit his hit down. The vast majority of people punch, caress, manipulate, and ping.
When the last man Mohammad Shami joined him, he quickly started lofting and cutting. After he got a lead below 50, he eventually fell, holing out on a deep midwicket.
Ashwin might have raised hopes for India’s victory, but trained Alastair Cook and teenager Haseeb Hameed especially silenced them. Hameed was compared to Boycott and Atherton in the past, but he was more inclined than the two players and stood in the lead as England moved into a young, tough stance.
