2nd Test Highlights:

India’s pacers beat England by 151 runs.

England was dismissed for 120 in 51.5 overs while chasing a total of 272, with skipper Joe Root leading the way with 33. India had 60 overs to bowl England out, and the pacers’ all-around effort made the task possible. With four wickets, including the final one, Mohammad Siraj was the best of the bowlers. India took a 1-0 lead in the five-match series after winning the second Test by 151 runs on Monday.

The 2nd Test Highlights of the match is finished! India well played and won the match by a margin of 151 runs.

Siraj cleans up Anderson and uproots the stumps before going for a celebration run. India wins the second Test by 151 runs to take a 1-0 lead in the series.

WICKET! BOOM BOOM GOES BUMRAH! The Bumrah Magic BOOM BOOM GOES BUMRAH! He set up a field for the short ball, then came around the wicket and delivered a fantastic slower ball to Robinson, who was deep in the crease. India makes excellent use of DRS. With 9.1 overs remaining, England is 8 down.

Field placements have shifted 2nd Test Highlights

KL Rahul has shifted to a close silly-mid-on position, just a few meters away from the batsman. However, India must bowl straight and force the batsmen to play. Bowlers waste deliveries and reduce their chances of winning here by bowling wide outside the off-stump.

2nd Test Highlights only 14 overs left in the match.

The Countdown Has Begun. Running out of time/overs in India. The question will be raised. Should India have declared early (Virat Kohli)?

Bumrah England 108/7, it’s time for one last burst. To win the test match, India will need to take three wickets. There are 16 overs left in the day’s play. Outside the stumps, England players are not touching the ball. Perhaps the Indian seamers should try yorkers and stump-line bowling so that “if you miss, I strike.”

Siraj achieves his goal.

Moeen Ali’s outside edge is found by Mohammed Siraj, and Kohli makes no mistakes at first slip this time. Siraj’s line and length were superb, pitched on the off-stump line and then went away, leaving the batsman with little to do. The next player in is Sam Curran, who is holding a king pair. Will he make it? He doesn’t, he doesn’t!!! Siraj makes it two in a row, and it’s once again the ball sliding away from the left-hander that makes the difference. 90/7 in 38.2 ovs ENG.

Chance! However, there is an anticlimax.

Jadeja is dragged into the attack, and a loud call for caught-behind is made. Ishant Sharma shouts, ‘Awaz aya,’ and Kohli goes for the review! But it’s a no-ball situation! There was a spike on UltraEdge, according to replays. WOW! India misses out on yet another opportunity.

Will India pay a price for the missed catches?

After dropping catches, Haseeb Hameed and Jos Buttler have now batted for over an hour. Could be the difference between a tie and a victory. The clock is ticking. The sun is setting. ENG- 88/5 in 35 ovs ENG- 88/5 in 35 ovs ENG- 88/5 in

With a swing, James Anderson got his five-for. With seam, Mohammed Siraj worked over Dom Sibley and Haseeb Hameed. The second Test is currently tensely poised after India squandered a great opportunity to put the hosts out of contention. England concluded Day Two on 119/3 against the visitors’ 364 all out in their first innings.

As the evening wore on, Mohammed Shami removed a well-set Rory Burns, ending England’s 85-run third-wicket partnership. It was an appropriate conclusion to a day in which fortunes swung back and forth and no team could claim victory.

The beginning was a letdown. KL Rahul was out to an Ollie Robinson half-volley off the second ball of the day after a faultless first day of batting. He drove the hit-me delivery, but he couldn’t keep it down in time for Sibley to catch it at the cover. Despite a full crowd at Lord’s applauding a great inning, the Indian opener appeared guilt-ridden. Rahul’s 129 included 12 fours and a six, as well as a lot of effort ‘inputs from’.
