The second Test between India and England got off to a perfect start. Joe Root offered India to bat first after winning the toss. Surprisingly, he gave us control on day 1. The Indian openers didn’t disappoint, scoring 200+ runs together.
Rohit Sharma and KL Rahul were impressive, and the fans enjoyed the match. Though Virat Kohli and Cheteshwar Pujara didn’t live up to expectations, they did contribute some runs. Rahul went unbeaten and added 100 runs to his partnership with him.
A Tweet by Riyan Parag that caught the attention of many fans
Riyan Parag tweeted about Virat Kohli’s look in Test cricket. This did not go over well with the fans. For this reason, they began targeting the player on Twitter. King Kohli fans were unhappy with Riyan’s remarks about the Indian skipper.
Most of them didn’t understand what he was saying. It might be due to the IPL rivalry. Well! No matter how much they love or hate a player, they still want to talk about him.
Below is the Tweet that the Rajasthan Royals’ star sent out-
Fans commented on the post on Twitter, which went berserk. Some of the comments were positive, while others were negative.
Team India’s Strong Hold On The Match?
Team India leads England after the first day of the second Test. On 276/3, they had a few sessions, one of which was shared. Kohli and co. had a near-perfect day for Test cricket. After quite some time, they dominated an overseas match.
Team India has been aggressive and good since the first Test. When they were ahead, a rain delay cost them the game.
As a consequence, the players are now looking to capitalize on their good start this time around. The team will strive to win this five-match series.
England will want to make an impact on the second day at Lords, as the visitors are in control. It remains to be seen whether Joe Root and company can accomplish that. Let’s wait and see what happens next!
