ENG vs IND 1st Test Match came to an end a few days ago but it has us still talking about it. We witnessed some of the best performances from the likes of Bumrah and Root and we are excited to see what the next match has in store for us.
Top 5 Players to Look Out For in ENG vs IND 2nd Test Match.
5. Sam Curran
Curran showed some really good potential to do well in the match. He scored 27* in their first innings and 32 in their next. His bowling was fine as well. He bowled 15 overs and conceded just 57 runs. Unfortunately, he could not bowl in the final inning due to rain but I am sure he would’ve performed well. He has great potential to do some great work and you should keep an eye out for him.
4. Ravindra Jadeja
Jadeja is a fine specimen of a middle-order batsman and he proved it in their first match. He scored a staggering 56 in 86 balls and really carried India’s batting at the end of their first inning. He wasn’t given much chance with the bowl however as he bowled just 16 overs in total. But his impressive batting form gets him a spot on this list.
3. Ollie Robinson
This was a tough one to rank. Robinson really outperformed his peers in the first bowling innings for England. He took 5 wickets including some really crucial ones. He dismissed Rohit Sharma and cleaned the house in India’s middle and backorder. Unfortunately, he could not perform in their second innings due to rain but I am sure he would have delivered another breathtaking performance.
2. Jasprit Bumrah
Bumrah is by far the best Indian bowler in the squad currently. His phenomenal performance in both the innings impressed everyone watching and his 9/110 was well deserved. He will definitely be a star player in Lord’s as well and we just can’t wait to see him play again.
ENG vs IND: Honorable Mentions
- KL Rahul: Rahul left his mark in India’s first innings. He scored an amazing 84 which saw India’s batting through the innings.

- James Anderson: Anderson is another top bowler in the English team. He took a total of 4 wickets including the crucial wickets of KL Rahul, Pujara, and Virat Kohli.
1. Joe Root
Joe Root showed everyone watching why he is the captain of the English squad. He outperformed his peers by a wide margin in both their innings and honestly, carried the English batting order through the match. His amazing 109 in their second innings was really great and he deserves the POTM award. He will definitely be someone to look out for in Lord’s.
