Hitman and Pujara Masterclass
Cheteshwar Pujara looked very sharp and focused. He was continuously looking to attack the England fast bowlers which is very unnatural of him. Rohit Sharma was finally able to convert a good start into a 100. This was Rohit Sharma’s first test hundred outside India.
Rohit Sharma has been playing test cricket since 2013 and has got big hundreds to his name but this one was really special for the Hitman. It seemed long overdue because Sharma has been playing well since has been promoted up the order.
Rohit Sharma also told the press that he knew it was his last chance to fit in to the test side. Opening the batting and Rohit Sharma, is a love story made in heaven. Rohit Sharma is the top scorer in this innings with 127 runs. He became the third batsman to get a hundred runs in this series after Joe Root and KL Rahul.
Virat and Jaddu with the momentum
India have a good lead of 174 runs. With captain Kohli and Ravindra Jadeja at the crease India will look to build on this lead. According to the experts a lead of around 300-350 would be enough for India to secure a win in this test match. England bowlers would consider themselves a bit unlucky. They constantly asked questions from the Indian batsman but weren’t table to to disturb them. Catch the today’s action live on Sony ten network and Sony liv app from 2:30 p.m. IST.
