Cheteshwar Pujara comeback in the form of challenging times that put India in a comfortable zone.
The Indian cricket team will feel comfortable at the end of the third test day at Headingley. Courtesy, of course, of the Indian hitters.
The Indian batting brigade was able to recover from the difficult situation. At the end of the third day, the Indian cricket team lost a couple of wickets and scored 215 runs.
However, he is still 139 races behind England. Also, read Cristiano Ronaldo signed back to Manchester United.
Today, the British batting squad started the innings with two wickets in hand. Mohammad Sami took those wickets. England lost the two remaining wickets earlier in the day.
Root and Company were all out for 432 races. But more significant than that, England led by 353 runs in the first inning. After completing this race in the second inning, all eyes were on how many races India could run.
However, Trial Lord KL Rahul centurion left at first and returned to the pavilion. Johnny Bairstow took a big catch in 18.6 overs.
From the beginning of the second inning, Rahul looked quite shaky at Headingle’s wicket. Overton’s delivery bounces a bit more.
Rahul went to play defense, but the ball hit the shoulder of his bat and went straight for the second slip.
Bairstow was there. He gripped the latch with one hand. He has to come back today with only 8 races.
Then Cheteshwar Pujara was joined by another starter, Rohit Sharma, to lead the India innings. Today Rohit Sharma completed his half-century with 125 balls.
However, he achieved this milestone by reaching six limits and one over the limit. Finally, in 47.4 overs, Rohit Sharma was eliminated by Oli Robinson.
As soon as the ball landed on Rohit’s front leg, referee Richard Kettleborough lifted his finger. The Indian starter was not happy with the referee’s decision. He sat down to check.
However, he did not help. With the help of technology, the ball can be seen touching the edge of the leg stump. That is why the referee is inflexible in his decision.
Ultimately, Rohit had to come back for 59 races. However, they formed a significant 82 run partnership on India’s second wicket.
But the man who deserves the most credit for this association is Cheteshwar Pujara. There has been a lot of speculation about Pujara’s performance before this match.
There are many criticisms. Many even offered to drop him off and bring Hanuma Bihari to the team. But, at the right time and place, this Saurashtra hitter did his job and left.
Flawless hitting and perfect timing. More to explain Pujara in one word. He completed his half-century with 91 balls.
He had organized his entries up to then with nine limits. He has scored a total of 30 half-centuries in test cricket.
By then, however, the captain of the Indian cricket team Virat Kohli has reached the wicket. On the one hand, while Pujara entertains viewers with perfect art, on the other hand, Virat holds the wicket.
The Indian cricket team touched the 200-run mark in 76.1 overs. However, due to poor lighting, the game had to be stopped a bit earlier today.
Cheteshwar Pujara left the field undefeated in 91 runs. He has already reached the 15 limits.
On the other hand, Virat accompanies him with 45 races. Most importantly, they made 99 runs partnership for the third wicket.
Now, Indian cricket fans are seeing how early India can take the lead against England tomorrow.
