After the Lord’s defeat, England bowlers have shown aggression with the ball by utilizing the pitch conditions pretty well by generating consistent pace with perfect line and length. Under the leadership of experienced campaigner James Anderson, English bowlers dismissed the team India very cheaply.
Later, the openers Rory Burns and Hameed utilized their technique beautifully and made brilliant half-centuries and were unbeaten at the end of the day’s play. At 120/0, both English openers started the second day with confidence.
Indian speedster Mohammad Shami has given the much-needed breakthrough for the team India by cleaning up Rory Burns for a magnificent delivery. Rory Burns departs at 61. England is 136/1. Dawid Malan is at the crease with Hameed.
