The second match of the five-match Test series between India and England is taking place at Lord’s Historic Ground. After the fourth day of play, the door to victory for the dual teams was opened. In the second innings, India scored 181 for 6 and the team’s total was 154 runs. According to the result of the second Test match, the first session of the last day is considered very important. Former India cricketer and commentator Akash Chopra has predicted the Lord’s Test result. Given the circumstances of the match, Akash believes the English side will be able to take a 1-0 lead in the series.
Speaking on his YouTube channel, Akash said England would be able to record a victory in the second Test. The former cricketer, who explained the reason behind it, said the pitch was slow, but batting on the last day of the Lord’s was not that difficult. He said the bounce on the pitch is definitely going up and down, but the footprints are not visible on any side of the pitch and the ball does not rotate too much. Akash said that the entire team of India would be all out in 20 overs and on the fifth day James Anderson could become England’s most successful bowler.

The former opener said Joe Root would perform his best on the last day of the Lord’s Test. Root’s form is the best in the series so far and he has scored a half century and two centuries. The start of the fourth day of the second Test match did not go well for India. KL Rahul, who scored a century in the first innings, could not show anything special in the second innings and was dismissed for just 5 runs. Rohit Sharma started well but he could not turn it into a big innings. Both Rahul and Rohit were sent to the Mark Wood Pavilion. Captain Virat Kohli (20) was taken by Sam Curran. Cheteshwar Pujara (45) and Ajinkya Rahane (61) showed signs of returning to form and compiled a century for the fourth wicket. However, in the last period, Moeen sent Ali Rahane and then sent Ravindra Jadeja (3) to the pavilion to get the English team back in the match.
