England made a comeback in the second Test between India and England at Lord’s. At the end of the day, England were 119 for 3. In response to India’s 364 in the first innings, Mohammad Siraj gave England the first two setbacks, but after that, captain Rory Burns and captain Joe Root took the innings. Siraj severely disturbed the English batsmen. However, due to Siraj’s mistake during the England innings, Team India lost two successive reviews. In fact, at Siraj’s behest, the captain used the DRS twice against Kohli Root, but both times the decision went in favor of the English captain. While taking the second DRS, wicketkeeper Rishabh Pant tried to stop Kohli, but the Indian captain did not listen to Pant and Team India had to bear the brunt.
In fact, in the 21st over of the England innings, Siraj’s ball fell to Joe Root’s pad, and then the Indian fast bowler forced Kohli to take the DRS. Virat took the review, but the ball missed a leg stump. After just one over, the 23rd over, the ball hit the root pad again and Team India players, including Siraj, made a strong appeal. This time Siraj asked the captain to take the DRS, but he did not push. When captain Kohli asked Rishabh Pant to take a review, Pant denied it. Although Pant repeatedly refused, Kohli eventually took the DRS and the ball again lost a leg stump. This time, Pant tried to stop Kohli from taking the DRS, but Virat laughed and used the criticism. The video has become quite viral on the social networking site.
