Name of the English team on the second day of the second Test match between India and England at Lord’s Historic Ground. After India were bowled out for 364, England were 119 for 3 at the end of the day. India lost the last 7 wickets with just 88 runs. After Pooja, Ajinkya Rahane’s flap show continued in the match and he returned to the pavilion after scoring just one run. Fans’ anger over the current form of both batting has exploded on social media and they have urged Rahane-Pujara to be excluded from the team.
It is high time for Team India to get rid of Pujara and Rahane and Pujara who have faced 100 deliveries and 10-15 runs, yet if they face 200 deliveries, a good ball will play them out. Rahane played a good innings in the 4-5 series. Also think about Time to Groom SKY, banter and Captain pic.twitter.com/NSyLw5lVZ2

Pujara has played a total of 13 Tests since 2020 and this time he has scored 552 runs at an average of 25.09 in 23 innings. Pujara has not scored a century in the long run and he has not been able to cross 25 boundaries in the last 10 innings. Rahane’s farm is no longer liked. Since the year 2020, he has scored 54. in 22 innings of 13 Tests at an average of 25.76. This time, the vice-captain has scored a century and a half. Rahane and Pooja Farm have also increased the pressure on Team India. Fans are urging Hanuma Vihari, Prithvi Shah and Mayank Agarwal to replace these two batsmen.
Captain Virat Kohli’s stats are not particularly impressive and the Indian captain has scored just 387 runs in 24 innings at an average of 24.19. If India defeats England in their Test series, the return of the trio to form will be very important for Team India. Batting in 364 runs, the English team did not get off to a good start and showed Mohammed Siraj Dominic Sibley (11) and Haseed Hamid an open pavilion. Rory Burns then added 85 for the third wicket with captain Joe Root. Before the end of the day, Ishant Sharma comforted Team India by scoring 49 runs for Burns. Johnny Bairstow is backing the captain with 6 runs while Root is standing in the crease after scoring 48.
