Even in the Test series against England, Virat could not score a half century in four innings.

Meanwhile, former India captain Sunil Gavaskar seems to be quite upset about Virat’s batting style. Gavaskar has advised Kohli to play Test V-sep.

Earlier, 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.
