Team India have been named on the first day of the second match of the five-match series between India and England at Lord’s Historic Ground. While batting at the crease, KL Rahul scored his sixth century of his Test career, while Rohit Sharma played an excellent innings of 83 runs. Skipper Virat Kohli contributed 42 and once again he was unable to turn his good start into a big innings. Oli Robinson trapped Kohli in the slips off the route and sent Kohli to the pavilion. Immediately after Kohli’s outing, the hearts of millions of Indian fans were once again broken and the 71st century wait was long.
If you are a bowler and want to get Kohli .. keep on bowling. There is no need to bowl quality balls. He gifts you his wicket in poor balls by playing poor shots. No man, this is not Kohli we know. pic.twitter.com/c8Q1Hg8QB0

Virat Kohli appeared in good form in the 42-run innings and he also hit some good shots. He shared a 117-run partnership for the third wicket with Indian captain Rahul and crossed the team’s score of 250. Kohli seemed quite prepared for the crease and at one point he seemed to end his 71st century wait at Lord’s, but Virat Robinson couldn’t understand his outgoing ball and lost his wicket. While some fans troll the leader of Team India, some cheered them on.
Batting first after losing the toss, Rahul and Rohit put on a good start for Team India and both added 126 runs for the first wicket. After dismissing Rohit, Rahul continued to bat responsibly and added 117 for the third wicket with captain Kohli. After Virat’s dismissal, Ajinkya Rahane was in the crease with Rahul till the end of the day after he faced 22 deliveries. Cheteshwar Pujara’s flap show continued in the match and he returned to the pavilion with just 9 runs. For England, James Anderson took two and Robinson took one wicket.
