The second Test of the five-match series is being played at the historic Lord’s Ground between India and England. The first day of the match was entirely in the name of Indian batsmen. KL Rahul and Rohit Sharma put together a good start for Team India and by the end of the day India were 276 for three. Former England captain Michael Von Lords wrote on Twitter today that it was bowlers’ day after England won the toss and Joe Root decided to bowl first. After the day’s game was over, Team India former cricketer Wasim Jaffer trolled Wan by sharing a photo of Chris Gayle.
In the photo shared by Jafar, Chris Gale is seen shaking the clock at the Eden Gardens grounds. Wan raised questions about Team India playing XI. India made just one change in the playing XI and replaced Ishant Sharma with injured Shardul Thakur. Three changes in England’s playing XI. After the announcement of the playing XI of both teams, Vaughn wrote on Twitter that England had chosen the right playing XI and India had not. After losing the toss, India started to bat and Rahul-Rohit contributed 126 runs for the first wicket.
It feels like England have picked the right team and India haven’t … Ashwin had to play for India to give him more batting and his quality bowling … He bowls well in all conditions … Perfect bowling day … feels like a wicket day … #ENGVIND

James Anderson bowled after Rohit Sharma scored 83. After this, Cheteshwar Pujara scored only 9 and James Anderson caught Johnny Bairstow on the delivery. India’s score was 150 for two. Captain Virat Kohli came to the crease, scoring 267 with Rahul. Virat appeared to be in good form, but Ollie Robinson’s ball took the edge of his bat and Root was standing in the slips and thus Virat had to return to the pavilion. Rahul (127) and Ajinkya Rahane (1) are in the crease.
