The second Test of the five-Test series between India and England is taking place at Lord’s. England batted better in this test than the first Test. Joe Root scored an unbeaten 180 in the Lord’s Test and England scored 391 in the first innings. England lost no wickets in the first session of the third day. But then veteran bowler Ishant Sharma and young Mohammad Siraj shook England’s middle order. Siraj proved to be India’s most successful bowler. He looked 94 and took 4 wickets. After his performance, he praised former India captain Sunil Gavaskar. Gavaskar said of Siraj that he got one wicket for every ball.

India’s greatest batsman said on the Sony Sports Network, ‘The thing about batsmen is that when they encounter fast bowlers, they follow the bowlers’ body language. Whenever the batsman feels that the bowler is a bit tired, he thinks he can run a couple of balls. But this did not happen with Siraj. Until the end, Siraj appeared to be getting wickets for every ball. Only then did he allow England batsmen to rest.

Supporting Gavaskar’s words, former fast bowler Ashish Nehra also praised Siraj, saying, “He bowled spectacularly.” As a bowler he did everything. From the first ball to the last ball, he had no shortage of energy. Mohammad Siraj took the wicket of Dom Sibley on the wicket and bowled Haseeb Hamid, who returned to England after 6 years on his next ball. Siraj took Johnny Bairstow’s wicket and broke the 121-run partnership between Captain Root and them. After this, Siraj made his fourth victim in the form of Olly Robinson.
