Watch Ind v Eng 2nd test day 3 full highlights today from Dr. Y.S. Rajasekhara Reddy ACA-VDCA cricket stadium, Visakhapatnam (India) Saturday 19th November 2016. Yesterday’s third session was a good one for India because they need early wickets which didn’t happen in Rajkot. Spinners did well and JE Root batted beautifully in the company of H Hameed.
Yesterday was a really good day for India, they capitalize it fully with R Ashwin and debutante J Yadav. India scored 455 runs in their first innings in 129.4 overs all out. India gets the big wicket of England’s captain in early of their first innings and it was Mohammed Shami who dismissed AN Cook when England was at 4.
Toss: India won the toss and elected to bat.
When AN Cook’s wicket down then it was 2.3 141.9 kph, he has broken the stump into two. What a sensational start. Beauty from Shami. They say top of off, he has burst through the off stump. That’s a peach. This is pitched on off, Cook expects it to angle away, but the ball seams back in sharply to hit the off stump. Absolutely sensational bowling from Shami. Rahane retrieves the half of the stump that has flown towards short third man 4/1.
England scored 103 runs in 49 overs with five wickets down, R Ashwin took two wickets, J Yadav and Mohammed Shami these two took one wicket each of them. It was an absolutely top-class performance, also the recovery in the morning by R Ashwin and J Yadav after India lost few wickets in the last session of the first day that again was something commendable because it was only because of their good batting and India reached at 450 plus.
If it didn’t happen as India whole team dismissed at 390 or 350 then there was a possibility that England physiologically in the much better frame of mind when they came in to respond to that total. After AN Cook wicket, when H Hameed wicket down during running then it was a huge blow for India and that was the moment where England lost their batting line.
