‘Bazz-ball ki saari hawa nikal gayi’ – Fans react as India strengthens their grip on 1st Test against England in Hyderabad

India vs England day 2

India has positioned themselves favourably at Stumps on Day 2, accumulating a score of 421 for the loss of 7 wickets, thereby establishing a lead of 175 runs. The partnership between Ravindra Jadeja and Axar Patel has been crucial, contributing 63 runs off 117 balls. With three wickets in hand, India aims to further solidify their dominance by building a consolidated lead of 200–250 runs.

Ravindra Jadeja and Axar Patel are currently forming a resilient partnership, striving to bolster India’s first-inning total and maximise the lead. The earlier collaboration between KL Rahul and Jadeja played a pivotal role in propelling India past the 250-run mark quickly, putting England on the defensive. In his innings, Jadeja remained unbeaten at 81 runs off 155 balls, featuring 7 fours and 2 sixes, while Axar Patel contributed an unbeaten 35 runs off 62 balls, including 5 fours and a six.

However, the day began with a fruitful first session for India, scoring 103 runs but losing two crucial wickets, Yashasvi Jaiswal and Shubman Gill. Despite a strong start, Shreyas Iyer failed to capitalize and was dismissed for 35, attempting a slog sweep against Rehan Ahmed, only to find Tom Hartley in the deep.

England failed to grip the game with early scalps

Although England claimed early wickets, India maintained a commendable scoring rate of almost 4 runs per over during the session, alleviating pressure on the batsmen. The partnership between KL Rahul and Shreyas Iyer, who contributed 63 runs, brought India close to England’s first-inning total by lunch.

As the game progresses to Day 3, India’s focus will be on strengthening the lead and potentially closing the match by day’s end. Fans are closely watching and reacting to India’s performance with anticipation and excitement. The team’s strategic efforts and individual contributions have sparked discussions among cricket enthusiasts about the outcome of the match.
