India vs England 2024

‘Darr ke ye ghr me hi haar gaye’ – Fans fume as England beat India by 28 runs in 1st Test

Skipper Rohit Sharma’s resilient 39 emerged as the highest score by an Indian batter in the second inning.

England beat India by 28 runs

In a gripping encounter at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium in Hyderabad, England pulled off a sensational turnaround to defeat India by 28 runs in the first Test. Ollie Pope emerged as the hero with a match-winning century, scoring 196 runs off 278 balls, adorned with 21 boundaries.

While with the ball, the inexperienced Tom Hartley, making his Test debut, stole the spotlight. He clinched a remarkable maiden five-wicket haul, claiming figures of 26.2-5-62-7. Ben Stokes, leading England, orchestrated a stunning victory on Indian soil, setting a challenging target of 231 runs for the hosts.

In response, the Rohit Sharma-led Indian side faltered, succumbing to a total of 202 runs in 64.3 overs. Despite a valiant effort by Ravichandran Ashwin and KS Bharat, who stitched a crucial 57-run partnership for the eighth wicket—the highest in the second innings—their dismissals extinguished India’s hopes of a comeback.

The pairing of Mohammed Siraj and Jasprit Bumrah managed a 25-run partnership but couldn’t forestall the inevitable. Hartley’s exceptional performance culminated in India’s innings coming to an end. England’s adept bowling attack, spearheaded by Hartley, secured a 1-0 lead in the five-match series.

Rohit Sharma failed to put up a show with a bat

Skipper Rohit Sharma’s resilient 39 emerged as the highest score by an Indian batter in the second inning, yet it fell short in the face of England’s determined bowling effort. Ravichandran Ashwin and Srikar Bharat exhibited resilience with a partnership of 57 runs for the eighth wicket, attempting to extend the match into the final day.

However, their efforts were in vain, as England emerged victorious, setting the stage for a compelling series. The second Test of the five-match series is scheduled to commence in Visakhapatnam on Friday. The unexpected twists and turns in this thrilling contest have heightened anticipation for the upcoming battles between these two cricketing giants.
