Initially stumbled; Rahane and Pujara take India by storm



The resistance of the Indian batsmen recovered from the early collapse on the fourth day. India lost wickets of Rohit Sharma and KL Rahul, who were in fine form in the first innings. Rohit Sharma (21 off 36 balls) and Rahul (5 off 36 balls) were the top scorers. Kohli, who scored 21 runs, also did not make a big contribution. But the middle order later saw resistance from Cheteshwar Pujara and Ajinkya Rahane. Pujara faced the English pacers through the defensive wall. On the fourth day, both the batsmen tried to prevent India from losing their wickets. Rahane, meanwhile, completed his half-century. India scored 141 for 3 in 69 overs.

Lead for England

India set a good score on the fourth day at Lord’s. Joe Root’s century helped England score 391 runs. He has a 27-run first innings lead. Root scored 180 off 321 balls. Root scored half of the team’s total. For India, Mohammad Siraj took four wickets and Ishant Sharma three. The Indian openers batted brilliantly in the first innings. The 100-run partnership between the two laid the foundation for India. Rohit scored 83 runs while Rahul scored 129 runs. Veteran pacer James Anderson took 5 wickets for England.
