India vs England 3rd Test Match Report: What a great day for crickets fans, No one can accept that Test Match also can finish in just two days, But it happened and, its a great day for the Test Cricket Match, The hype of the Pink ball cricket was longer than the actual Test, it’s a great win for Indians, Once time England dominating from 1-0 and now India takes lead in the series with 2-1.
When it happens, it feels so easy. I don’t think much, just want to continue this form. I am happy that when I am not able to contribute with the bat, I am able to produce with the ball.
Virat Kohli (Indian Captain):
To be honest, I don’t think the quality of batting was up to standards. We were 100 for 3 and then got bowled out for less than 150. It was just the oddball turning and it was a good wicket to bat in the first innings. It was bizarre that 21 of the 30 wickets fell to straight balls, Test cricket is about trusting your defense. Lack of application ensured it was a quick finish. Bumrah said I am getting workload management while playing. Ishant said I am playing my 100th game and still don’t get to a bowl. I have never experienced this before.
Joe Root (England Captain):
We were 70 for 2. But we didn’t really capitalize on it. 250 on that wicket would have made it different. We will come back using this hurt and come back as a better team. The plastic coating on the ball gathered pace off the wicket. It was high-quality bowling as well. Both sides struggled on that wicket. We have seen with the ball in hand, we can pick up wickets. I think it sums up the wicket if I am getting a fifer. Congratulations to Ishant for 100 Tests and Ashwin for 400 Test wickets.
