Today is the second day of the fourth test match between India and England. England started the day and tried to dominate India. India had scored only 191 runs in their first innings. India dealt a blow to England early in the day. Umesh Yadav dismissed David Malan. After this Olly Pope, Jonny Bairstow took over England’s innings. After Bairstow, Pope got Moeen Ali’s support. This pair troubled India a lot. There was also a negligence of Virat Kohli and Team India in this. Here Team India made such a mistake, due to which the wicket got out of hand.
Actually, the fifth ball of the 60th over of England’s innings hit Moeen Ali on his feet. Jasprit Bumrah was doing this over. He bowled a yorker to Moeen Ali. Moeen Ali played this ball. But after two overs it was found that India could have got a wicket on this ball had she appealed. Two overs later, replays showed that the ball had hit Moeen Ali’s shoes first and was going straight to the wickets. If India had seen this thing and appealed, it would have got Moeen Ali’s wicket earlier. Moeen Ali was on the score of 14 at that time. However, on the second ball of the 68th over, Ravindra Jadeja ended Moeen Ali’s innings. He scored 35 runs, but India could have got this wicket earlier and England could have been deprived of a big partnership.
This was the situation till tea time
England scored 227 runs for the loss of seven wickets till tea time. Pope is playing after scoring 74 runs. Chris Woakes is playing with him by scoring four runs. England started the day with 53 runs for the loss of three wickets. He lost his fourth wicket in the form of David Malan. Bairstow then shared an 89-run partnership with Pope. Bairstow was shown the way to the pavilion by Mohammad Siraj. After this Moeen Ali took the team with a partnership of 71 runs with Pope and gave England an edge over India. By the end of the second session of the day, England extended their lead over India to 36 runs. Pope has faced 143 balls in his innings so far and has hit six fours.
