Indian wicketkeeper-batsman Rishabh Pant found himself in all sorts of embarrassment after he was left clueless by Ollie Pope’s shot and he had no idea where the ball went. India and England carried on their tussle in the first Test of the four-match series in Chennai as the visitors took control of the proceedings on Day 2.
Joe Root and Ben Stokes carried the English onslaught right where they left on Day 1. Ben Stokes played the aggressive role as he first completed his half-century while Joe Root reached his 150-run mark. Stokes kept the attacking flair from one end while Root kept the scoreboard ticking from the other hand.
Rishabh Pant Left Clueless On The Field
As the English batsmen kept their attacking flair on with the bat, Rishabh Pant kept his blabber and chat. Pant, being his usual himself, kept speaking from behind the stumps. Meanwhile, the English batsmen took charge and Joe Root, the English skipper, completed his fifth double-century.
However, a rather hilarious moment appeared in the 151st over of the game when English batsman, Ollie Pope swept a ball off Ravichandran Ashwin but the ball hit the upper edge and flew over Rishabh Pant’s head as he was left clueless, wondering where the ball is. Eventually, Rohit Sharma went for the ball which was behind Pant’s head.
India Stage A Comeback In The Last Session Of The Second Day
After being bolstered by the English batsmen all through Day 1 and Day 2 of the Chennai Test, the Indian bowlers made a good recovery in the final session of Day 2 of the Chennai Test match. The Indian bowlers picked 4 wickets in the final session of Day 2 to get back in the Test match.
The highlight of the match so far has been Joe Root’s double century as he smashed the fifth Test double century of his career. The Indian bowlers have mostly been tormented on both the days as the visitors have dominated the majority of the sessions so far. England finished at 555/8 at stumps on Day 2 of the Chennai Test.
