ENG vs IND 2018: 2nd Test, Day 2: Mohammed Shami Removes Keaton Jennings to Give India a Headstart

Team India pacer Mohammed Shami removed England opener Keaton Jennings with an incoming delivery to give his team a head start in the first innings.

Meanwhile, England looked solid in the first few overs. Jennings and Alastair Cook looked confident to provide England a solid start. The pair put on 28 runs for the first wicket in just 7.3 overs. However, when they looked all set, Mohammed Shami drew the first blood of the morning session.

It was full-pitched delivery from Shami angling into Keaton Jennings in the middle-stump line. Jennings tried to flick all around the ball. However, he lost his body balance and struck low on the pad. It was an easy call for the umpire who doesn’t hesitate to adjudge him out.

However, Keaton Jennings after much deliberation with Cook decided to go for a review only to lose it. The India camp erupted in joy and so did Mohammed Shami, who has his first wicket.

James Anderson skittles India

James Anderson put England on the driver seat with a five-wicket haul in the second Test against India at the Lord’s Cricket Ground. He returned with five wickets as they bowled out India for a mere 107 in a rain-marred day.

They brought in Cheteshwar Pujara, however, things didn’t change much in their favour. The visitors lost their first wicket in the first over itself as Anderson cut Murali Vijay into two halves to castle his stumps. KL Rahul, opening in this game soon became another victim of Anderson’s.

All hopes were pinned on India skipper Virat Kohli but he failed to deliver this time despite getting a chance. This le the floodgates open and England bowlers rolled all over it.

Along with Anderson, Chris Woakes contribute with two while Stuart Broad and Sam Curran chipped in with one each.
