Chasing 194, India lost their top half of the batsmen for a cheap score. Though the Indian team management and the fans are quite nervous about the result, Hardik Pandya showcases his cool attitude while dancing in the dressing room during the 1st Test of England Vs India 2018 at Edgbaston.

The Baroda-based youngster was seen hearing songs in the change room when India lost their fifth wicket. Despite being the next batsman to walk into the middle, surprisingly, Hardik displayed his dance moves to the cricketing world.

84 runs for India, five wickets for England:

The first Test between India and England is set to turn out to be a cracker of the contest. With the game hanging in a great balance, the first session of the penultimate day will decide the winner of the 1st Test in Birmingham on August 4 (Saturday).

India’s key to the victory relies on skipper Virat Kohli, Dinesh Karthik and Pandya respectively while England needs quick wickets to lead the series. With quite a time left for the game, both the teams would go hard at each other.

It would be interesting to see how Joe Root will lead the side with only 84 runs in the bank. However, they required the major wicket of Kohli while the rest of the Indians are yet to make their mark.

 Hardik Pandya might play a key role:

With run margin is around the corner and having the handful of strokes in the bag, the all-rounder will carry a lot of weight on the day four of the exciting game. Being a specialist finisher in the limited-overs circuit, Indians would expect Hardik to go for the money.

However, the initial phase of the game played by wicketkeeper-batsman Karthik and Kohli will also make a massive difference in the context of the game. All in all, a thriller is on its way at Edgbaston, this afternoon.

After the conclusion of the first Test, both the sides will en route to the historic Lord’s Cricket Ground in London. The match is scheduled to play on August 9th (Thursday).
