So far, England vs India Test series has witnessed a lot and at Lord’s it has been nothing differnt. But to be precise, there is bad luck and tough luck but then comes the incident happened to Cheteshwar Pujara in the form of a terrible mix-up when he returned to the pavilion via being run-out by Ollie Pope.

After the complete washout on Day, one at Lord’s, the start-stop play on Day two saw England keeping their noses ahead.

After starting the day with puffs of clouds hanging over, the hosts took advantage of winning the toss. As Joe Root wanted, James Anderson delivered the required goods with his sensational special.

Virat Kohli’s immature calling sees the wrong side of Pujara:

Initially, it was Root, who won the toss and put Indians to bat first. Moreover, utilising the conditions, Anderson showed his mojo by bowling right into the zone.

His incredible outswinger drawn curtains on Murali Vijay’s innings before later found the edge of KL Rahul’s defending willow. However, when Anderson looked like running riot, the weather god made its way to the middle.

After a brisk period, the rain once again saw a couple of balls to force the players to stay in the middle. But with the rain coming down once again, the on-field umpires decided to take an early lunch – to give enough time for the staff to clear water as well.

Just after returning to the field post-lunch, the rain started to pour down again. However, umpires tried to look at it by providing a couple of more balls before the disaster for India took place.

Moreover, Pujara, who nudged the ball to off-side sets off for a quick run. Also, the non-striker, Virat Kohli responded to the call, but after taking a couple of steps, he showed reluctance in completing the run. Thus leaving the batsman stranded in the middle.

The flamboyant Pujara has nothing to do instead stood in the middle and had a stare at unhappy Kohli. In addition, Pujara, while walking back to the pavilion, rain took centre stage, and the umpires called covers back on the wicket.
