English Bowlers Also Deserve Recognition: Michael Vaughan

While England’s batting team has received most of the attention, Vaughan believes the bowlers also deserve recognition for their valiant efforts. 

Taking to Twitter on Monday, Vaughan wrote: 

“All the talk about England’s batting is great but don’t underestimate the way they are bowling very strong batting line ups Out in the 2nd innings of the Test consistently to give them these chases .. #ENGvIND.” 

After dismissing Shubman Gill, James Anderson was unable to gain much ground, but captain Ben Stokes stepped in on Day 4 and handled the ball well.

Stuart Broad took the valuable wicket of Cheteshwar Pujara before Ben Stokes went through the lower order, returning with figures of 4/33 in 11.5 overs. 

Additionally, Jack Leach, who was thoroughly outplayed in the first innings, responded with the wicket of Rishabh Pant. Matthew Potts also contributed with a few wickets.

England had a strong start while chasing 378 runs, putting 107 runs for the opening wicket. The Indian bowlers were kept at bay by Alex Lees and Zak Crawley, who were confident in their defense. 

Then, though, England’s batting had a momentary collapse as the visitors lost a few fast wickets. However, Joe Root and Jonny Bairstow were back at it and brought their team back to life.
