Day 2 of the ongoing fourth test between India and England has been off to a great start for the visitors as they picked up the most important wicket of in-form Dawid Malan moments after the day started. After a brilliant bowling performance by team india in the second half of Day 2, they have so far been successful in maintaining that momentum on Day 2 as well. And if they keep pressing the English batsmen further for one or two sessions, they will surely wrought havoc in England’s batting lineup.
It was once again the hero of Day 1 Umesh Yadav who picked up the big wicket of Dawid Malan just like he did it yesterday with Joe Root. Umesh Yadav is the latest inclusion in the Indian XI for the ongoing 4th test and so far he has emerged as an out of syllabus bowler for them. Even the best batsmen of the Indian team are having a hard time coping up with his pace and swing that is making his deliveries very unpredictable.
Yesterday he clean bowled England captain Joe Root with a lethal in-swing. This time however, left handed batsman Dawid Malan was caught behind off Umesh Yadav’s out-swinging delivery. The pacer seemingly has every skill set in his arsenal and is using it to the fullest to give the opposition batsmen a hard time.
At Drinks, England have scored 76 runs at an expense of 5 wickets and they trail by 101 runs still. India seemed to be stuck in a tricky situation when they scored just 191 runs in the first innings but as it now stands, they are clearly dominating the game and the ball is now in their court. It might be predicted that England will fall down within the next session and if it so happens, India might as well go for a win.
