Some worry sign for India as the pitch getting better for batting and with no offer for the fast bowler India didn’t find any clue about getting the wicket of the English Captain Joe Root. With Sam Curran,Olle Robbinson still come to bat England moving towards a very big total unless they didn’t lose wickets quickly. Exciting 2 days ahead for this test at the home of cricket Lord’s. India have to take wickets quickly to be back in the game.
