India vs England: Ajinkya Rahane Says Partnership With Virat Kohli Was Crucial

Zaheer Khan Trent Bridge

"Currently Kohli is fighting a lone hand against a suddenly rampant England attack, and that allows the bowlers the luxury of expending the bulk of their energy in seeking his wicket".

# WICKET! Pant sent off by Broad's delivery. However, by the end of the day's play, Rishabh Pant's fearless batting was the talk of the town as he got off the mark in Test cricket with a six only off the second ball of his innings.

It was 38th Test match of Virat Kohli as skipper and it was also 38th time in a row when Indian squad was changed. Coming to the 3rd Test, Kohli and Shastri will aim to get team combination right with the most awaited change likely to be the inclusion of 20-year-old Rishabh Pant, who might replace Dinesh Karthik, who is in awful form.

Kohli remained, seemingly certain for his second ton of the series, only to be tempted by Rashid into edging a drive to Stokes at slip.

But for his fine performance at Lord's, where he took four wickets and posted a maiden Test century, it might have been Woakes who was left out for this match.

Rashid added: "The bowlers toiled really well and the batsmen did well too, so it was a good day's cricket". Cheteshwar Pujara might had done nothing wrong in that case, Woakes applied through the perfection leading to a more ideal catch of Adil Rashid standing at deep backward.

The hosts, though, were blunted in the afternoon, with Stokes and Rashid disappointing. They played their shots, ran their singles and twos as India maintained a healthy run-rate of 3.52 pe over throughout the day.

There was little resistance from the lower order on Sunday, with India losing their last four wickets for 22 runs in 19 balls.

"When you see a team dominate like England did at Lord's you get a bit bored but today has been a proper contest".

Joe Root yesterday seemed unsure what to do if he won the toss. I was looking to bowl wicket-to-wicket and mix my pace up.
