India and England shared the morning session of day two of the fourth Test at Southampton as the visitors revived their inning after the loss of two wickets.
Meanwhile, India lost both their openers as they will curse themselves for not converting the start. Starting at 19 for one on day two, India lost KL Rahul at the score of 37.
Rahul (19) once again perishes after getting a good start, third times in a row. It was a late inswinger from Stuart Broad which hits Rahul’s pads. It was a clever delivery from the England seamer as Rahul head falls over to miss the line of the delivery. India went for the review only to lose it after Kumar Dharmasena judged it out without hesitation.
The tall and lanky Broad shed fire on the morning session at Southampton as he kept asking questions. This time it was Shikhar Dhawan, but the on-field umpire ruled it as not out. Joe Root went for the review but lost it this time. However, he didn’t have to wait too long as Shikhar Dhawan (23) departs to a fuller delivery.
This brought India skipper Virat Kohli in the middle, who will be keen to revive the innings with Cheteshwar Pujara. The onus will be on Virat Kohli who had scored most the runs for the visitors on this tour.
The talismanic run-scorer started the game six short of his 6000 Test runs. He brought it with a streaky four to become second fastest India after Sunil Gavaskar to achieve this feat. However, since then, India looked comfortable in the middle.
Kohli and Pujara dominated the scheme of things as they went to lunch at 100 runs without any further damage.
