India vs England 2016, 5th Test, Day 3: Twitter Reacts As KL Rahul Leads India’s Strong Reply

KL Rahul fell one run short of a well-deserved double century but laid a strong foundation for India’s strong reply as the hosts finished the third day on 391 for 4 in reply to England’s first innings total of 477.

Earlier, openers gave the hosts a solid start as they added 152 runs for the first wicket before Parthiv Patel was dismissed by Moeen Ali for a well-made 71. In-form batsmen Cheteshwar Pujara and Virat Kohli could not do much and returned to pavilion after scoring 16 and 15 respectively. However, Rahul held firm from one end and completed his fourth Test century to lead India’s strong reply. He was ably supported by Karun Nair, who made amends for his failures in the last two Tests by scoring his first Test fifty. Their huge partnership of 161 runs was broken when Adil Rashid dismissed Rahul for 199.

At the close of the day, Nair was batting on 71 while Murali Vijay, who could not open the innings due to an injury, was playing on 17.

An avid sports lover, i always wanted to pursue a career in football. But just like the millions out there i did not put in the hard work needed to achieve my dream and now i have become a fan instead of the player. Anyway, writing for sports has kept me closer to this field. One more thing, yours sincerely is a die-hard Liverpool fan.
You will never walk alone.
