James Anderson Admits England Got The Balance Of Bouncers And Full-Length Deliveries Wrong

England pacer James Anderson admitted the hosts were in the mood for some revenge against India when Jasprit Burmah came out to bat in the first session on the fifth day of the Lord’s Test. During England’s first innings with the bat, Jasprit Bumrah bowled a couple of menacing short pitch deliveries to James Anderson on day 3. The duel led to several heated exchanges over the next few days of the Test.

On Day 5, India was in deep trouble when Jasrit Bumrah and Mohammed Shami joined hands at the crease. England had a clear upper hand at that juncture. However, they let the advantage slip and lost the plot completely by resorting to the short-ball strategy with revenge on the mind.

James Anderson Admits England Got The Balance Of Bouncers And Full-Length Deliveries Wrong

Jasprit Bumrah and Mohammed Shami tackled the threat in impressive fashion and put on a record unbeaten 89-run partnership for the ninth wicket to help India set a good target which was defended in the end. In his column for The Telegraph, James Anderson opened up about his side’s bowling plans on Day 5 and gave his thoughts on where they went wrong.

“Potentially there was a bit of us wanting revenge on them when Bumrah batted on the last morning and we got carried away but we were genuinely trying to bowl them out. Sometimes you get it wrong as a bowling attack. Rooty has taken the brunt of the blame for it, but as a bowling attack, we have to be good enough to take those last few wickets. We got the balance of bouncers and fuller balls wrong.”

Anderson continued: “I felt every time I bowled at the stumps they blocked it or found a gap to squirt it into to get off strike. When that happens, you go to the short ball. You have catchers out knowing they will take it on. It felt like the best wicket-taking option but it was definitely the period where we lost the game.”

James Anderson mentioned that his altercation with Jasprit Bumrah was because the emotions got the better of him at that moment. He also regretted that as it took the limelight away from Joe Root, who played a fabulous unbeaten knock of 180 runs.

The Indian pacers, led by Jasprit Bumrah, went after England No.11 when he came out to bat on Day 3 of the Test. That led to flaring of tempers between the players of both teams for the remainder of the match, which the visitors won by 151 runs.

Jasprit Bumrah bowled a 10-ball over to James Anderson, in which he overstepped four times. In that over, he bowled a few short pitch deliveries to the veteran pacer. The Lancashire man didn’t take it nicely and had a little war of words with the Indian pacer.

James Anderson: It Can Be Hard To Find Rhythm And Length At Headingley

Looking ahead to the third Test, James Anderson explained the similarities between the Lord’s and Headingley and stated that it could sometimes be difficult to find the right line and length.

“Headingley can be a tricky place to bowl. It is similar to Lord’s in some respects because of the pronounced slope. It can be hard to find your rhythm and length. It is about not getting carried away when it is swinging and go searching for fuller length. You can get driven because the pitch is usually pretty good. It is about using the conditions to your advantage but not bowling too full.”

Mohammed Shami (56 n.o. & 1/13) and Jasprit Bumrah (34 n.o. & 3/33) played innings of their lives and then rocked the England top-order, before Ishant Sharma (2/13) and Mohammed Siraj (4/32) played their part to perfection to give the visitors a 1-0 lead in the five-match series. The third Test between India and England will get underway on August 25.

India Not Thinking Anything Like Getting Under England’s Skin In The 3rd Test: Ajinkya Rahane

Ajinkya Rahane has denied claims of India planning to get under the skin of England players in the third Test at Headingley. The India and England’s 2nd Test at Lord’s was truly an epic cricketing contest.

The manner in which India came from behind to beat England by 151 runs remains a testament to the side’s credentials. Other than outplaying England on the 22-yard pitch, the visitors also had an upper hand on the hosts when it came to verbal duels.

Ajinkya Rahane: India Not Thinking Anything Like Getting Under England’s Skin In Headingley Too

Since India’s dramatic victory over England at Lord’s, fans have been contemplating whether Virat Kohli’s men have been planning to get under the skin of the hosts in Headingley, the venue of the 3rd Test too. When Ajinkya Rahane was asked this question at the pre-match press conference ahead of the third Test, he categorically denied it. He rather mentioned that for India, it is important to play good cricket.

“We are not thinking anything like that (getting under England’s skin). For us, what’s important is to play good cricket, staying at the moment and play one game at a time,” Rahane said while addressing the media.

“What has happened in the last game, we just have to forget, we have to take positives and move on. Because every game is really important because of the (World Test) Championship,” he added.

Ajinkya Rahane has been a man in the spotlight. From leading the Indian team to a historic Test series triumph in Australia to silencing his critics with a half-century in the Lord’s Test, Ajinkya Rahane has constantly been talked about. Speculations over the Indian team management looking to replace Ajinkya Rahane have also been rife of late but the India Test vice-captain’s fighting 61-run knock in the second Test has eased a bit of pressure.

Ajinkya Rahane, who failed with the bat in the 1st innings at Lord’s managing just one run, came back with a crucial 61-run knock in the 2nd innings also having posed an important partnership of 100 runs with Cheteshwar Pujara. Both the batsmen rescued India from a tense situation; after the team lost three quick wickets in the 1st session in the form of Virat Kohli (20), Rohit Sharma (21), and KL Rahul (5).

Ajinkya Rahane Loves To Be In Focus And Isn’t Concerned With Criticism

During the press conference, Ajinkya Rahane even asserted that he is happy to be in the focus and being talked about as much. While the pressure to deliver is understandably high, the veteran batsman is thinking of contributing in every manner possible to the team’s cause.

“I am happy people are talking about me, I always believe people talk about important people. I am not too concerned about that, it is all about contribution for the team. Cheteshwar and I have been playing for a long, we know how to handle pressure and certain situations.

“We are not concerned about them, we are focusing on the team. We just want to contribute for the side, whatever we cannot control, we are not thinking about that,” he had said.

The Headingley challenge is expected to be a big one for India considering the team’s record at the venue. Ajinkya Rahane, who is considered one of India’s best batters overseas, will surely have a big role to play.

Indian tailenders Mohammed Shami and Jasprit Bumrah smashed a match-winning stand of 89 runs in the 2nd innings of the 2nd Test against England, which became a big reason for India’s victory at Lord’s. Earlier, the team was railing at 208-8 at the start of Day 5, having a 181-run lead.

James Anderson Opens Up On The Short Ball Barrage He Faced From Jasprit Bumrah

James Anderson, England pacer has opened up on the short-ball barrage he faced from Jasprit Bumrah in the second Test against India at Lord’s. James Anderson said it was probably the first time in his career that he felt a bowler was not trying to get him out.

The Indian pacers, led by Jasprit Bumrah, went after England No.11 when he came out to bat on Day 3 of the Test. That led to flaring of tempers between the players of both teams for the remainder of the match, which the visitors won by 151 runs.

James Anderson Caught Off Guard After Receiving Several Bouncers From Jasprit Bumrah

The England pacer admitted that he was caught off guard following feedback about the pitch he had received before he came out to bat. James Anderson’s fellow batters had told him that the pitch was slow and Jasprit Bumrah was not at his quickest. Speaking on the Tailenders podcast, James Anderson said he was taken aback as Jasprit Bumrah bowled a barrage of bouncers to him.

“I got caught off guard a little bit because all the batters coming in were saying how slow the pitch was,” said Anderson. “Banged in short; it was really slow. When I came out to bat, Joe said Bumrah was not bowling as quick as he normally does. And then, the first ball was 90 miles an hour and on the money, wasn’t it? And it felt like, I haven’t felt like this ever in my career. I felt he wasn’t trying to get me out.”

James Anderson reflected on the long over Jasprit Bumrah bowled that involved multiple no-balls as he struggled to survive that spell.

“I felt he wasn’t trying to get me out. He bowled an over, maybe 10, 11, 12 balls. He was bowling no-ball after no-ball, bowling short. I think he bowled two on the stumps which I managed to dig out. So for me, it was just about trying to survive that and get Joe back on strike.”

Jasprit Bumrah bowled a 10-ball over to James Anderson, in which he overstepped four times. In that over, he bowled a few short pitch deliveries to the veteran pacer. The Lancashire man didn’t take it nicely and had a little war of words with the Indian pacer.
It was revealed that James Anderson said to Jasprit Bumrah that when everyone else was batting, he bowled at a speed of 80 or 85 mph but as soon as England’s no. 11 walked out he started bowling at the speed of 90 mph.

James Anderson: England Took The Emotion Out

However, James Anderson reckons that England took the emotion out and tried to focus on dismissing India cheaply during the visitors’ second innings.

“Potentially the emotion can get the better of you at times. But, I thought the way we bowled in the second innings was pretty much the opposite. We took the emotion out of it. We just focused on the process of bowling them out, keeping the runs down.”

After a competitive first four days, England was thoroughly outplayed by the visitors on the final day, losing the second Test comprehensively by 151 runs. The two teams will now meet at Headingley, Leeds for the third Test, which starts on Wednesday.

James Anderson Critical Of Joe Root For Going With Mark Wood When Tailender Jasprit Bumrah Batted

James Anderson has slated Joe Root’s ploy to attack Jasprit Bumrah with short balls when he came into bat on the final day of the second Test at Lord’s. Bumrah opted for a barrage of short-stuff against James Anderson during Day 3 of the Test. The spell had led to multiple bouts of verbal altercations on the field between the players.

James Anderson Criticizes Joe Root For Going With Mark Wood When Jasprit Bumrah Batted

The England pacer reckons Joe Root might have been trying to get back at Jasprit Bumrah by removing him from the spell and bringing on Mark Wood.

“When Joe touched on getting a few things wrong, I think, potentially, when Bumrah came in, he brought Mark Wood on and took me off. That’s the sort of thing he is talking about getting the emotion get the better of him. That was a sort of – trying for him to have a taste of his own medicine type of thing, rather than trying to get him out.

“You could just keep me on and normally see if he plays any big shot or anything like that, whereas he went with Mark Wood straightaway,” James Anderson spoke on the Tailenders podcast.

The move clearly did not work, as Jasprit Bumrah and Mohammed Shami went on to stitch an unbeaten stand of 89 runs, eventually taking India to a winning position.

There was also an incident where while walking back to the Pavillion, James Anderson allegedly abused Jasprit Bumrah. And from there on, James Anderson was never quite in the match. Jasprit Bumrah and Mohammed Shami later went on to string an 89-run partnership for the 9th wicket that helped India win by 151 runs in the 2nd Test.

James Anderson: India Is A Passionate Side

However, James Anderson doesn’t believe that the England pacers bowled badly on the final day. He felt that everything went India’s way and the whole story could have been different if a chance went to a fielder’s hand.

“I thought they had a day as well. Chances just dropping either side of the fielders, dropping short, play and misses. On another day, one goes to hand and it’s a different story. But, all in all, it seemed that everything was against us that morning.”

James Anderson lauded India as a passionate side that channels its energy in the right way. He commended the way India batted and bowled on the final day to complete a victory that looked improbable at the start of the day.

“India are a passionate side. They use emotion differently from how we use it. They channel it well. We saw that on the last day. So I think that’s something we have got to think about going into the last three games.”

England has a difficult task at hand as they come into the third Test at Headingley. They trail the series 0-1. England’s pace attack, which was already depleted with injuries to Stuart Broad, Jofra Archer, and Ben Stokes, has suffered yet another setback after Mark Wood sustained a shoulder injury during the Lord’s Test. England’s fortunes will depend heavily on James Anderson in the third Test.

Mohammed Shami (56 n.o. & 1/13) and Jasprit Bumrah (34 n.o. & 3/33) played innings of their lives and then rocked the England top-order, before Ishant Sharma (2/13) and Mohammed Siraj (4/32) played their part to perfection to give the visitors a 1-0 lead in the five-match series.

England Lost Track By Concentrating On Intimidating Jasprit Bumrah Rather Than Getting Him Out, Says David Lloyd

David Lloyd mentioned that England lost track by concentrating on intimidating Jasprit Bumrah, who put on 89-run for the ninth wicket with Mohammed Shami, rather than trying to get him out. Entering the fifth day of the Lord’s Test as favourites to win the match, England was blind-sided by Jasprit Bumrah and Mohammed Shami’s counterattack.

The pair added an unbeaten 89-run partnership for India’s ninth wicket, and its effect was such that England could never recover from their dogged batting and eventually lost the match, chasing 272 to win. Mohammed Shami, in fact, recorded his second Test fifty and along with Jasprit Bumrah took India from 209/8 to 298/8 before captain Virat Kohli declared.

David Lloyd Opens Up On England Losing The Plot

The spirited fightback from the duo caught England off guard, and needing to survive 60 overs in the day, the hosts were bowled out for 120 in 51.5 overs, with Mohammed Siraj grabbing 4/32. That England was put on the defensive by India’s tail is a topic many former cricketers have offered their views on, with David Lloyd mentioning that the home team lost track by concentrating on intimidating Jasprit Bumrah, rather than try and get him out.

“The Test went away from England when Jasprit Bumrah came into bat. They just seemed intent on knocking lumps off him rather than getting him out. There’s always something great about a tail-end partnership. Bumrah and Mohammed Shami had fun at England’s expense. It looked as if England had lost the plot,” Lloyd wrote in his column for The Daily Mail.

Another department where India scored points over England was their top order. KL Rahul scored a century, aided by Rohit Sharma’s 83 and Virat Kohli’s 42 in the first innings. In the second innings, Cheteshwar Pujara (45) and Ajinkya Rahane (61) stitched a 100-run partnership which bailed India out of trouble.

David Lloyd Unimpressed As England Openers Were Dismissed Without Scoring In The 2nd Innings

England in contrast was nowhere near, with only captain Joe Root providing some substance. David Lloyd in particular was not impressed with England’s opening pair of Dominic Sibley and Rory Burns, who went for ducks in the second innings.

“That’s the first time both England openers have been out for naught in the same innings of a home Test. An incredible stat. The pair of them, Rory Burns and Dom Sibley were very square on again. I keep on seeing a lot of their back shoulders. You just can’t play that way at this level I’m afraid, however good the bowling is,” David Lloyd added.

If Jasprit Bumrah stole the show with bat and ball (3/33 and 34*), Mohammed Siraj (4/32) wasn’t ready to miss the opportunity to shine at the Home of Cricket as India took a 1-0 lead in the five-match series. Ishant Sharma, who did not play in the first Test due to a niggle, returned to the XI for the Lord’s and picked up three wickets in the first innings and two in the second.

While Mohammed Siraj and Jasprit Bumrah were the leaders, Ishant Sharma and Mohammed Shami (1/13) cannot be ignored for putting in the right support. Mohammed Shami (56* & 1/13 in 10 overs) and Jasprit Bumrah (34 n.o. & 3/33 in 15 overs) played innings of their lives and then rocked the England top-order, before Ishant Sharma (2/13 in 10 overs) and Mohammed Siraj played their part to perfection to give the visitors a 1-0 lead in the five-match series.

Jasprit Bumrah Should Needle The Opposition If It Bring The Best Out Of Him: Zaheer Khan

Zaheer Khan is massively impressed with Jasprit Bumrah’s bowling in the second innings of the Lord’s Test which India won by defeating England by 151 runs on Monday.

Jasprit Bumrah, who went wicketless in the first innings, produced 3/33 in the second innings as he combined with the rest of the Indian pacers to bowl England out for 120, who needed to chase down 272 for victory.

Zaheer Khan: Jasprit Bumrah Was Motivated After Facing And Bowling A Few Bouncers And He Should At Times Needle The Opposition

Zaheer Khan feels the over which Jasprit Bumrah bowled to James Anderson on day 3 was the catalyst behind the India pacer’s brilliant show in the second innings.  After Jasprit Bumrah had sent down a thunderous over to James Anderson which was filled with bouncers, hitting the veteran England bowler on the helmet and the body, the pacers of the home team tried to go similarly after Jasprit Bumrah while he was batting.

The tactic however failed miserably as a determined tailender Jasprit Bumrah put a price on his wicket and with Mohammed Shami, added 89 unbeaten runs for the ninth wicket as India declared on 298/8.

“If by getting angry, he can carry himself and perform like this, I believe he should at times needle the opposition. See, in the first innings, he had gone wicketless and being the class bowler that he is, I’m sure it must have bothered him,” Zaheer Khan said on Cricbuzz.

“After that, the whole Anderson episode that unfolded, the bouncers he bowled to him and then while batting, the manner in which the England pacer went after him… all those things motivated him, and he channelized that anger in the right way. England must be thinking ‘we should have let Bumrah bowl bouncers’ and not mess with him. The intensity with which he bowled, was worth praising.”

The thing that transpired between Jasprit Bumrah and England is what Zaheer Khan believes acted as motivation and the former India speedster reckons that if this brings the best out of Jasprit Bumrah, it may not be a bad idea for him to indulge in a bit more needling with the opposition.

Zaheer Khan On Ollie Robinson Scalp: It’s Never Easy To Bowl A Slower Ball From Round The Wicket And Get A Batsman Out LBW

Of the three wickets, Jasprit Bumrah picked on Day 5, one that took the cake was the dismissal of Ollie Robinson. England had to play out 10 overs with three wickets left and Ollie Robinson and Jos Buttler were trying to ensure England walked away with a draw. However, a piece of brilliance from Jasprit Bumrah denied those plans.

He came from around the wicket, pulled a trick out of his T20 repertoire – the slower ball – and got Ollie Robinson out leg before wicket. Zaheer Khan added that the particular wickets showed the mental space the pace spearhead Jasprit Bumrah was in.

“Bowling a slower ball is challenging, but to bowl it from round the wicket, from that angle to get a batsman out LBW, you need bowl from close to the wicket, which is never easy. Bumrah did a very tough job.

“The thought process was excellent. When you’re coming round the wicket, even the batsman is thinking ‘they might use the bouncer more’. To bring out that kind of variation and to have that thinking to get that wicket, Bumrah was fabulous,” he mentioned.

If Jasprit Bumrah stole the show with bat and ball (3/33 and 34*), Mohammed Siraj (4/32) wasn’t ready to miss the opportunity to shine at the Home of Cricket as India took a 1-0 lead in the five-match series. Ishant Sharma, who did not play in the first Test due to a niggle, returned to the XI for the Lord’s and picked up three wickets in the first innings and two in the second.

While Mohammed Siraj and Jasprit Bumrah were the leaders, Ishant Sharma (2/13) and Mohammed Shami (56* and 1/13) cannot be ignored for putting in the right support.

Virat Kohli’s Plan To Bowl Bouncers In The 2nd Test Against James Anderson Was Executed By Jasprit Bumrah: Sanjay Manjrekar

Sanjay Manjrekar feels Virat Kohli may have asked Jasprit Bumrah to use the ploy of bowing bouncers against James Anderson. Sanjay Manjrekar reckons so because he feels Jasprit Bumrah is not someone who would do something like that.

There were enough clips on social media to suggest that India skipper Virat Kohli asked Mohammed Siraj to get under the skin of James Anderson by targetting the helmet. The instructions were there for everyone to see. But it was the Jasprit Bumrah-James Anderson battle that changed the course of the game.

Sanjay Manjrekar: Virat Kohli’s Plan Was Executed By Jasprit Bumrah

In a column, Sanjay Manjrekar wrote about the entire episode. It all started towards the end of day three when Jasprit Bumrah peppered James Anderson with a few short deliveries. Sanjay Majrekar said that no one expected Jasprit Bumrah to bowl that sort of length to James Anderson. The veteran went on to write that it was a Virat Kohli plan that the bowlers went on to execute.

“I am guessing this was Virat Kohli’s plan executed by Bumrah. Go after the main guy in the opposition, soften him up a little, stir him up a bit or maybe injure him in a way that the main English weapon was blunted,” Sanjay Manjrekar wrote in his column on Hindustan Times.

“Whatever the reason, I just loved it. Why? Because right through my playing career no captain of mine – barring one – did this to any opposition fast bowler fearing the backlash. This is Virat’s great attribute. He is genuinely aggressive and fearless and he is in your face,” Manjrekar wrote.
India and England played out a memorable Test at Lord’s, where the visitors emerged as deserving winners. But apart from the result of the match, the entire team under the leadership of Virat Kohli showed great character to come out of difficult situations. There were a few altercations throughout the match, which only helped India perform even better.

Sanjay Manjrekar: It Was Evident That James Anderson Was Genuinely Affected

There was also an incident where while walking back to the Pavillion, James Anderson allegedly abused Jasprit Bumrah. And from there on, James Anderson was never quite in the match. Jasprit Bumrah and Mohammed Shami later went on to string an 89-run partnership for the 9th wicket that helped India win by 151 runs in the 2nd Test.

On this Manjrekar said, “you could see Anderson was genuinely affected. He had lost his calm as a competitor. It seemed to me his ego was bruised a little.”

Ishant Sharma And Mohammed Shami Complement Each Other, Says Steve Harmison

Steve Harmison, former England fast bowler explained what makes India seamers Ishant Sharma and Mohammed Shami a great pair.
Steve Harmison said Ishant Sharma is India captain Virat Kohli’s go-to man while he described Mohammed Shami as more English than any of the bowlers currently playing for England.

Steve Harmison: Ishant Sharma Is Virat Kohli’s, Go-To Man

If Jasprit Bumrah stole the show with bat and ball (3/33 and 34*), Mohammed Siraj (4/32) wasn’t ready to miss the opportunity to shine at the Home of Cricket as India took a 1-0 lead in the five-match series.

It all started with the mind-blowing unbeaten 89-run 9th wicket partnership between Mohammed Shami (56*) and Jasprit Bumrah that set the game up and swung the momentum right in India’s favour from a position wherein the hosts were looking favourites to take the game.

“You’ve got a tall bowler in Ishant who likes to get the ball going in naturally and because he has such a nice seam position, he can at times roll his fingers a little bit and get the ball nip away. So that way he’s very very dangerous as you can be doubtful about where your off-stump is. That’s why he is Virat’s go-to man as he can give him a lot of overs,” Harmison told ESPNCricinfo.

Both Mohammed Shami and Ishant Sharma played important roles in India’s 151-run win at Lord’s. Ishant Sharma, who did not play in the first Test due to a niggle, returned to the XI for the Lord’s and picked up three wickets in the first innings and two in the second.

“Shami I think is more English than some of the seamers that we’ve got in our team because he runs up, he’s got great core strength, a big backside, a bit like Matthew Hoggard and my time. We used to have big backsides, could really swing it away in and around off stump and I think Shami is a fine fine bowler,” Harmison added.

While Mohammed Siraj and Jasprit Bumrah were the leaders, Ishant Sharma (2/13) and Mohammed Shami (1/13) cannot be ignored for putting in the right support.

Mohammed Shami (56 no & 1/13 in 10 overs) and Jasprit Bumrah (34 & 3/33 in 15 overs) played innings of their lives and then rocked the England top-order, before Ishant Sharma (2/13 in 10 overs) and Mohammed Siraj (4/32) played their part to perfection to give the visitors a 1-0 lead in the five-match series.

Steve Harmison: Ishant Sharma And Mohammed Shami Complement Each Other A Lot

Steve Harmison who played 63 Tests, 58 ODIs, and 2 T20Is for England, said the duo of Mohammed Shami and Ishant Sharma complement each other very well.

“With that, you’ve got somebody like Ishant who is 6 foot or 4 and Shami who is about 5 foot 10. One is bringing the ball back in, the other is taking it away. They complement each other a lot,” he added.

Indian Pace Attack Makes Life Easy For Their Batsmen: Manoj Prabhakar

Manoj Prabhakar praised India’s pace bowlers, who didn’t have to rely on spinner Ravindra Jadeja for even one wicket for the second successive Test in England as they helped the team script a Test win at Lords on Monday, and have made overseas victories possible due to their aggressive wicket-taking bowling.

The win in the second Test at Lord’s was India’s third win out of five Tests overseas this year. Two of these have come in Australia, while one is in England.

Manoj Prabhakar: India’s Current Crop Of Pacers Are Attacking

India’s world-class pace attack pulled off an incredible heist with the bat and then a magnificent performance with the ball to decimate England by 151 runs in the second Test here on Monday. The fifth day at the hallowed Lord’s was as good an exhibition of Test cricket with India bowling out England for 120 as they tried to bat it out without going for a chase of 272 in 60 overs.

Mohammed Shami (56 no & 1/13 in 10 overs) and Jasprit Bumrah (34 & 3/33 in 15 overs) played innings of their lives and then rocked the England top-order, before Ishant Sharma (2/13 in 10 overs) and Mohammed Siraj (4/32) played their part to perfection to give the visitors a 1-0 lead in the five-match series.

“India’s pace bowlers currently are all attacking. Earlier, we would have defensive bowlers. Many times, they would focus on line and length and wouldn’t attack. Now it is different. When you have two attacking bowlers in Shami and Bumrah, it also rubs on to someone like Ishant Sharma who lately has started to feel that if he doesn’t attack, he will be left out. There is healthy competition in our team,” former India speedster Manoj Prabhakar told IANS.

“If we have been able to defend 200-odd (271), it means our bowling has got a lot of strength. We can play to win out of India,” added the former pace bowler, Manoj Prabhakar.

While Jasprit Bumrah, Mohammed Shami, and Ishant Sharma had already established themselves as a dangerous trio – their 136 wickets in the calendar year 2018 upstaged the 130-wicket haul of West Indian pace trio, Joel Garner, Michael Holding, and Malcolm Marshall in 1984, the addition of Mohammed Siraj has given India an extra edge.

Mohammed Siraj, who made his debut on the recent tour of Australia, brings in energy and zeal. India bowling coach Bharat Arun had recently lauded the right-arm pace bowler’s self-confidence.

“Siraj has the hunger and determination. His self-confidence is his biggest strength and success factor,” Arun had said recently on R Ashwin’s Youtube show.

Skipper Virat Kohli acknowledged him for not being overwhelmed by the occasion while playing at Lord’s.

“(For) Someone like Siraj playing for the first time at Lord’s, he bowled superbly,” Kohli added.

Between Jasprit Bumrah (22 Tests), Ishant Sharma (24), and Mohammed Shami (26), they have a combined tally of 276 wickets between January 2018 and now, and that throws up a cumulative average of around 22.5 – a remarkable figure apropos of any comparisons.

The pace attack has also pushed the likes of Bhuvneshwar Kumar or Umesh Yadav to the bench and has ensured that the opposition doesn’t give India seamer-friendly wickets in their backyard.

“Since the bowlers are good, the home teams don’t leave grass for Indian batting. They know the Indian pacers are capable of skittling them out. This allows batsmen to do well. Our batting managed to give target to the bowlers. We put England batting in a position from where they couldn’t attack or even defend,” added Manoj Prabhakar, who played 39 Test matches for India.

So far, Team India hasn’t required the services of the spinners and so they’re unlikely to make any changes to the winning combination. The third Test between the two sides will be played from August 25-29 at Headingley, Leeds.

Joe Root Only Capable Of Scoring 100s: Sachin Tendulkar

Sachin Tendulkar, the former legendary batsman says the current England team is in complete awe of India’s world-class seam attack with only its skipper Joe Root looking capable of getting a big hundred.

In an exclusive interview, the iconic batsman spoke on a host of issues including India’s victory, the standard of the England Test team, skipper Virat Kohli’s technical adjustments, Rohit Sharma’s dominance against the new ball, and Jasprit Bumrah’s return to wickets with 12 scalps in the last two games.

Sachin Tendulkar: England Batsmen Aren’t Capable Of Scoring Tons Consistently Apart From Joe Root

Joe Root has amassed 1277 runs playing 10 Tests in 2021, averaging 57.21, and has hit 5 tons. He scored 228 and 186 against Sri Lanka and hit 218 in the 1st Test against and in India while scoring 109 and an unbeaten 180 in the first two successive Tests when India toured England.

“When I saw Joe Root putting India in after winning the toss, I was really surprised and I felt that in itself was an indication that England was worried about our fast bowling attack.  Bowling first wasn’t an ideal decision by the England captain and credit to our openers, they were brilliant. This England team has had a history of collapses.In this team, I don’t see anyone other than Joe Root(capable of scoring 100s). Teams of the past had a number of such players,” Sachin Tendulkar said about England batsmen.

“Other than Root, I can’t find anyone(to score consistent tons) and that’s the state of their batting today. Maybe the reason for Root to opt for fielding first,” Sachin Tendulkar said about England’s batting collapse.

“He(Rohit Sharma) has been a leader there and KL has supported him brilliantly. As far as playing pull shot is concerned, he has cleared the fence with that shot and I am looking at what he has been able to achieve for the team in both Tests. Rohit has left the ball and defended the ball brilliantly or equally well. He was always a fantastic player but seeing his last few innings in England, I can say he has definitely gone a notch higher,” Sachin Tendulkar said about Rohit Sharma.

“They played a very crucial role considering that we were effectively 28 for 3 when they came together. Two more quick wickets and we would have been 60 for 5 and dynamics would have been completely different. They stabilised the innings,”Sachin Tendulkar said about Ajinkya Rahane And Cheteshwar Pujara’s partnership.

Ajinkya Rahane paired with Cheteshwar Pujara (45) to put up a solid 100-run stand for the 4th wicket to put India in a comfortable position. An afternoon of dead-batted defiance from Cheteshwar Pujara, 45 from 206 balls, and Ajinkya Rahane, 61 from 146, was followed by a three-wicket intervention that keeps England in the hunt to reward Joe Root’s masterful 180 on the third day with a 1-0 series lead on the final 5th day.

Resuming from 181-6, leading by only 154 runs, India was soon reduced to 209-8, losing both their overnight batsmen in the form of Rishabh Pant and Ishant Sharma before the pair of Mohammed Shami and Jasprit Bumrah’s partnership changed the course of the match, tilting it in favour of India.

 

Sachin Tendulkar: England’s Body Language Wasn’t Great On The 5th Day

Virat Kohli is having an off-form with the bat recently in Tests but his captaincy tactics have been spot on and his aggressive instinct has given India many Test wins of late. For Joe Root, it’s just the opposite as he is in the form of his life but his team has lost to New Zealand and India recently.

“Virat hasn’t had a great start. It is the mind that leads to technical errors and if the start isn’t good you start thinking about a lot of things. Because anxiety levels are high you tend to over compensate for your movements.Form is also your state of mind along with the body working in harmony,” Sachin Tendulkar said about Virat Kohli.

“If you can dismiss the top-order by bowling in good areas, why wouldn’t you try that with the tail-enders. I thought they were impatient and felt they wanted to scare them by bowling short but it actually was one of the reasons that triggered their motivation to stay at the crease and add those invaluable 100-odd runs. England’s body language wasn’t great,”Sachin Tendulkar said about England’s performance on the 5th Day.

“Today this bowling attack is the best in the world. It’s a reflection of talent, discipline and ability to work hard on fitness and wanting to learn more. I felt before the WTC final, Bumrah didn’t have enough long spells under his belt. He is the kind of bowler who is like the more he bowls, the better he gets,” Sachin Tendulkar said about Jasprit Bumrah and India’s pace attack.

“Siraj is a quick learner and adapts well to situations. He has come across as a fast learner. He has spring in his strides and gives his 100 per cent every time,” Sachin Tendulkar said about Mohammed Siraj.
Mohammed Shami hit a fifty and Jasprit Bumrah hanged around for a solid 34 as the two tail-enders added 89 not out for the 9th wicket. India then returned to the field with their pacers charged up. After picking up 2 wickets early, India went on to bowl England out for 120 in less than 52 overs to go 1-0 up in the 5-match series
