After losing five wickets for 98 runs, the manner in which the Indian team has come back against England in the fifth and final Test has now made this match even more exciting. The special thing is that Ravindra Jadeja, who played a very good partnership with Rishabh Pant, is still present at the crease. As long as he stays at the crease, India’s chances of scoring runs will only increase.
If the Indian team is successful in scoring 400 runs, then it will be very good. Chasing it can prove to be very difficult for England. After the end of the first day, the Indian team had scored 338 runs at the loss of 7 wickets.
Ravindra Jadeja is unbeaten on 83 and is supporting Mohammed Shami, who is still waiting to open his account. Indian team should first set a huge target of more than 400 runs. Then give the initial blow to the England team. If the Indian team succeeds to lead 100 to 150 runs then their hold on this match will be very strong.
On the second day, if the Indian team wants to take an edge, the biggest challenge will be Root. Joe Root is in terrific form, and Bayer is known for scoring big scores. If he belongs to which party for a while, then he can create trouble for the Indian team.
Jasprit Bumrah will be seen captaining the team for the first time. It will be interesting to see how he manages both his bowling and captaincy. Bumrah’s captaincy will have a big hand in which way this match will go. Jaspreet Bumrah is the first fast-bowing captain for India after Kapil Dev. He has never captained any team before even in first-class cricket also.
With each match that I watch, my love for the game just increases. All I dream of is to join my passion for writing with that of the game and pen down the live-action.
As a person, I am a quick learner and work well in a team for that is what wins the series.
