Bairstow desperate to keep wickets in fourth Test

Share

The addition of Jasprit Bumrah and Ashwin giving regular breathers to the pace department has brought the two attacks closer. Do join us back for the second session.

WICKET! Hardik Pandya removes Alastair Cook for 17 runs, thanks to a fantastic catch by captain Kohli bat third slip. Virat Kohli's bowling change works and Pandya adds another wicket to his tally.

Shami did get Buttler (21) after lunch, however, Kohli snapping up a catch at third slip, and the Indian paceman removed the risky Stokes (23) lbw. So, Ravindra Jadeja has been gearing up with both bat and ball, hoping for a first call-up in this series just in case Ashwin isn't available at toss time. Bairstow OUT on 6!

The Indian fast bowler picked up his second wicket when he trapped Stokes in his crease for a dogged 23 off 79 balls, with England in serious trouble.

WICKET! Joe Root dismissed by Ishant Sharma in a similar fashion as the hosts lose an all-important batsman. An fantastic outswinger by Sharma and Root has to make his way back to the pavilion.

If momentum is a real thing in sport, India should start the third Test as favourites. Early breakthrough for India.

Heitmann last posted five months ago, but in a video in December he showed off his expensive McLaren, according to BuzzFeed News . Trevor Heitmann , 18, drove his high speed $500,000 McLaren the wrong way down a freeway at 100 m.p.h.

"I think one of our big strengths as a squad is our strength of character and, at home in particular, we´re very good at bouncing back after hard weeks".

As for England one-day worldwide gloveman Buttler, who deputised behind the stumps at Trent Bridge, replacing Bairstow as keeper, Root said: "It was a medical call, he (Bairstow) didn´t seem fit to be able to keep 100 percent in a Test match for five days and that was the call that was made".

India go unchanged while two changes for England; Sam Curran and Moeen Ali come in place of Chris Woakes and Oliver Pope.

On the other hand, India skipper Kohli hinted that he found no reason to tinker with his match-winning team, hinting at playing the same XI as the last match.

Kohli now leads the run charts with 440 runs, which includes two centuries and as many half-centuries and once again, the Indian batting will more or less depend on the 29-year-old.

The last time India played at the Rose Bowl stadium in 2014, they lost by 266 runs. "He (Bairstow) didn´t seem fit to be able to keep 100 percent in a Test match for five days, and that was the call that was made".
