India were bowled out for 145 in their first innings on the second day of the Pink Ball Test in Ahmedabad on Thursday as Joe Root (5/8) picked up his first ever fifer in First Class cricket. Trailing by 13 runs at the end of the first day’s play, India resumed with Rohit Sharma and Ajinkya Rahane from 99/3. They were soon sucked into a spin whirlpool, with Joe Root and Jack Leach (4/54) bowling in tandem. When India were bowled out at the end of the first session, they had a first innings lead of 33 runs.
Earlier on Day 2, India posted a first innings score of 145 in response to England’s 112, taking a lead of 33 runs. India began Day 2 on a poor note, losing quick wickets. For England, Joe Root was in top form, registering five wickets. In the second innings England will be aiming to not lose a lot of wickets before the Dinner break. Meanwhile, India will be trying to restrict England and build some momentum.
Again it is a poor start for England. Zak Crawley and Jonny Bairstow got out in the very first over. As per latest update England has accumulated 60/5 after 20 overs. For more updates and cricket betting tips stay tuned with us.
