Rishabh Pant and Washington Sundar put India in the drivers seat after day 2 | XtraTime
XtraTime Web Desk – A brilliant century of Rishabh Pant under pressure put India in a comfortable position after day two. Not only Rishabh, but Washington’s contribution was also immense and without his 60 * blow India would not have been in this position.
The top did not click once again. Rohit fired back but was fired by Stokes on 49. Virat Kohli failed to score a point as Stokes fired him with a bouncer. Rahane looked good but failed to convert his start and was sacked for 27.
India was 80 for 4 and things were not going well for India. India was still 125 races late and needed a strong partnership. This is exactly what Rishabh Pant and Washington Sundar did. The 101 of the pants was very important for India. Their partnership for 113 races changed India’s fate and India leads with 89 races at the end of the playing days.
The highlight of the day definitely belongs to the Rishabh pants. He played a reverse sweep of James Anderson’s delivery. It made him more special because Anderson was playing with the new ball. Anderson nevertheless took 3 wickets for the team while Stokes and Leach chose 2 each. India beats 294 points with 2 wickets in hand.
