Yesterday was an epic day in Indian cricket because of Virat Kohli’s double ton and Jayant Yadav’s maiden century that gave India a decisive upper hand in the first innings. Kohli broke many records through his excellent batting. First was the record of most runs by any Indian batsman against England. Another was that of most runs in a series by an Indian captain. Jayant Yadav scored his 104 runs off 204 balls and built a record partnership of 241 for the eighth wicket.
However Kohli was star of the day as he played some mesmerizing strokes during his 8 hours long innings. To bat for such a long time on a difficult pitch needs extraordinary mental integrity and dedication. He is equipped with these qualities which made it possible for his team to score 631 runs in the first innings in response to England’s 400 runs.
The visitors started their second innings with a huge deficit of 231 runs. Their batting was visibly under pressure of this score which baffled them and Indian bowling made excellent use of this superiority in runs to get some quick wickets. When proceedings of the day ended, England were 182 for 6, still trailing by 49 runs with only four wickets left in their hand.
Joe Root played an aggressive innings against two of the best spinners in the world and scored 77 off only 103 balls. It was a spectacular but desperate effort which truly entertained the whole crowd. Jonny Bairstow is still at the crease with 50 runs. However rest of the batsmen failed in the test and couldn’t withstand pressure of the moment. Now India are on the verge of another victory. They need only four wickets and a whole day is at their disposal. It seems they will achieve their target in the first hour of today’s proceedings.
