IND vs ENG 1st Test: A display of pure domination from India in the 1st test till now! India managed to take a lead of as many as 190 runs after the first innings on a turning track and this might be the match for the home side. Here we are, with India’s 1st Innings review and scorecard in IND vs ENG 1st Test.

It looked like a tough wicket to bat on when England batted on it but Rohit and Jaiswal made it doubtful for critics. What a cricketer Yashasvi Jaiswal is! Smashing FOUR off the first ball, Jaiswal made his intentions clear. He took on the debutant Tom Hartley for two sixes in his first over and India crossed the 50-run mark just under 7 overs in a test match on a turning track.

Rohit and Yashasvi constructed an 80-run opening stand and Leach took the skipper’s wicket. Shubman Gill then made a hold on the other end whereas Jaiswal continued his brutal assault on the English bowlers. Root then caught and bowled Jaiswal when he was at 80.

Gill went soon for just 23 and then Rahul and Shreyas built an impressive 60-off runs partnership. Shreyas Iyer fell against leg-spinner Rehan Ahmed and Rahul stood at the other end. The wicketkeeper-batsman scored 86 runs and became the first wicket of Tom Hartley.

Bharat joined Jadeja and played an important knock of 41. Ashwin went for cheap just scoring 1 off 11 balls following an unfortunate runout. The number one all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja played one of the best knocks of the match where he ended up being the third Indian batter to get out on 80s.

Jadeja and Axar weaved an excellent partnership of 78 runs which took them over 400. Joe Root took two back-to-back wickets (Jadeja and Bumrah) and pulled back some momentum. Axar Patel scored 44 runs off 100 balls and was the last wicket to fall in the Indian innings. India were all out for 436 runs in the first Innings.

Batting first, England were driving the game till Rohit Sharma called spin to the game. The spin-trio of India- Ashwin, Jadeja, and Axar- uprooted England’s innings. England were all out at 246 and now India lead by 190 runs.

This England Tour of India got more hype via Bazball. After Brendon McCullum took over as the team’s head coach, under the leadership of Ben Stokes, England have played Test cricket in an aggressive fashion. This fearless brand of cricket has worked for them and England have not lost a single series since they acquired it.
