The second match of the four-Test series being played between India and England is being played at the M Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai. Batting first, Team India appears to be in a very strong position till the tea break. Rohit Sharma, who flopped with the bat in the first Test, has scored a century and is at the crease. Vice-captain Ajinkya Rahane is also playing Rohit’s lot and there is a century partnership between the two. India did not have a good start and Shubman Gill (0), Cheteshwar Pujara (21) and captain Virat Kohli (0) could not do much with the bat. Kohli was clean bowled by Moeen Ali on zero, which the team India captain could not trust and took the help of the third umpire.
After the dismissal of Cheteshwar Pujara, when Virat Kohli came to the ground, the Indian team’s score was 85 runs, losing 2 wickets. The spectators who returned to the stadium after almost a year were expecting a big innings from the captain of Team India. However, Virat failed to live up to his expectations and was clean bowled without opening an account off Moin Ali. Kohli was trying to play the off-spinner on the leg side, but the ball went between his bat and pad and went to the off stump. Virat did not understand how he got bowled and felt that the ball hit the stump with the keeper’s pad. The captain of Team India asked the umpire, after which the help of the third umpire was taken, but Kohli appeared clearly bold in the replays.
Virat Kohli is seen as being bold enough, before this Test series against England, Kohli was last bowled clean in the year 2018, while in this series Kohli has been bowled for the second time. Earlier, in the second innings of the first Test, Ben Stokes bowled the captain of Team India and showed the way to the pavilion. The Indian team has made three changes to their playing eleven for this match, adding Kuldeep Yadav, Mohammad Siraj and Akshar Patel to the squad, while Jaspreet Bumrah, Shahbaz Nadeem and Washington Sundar have been dropped.
