The second test match between England and India at the Lord’s cricket ground witnessed some intense moments. Players of the two teams indulged in banter, arguments, which led to heated exchanges. As per a report, a few Indian players denied Ollie Robinson a way to walk out to bat.

Mohammed Sirah dismissed Sam Curran for a golden duck to reduce England to seven down for 90 runs on the board. The next batsman, Ollie Robinson walked out to the field. According to a report in Guardian, two Indian players who were carrying drinks stopped Ollie Robinson on this way for a few seconds.

“As (Ollie) Robinson descends the pavilion steps, a couple of India players in tracksuits are coming back in the opposite direction, having just been out on the field delivering drinks. Robinson stops and waits for them to step aside. They do not step aside. Robinson waits. They wait. Eventually, after a fashion, they sort of awkwardly squeeze past each other. The whole encounter lasts barely a couple of seconds and yet as a motif for this bruising, absorbing final day it is hard to beat,” the report claimed.

Virat Kohli Sledging England batters

During India’s second innings at Lord’s, England players including Ollie Robinson, Jos Buttler, James Anderson, and Mark Wood were having a go at Jasprit Bumrah and Mohammed Shami. The Indian skipper Virat Kohli, decided to give it back to the English players.

As Ollie Robinson walked out to bat, Virat Kohli started sledging the batsman. “Pujj (Pujara), How boring was your innings? Maybe, that’s how you survive in a test match” “This guy (Ollie Robinson) laughed at me when I missed a cover drive,” Kohli was heard saying.

The England pacer was dismissed was Jasprit Bumrah for nine runs. India won the Lord’s test match by 151 runs and are leading 1-0 in the five-Test series.
