Fiery spells from the English pace department left Indian line-up clueless in the second test at Lord”s. Ashwin remained the lone warrior and the top scorer for the side in both the innings and the instability exhibited by the top order has certainly left India in tatters and in a must-win situation at Nottingham. Several critics lashed out at the side for their poor display for skills.
Indian skipper Virat Kohli took social media to express his feeling regarding the recent performances in England. The icon player after a dismal show in the second test dropped down to the second spot in the ICC Test batsmen rankings.
Virat Kohli who amassed over 200 runs in the first test at Birmingham, failed to replicate the same at the mecca of cricket. He also suffered a stiff back in due course of the match and is expected to be back on the field this Saturday.
In his Facebook account, Virat Kohli mentioned “Sometimes we win and other times we learn. You never give up on us and we promise to never give up on you either. Onwards and Upwards.”
The Lord”s test is India”s fifth consecutive loss at England over the years and the team management will be making to build an effective squad for the Nottingham test.
Can the team break their shackles and show who they are?
