IND vs ENG India beat England by 151 runs to win second test

India defeated England in the second test match. 
On the last day of the Lord's Test, on the strength of the bowlers, Team India, while turning the dice, did not allow the British to play even two sessions and defeated them by 151 runs. With this win, the Indian team has taken a 1-0 lead in the five-Test series. The first test was a draw. India had set a target of 272 runs to win. In response, England's team was reduced to 120 runs. England had to take two sessions to save the Test but the Indian fast bowlers did not allow this to happen. He dealt with the British within 51.2 overs. The heroes of India's victory were Mohammad Siraj (four wickets), Jasprit Bumrah (three wickets), Ishant Sharma (two wickets) and Mohammed Shami (one wicket).

Bumrah and Shami took the new ball and gave India a great start by sending both the openers to the pavilion in the first two overs. The ball going to Bumrah's leg side was waved in the air with the outer edge of the bat of Rory Burns (Zero). It was caught by Mohammad Siraj running. Shami got Dom Sibley (Zero) caught behind the wicket in the next over. England scored one run for two wickets. Shami would soon have given India the wicket of Haseeb Hameed, but Rohit Sharma dropped his easy catch in the slips.

Root and Butler upset

However, this mistake did not cost India very much as Hameed could only score nine runs. Ishant made him leg before the ball coming in. In Siraj's next over, the ball reached for four runs through Rishabh Pant's gloves after kissing the bat with Root. Ishant's credible appeal against Bairstow was turned down by the umpire but the decision in the DRS went in India's favour. Got this wicket just before tea time. Due to this the score became 67 runs for four wickets.

Captain Joe Root was the biggest obstacle in India's path to victory. But Jasprit Bumrah got him caught by Virat Kohli at first slip just after the tee break. Root scored 33 runs. Jos Buttler would also leave early but Kohli could not catch his catch. Together with Moeen Ali, he batted for about 16 overs. Moeen Ali (13) and Sam Curran (0) were dealt by Mohammad Siraj in two consecutive balls.

Shami-Bumrah dominated India's batting

Earlier, the highlight of India's second innings was the unbroken 89-run partnership for the ninth wicket between Shami (56 not out off 70 balls) and Bumrah (34 not out off 64 balls). India played only nine balls in the second session and meanwhile declared their second innings at 298 for eight after adding 12 runs. India had scored 364 runs in their first innings, in response to which England scored 391 runs and took a 27-run lead. India started playing 181 for six in the morning and added 105 runs for the loss of two wickets in the session before a charismatic performance from Shami and Bumrah. This added to the trouble for England, who were looking in better shape after early dismissals of Pant (22 off 46 balls) and Ishant (16 off 24 balls) in the morning.

Shami hits second Test fifty

The Indian team was not even looking in a position to take a 200-run lead after scoring 209 for eight at one time. Shami and Bumrah, however, batted with ease and thrilled their teammates including captain Virat Kohli with their shots. The most important thing was that he played without any pressure. In such a situation, Shami's flicks and Bumrah's drives were emphasizing the problems of the England players. How much pressure Root was under can be gauged from the fact that he scattered the fielding but it only helped the Indian batsmen and they easily stole a couple of runs.

Shami targeted spinner Moeen Ali on the slow falling pitch. Shami completed the second half-century of his Test career by hitting four consecutive balls of this spinner and a 92 meter long six at midwicket. For this he played 57 balls. Bumrah then crossed the previous highest score of his career (28 runs). In the morning, the Indian team was in charge of Pant but he was given a simple catch to wicketkeeper Jos Buttler off the ball of Ollie Robinson. Along with him, yesterday's second undefeated batsman Ishant was also dismissed leg before by Robinson.
