It was a fine performance by the Indian bowlers as they restricted the England team to a total of 287 runs as they added just two runs to their overnight total of 285 runs in their first innings. On the other hand Indian team are off to a poor start after losing 3 quick wickets in the initial overs at the Edgbaston Cricket Ground here on Thursday.
India needed just 10 balls on the second day to end England’s innings, that slipped from a comfortable 216/3 to 287.
Pacer Mohammed Shami, who started the proceedings along with off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin, got Sam Curran (24) caught behind by Dinesh Karthik, with the stumper making no mistake this time around. Karthik had dropped Curran on the opening day off the same bowler.
Brief Scores: England 287 (Joe Root 80, Jonny Bairstow 70, Keaton Jennings 42; Ravichandran Ashwin 4/62, Mohammed Shami 3/64).
