New Delhi. England took the lead in the first innings of the Oval Test against India (India v England, 2nd Test). The big reason for this was the great batting of Oli Pope, Johnny Bairstow and Maine Ali. At one stage England lost 5 wickets for 622 runs, but then Pope-Bairstow and Pope-Maine Ali gave England a first-innings lead in a half-century partnership. However, the Indian team also made a big mistake while bowling. Team India gave life to Maine Ali without applying.
In fact Jaspreet Bumrah came to bowl in the 60th over and he hit the ball on Main Ali’s pad, hitting a great yorker. But none of the players appealed against Mumin except Bumrah. When the replay was seen later, Maine Ali was out of lbw. The ball seemed to hit Maine Ali’s bat but it didn’t. The ball first touches its pad and then makes contact with the bat.
Maine Ali from Jadeja
However, after the overs, Rabindra Jadeja showed the way to Main Ali. Maine Ali caught by Rohit Sharma on the verge of playing a big shot off Jadeja. However, Maine Ali made a 71-run stand with Pope off 121 balls before being dismissed. Earlier, Johnny Bairstow and Oli Pope also scored 89 off 139 balls.

Team India could not take a good start
On the second day of the game, fast bowler Umesh Yadav gave a great start to Team India. He first fired Overton and then he was also able to send David Malan to the pavilion. It looked like Team India would cover England from here but Oli Popper stood at the crease like a wall in his first Test of the series. With Bairstow, he counter-attacked the Indian bowlers. Shardul Tagore and Mohammad Siraj hit four fours off 10 balls. Pope returned to the Test team and scored a great half-century. By tea, England scored 227 for 7 and took a 36-run lead.
