New Delhi. Only 2 days of the Oval Test (IND vs ENG Oval Test) have passed between India and England. But the results of the match have started to show. Both teams are all out in two days. However, England’s upper hand seems a little heavy at this point. Because he scored 290 in reply to India’s 191 in the first innings. In this sense, the hosts took India’s over-run lead. This benefit could be reduced. Because at one point England lost 5 wickets for 62 runs and the hosts were 129 runs behind India. But the Indian bowlers could not tighten the screws and Oli Pope (81) and Chris Oakes (50) gave the team a 99-run lead.
Umesh Yadav further admitted that the Indian team was relieved after taking 5 wickets early. The England batsmen took the opportunity to form an important partnership in the sixth and seventh wickets to take the team to a score of 200 runs. First Johnny Bairstow and Oli Pope added runs for the sixth wicket and then Maine Ali and Pope added runs1 for the 7th wicket and put England in a strong position.
We bowled badly in the middle overs: Umesh
“We had a good start on the second day,” Umesh said. In the first 40 minutes, 2 wickets were taken. But then the performance of our bowlers weakened and we gave up 40 runs in 7-8 overs. Because of this, the England batsmen got a chance to get in rhythm and through important partnerships they not only got their team out of trouble, but also got a respectable lead over India.

‘We gave England batsmen an easy run’
The Indian fast bowler further said that we also made a mistake, because after taking two early wickets, we failed to rein them in. We gave more runs in the middle over. Had it not been so, the picture of the match would have been different and our hold would have been stronger than before. However, the match is still the same. Because the mood on the pitch has changed completely. The first day where there was moisture and bounce on the pitch. But as the match progressed, the pitch changed.
I think the track changes when he bats and we bowl. But we think the way our batsmen are playing, they will do well and score big in the second innings on this pitch.
On the second day, India scored 43 runs without wickets and are still 56 runs behind England. On the third day, Rohit Sharma and KL Rahul will be responsible for furthering this partnership.
