India and England are playing the fourth day of the second test at Lord’s. The guests lost speedy wickets in KL Rahul, Rohit, and Virat Kohli.
They have made a little lead of 59runs till now. As the match was as yet in progress, a video of ball-altering surfaced via web-based media. Britain players were caught on camera doing ball altering while Rahane and Pujara were batting in the 34th over of day 4. Ollie Robinson was balling the over.
Britain player Mark Wood was seen altering the ball with spikes of his shoes. This grabbed the attention of fans and is moving via web-based media. Indian fans on Twitter ask BCCI, ICC, and ECB if this sort of altering is permitted in cricket?
Already we had witnessed a ball tampering moment which has been very harsh to Australian Players and re-exaggerating the same would definitely lead the ICC to comment on this matter. Now it’s up to them what they are going to do after examining the whole scenario.
It might be a major problem for Mark Wood as if this calls out to be valid then he would be in trouble. After spectating this visual, many of the fans are starting to put their opinions over the view in the social media platform. Wood has been highly criticised over what has happened.
Right now after losing successive wickets of top-3 batsmen, now all responsibility has been on Cheteshwar Pujara and Ajinkya Rahane and they have to quickly score runs to put some decent total to put hosts on chase.
It was Joe Root’s commendable performance which has led England into a much better side against Strong Indian side. Now the whole story will depend on the visitors on how many runs they will put on the scoreboard.
