Shardul Thakur played a splendid thump of 60 runs from 72 balls. He had hit 7 fours and one six in the 2nd innings of the match. India has scored a total of humongous 466 runs on the board in the Oval Test.
The second inning was so controlled by the visitors that almost each player scored a good total which eventually gave them this huge total. All we can say is a splendid innings.
Now the hosts have to play really good cricket from now on as they have to score 368 runs to win with a total of 126 overs in hand and the visitors have just to take 10 wickets and take a lead of 2-1 from here.
Shardul Thakur has been thinking of this test for his batting. He has been splendid in the first innings and presently again in the second innings.
The Indian quick bowler scored fast 60 runs and scored a splendid six on Robinson’s ball. Virat Kohli is seen glad and praising the six by Shardul Thakur.
The reaction from Virat Kohli has been highly praised by the fans in the social media platform and the kind of joy we have witnessed on the face of the skipper was the happiest moment. In the previous test he was a bit frustrated after that big loss but somewhere the Indian team has bounced-back from that situation.
It was a combined effort from the squad members from the start of the point either it be the maiden overseas century by Rohit Sharma, half century from Mr. Dependable Cheteshwar Pujara, valuable partnership from Kohli-Jadeja, core partnership and half centuries from Rishabh Pant and Shardul Thakur or the tail enders contribution. This is a huge comeback from the visitors.
Now let’s see what hosts are going to do. Will they chase down the target or will the Indian team conquer this Oval Test!
