Ind v Eng highlights today – fifth test day two from Kennington Oval, London (England) Saturday 8th September 2018. JE Root won the toss and decided to bat first, England scored 198 runs in day one’s play with seven wickets down. The opener of the team AN Cook played very good innings with scoring 71 runs off 190 deliveries. When his wicket dismissed then it was (63.2 there will be no hundred for Cook unless he gets it in the third innings. There is a disappointed sigh at The Oval but then the crowd rises for Cook as he goes off after playing one on for 71. This is on a length, just outside off, possible with the switched seam position to send it back in. Cook is surprised by the movement back in, and gets the inside edge as he looks to defend 133/2).
KK Jennings contributed 23 runs, MM Ali scored his fifty and out when it was (82.3 edged, gone, Moeen snicks one at last! A carbon-copy of pretty much any one of the 30-40-odd plays-and-misses that he has totted up in his innings. Lifting off the deck, arrow-straight line on off stump, and demanding a stroke. The end of a diligent, self-denying knock. And India’s hard-working day of toil gets better! 177/6). JE Root (c) gone with duck same as JM Bairstow † and SM Curran, BA Stokes scored 11 runs. JC Buttler 11 not out, AU Rashid 4 not out. I Sharma took three wickets, JJ Bumrah took two same as RA Jadeja who also took two wickets.
