India’s legendary batsman flopped
On the Chennai pitch which is considered easy to bat, batsmen like Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma and Shubman Gill failed. Ajinkya Rahane also became Ayaram-Gayaram. Rohit Sharma was caught by Jos Buttler on the ball going out of Archer after scoring just 6 runs. Shubman Gill got off to a good start but Archer also took him to the pavilion on a personal score of 29. Virat Kohli became the victim of Dom Bess by scoring 11 runs. Rahane remained at the crease for 6 balls and his innings ended on 1 run. After this, Pant and Pujara shared 118 runs to lift Team India from the crisis. Pant scored 91 and Pujara scored 73 runs. To save the Chennai Test, Team India will have to do their best on the fourth and fifth days, otherwise this match is now visible in the possession of England.
