India vs England Test 4: Pujara’s Knock Help India Settle For 273 Runs And Lead By 27 Runs

In India, at 3:30 PM, all the eyes in the country currently watch the thrilling fourth test match between India and England at Rose Bowl, Southampton.

During England’s first innings, Captain Kohli grabbed the catch of opener Elster Cook on the ball of Hardik Pandya, and then caught England’s wicket-keeper Jos Buttler with a double century (200 catches) in international cricket after catching Mohammad Shami’s ball.

The 29-year-old Kohli has taken 101 catches in 211 one-day internationals, 32 catches in 62 T20 Internationals and 67 catches in 69 Tests.

Yesterday, Pujara’s footwork against spin, always a feature of his game in home conditions, came to the fore in the first innings of an overseas Test, and it helped India. As he settled down, the batsman looked comfortable against the pacers and ensured there was no hiccup from at least one end.

In what turned out to be another eventful day of Test cricket, India slumped from 161 for four to 195 for eight in the final session of play, with veteran off-spinner Moeen Ali doing the bulk of the damage.

Kohli and Pujara added 92 runs for the third wicket after Shikhar Dhawan (23) and Lokesh Rahul (19) were dismissed cheaply by Stuart Broad (2/50).

Kohli’s 71-ball knock had six boundaries. India currently lead with 27 runs.

In the five test series between India and England, India is trailing 1-2 to England and so Kohli’s team is determined to win the current test match. England won the first two test and India won the recent test 3 with a good margin. England was completely stunned in the first innings of test 4 and India has now scored 273 runs yesterday.
