The first Test between India and Sri Lanka is now in its second day. Team India scored 468 runs for the loss of seven wickets in 112 overs on the second day. At the crease, Ravindra Jadeja has 102 runs and R Jayant Yadav has 2 runs.
While batting brilliantly, Jadeja completed his second century of his Test career in 160 balls. In first-class cricket, this is his 11th century. Sir Jadeja had previously scored an unbeaten century against the West Indies in 2018. Both of Jadeja’s centuries came while batting at No. 1 in Test cricket. Jadeja marked the occasion by wielding a sword in his own distinctive style. Outside his sight-seeing boundary line, Mohammad Siraj was also seen wielding a sword.
Ashwin puts in a strong performance.
Ravichandran Ashwin, who batted at number eight, was outstanding. In just 67 balls, the star all-rounder completed his 12th half-century of his career. He returned to the pavilion after bowling a 61-run innings. Suranga Lakmak was the recipient of Ashwin’s wicket.
Ashwin’s half-century (61), his 11th in Test cricket, was his third against Sri Lanka.
His best score against Sri Lanka was Ashwin (61).
For the 7th wicket, Jadeja and Ashwin added 130 runs in 174 balls.
For the first time, Jadeja and Ashwin batted together and put on a century stand.
Jadeja-Ashwin (Jadeja-Ashwin) (130) This is India’s highest seventh-wicket partnership against Sri Lanka.
India set a new record.
Only four times in the history of Test cricket have the team’s top eight batsmen scored 25 or more runs in a single innings. It’s worth noting that India did the same thing against England in 2007.
Before the start of the second day’s play, both India and Sri Lanka observed a minute’s silence to pay tribute to Rod Marsh and Shane Warne. In addition, both teams’ players have black bands on their hands as they enter the field.
Kumara bowled 10.5 overs and took 1 wicket for 52 runs on the first day of the Mohali Test.
Lahiru Kumara was hurt.
In the Mohali Test, the Sri Lankan team has struggled. Due to injury, fast bowler Lahiru Kumara will not be seen bowling in this Test match. Lahiru was forced to leave the field after suffering a hamstring injury on the first day of the Test match. On the second day, he was expected to be seen bowling for the team. However, it is now believed that he will need two weeks to recover from his hamstring injury before bowling again in the Mohali Test.
Jadeja must demonstrate his strength.
On the first day, India’s Rishabh Pant scored 96 runs in just 97 balls. The Indian team’s batting will be handled by Jadeja and Ashwin on the second day. These days, Jadeja is in fantastic batting form. Simultaneously, the Sri Lankan team wants to go all-out against Team India as soon as possible.
India has a strong team.
Sri Lanka will have a lot of trouble if Team India can even score 450 runs in the first innings. With bowlers like Jadeja, Bumrah, and Ashwin on Team India’s side, the Sri Lankan team will find it difficult to overcome them.
