12.15 pm: Robinson meets Rahul
India scored 28 for 0 in 7 overs, then scored 0 for 2 in the next 7, with Ollie Robinson and Chris Woakes getting the ball to swing and being incredibly disciplined at their lengths, too much to know. resisted the temptation. Robinson has met KL Rahul with a nip-backer – who has been a real weakness for him in Test cricket before – who hit him high on the back pad, but DRS upheld the on-field decision.
Robinson has been remarkable for England this summer – it says a lot that he was given the new ball before Woakes this morning – and has also impressed James Anderson, who was writing about their relationship. Wire column this week.
Anderson said, ‘We have the same approach on bowling. “Essentially we like to show off. We both know we have good skills with the ball and on our days we can be a real handful. We like to torment the batsmen. We go for the runs. And we love taking wickets. He has that attacking streak as well, getting into fights with the opposition. It adds something to his game. He is very passionate about playing for England. Key, and Something I have to learn is to control the aggression and make it work to your advantage.
“We play really well on and off the field. We have a genuine interest in the game. He wants to learn and talk about bowling. It’s exactly who I am. Whether in the nets or over dinner At, we just try to chat and learn all the time. It helps when you have that natural understanding, to know what each other’s are doing and what your strengths are.”
11.45 am: Woakes strikes early
Expensive start from James Anderson, who was penalized for overpitching – his first spell saw six ‘full’ balls for 16, including three fours, according to ESPNcricinfo’s ball-by-ball data. were involved. Early indications are that the pitch is very slow and easy-going, with the ball losing its momentum after being pitched.
But Chris Woakes, returning to the Test team after a year through various mishaps – self-isolation, rotation and injury – promptly bounced the ball away from the outside edge of Rohit Sharma. He achieved significant success with one of the shortest balls of the morning, banging it in, nipping it away with some extra bounce, to kiss the shoulder of Rohit’s batting, celebrating with uncanny aggression roaring And before pumping your fist.
11.25am: Nagraj Gollapudi weighs in
Minutes before the Indian team uproar, India’s head coach Ravi Shastri went up to R Ashwin and said a quick, calm word, Nagraj Gollapudi writes. Shastri then placed his hand on Ashwin’s shoulders and patted him and left. From afar you might not have guessed what Shastri said: Was Ashwin playing his first Test of the Pataudi Trophy? Or was said, ‘Sorry’. Ashwin’s body language did not change as he continued to bowl in the side nets. A few minutes later he joined the squad, but not the group of players, who were told they were in and went to practice. Ashwin went back to the side net and continued to bowl at the yellow rubber stumps, occasionally slamming him backwards.
Soon after the toss, Ashwin picked up his tracksuit and started walking back. As he headed towards the dressing room, he would hear Kohli answer Mike Atherton’s question on why India are still not getting a place for India’s best spinner. Will he buy Kohli’s explanation especially about Jadeja being equally powerful against four England left-handers?
While we won’t know the details, even if it is a conversation, it has become difficult for many outsiders to understand that Ashwin is not getting the space. It would not be too far-fetched to think that India has more faith in Jadeja because he has proved to be a more reliable batsman than Rishabh Pant. But Ashwin’s first-class average in England is 814 runs in 32 innings including three half-centuries. This is similar to Jadeja, who has scored 566 runs in 19 innings at an average of 31.44 with five fifties. So Ashwin is clearly no muggle with the bat.
writing in Wire Dinesh Karthik on Thursday said that India should definitely make room for Ashwin who will bring a “new dimension” to India’s gameplan with both the ball and the bat. However, the Indian team management thinks differently.
After the headlining defeat, Kohli explicitly dismissed two spinners from fielding as he felt it would throw off the balance and then India would only play defensively. But Ashwin has shown that he can single-handedly win Tests with the ball. There is no doubt that being a leader and making selections is not easy. Kohli has great faith in the Indian pace attack to take 20 wickets, but without the senior pair of Ishant and Shami, and Ashwin is once again not considered, if the result goes against India, his words and Thoughts may come back to haunt them. in the oval.
10.55 hrs: Early darshan of Pujara
“I thought I was batting well but I was not able to score big runs,” Pujara said. “I have always been confident. I am getting good starts but I wanted a big start which didn’t happen in some matches so it was really good to score some runs.
“We are playing on challenging pitches, no doubt about it. There was enough support for the spinners back home [against England]. Mentally, yes, it is tough when you are not between runs, but you have to be convinced that it is a matter of an innings for the batsman. I always feel that if you get good innings you get good confidence and you can always move from there.
“We talked about it as a batting group. It’s always challenging here. You have to work hard and the margin of error is really small. We didn’t bat well in the last game, but when you’re in the middle of the game, you’ve got to work hard. That’s what you expect when playing overseas. You are always challenged but we are a confident group. We have done well overseas whether it is Australia or South Africa, so there is a lot to play in this team in overseas conditions. Have confidence.”
10.30 am: Not yet Ashwin…
India hinges on a four pace bowler/one spinner balance: Mohammed Shami has a swallow, Ishant Sharma is left out and Ashwin continues to miss. “Stubby,” assesses Warne. “I would have played Ashwin. You don’t just pick a side for the first innings – that will change – and he has five Test hundreds.”
Virat Kohli suggests Ravindra Jadeja is a better match-up – despite having four left-handers in England – his right-arm seamer mainly bowls over the wicket, making rough outside off-stump left-armers . “It’s something we thought was a good match for Jadeja as well, mostly because all our fast bowlers bowl over the wicket,” he said at the toss. “It’s a good spot for left-handers as well. I think match-up wise, it fits our team perfectly – plus he’s giving us balance with the bat as well.” But surely there is room to choose both?
10.10 pm: Ashwin’s time?
