After the highs of the Lord’s Test, India wre depleated in the first innings of the Headingley Test. James Anderson started a slide as the other England bowlers conjugated to bowl India out for 78. This was also the first time Virat Kohli won the toss and chose to bat. Despite good batting conditions, it was the England bowlers who grasped the advantage with both hands.
India lost a wicket in the very first over that of KL Rahul for a duck. Cheteshwar Pujara (1), Virat Kohli (7) both fell in the first hour of play. The veteran pacer set up the dismissals of Kohli and Pujara just as he did right throughout the series. Ajinkya Rahane (18) and partcuparly Rohit Sharma’s wicket (19) started the slide in the second session.
India lost four wickets on the score of 67 including that of Rohit, Mohammed Shami, Jasprit Bumrah and Ravindra Jadeja. Curran and Robinson and Overton joined later after the slide was started by the veteran Anderson. Between 6.59 pm to 7.10 pm IST, India lost those four wickets to put England on top in the Test match.
Mohammed Siraj’s wicket by Overton with India on 78, ended the misery as India registered one of their lowest total against England in Test cricket in the country.
