Pakistan cricketer Kamran Akmal is all praise for the Indian team for their performance on day three against England in the third Test match at Headingley, Leeds. After being on the field for over 130 overs and trailing in the first innings by 354 runs, India fought back brilliantly in their second innings.

At the end of day three, the visitors are 215 for two down, trailing by 139 runs. Rohit Sharma contributed 59 runs opening the innings. Cheteshwar Pujara (91*) and skipper Virat Kohli (45*) are unbeaten at the crease.

In a video on Youtube, Kamran Akmal lauded the Indian batsmen. He added that the partnership between Pujara and Rohit was excellent, and India can go past England’s total. Kamran Akmal said,

“Team India started just the way they should have in the second innings. KL Rahul got out for 8 but the partnership of 80-plus between Pujara and Rohit Sharma was excellent. England bowlers also had to work hard because of the nature of the pitch. Team India have the batting line-up to drag the Test match longer. They can definitely go past England’s total. If they do that, it will be a measure of the confidence they have in their ability.”

Cheteshwar Pujara’s batting was the best act of the day: Kamran Akmal

Kamran Akmal further said that Cheteshwar Pujara handled the pressure well and was batting in good flow. His knock was the best act of the day, he added. Kamran stated that India has a chance to save this test match from here. He said,

“Rohit played a brilliant knock but Pujara’s batting was the best act of the day. When he stays at the wicket, he can kill time and keep the scoreboard ticking. Of course, no one expected him to score at the pace that he did. He was in a very good flow. Earlier, he was getting out in a tentative fashion. Pujara handled the pressure very well and helped Team India to a decent position. His partnerships with both Rohit and Kohli were wonderful ones. India performed on par with the kind of batting they possess.”

“Team India now have a chance to save this Test. This is how a great team makes a comeback. Team India needed this kind of an effort to prove to themselves that they are indeed a great side,” Kamran Akmal concluded.
