Former England captain Nasser Hussain has applauded India’s tailenders for putting up a great show in the ongoing Test series. He stated that the Indian lower order has done really well on their batting which showed well on the fourth day of the Oval Test as well.

The Indian top-order scored runs in the second innings of the Oval Test after Rohit Sharma smashed a scintillating hundred and Cheteshwar Pujara played a great knock of 61. Following Virat Kohli’s 44, the lower-order helped the team to post a massive total as well.

Shardul Thakur scored his second half-century in this game while Rishabh Pant also notched up his first half-century in this tour. Later, Jasprit Bumrah (24) and Umesh Yadav (25) also contributed with some crucial runs as India posted 466, setting a 368-run target for England.

In his latest column for Daily Mail, Hussain praised the Indian tailenders for adding 150 runs to the scoreboard which helped them set a challenging target for England to chase down as well.

“Whenever the India XI has flashed up at the start of a Test this summer, one of the first thoughts has been the length of their tail. But fair play to them. Their lower order have worked on their batting and on Sunday— for the third time in the series — they made an important contribution,” Hussain wrote.

“First there was Lord’s on the last morning, when Mohammed Shami and Jasprit Bumrah put on 89 and took the game away from England. Then, on the first day here, Shardul Thakur helped turn a potential 150 all out into 191, which kept his side in the game.”

“On Sunday, the last four added 150, with Thakur scoring another half- century, and Bumrah and Umesh Yadav again making useful runs. They saw how New Zealand’s lower order outperformed their own during the World Test Championship final in Southampton, and decided to do something about it. I take my hat off to them,” he further added.
