IND vs ENG | Was important to stay along with the team when it’s playing well, says Kuldeep Yadav

Hunter Miska ถอนหายใจอย่างสิ้นหวังและจับเป้าหมายของ Jeff Carter



Kuldeep Yadav has stated that he was happy being a part of the side when the team was performing well but admitted that there was some pressure not playing a Test for two years. Kuldeep further added that the team wasn’t worried after losing the first Test as they knew they could comeback.India registered a comprehensive victory against England in Chennai to square the series going to the Ahmedabad leg of the series, but this became even sweeter for Kuldeep Yadav, who picked up a couple of wickets late in the innings. In the entire Test, Kuldeep bowled only 12.5 overs and majorly acted as a holding bowler to Ravichandran Ashwin and Axar Patel.However, Kuldeep doesn’t have any regrets and stated that it is important for him to stay along with the team when it’s playing well and he believed his time would come. In the meantime, he was discussing the technicalities with Ravichandran Ashwin and how he could better himself as a red-ball bowler.”It was important to stay along with the team when it’s playing well. My job was to keep control, contain runs from one end, and chip in as one of the three spinners on this track. We have been planning for this series for a long time, right from the Australia series. There was some pressure (on himself), having not played a lot of Tests in the last two years. Was discussing a lot with Ashwin regarding bowling in the right areas and putting the pressure on the batsmen,” Kuldeep said in the post-match presentation.India have been an unstoppable force at home in the last one decade with only one loss in their previous 36 games before the juggernaut stopped in Chennai by England. It must have been an eye-opener but Kuldeep revealed that the side was not lost on confidence after the opening game as they believed they could bounce back.”We weren’t worried (on losing the first Test), we have been in such situations before, in my first series (in 2017), we had lost the first Test against Australia in Pune. We’re relaxed, we knew we had the team to come back and perform. Everyone was just focused on doing well in this Test,” Kuldeep added.Follow us on Facebook hereStay connected with us on Twitter hereLike and share our Instagram page here .

IND vs ENG | Chepauk Day 4 Talking Points: Dan Lawrence’s harakiri and Virat Kohli’s proactive day out

Hunter Miska ถอนหายใจอย่างสิ้นหวังและจับเป้าหมายของ Jeff Carter



On a day that was about to get tough for England, Dan Lawrence didn’t do himself any help with his ‘harakiri’ to send Ravichandran Ashwin out of the ground. After that, it was just a case of formality for the rest of the day, as the Indian spinners wrapped the English batsmen by their spell.Dan Lawrence’s harakiri could cost himAfter what was considered a brilliant first tour in Sri Lanka for the young right-hander Daniel Lawrence, his task was cut out against the top-notch Indian bowling attack. His uncanny batting ability, combined with his footwork had the entire world talking, after his first knock at Galle, where he scored a scintillating 73. He then took the attack on once again, with an unbeaten 21 in the second innings. However, from thereon, he has succumbed under pressure, multiple times, all of which could be put down to his inexperience. In the first Test, he was undone twice by the seaming delivery – from Bumrah and Ishant Sharma. However, in the second Test, there was a different tale – one where his inexperience had taken precedence over his skills. After battling it out in the heat, against the spin duo of Ravichandran Ashwin and Axar Patel, the right-handed jumped at delivery before poking it tamely to the short-leg fielder just before lunch bells came calling. While his dismissal might have been put down to extra bounce, his inexperience came into the picture, with his ability to not see through the tough session. Combine that with his second innings dismissal, where his dismissal was more because of him than the bowler.Lawrence, in a brain-fade moment, jumped down the pitch, aiming to take down Ashwin ended up getting himself humiliated and stumped by a brilliant piece of keeping from Rishabh Pant. Talent might only last as long as Lawrence converts and now with Bairstow and Crawley returning, who knows what might happen?Virat Kohli has been proactive, more than you would expect and more than you would think. Right from the first over of the day, where he handed the ball to Mohammed Siraj, Kohli has rotated and kept his bowlers fresh throughout the first session of the day. Be it Siraj bowling or Axar Patel accompanying him from the other end, Kohli was spot on with his tactics. The way he went about things, changing his bowlers, bringing them on from the end which would allow for them to flourish, Kohli had been immaculate on the fourth day. When Ben Stokes was looking more and more confident against the set of bowlers, he introduced Ravichandran Ashwin into the attack and set an ultra-attacking field, to see the downfall of the southpaw. As much as five fielders were within touching distance from the batsman, with constant chirping from the slip-cordon, who were assured that Ashwin would get his man yet again. He did, that was not just to Ashwin and his amazing 101 variations with the ball but also the constant decision-making from the Indian skipper. What was more effective was how he brought on Ishant Sharma just after that, knowing there were two right-handed batsmen at the crease. With Ishant’s ability to get the ball tail in back to the right-hander, his over against Pope and Root was a testament to his proactiveness, with three fielders on the leg-side, guarding the uppish drive, which was one of the percentage shot for the batsmen with the ball tailing. Later on, his change to bring Axar Patel back into the attack accounted for Ollie Pope. Incidentally, with this win, he also tied MS Dhoni’s record at the top of the proceedings, with wins at home. Axar Patel has India covered but the litmus test is yet to comeWhen Axar Patel was unavailable for the first Test, with an injury, India had to change their entire game plan around – with the selection of Shahbaz Nadeem and Washington Sundar, to fill the gap left by the all-rounder. However, his return saw an aggressive India take the field, with Kuldeep coming back into the setup, with the left-arm all-rounder. He was at his best, with his ball often putting the English batsmen in a mind-block. They couldn’t quite fathom what he was doing, whether he was spinning the ball away from them or bringing it back in or just keeping it straight. If India have always marvelled at Ravindra Jadeja for his ability to puzzle the batsmen and entertain the fans, Axar Patel was living up to the expectations, that doesn’t mean he should be compared to Jadeja. His effectiveness in the second innings, well reflected by his statistics on the domestic scene – an average of 23.6. Earlier on the second day of the Test as well, Axar drew a 26% false shot from the English batsmen. In all, the way he is operating, India wouldn’t fret over their decision to have him in the Test setup, with his bowling performance, where he picked up a fifer. But invariably, his biggest Test – the litmus one – is around the corner, in conditions where there isn’t as much turn for the spinners. Come to the Ahmedabad Test, it would be one of Axar’s toughest tests but would he come out of it rather successfully? And the fact that he hasn’t yet stepped up with the bat, would come haunting for him on pitches that don’t favour spin-bowlers.Follow us on Facebook hereStay connected with us on Twitter hereLike and share our Instagram page here .

Twitter reacts to Rishabh ‘Spiderman’ Pant’s brilliant stumping to send back Lawrence

Hunter Miska ถอนหายใจอย่างสิ้นหวังและจับเป้าหมายของ Jeff Carter



After humming to the tune of Desi Spiderman, Rishabh Pant was at his vigilant duty in Spiderman’s costume, with a brilliant stumping, right after his advice to Ravichandran Ashwin. Being blinded by Dan Lawrence’s brain-faded charge, the wicketkeeper unsighted completed a brilliant stumping.Since the first Test, against England, Rishabh Pant has been brilliant behind the sticks, with his impressive athleticism. In the first innings of the second Test, the wicketkeeper plucked two of the best catches in the Test, both times diving to his left. That even led to Ravichandran Ashwin praising the left-hander for his brilliance behind the stumps. While he was dismissed and undone by the brilliance of Ben Foakes, behind the sticks, it had inspired the wicketkeeper batsman. On the third day, it was the spinners, who ran riot picking up wickets, there was one opportunity where he fumbled a catch off Ashwin’s bowling. However, on day four, none of it mattered, as the wicketkeeper was called to duty early in the morning. Just before Ashwin’s spell to Dan Lawrence, the wicketkeeper charged his way to the bowler, seemingly talking about a plan to dismiss the English batsman. In the span of two deliveries, the off-spinner bowled an excellent delivery that drifted and stayed straight, going in between the English batsman’s legs, to leave Pant in a spot of dire. Despite being blinded, the wicketkeeper’s exquisite footwork ensured that the right-handed batsman walked back to the dressing room. Not the best wicketkeeper in the country? A difference of opinion now?Here is how Twitter reacted:

IND vs ENG | Shubman Gill to undergo precautionary scan, won’t take field today

Hunter Miska ถอนหายใจอย่างสิ้นหวังและจับเป้าหมายของ Jeff Carter



India’s promising opener Shubman Gill, like Cheteshwar Pujara, has an injury scare, after he got hit on his arm while fielding and will be undergoing a precautionary scan. As a result of this, the right-hander will not be able to take field today as India try to level the Test series at the Chepauk.Indian cricket and injuries have become synonymous with each other since the tour Down Under. India had seen numerous injuries in Australia and had to play a depleted side with many players missing. And in the ongoing Test, there have been two injury scares. After Cheteshwar Pujara couldn’t take the field on day three of the ongoing Chennai Test after getting hit whilst batting, Shubman Gill won’t be fielding today. The young Indian opener had sustained a blow to his left forearm when he was fielding on day three of the Test. As a result of this, he will also be undergoing precautionary scan and is being currently assessed, stated BCCI, reported ANI. Only later, the extent of the injury will be known if there is anything major. In case, the Punjab opener fails to regain full fitness in time for the next Test, then Mayank Agarwal, who was dropped and replaced by Gill in Australia as an opener, may well return to the team’s XI.

IND vs ENG | Love to credit Vikram Rathour for improved batting displays, praises Ravichandran Ashwin 

Hunter Miska ถอนหายใจอย่างสิ้นหวังและจับเป้าหมายของ Jeff Carter



Indian offie Ravichandran Ashwin has credited India’s batting coach Vikram Rathour for his improved batting in the last four-five Test matches. He also admitted that it was great to see how Mohammed Siraj reacted when Ashwin got to his hundred and also thanked the crowd for their support.Ravichandran Ashwin has been on a spree of changing perceptions around him since the Australia Tests. He had a fantastic series Down Under as he bowled brilliantly and took important wickets throughout. Then he showed redemption with the bat at the SCG when he helped draw the Test with Hanuma Vihari and now with the Chennai Test, he has proved that not only he can bide time but also score big, which has been missing with his batting in the last few years. On day three of the ongoing Test, he made a memorable century as it came on a wicket turning square when most of the main batsmen also struggled to get going barring Virat Kohli. Ashwin credited the batting coach for his improved batting displays in the last few Tests. He had batted with Siraj to get to his hundred, farming the strike well and helping Siraj from the other end. He admitted that he had an idea of how to bat with the No.11 given his past experience with Ishant Sharma.”I can’t say it’s been happening in the last three days, I have been practising with Vikram Rathour. I would love to credit him with how my batting has come through over the last four-five matches. I don’t know when the next Test is going to be here, but I am pleased. Don’t know if I will play another Test in Chennai, and if at all, when,” Ashwin said, reported TOI. “In the past when he’s (Ishant) been with me when I got hundreds at home and once Siraj came, I knew how to approach.”It was a heartwarming moment for the fans to see how much Siraj celebrated when Ashwin got to his hundred. And the spinner well aware of it admitted that it was thrilling to see Siraj celebrate the way he did.”I was thrilled by his batting and told him to go through the line of the ball. It was amazing to see how excited he was when I got my hundred. I don’t know what the team is feeling like but I am sure they are thrilled. I can’t thank the crowd enough, they have been very supportive,” Ashwin said.One of the hallmarks of Ashwin’s century was how well he swept the spinners be it conventional sweeps or reverse ones. India’s no.8 stated that it was a well-planned assault. “I will sleep well through the night, that is all that I am thinking. Even after the last Test, we spoke about how we are going to counter Leach and probably bring sweep to the game Last time I was sweeping, I was 19 years old, I hit a bit of sweep shots well today. I am thankful the plan has paid off. Sort of had a very good day.”Follow us on Facebook hereStay connected with us on Twitter hereLike and share our Instagram page here .

IND vs ENG | Pitch is turning but only when you hit the right areas, insists Axar Patel

Hunter Miska ถอนหายใจอย่างสิ้นหวังและจับเป้าหมายของ Jeff Carter



Axar Patel, who’s making his Test debut at the Chepauk, reckons that it’s a turning pitch but you have to nail the right areas to get the most out of it. He also added that the team’s confidence was greatly boosted by the partnership between Virat Kohli and Ravichandran Ashwin. 

The venue of the first and second Test might be the same but not the nature of the deck as the pitch has been turning in the ongoing Test as opposed to the series opener, played on a relatively flat wicket. Despite the assistance from the wicket, there has been a lot of difference between the way both the team’s spinners have bowled. While Indian spinners have able to gain maximum out of a helpful track, the same hasn’t been the case with England duo of Moeen Ali and Jack Leach. Especially, Moeen has bowled quite a few full tosses pretty much like Dom Bess and at times both have lacked the penetration as shown by the Indian spinners. Axar Patel, who took two wickets today for India, also suggested the same and stated that one has to bowl in the right areas to reap rewards. “Like the way the wicket is behaving, it’s turning. But it only turns when you bowl the right length, the right pace. If you are a little slow, it doesn’t turn a lot. So if you hit the right pace and line, it becomes tough for them to bat. It becomes important for the bowlers to bowl the right pace,” Axar told reporters in a virtual presser at the end of day three. There have been a lot of talks around the nature of the wicket but the left-arm spinner asserted that players need to adapt just like Indians do on seaming wickets. “Actually if you look at my last dismissal (Root) one, it was down to the umpire, so I can’t say a lot on that. But here on this wicket, I think we played really well, so when we are able to score runs, they shouldn’t have issues. I think they (England) should change the mindset about the wicket because we also play on seaming wickets.”Notably, if not for injury, the Gujarat spinner would have played the first Test too, and he reckons it was frustrating for him to miss out earlier. Once the No.1 ODI bowler in the world, he also said that the wicket has suited his strength as he tries to bowl accurately. “I was about to play in the first Test, it was frustrating for me but I never got irritated by it. I just took some time and worked on my fitness, my physio told me that it was a niggle and it would become alright for the second Test. It was frustrating but if you look at it positively, I could give my 100% here. I have played with Ash a lot, his mindset and his bowling to both left and right-handed batsman. He talks a lot about mindset and how I could trouble the batsman with my bowling.”“The way I bowl, accuracy is my strength, it has worked well for me. It’s just that you have to be accurate, focused and keep bowling the same line and length. The wicket will take care of itself, you just have to keep bowling to your strength,” Axar said.Indian batting got off to shaky start and were at one position, 106 for 6 today but then Kohli and Ashwin combined in a big partnership with the former getting a fifty and the latter making an emphatic century that helped India to 286 runs. Axar remarked that the team’s confidence was boosted by the Kohli-Ash partnership and also how the team doesn’t pay much attention to the outside noise. “I think our team’s confidence was boosted by Ashwin’s knock. We had a lot of soft dismissals, the way Pujara got out. We were a bit nervous but the way Ashwin and Virat played, we had immense confidence and when there are runs on board, you tend to be more confident of your chances.”Follow us on Facebook hereStay connected with us on Twitter hereLike and share our Instagram page here .

With that century, Ravichandran Ashwin surpassed Gary Sobers as the only player behind Ian Botham to score a century and pick five wickets in the same Test. With that, Ashwin has scored his fifth Test century, out of which four of them have come at home, including picking up a fifer in the Test.Brilliant batting performanceHe is a gem

Ben Foakes – the specialist discussion in the age of batsman-wicketkeeper

Hunter Miska ถอนหายใจอย่างสิ้นหวังและจับเป้าหมายของ Jeff Carter



When the ball whizzed past Rishabh Pant, turning sharply past his inside edge, the ball rifled past the leg-stump only to find an equally alert Ben Foakes waiting by the millisecond to affect the stumping. Now imagine this on a third-day track where the ball has an uneven bounce?That’s the idea of having a wicketkeeper-batsman, a specialist wicketkeeper in the age and discussion of other wicketkeepers. In the age and day where wicketkeepers like Rishabh Pant and Jos Buttler – have thrived and succeeded in the role but, they have always had a comparison with the best keepers in the country. Thus walks Wriddhiman Saha and Ben Foakes into the debate, with the question that always surrounds them being, are they capable enough with the bat. But on the first day, it was evident what a specialist keeper has to offer when Foakes was flying his gloves consistently from one end of the stump to another, from the leg-pole to the first slip. He was consistently blinded by the presence of the batsmen but it didn’t faze him out, he remained at his own nonchalant self behind the sticks, swaying to the tunes of Chepauk. The razzle-dazzle around Foakes would have suggested that the wicketkeeper was perhaps making his debut but he wasn’t, hell it wasn’t even his first stint as a wicketkeeper in the sub-continent, not even India, for that matter of fact. Foakes, having made his debut against Sri Lanka, has shown the entire world how it is to have a specialist wicketkeeper behind the poles. The difference is quite important to know, it is almost the difference between a specialist bowler and an all-rounder, who bowls a lot. It’s that!
Foakes on day three © BCCI
“Not knowing where I stood with England played a part in adding to that mental burnout. It was tough,” Foakes told the Daily Mail, after he was snubbed from the Test squad. The English selectors instead looked at honing Jos Buttler and his skills, deeming it enough to warrant him the No.1 status in the country. Just before the start of the India tour, Foakes had got the knowledge that he was going to replace Jos Buttler, as early as the second Test in India. And the second Test was in Chennai, one of the toughest places for a wicketkeeper. While the seaming and swinging conditions offer trouble, the spinning deliveries require as much or more attention at an even faster pace. The difference between a stumping and a missed opportunity to snap a 100-run partnership could be milliseconds, that’s where the pressure and the importance of a specialist wicketkeeper comes into the picture. Coming into the Test, Foakes had emphasised that he had played just two red-ball games, it didn’t matter though. On the first day, with the ball sharply turning away from Rohit Sharma, Foakes had the minute of opportunities – a sharp chance of getting a well-set batsman back to the hut. He did alright, he did more than alright, disturbed the timber and even was confident that he had sent Rohit back, only for the third-umpire to deny him of the glory. But despite that, he went on, at his best, even plucking deliveries outside the leg-stump on a sharp turning wicket.On the second day, early in the morning, his stumping to dismiss Axar Patel – another sharp piece of work – saw him hit the headline yet again. His stumping was compared to MS Dhoni, one of Chennai’s loved figures and in Chennai, where the heart of the lion is, made it even more special. But could he and would he bat, as good as a specialist batsman?
Ben Foakes has been one of the best overseas keepers in Indian conditions. His right leg opens up when collecting from a left-arm spinner. Off-spinner bowls and his left leg goes slightly back @englandcricket #cricket #IndvEng (1/2)
— Kiran More (@JockMore) February 15, 2021“Every game and opportunity I get, I want to take it and kind of prove what I can do rather than looking too far ahead at what I can try and cement down,” he said before the clash in Chennai. He wasn’t too bothered about dislodging Buttler as the first-choice, he was more bothered about making the best use of his opportunity. “I think every competitor wants to play. So when you go a long period without, it is a challenge. But luckily I get an opportunity now,” luckily he did, he not just got an opportunity but made an immediate impact, not just with the gloves. When he walked in to bat, England were in shambles, at 52/5. Ben Stokes had just walked back to the hut, bowled brilliantly by Ravichandran Ashwin. The pitch was devilish but still had plenty of positives for batsmen who worked hard. Ashwin and Axar were tormenting, the top five had no clue. There was Ollie Pope at the other end, Foakes at the strikers end. The advice that he would have got from the top would have been to sweep the ball but he quite didn’t sweep it first up. That’s where he drew the line between practical and theoretical knowledge. Sweeping on the surface was one of the best options but even that wasn’t guaranteed to give you success. That’s where Foakes, the specialist wicketkeeper and his approach came right. “It was extremely difficult,” Foakes told the host broadcaster, Star Sports, he didn’t mince words, not one bit after his innings. Having seen the ball rise, keep low and snarl across the batsmen in the first innings, Foakes stayed calm, composed. He wasn’t perplexed by not sweeping, not sticking by the plans but more focused on staying in the moment. The Surrey-man knew that patience was key, even before Ravichandran Ashwin specified it in the presser. He had played in Galle before, conditions similar but Chennai-Ashwin and India were always going to be a tougher ask.”I was just trying to play for the ball that wasn’t going to rag, try to play within my limits, and play the ball late, basically – not get too far outside my bubble,” he added.”It’s obviously extremely tough and it’s probably not going to get any easier. Balls are going to spit past us, balls are going to keep low, and so we have to play within our own gameplans, our own limits, and try to put pressure on the bowlers where we can but also back our defence, too.”It almost looked like he was the most experienced of batsmen, he looked assuring, he looked calm and most importantly, solid with his approach against the Indian spinners, who were simply relishing the bite off the pitch. Every run of his weighed in gold but the technique was diamond. He swept only when he grew in confidence and that was evident in the way he went about things. An unbeaten 42, where he ran out of partners, Foakes looked confident, assured and more importantly, looked like England’s best bat.On day three, just to make things better, Foakes got off a run-out to send back Cheteshwar Pujara and it didn’t end there. He later was involved in Rohit’s stumping, a similar one to how he nearly got him out in the first innings. This time around, he was milli-seconds quicker than the first innings attempt. His hands were right on point, his hips flexible enough to grasp that low down or high-up, Foakes was at his brilliant best. So when he inflicted Rohit Sharma’s dismissal, off a sharp stumping opportunity, it was – life coming to a full circle for him, not just as a wicketkeeper but as a cricketer, who was making his Test comeback after two years. The cherry to top it all, his stumping that saw the back of Pant showed that wicketkeeping is an art, a dying other rather in the age of batsman-wicket keeper instead of wicketkeeper-batsman. On his 28th birthday, with the Chennai crowd yelling ‘Happy Birthday’ at the top of their lungs, Foakes’ performance surely resonated with the crowd. Follow us on Facebook hereStay connected with us on Twitter hereLike and share our Instagram page here .

Twitter reacts to umpire handing Kohli a ‘warning’ for stepping on the danger mark

During the first Test, Virat Kohli had walked up to the umpire, asking him about England batters running approach, closer to the danger mark. However, in the second Test, the umpire handed the Indian skipper a warning for stepping on the danger mark during the third day at the Chepauk.

Kohli offering a batting masterclass, but then does this, and then argues with the umpire!? Might as well get some sandpaper out mate 👍 #INDvsENG pic.twitter.com/cUg7XlVK2k

Kohli was not happy with the English players running in the middle of pitch in the first test.And now he’s doing the same thing and crying after the umpire warned him.#INDvENG

Kohli running on the middle of the pitch just to give the England spinners more of a chance. What class act.
