India Managed to save the match but lost in batting (India vs England Rajkot Test Match)
England was just about near to the victory, but team India somehow managed to escaped with a draw.
Hameed, who made his introduction in this Test, followed up his 31 from the primary innings with 82 in the second, the most elevated Test score by an English youngster, beating Jack Crawford’s 74 in Cape Town in 1906.
While Joe Root couldn’t exactly rehash his first innings heroics, where he set the establishment for the 500 or more aggregate with a 180-ball 124, Ben Stokes’ advancement to No 4 demonstrated the guests’ purpose of getting fast keeps running on the load up while giving their bowlers enough time to implement an outcome. Concoct inevitably brought his 30th Test century — his fifth in India, a record in itself —before announcing the innings once he was rejected.
The teams will now travel to Visakhapatnam for the second Test that begins November 17.
