LondonIndia scored 364 runs in their first innings on the second day of the second Test against England here on Friday. The highlight of the Indian innings was opener KL Rahul’s century. He scored 129 runs in 250 balls which included 12 fours and a six. Apart from him, Rohit Sharma contributed 83, captain Virat Kohli 42, Ravindra Jadeja 40 and Rishabh Pant contributed 37 runs. Six Indian batsmen did not reach double digits. For England, star fast bowler James Anderson took five wickets for 62 runs. Apart from them, Ollie Robinson and Mark Wood took two wickets each and Moeen Ali took one wicket. Earlier this morning, India started playing 276 for three with Rahul 127 and Ajinkya Rahane leading the innings by one run. Rahul could not last long and was soon dismissed. After this Rahane also lost his wicket recently. He scored one run in 23 balls. However, Rishabh Pant and Jadeja then took over the Indian innings and the two batsmen shared a 49-run stand for the sixth wicket. But Pant became a victim of Wood and was dismissed for 37 runs in 58 balls with the help of five fours. Mohammed Shami, who came out as a new batsman soon after Pant’s dismissal, was dismissed as the seventh batsman without opening an account. The Indian innings collapsed after the lunch break and Anderson took the wickets of Ishant Sharma (8) and Jasprit Bumrah (0) while Wood dismissed Ravindra Jadeja to wrap up the Indian innings. Jadeja scored 40 runs in 120 balls with the help of three fours.
