India vs England 1st Test Day 2 Live Score
INDIA: Over: 125 II Score: 414/5(1st innings)
India have lost Yuvraj immediately after lunch.
Yuvraj is gone. Mistimes a full toss from Samit Patel high in the air and straight into the hands of Swann. Yuvraj is gone for 74 runs. Captain Dhoni comes to the crease.
At Lunch India were 410 for the loss of 4 wickets with Pujara batting on 133* and Yuvraj on 72*. India will feel content that they did not lose any wickets in the first session of the 2nd day although they did not match up to the rate at which runs were scored yesterday. The highlight of the innings was Pujara who scored his second career century. Yuvraj Singh also got to his half century which included some powerful shots.
England bowlers toiled hard and appealed even harder but with no success. Swann caused a few problems initially for both batsmen but was unable to take wickets. Anderson also bowled well in patches but could not keep up the pressure on the Indian batsmen.
INDIA: Over: 121 II Score: 410/4(1st innings)
INDIA: Over: 110 II Score: 382/4(1st innings)
Anderson and Samit Patel bowling well in tandem.
Yuvraj and Pujara have denied England early wickets although they have not scored at a brisk pace.
Pujara: 123*, Pujara: 54*
Yuvraj gets to his fifty. Heaves Samit Patel’s delivery wide of deep mid wicket for a boundary.
INDIA: Over: 106 II Score: 367/4(1st innings)
Runs have been hard to come by for India. England are bowling well.
Indian batsmen survived a few scares.
Pujara and Yuvraj have shown good application.
Pujara:115*, Yuvraj: 47*
INDIA: Over: 100 II Score: 360/4(1st innings)
Broad trying the short one on Yuvraj. The pitch is too slow for the short ball to be effective though. Yuvraj pulls one to the deep mid wicket fence.
Pujara has been offering his pads to a few deliveries. There have been a few huge appeals against him.
Pujara: 113*, Yuvraj: 42*
INDIA: Over: 95 II Score: 345/4(1st innings)
Fifteen runs off the last over from Swann. Pujara hit him for a boundary to get to his century and then Yuvraj smashed him for a six and a four.
Pujara: 105*, Yuvraj: 35*
Cheteswar Pujara has scored a century. This has been a fantastic knock from him.
Ahmedabad: India finished Day 1 at 323 for the loss of 4 wickets. They would be satisfied with the overall performance. Pujara (98*) and Yuvraj (24*) are the overnight batsmen and they would ideally look to bat for two more sessions so that they put up a big first innings total.
England on the other hand would be looking to pick up a few quick wickets. The second new ball is still just 3 overs old so they would be looking to make full use of it and trouble the Indian batsmen. Swann will again be their main bowler and England`s fortunes will depend to a large extent on how the champion spinner performs.
