On Sunday, Mark Wood and Moeen Ali of team England struck late on against India at Lord’s to leave the second test heading towards an interesting fifth and final day. The visitors were 181-6 in their second innings, after bad light forcing an early close. Cheteshwar Pujara (45) and Ajinkya Rahane (61), both of whom had previously struggled for runs this series, checked England’s progress albeit it took them 59 overs to add exactly 100 for the fourth wicket. But from 155-3, India then lost three wickets for 20 runs.
To everyone’s surprise, Sam Curran captured the wicket on Indian captain’s wicket after Mark Wood dismissing both the openers of team India. The Left arm seamer denied Kohli’s wicket by an umpire’s call lbw ruling, still got him for 20 when he had the star batsman caught behind. Users of Twitter has been involved in verbal spat as soon as a CSK fan page lauded Sam Curran for dismissing Kohli.
