New Delhi. Former Pakistan captain Inzamam-ul-Haq praised the performance of Team India on the first day of the Nottingham Test against England (India vs England Nottingham Test). Inzamam believes that the wicket was good to bat on. Despite this, the Indian bowlers bundled out England for 183 runs in the first innings. It’s really awesome.
Inzamam said on his YouTube channel that the second day of the Nottingham Test is very important for India. If Team India scores 300-350, then the test match will be in favor of India. Players have to take responsibility, and they have big players. I could see the pain of losing the final of the World Test Championship on the faces of the Indian players and the aggression that was not seen in the Indian players in that match was visible here.
Right for India to go with 4 fast bowlers: Inzamam
Even though there is a debate about Ravichandran Ashwin’s decision not to include Ravichandran Ashwin in the playing-11 of this Test and 4 fast bowlers to land. But Inzamam justified this decision of the Indian team management. He said that the way India announced their team by fielding 4 fast bowlers and one all-rounder, it was a positive sign. India has made it clear to the England dressing room that they will play aggressive cricket.
He further said that the body language of Team India has changed since the Australia tour. They play cricket with aggression, it has happened in the last 1-2 years.
On the first day all the 10 wickets were taken by the fast bowlers.
India started the test series against England with a bang. On the very first day of the Test, the Indian bowlers had bundled out England’s first innings for 183. Jasprit Bumrah took 4 and Mohammed Shami took three wickets. At the same time, two and Mohammad Siraj also got one wicket in Shardul Thakur’s account. That is, all the wickets came in the account of fast bowlers. It is clear from this that the decision of the Indian team management to go with four fast bowlers was right.
In response to England, the opening pair of KL Rahul and Rohit Sharma scored 21 runs without losing a wicket on the first day. Now on the second day this pair will have the responsibility of taking this partnership further.
