IND VS ENG: Rohit Sharma hits half-century in Lord’s Test, Virat Kohli never crosses 25 runs!

New Delhi. The work that was not done in Nottingham was finally done by Rohit Sharma on the historic ground of Lord’s (India vs England, 2nd Test). In the first innings of the Lord’s Test, Rohit Sharma scored a brilliant half-century, he completed his half-century in just 83 balls. Let us tell you that in the first innings of the Nottingham Test, Rohit Sharma was dismissed after scoring 36 runs in 107 balls. He had lost his wicket after settling at the crease, but at Lord’s, Rohit Sharma not only did not freeze, but he also scored his first half-century on England soil.

The performance of the legendary batsmen of Team India on the historic ground of Lord’s has been very poor. Virat Kohli, who scored 27 Test centuries, has always proved to be a flop at Lord’s. Virat Kohli’s best score at Lord’s is just 25. But Rohit Sharma on Thursday showed how to bat on the Lord’s pitch.

Rohit’s power was shown at Lord’s
Like Nottingham, Rohit Sharma made a simple start at Lord’s as well. He respected the swinging balls of Anderson and Olly Robinson. He released the balls going outside the off-stump. But he played amazing shots on weak balls. He specifically targeted Sam Karen. Rohit Sharma expressed his intentions by hitting four fours in the same over of Karen and completed his first and 13th half-century of Test career in England in a spectacular manner. Rohit shared a half-century partnership with KL Rahul in the second consecutive Test. This partnership is also special because for the first time since 1952 at Lord’s, an Indian opening pair has added more than 50 runs.

Indian star batsmen fail at Lord’s
Let us tell you that batsmen like Captain Virat Kohli, Cheteshwar Pujara have proved to be a flop at Lord’s. Virat Kohli has scored only 65 runs in 4 innings played at Lord’s. Cheteshwar Pujara has scored only 89 runs in 4 innings played at Lord’s.
