Virat Kohli led team India beat England at Lord’s ground in thriller test match. Team India’s bowlers manged to out English batsman inside 60 overs of last day plays. Some extraordinary performance by team India helped them to lead the series. England seriously need to play good to level the series. Because they are far behind as compare to team India’s batting strength. Except Joe Root, no one impressed so far. They need to score more and score big.
Third test match of the series to be played from today at Headingley, Leeds. Virat Kohli was expecting lot more grass on the middle, team India can bring two spinners instead of four pacers. team India can bring Ravichandran Ashwin back in place of Ishant Sharma if grass on the pitch is less.
Team India will play with the same combinations, says Virat Kohli is pre match press conference.
