Watch Ind v Eng first test day five (final day) full HD highlights today from Saurashtra Cricket Association Stadium, Rajkot (India), Sunday 13th November 2016. As I said in yesterday’s post this pitch will not change his behavior because there is a lot of grass on it but some dry spots also appear there. Those are not dangerous because their placements are not quite a good position for both bowlers fast/spin.
Now today is the last day of the play and both teams have complete second innings remaining. Till the end of the day, 4 England lead by 163 runs with 10 wickets remaining and I don’t think they will declare their innings (if they will not out, all team) because this will not give them any benefit.
Toss: England & chose bat.
R Ashwin scored 70 runs off 139 balls and out, V Kohli hit wicket at 40 bowls by Rashid, WP Saha† contributed 35 runs. AU Rashid took four wickets in 31 overs with 114 runs, ZS Ansari took two and MM Ali also took two wickets. H Hameed new youngster on his Test debut scored 62 runs in his second innings and still not out, AN Cook captain of England team played very well with scoring 46 runs not out.
