The day began with England on the back foot after a solid start by the Indian bowlers on Day 1. However, the English batsmen showed determination and grit as they fought to stabilize their innings. Led by opener Zak Crawley’s impressive knock of 76 runs off 78 balls, which included 11 boundaries and 2 sixes, England managed to weather the storm early on.

Crawley’s partnership with Ben Duckett, who contributed a quickfire 21 runs off 17 deliveries, provided England with the momentum they needed to counter the Indian bowling attack. However, Kuldeep Yadav managed to break the partnership by dismissing Duckett, but not before the Englishman had made a valuable contribution to the innings.

The middle order then stepped up, with Ollie Pope and skipper Joe Root looking to build a solid foundation. Despite facing some testing spells from the Indian bowlers, Pope managed to notch up 23 runs off 55 balls before falling victim to Jasprit Bumrah’s fiery pace. Root, on the other hand, could only muster 5 runs before being caught by Shubman Gill off Bumrah’s bowling.

However, England’s resilience was evident as Jonny Bairstow and Ben Stokes steadied the ship with a partnership that saw them take England past the 150-run mark. Bairstow’s unbeaten 24 and Stokes’ gritty 5 not out ensured that England reached tea with four wickets down, looking to build on their total in the final session of the day.

The Indian bowlers, led by Bumrah and Kuldeep, posed a constant threat to the English batsmen throughout the session. Bumrah, in particular, was impressive with figures of 2 wickets for 27 runs from his 8 overs, while Kuldeep Yadav chipped in with a crucial wicket as well.

Looking ahead, England will be aiming to capitalize on the platform set by their top order and build a substantial total to put pressure on the Indian team. With Bairstow and Stokes at the crease, along with the likes of Ben Foakes and the lower order yet to come, England will be hoping to make further inroads into India’s lead in the remaining overs of the day.
