The fifth rescheduled Test between India and England has taken an interesting turn. While the visitors looked in firm control for the first half of the match, Ben Stokes-led England have gained an upper hand in the second innings. In the chase of 378, England are 259/3 after the end of Day 4’s play.
The current batting pair of Joe Root and Jonny Bairstow have kept India devoid of wickets and have already added 150 runs for the fourth wicket. While Root is batting on 76*, Bairstow stands still at 72*. The two batters played some glorious shots in the middle. But India also did not bowl enough good spells, according to the fans.
After Bairstow and Root kept India at bay in the third session, Twitter fans started criticizing Indian bowlers and said there were not enough good balls bowled. “England is batting good but bowlers are not bowling enough good spells and line & lengths to English batters. Bazzball is just fluke,” wrote one user.
