KLassy batting on Day 1…On a testing pitch, after being put in to bat by Joe Root and England, India controlled the first day of the Lord’s Test. KL Rahul (127*) and Rohit Sharma (83) propelled India to 276-3. Meanwhile, James Anderson continued to show his class (20-4-52-2) and kept England in the game.
On Day 1 of another Test match, Pakistan were resurrected by Fawad Alam (56) and Faheem Ashraf (44) who helped them to 217. Jason Holder (3-26) and Jayden Seales (3-70), and later Mohammad Abbas (2-0) were the pick of the bowlers.
Matchday always keeps the CricStox market buzzing and Thursday was no exception.
STOX IN FOCUS
Lokesh Rahul: Mr. Purple Patch continued to make merry in England. His stunning Lord’s hundred after the heroics at Trent Bridge meant the CricStox users continued to shower appreciation on Rahul. The stock gained almost 4% in Thursday’s trading session.
Rohit Sharma: After a nervy start, the Hitman looked at his imperious best at Lord’s. He may have missed out on a 100, but that did not stop the stock from gaining strongly on CricStox (up by over 8% on Thursday).
James Anderson: The master craftsman was on a roll on the field and on the CricStox market as well. He troubled the Indian batsmen all day and eventually got the wickets of Rohit and Pujara. Anderson gained over 4% in Thursday’s trading session.
Rishabh Pant: The stylish batsman will be in focus on Friday. Given the fact that he was already trending on the market on Thursday, Friday will be even more interesting as Pant will come out to bat at some point during the day.
