England’s day to remember…India’s day to forget, being bowled out for 78 after electing to bat first. The biggest chink in their armor – the batting – also excelled as openers Burns and Hameed put on 120 on Day 1. India will need something special to stop ENG from leveling the series.
Meanwhile, new signings continued in the Indian T20 league as the top-ranked T20 spinner in the world, Tabraiz Shamsi joined the Rajasthan team.
