India on the fightback trail…After 2 days of England’s dominance, India fought back with the bat. The experienced campaigners – Rohit, Pujara, and Kohli – made it count under decent batting conditions. India’s under pressure no. 3 stamped his authority with an unbeaten 91.
Meanwhile, Zimbabwe won a thriller against Ireland to take a T20 series lead, courtesy of Regis Chakabva (47 runs) and Ryan Burl (3-22).
The CricStox market was buzzing on Friday.
STOX IN FOCUS
Virat Kohli: It took just a strong start from India’s captain to get going on the CricStox market as well. The stock price was up by more than 7% in Friday’s trading session (Previous close at 144 coins/stock).
Cheteshwar Pujara: Runs finally came Pujara’s way in the 2nd innings at Headingley. The stock price was up by 3.6% on Friday.
James Anderson: Still wicketless in the 2nd innings and with better conditions for bowling expected on Day 4, Anderson will be the man in focus for England (Previous close at 83.35 coins/stock).
