Former India captain Virat Kohli has returned to form ahead of the Test match against England starting on July 1. Virat scored 67 runs on the third day of the practice match against Listershire. Apart from him, Ravindra Jadeja (56 runs) also scored a half-century. India scored 364 runs at stumps for the loss of 9 wickets. India had a lead of 2 runs in the first innings. In this way, the total lead of Team India has become 366 runs.
The unique thing about this match so far was that Cheteshwar Pujara batted for both the teams. At the same time, Jadeja and Shreyas Iyer came out to bat again despite being dismissed once in India’s second innings.
How Pujara played for both the teams, how Jadeja-Iyer batted twice
The rules are not strict in practice matches. The purpose of such matches is to give the players as much practice as possible. So Pujara got a chance to bat for both the teams and Ravindra Jadeja and Shreyas Iyer came out to bat again despite getting out.
Not only this, 7 Indian players including Pujara and Rishabh Pant are present in Lister’s team of 15 members. There is no compulsion to play 11 fixed players in these matches. The only condition is that not more than 11 batsmen come in an innings.
4 wickets fell for 118 runs
In the second innings, the Indian team had lost four wickets for 118 runs at one time. KS Bharat 43, Shubman Gill 38 and Hanuma Vihari, who scored half-centuries in the first innings, were dismissed for 20 runs. Ravindra Jadeja could not even open the account. Shreyas Iyer scored 30 runs. After this Virat took over the Indian innings.
