Vishakhapatnam, 17-21 Nov 2016


Day 1: After winning the toss in the morning Kohali elected to bat first. But India not got the start what they were looking for as India lost its first for just 22 runs.  Now it was turn for the middle order to take the Indian innings to a dependable total. It was again captain who set the example in front of team and he played the brilliant knock of 151* runs and still on the crease. He was well supported by the Pujara on the other hand as Pujara also hit the ton and got out on the score of 119 before that they both put on the partnership of 226-runs. Then Rehana also got out soon just adding 23 runs. It was only the Anderson who was able to take 3 wickets. England will hope to come back fresh tomorrow morning and comeback in the match with a good spell of wickets by his bowlers as the wicket will start to deteriorate sooner or later. India will want to make sure that they bat more so that they can add huge score on the board in 1st innings. Good news for India is that the Virat Kohali is still on the crease keeping hopes of India live.
