But when she came to bat on the field, she got under pressure, due to which the whole team was all out in this manner. Indian captain Kohli’s decision to bat first also proved to be wrong.
After losing the same toss, England cricket team captain Joe Root was also seen laughing and he said that there is a little moisture in this pitch and I would have preferred to bowl first here.
Proving India’s decision to bat first, England’s team strengthened their grip in this match. By the end of the first day’s play, England’s team has scored 120 runs without losing any wicket and due to this, they have also taken a total lead of 42 runs over India.
In such a situation, when the first day’s play was over, the wicketkeeper-batsman Rishabh Pant was asked about this decision by the Indian captain to bat first, then he appeared in the defense.
He said that whatever we decide, it is taken as a whole team. In such a situation, we do not think much about the toss. Almost everyone here knew that the wicket was very soft in the IND vs ENG Test Series first session.
Along with this, England bowlers bowled in good places. Pant said that on this we needed to present ourselves a little better. We learned a lot from this and now we have moved ahead.
