IND vs ENG | England have put themselves in great position in the first Test, admits Dom Bess
By admin | | 0 Comments |


England off-spinner Dom Bess, who ran through the Indian line-up on Sunday, admitted that his side are now in a commanding position in the game but insisted that it is imperative for the team to not think too far ahead. Bess further hailed Pant, who according to him played a phenomenal innings.When England strode out to bat on Day 3, they were accused by many of ‘playing for a draw’, but the Three Lions’ astounding bowling performance on Day 3 turned the narrative of the first Test around. After accumulating a mammoth 578, England, at stumps on Day 3, reduced India to 257/6, putting themselves in prime position to win the contest. The job for England, however, is only half-done and this was acknowledged by Dom Bess, who was the destructor-in-chief on Sunday. Bess, who picked four wickets and punched a hole in India’s batting, admitted that his side are in a strong position, but stated that it is important for them to not think too far ahead. "I do not want to get too far ahead and say anything. Most important thing is finishing off this first innings and see where they are at, at that point in time. They got these two, who can certainly bat. But we have put ourselves in a very good position," Bess said in a virtual press conference on Sunday. Despite coming on the back of a successful tour of Sri Lanka, there were doubts over Bess’ quality as a spinner, but the youngster put to bed all questions through an exceptional showing on Day 3. Bess’ sizzling performance included the prized scalp of Virat Kohli, and the 23-year-old revealed that the Indian skipper’s wicket ‘happened by chance’. “I was just trying to bowl at a spot, trying to build pressure for a long time, and II guess it just happened. It wasn't like I was trying to bowl that magic ball. It was really just about hitting that box. I saw the replay and it seemed to [drift] a little more and got him playing at a wider line, and I'm glad Popey took a great catch at short leg,” Bess said of Kohli’s wicket.England and Bess managed to keep almost every Indian batsman in check, but Rishabh Pant. On the back of historic knocks at both the SCG and Gabba, Pant played yet another mind-bogglingly good inning, striking 9 fours and 5 sixes before falling nine short of a well-deserved century. Bess described Pant’s innings as ‘phenomenal’."Pant is just a completely different player and he played phenomenal innings. I think how he played was really courageous.”In particular, Pant took a liking to left-arm spinner Jack Leach, who was deposited to the stands five times by the southpaw. Pant’s merciless assault meant that Leach finished with figures of 0/94 at the end of Day 3. Bess insisted that the left-armer bowled exceptionally well and added that he was unfortunate to have got caught in the Pant-storm.“I thought Leachy bowled really well today. You saw the spot map, and from him to Sundar, I guess he had 20 balls on the same spot, but I guess it was just a different innings [from Pant].”Follow us on Facebook hereStay connected with us on Twitter hereLike and share our Instagram page here .

IND vs ENG | Gill will learn with time, needs to be encouraged to play attacking cricket, claims Gautam Gambhir
By admin | | 0 Comments |


Gautam Gambhir defended Shubman Gill after the youngster was dismissed playing a rash shot on Day 3, and claimed that the 21-year-old will learn and mature as he plays more matches. Gambhir reckoned Gill looked ‘unbelievable’ in his short stay and hoped for the management to back the youngster.The Indian openers walked out to bat after spending 190 long overs on the field but any apprehensions about mental fatigue were instantaneously squashed by young Shubman Gill. On just the seventh ball he faced, the right-hander played a thumping pull off the bowling of Jofra Archer and by the time he faced his 20th ball, he’d already struck four boundaries. Gill looked a class above the rest and further asserted his dominance on the very first ball of the 10th over, dispatching an overpitched Archer delivery via a wristy flick.However, against the run of play, tragedy struck the very next ball as Gill perished attempting an extravagant straight drive. The bowler, Archer, pitched the ball up once again and Gill, aiming to drive, ended up scooping the ball straight to Jimmy Anderson at mid-on. The youngster has since come under criticism for his impatience and shot selection, but one person who believes Gill should not be chastised is Gautam Gambhir. Reviewing the morning session on ESPN Cricinfo, Gambhir spoke highly of Gill’s short stay at the middle and felt the 21-year-old was unlucky to get out the way he did. Gambhir reckoned Gill will learn and mature with time and said that, given the form he was in, the right-hander’s dismissal was ‘understandable’.“I think he looked unbelievable. When you’re playing that kind of an innings, you just want to continue doing that - because you’re in that kind of a rhythm as well. When you’re on a run-ball 27 or 28, hitting Jofra Archer through mid-wicket and your confidence is sky-high after a successful tour of Australia, it’s difficult to stop,” Gambhir said on ESPN Cricinfo.“You’ve got to give it to the young boy. He’s only going to learn with experience. What we saw from Shubman Gill - the entire country should be excited about it. He’s only going to learn with time. You can’t expect someone playing their 3rd or 4th Test match to not play that shot.”Gill finished his innings with a strike rate of 103.57 and in his young career has shown that he is someone who loves to take the attack to the position. On the back of his dismissal today, there have been calls for the youngster to tone down his aggression but Gambhir is against that idea. The former Indian opener feels Gill needs to be encouraged to play with aggression and believes such an approach will help the right-hander rack up tons of runs in international cricket.“Yes, he played a touch little early but then again very good catch. I would not think too much about it. I would still want Shubman Gill to play the way he did. Ultimately if he keeps playing this way, he is going to get many more runs. So nothing to think about.”Follow us on Facebook hereStay connected with us on Twitter hereLike and share our Instagram page here .

ENG vs IND | England need to cash-in and score 600 or 700, asserts Joe Root
By admin | | 0 Comments |


England skipper Joe Root, who scored a ton in his 100th Test match today, insisted that it was important for his side to cash in on the start and maximize the advantage by scoring close to 600 in the first innings. After winning the toss, England finished Day 1 very strongly, at 263/3.Playing India in India is always a daunting task but Joe Root’s England side had a near-perfect start to the tour as the Three Lions ended Day 1 on 263/3. Winning the toss and batting first, Rory Burns and Dom Sibley put on a 63-run opening stand to set the tone for the visitors, but it was a 200-run stand between skipper Root and Sibley that put the Three Lions in the driver's seat. Sibley perished for 87, but Root ended the day unbeaten on 128*, scoring a third consecutive Test ton. At 263/3 England are in prime position to take control of the Test, but Root knows that the batsmen’s job is far from over. Speaking in the aftermath of his marathon effort, the England skipper insisted that his side, tomorrow, need to cash-in on the start and try to boost the total up to 600 or 700 to take full control of the contest. The last time England visited India, they suffered an innings defeat in Chennai despite racking up 477 on the board in the first innings. "I think we've got to look to try and get as many as we can - 600, 700 if we can, really try and make the most of the first innings while it's good," Root told reporters at the end of Day 1. "Those footholes are starting to wear quite quickly. So, if we can bat the whole of tomorrow and maybe into day three then things could speed up quite quickly for us and you never know what can happen from that point onwards, but ultimately we've got to try and back up today."The century Root struck today was his third on the trot, after having already posted scores of 228 and 186 in Sri Lanka last month. The England skipper, in fact, remarkably has a 100% conversion record this year, having gone the entirety of 2020 without striking a single ton. The 30-year-old revealed that he made technical adjustments to ensure that he makes starts count and scores big hundreds to help the side."I certainly feel like I'm in some good form and I need to make sure I cash in on it I think over the course of my career, I've not always gone on and made really big scores so to be going and doing that currently is really pleasing."I've worked on a few technical things I've looked at a few areas of my game. I've looked at certain trends of how I was getting out at certain types of my innings, and tried to eradicate it."Root's impeccable ton today was the 20th of his Test career. Follow us on Facebook hereStay connected with us on Twitter hereLike and share our Instagram page here .
