India vs England, 1st Test, Day 5, Highlights: Match drawn



Nov 13, 2016 - 17:30 (IST)

That's it from me today. Do join us for the second Test match. Till then, goodbye!

Moeen: I really enjoyed batting with Root. We feel like we prepared really well and it was good finally to get out and play a game. Something that I have developed in recent times. In international cricket you need to vary your pace. I think they bowled very very well. Ansari didn't go for many runs and Rash picked up the wickets. The boys are confident after this game. We had four hundreds which was very encouraging and a brilliant debut from Haseeb Hameed."

Moeen Ali is the man of the match.

Kohli: "We could have been better on day one and day two. England are a side that we are not taking for granted. If you don't hold on to your chances, it will be tough. We need to accept what happened on the negative side, and learn from it in the next game. The spinners bowled in the first two days and credit to England. They put us under pressure when they got the chance. There are a lot of positives that we can take. Anything can happen in Test cricket. We have the batting line up to score 500 and it anything would have happened (If India had won the toss)."

Kohli: "Good opportunity to find out new aspect of your game. To play against the momentum is a skill you need to develop. That is what I spoke to Jadeja as well. It is very important to convince yourself that you can get through those tough periods."

Cook: (On Adil Rashid) I thought all our spinners bowled really well. Adil stepped up in this game. This is a game where all three of them can be proud of."

Nov 13, 2016 - 17:00 (IST)

Cook: (On Hameed) The way Hass played in the second innings was unbelievable. There were only two chances to win. In the end, they held on. It was really strange, flat for the first three days and turned more and more, but people managed to score runs. It turned for both left and right-handers. It's quite a case. Hopefully I can add to that. Brilliant knock. I thought the way he played, it was brilliant."

Nov 13, 2016 - 16:59 (IST)

Cook: "Yeah, a really tough five days, we played good cricket. It was a good toss to win. In India if you get 530, you usually win. Really proud of the way boys played. To keep them to 480, we bowled really well."

Nov 13, 2016 - 16:57 (IST)

Adil Rashid gets the Jana Bankable player of the match award. 

Nov 13, 2016 - 16:49 (IST)

Joe Root: I think credit to Cookie and Haas. Credit to India for making it a little tricky for us, but we get a lot of confidence going into the next one. We have to make sure we put in the hard work before that. Think its a fresh start. Completely different conditions, but we are doing some pretty good work right now. Spinners bowled well today, so many chances that could have gone our way. I don't think our 2nd innings score is a reflection of the conditions. The batsmen batted exceedingly well.

Report, day 4: Skipper Alastair Cook (46 not out) and debutant Haseeb Hameed (62 not out) put England in the driver's seat with an unbeaten 114-run stand, as the visitors extended their lead to 163 runs at stumps on the penultimate day of the opening Test against India in Rajkot on Saturday.

After dismissing India for 488 and taking a slender 49-run lead in the first innings, the England openers started on a cautious note with the teenaged opener, Hameed getting to his maiden half century off 94 balls at the Saurashtra Cricket Association Stadium.

Coming in to bat in the post-tea session, the left-right opening combo frustrated the Indian bowlers as Cook and Hameed took England over the 100-run mark in the 33rd over.

Hameed, who consumed 116 balls for his undefeated 62, got a life, when the 19-year-old was batting on 40 after the third umpire turned down a leg-before review from the hosts.

Unfazed at the calls, the right-hander went on with his calculative stroke play hitting five fours and a six.

Cook, at the other end, maintained his composure and rotated the strike well as the southpaw took 107 deliveries for his knock, which contained just three hits to the fence.

For India, none of the bowlers looked threatening as even the spin trio of Ravichandran Ashwin, Ravindra Jadeja and Amit Mishra failed to extract the spin and bounce like their English counterparts.

Earlier, leg-spinner Adil Rashid scalped 4/114 to help England restrict India for 488 in their first essay. Rashid was well supported by fellow spinners Moeen Ali and Zafar Ansari, who took two wickets each.

Ravichandran Ashwin scored a half-century and produced a 64-run stand along with wicketkeeper Wriddhiman Saha after Indian captain Virat Kohli and his deputy Ajinkya Rahane went back to the pavilion before lunch.

Ashwin scored 70 runs, studding his innings with seven boundaries.

Saha, who was caught behind off Ali's bowling, scored 35 with two boundaries and a six.

Ravindra Jadeja and Umesh Yadav also returned to the pavilion soon after Saha's departure.

Ashwin was then involved in another partnership of 29 runs with Mohammed Shami before Ali dismissed him to bring India's first innings to an end.

Earlier, Kohli and Rahane ensured that the hosts started the day on a steady note.

Resuming on the overnight score of 319/4, Kohli and Rahane saw off the initial spells from England pacers Stuart Broad and Chris Woakes.

The duo added 30 runs between them before Rahane was bowled by left-arm spinner Ansari.

Cook employed a packed field on the off-side which forced the Indian batsmen to repeatedly try to score on the onside.

The move paid rich dividends as both Rahane and Kohli departed in quick succession while trying to hit against the turn to the onside.

Rahane was dismissed while trying to work the ball to the onside against the spin. But he misjudged the length and could only watch as the ball crashed into his stumps.

The Mumbai batsman scored 13 off 30 balls with one hit to the fence.

Kohli was also dismissed while trying to hit to the onside. The Indian captain stepped too deep inside his crease while pulling leggie Rashid and treaded on the stumps during the follow through.

Kohli scored 40 runs with five boundaries studding his 95-ball stay in the middle.

Ashwin and Saha then took charge and ensured that the hosts went into the lunch break without any further loss of wickets.

India vs England, T20 World Cup 2021 Warm-up Match Highlights: India beat England by seven wickets

India vs England, T20 World Cup warm-up match, Live Updates: Chris Jordan to bowl. too straight from Jordan, and it's in the perfect slot for Hardik, who drills it between mid-off and extra cover for four! Great start to the over for India. Good ball, almost wide but not quite and it's a dot. Low full toss into Pandya's knees. He could have taken the single, but he chooses to stay on strike. Oh, very poor delivery from Jordan. That was wide and high, and it also ran away for four without making any contact with Pandya's bat. Free hit signalled. Pandya gets a huge edge on it, and that's four! It flies over short third man! Another low full toss, and the India duo run a double. Oh my word, a no ball now, and Pandya takes a single. Terrible over this from Jordan. Pant to face a free hit now. India just need 3 from 7 balls. Pant could end it now. It's a six and India win by seven wickets!!
