We review the second Test of the England v India series – with the focus on the dramatic final day.

Talking Points

  • The remarkable turnaround on the final day of the Lord’s Test
  • How narratives around player behavior are often a TV creation
  • Enhanced TV coverage offering us a perfect window into fast bowling
  • India’s bowlers extracting wickets on a pitch with few demons
  • Jasprit Bumrah to Ollie Robinson – the ball from heaven
  • England’s lack of batting depth – and their over-reliance on Joe Root
  • The opening partnership between Rahul and Rohit – a study in assessing the conditions
  • Pujara and Rahane – facts v spin
  • How Pujara has been turned into Test cricket’s Batman
  • The Ashwin decision – shouldn’t India’s greatest spinner be one of the first names on the team-sheet?
