Liam Plunkett has dismissed Cheteshwar Pujara and Liam Plunkett off consecutive deliveries to help England get back into the game in the second Test against India at Lord’s. Before these dismissals, India were going along smoothly with Pujara striking a sound partnership with Murali Vijay. India are now 118 for three with Ajinkya Rahane and Vijay in the middle.
Pujara was on 43 and he was dismissed when he fished at a delivery from Plunkett outside the off-stump. Pujara’s dismissal brought Kohli to the crease and he was out while shouldering arms to a delivery he believed would go through. But, it clipped the top of off stump. This is a big blow for India and they would hope the two centurions for them on this tour help them come back.
