England, India

Stuard Broad sours India’s hopes

England’s fast bowler Stuart Broad shattered India’s hopes on a consecutive second day when he took a 6 wicket haul including a hat-trick as India tried to stretch its lead after getting a solid start. Broad had earlier scored 64 runs to rescue England from a total collapse after England found themselves at an awkward position of 88 for 6 on the first day.

Dravid scored a century on the second day but India’s hopes came crumbing down when Broad took three wickets in three consecutive deliveries to claim a 6 for 64 on day two of the second Test. India were at one stage on 267/4 with two set batsmen at the crease, they would have definately been eyeing 400 plus when Broad got Yuvraj to edge one to the wicket keeper. This brought life back in the team and the crowd on a sunny afternoon. In his next over, he got Dhoni, Harbhajan and Kumar to complete his hat-trick. Later Bresnan got Dravid while Broad got Sharma to rap up the innings.

Lets see how India replies to the sudden fall of wickets and hope that they are able to regain control of the match once again. Earlier, Sachin Tendulkar once again failed to leave a mark when he was bowled out for a meager 16 runs off 34 balls.

The current score of the match at the end of day two is: England 221 and 24/1 and India 288 all out.
