It was heartwarming to see the way Shaw obliged his fans and gave them a moment to remember.
Meanwhile, after the first day was washed out due to rain, play resumed on Day 2 and the hosts won the toss and invited the tourists to bat first. Apart from KL Rahul’s three-run-knock, all the other top order batsman got among the runs. Captain Kohli hit a brilliant 64 off 87 balls and Pujara and Vihari also stroked brilliant fifties, which should give them a whole lot of confidence ahead of the four-match Test series.
India was bundled out for 358 on Day 2.
The hosts started their innings and at stumps on Day 2, were 24/0. They trail by 334 runs. On Day 3, India will look to bowl out the hosts and would dearly like to have another bat.
