India vs Leicestershire: Team India has to play the fifth Test match against England in Edgbaston and before that important match, Team India’s pole has been exposed. A bowler who has not made his first-class debut so far has dropped three wickets for Team India.
Every fan of Team India is dreaming that their team will win the Test series in England. There is a 2-1 lead in the series and they will also win the Test series in Edgbaston starting on 1 July to capture the Test series. But the possibilities of this seem very less. The kind of performance by the batsmen of Team India in the first innings of the warm-up match against Leicestershire is really tension. The Indian team lost its five wickets for just 81 runs against Listershire. No Rohit Sharma Chale, neither Shubman Gill, nor Shreyas Iyer’s bat went. The matter of concern here is that the batsmen of the Indian team looked upset in front of a bowler who has not played a single first class match so far. Talking about Roman Walker who has not made his first class debut yet. This player has played only 2 List A matches but this player showed the way to the pavilion to players like Rohit Sharma, Hanuma Vihari and Ravindra Jadeja.
Roman Walker’s Havoc
Roman Walker attacked the weaknesses of the Indian batsmen. Recently, Indian captain Rohit Sharma has looked upset against the short ball and this player used the same ball to harass him. On Walker’s finest short ball, Rohit tried to play a pull shot and got out. After this, this player tried to put Hanuma Vihari on drive but the ball went out and he was caught in the slips. Walker was also dismissed LBW to Ravindra Jadeja. Meaning Walker troubled the Indian batsmen with his swing.
Who is Roman Walker?
Let us tell you that Roman Walker is a Welsh cricketer. This player made a List A debut for Glamorgan in the year 2019. Earlier, Walker played a match for England in the 2018 Under 19 World Cup, in which he took two wickets. Let us tell you that Shubman Gill was also a part of the 2018 Under 19 World Cup, who made Team India win the World Cup by performing brilliantly. Roman Walker has also not got a chance to play much cricket, but in the warm-up match against India, this player has proved his talent.
How will Team India face Anderson-Broad?
Now the question is, when the Indian team is looking troubled in front of such an inexperienced bowler, then how will it face Anderson and Broad? Broad and Anderson are bowling amazingly at the same time. Both the players have made life difficult for the opposing batsmen in the Test series against New Zealand. It is clear that the batsmen of Team India are going to have a big test in Edgbaston. By the way, in the warm-up match, Rohit Sharma scored 25, Shubman Gill scored 21 runs. Hanuma Vihari could only score 3 runs. Shreyas Iyer didn’t even open his account in 11 balls. Ravindra Jadeja also returned to the pavilion after scoring 13 runs.
