Team India got off to a bad start in the practice match, Mayank-Pujara

Rohit Sharma captained team india (Team India) could not get a good start with County XI in the first practice match being played at Riversite Ground. Electing to bat after winning the toss, the Indian team lost 3 wickets in the first session. However, KL Rahul has played a half-century for India and he is still unbeaten at the crease. He seems to be batting with good intent.

Poor start for Team India

Team India has had a very disappointing start in the first practice match being played with County XI. After the final of the World Test Championship, now the top 3 batsmen of Team India also flopped in the practice match. In this practice match, Rohit Sharma got out for just 9 runs. So the wickets of Mayank Agarwal and Cheteshwar Pujara were very surprising.

Mayank Agarwal Had started well and the right-handed batsman scored 28 runs with the help of 6 fours but a very bad shot ended his innings. Agarwal went to play a drive off Lyndon James and the ball hit the wicket between his bat and the pads. The wicket of the next batsman, Cheteshwar Pujara, fell in such a way, seeing that you will also laugh. Pujara scored 21 runs in 47 balls and he was out LBW off off-spinner Jack Carson. Pujara went ahead on the delivery of Carson and then he tried to play the ball with the pads but he was dodged and wicketkeeper Ryu walked him.

Virat, Rahane, Ashwin not part of team

Team India captain Virat Kohli, Ajinkya Rahane and Ravichandran Ashwin are not playing in the first practice match being played with County XI. The BCCI has issued a statement giving information about the injury of India’s captain and vice-captain. It said that Virat Kohli felt a stiffness in his back late on Monday evening.

Because of this they are at rest. He was advised by the BCCI medical team not to play in the three-day practice match. Ajinkya Rahane had mild swelling in the hamstring of his left leg. As a result, he had to take injections.
