Twitter Reactions: Ravindra Jadeja and Hanuma Vihari reduce England’s first innings lead to just 40 runs

Posted On / /

At the start of Day 3 of the fifth and final Test between England and India at the Kia Oval, the visitors were in deep trouble as the scorecard read 174-6, a solid 158 runs behind the home team’s total. Joy Root & Co. were eyeing a huge lead in the first innings, but Hanuma Vihari and Ravindra Jadeja had different plans.

For the seventh wicket, the duo added useful 77 runs before the departure of Vihari for 56 runs. Even after the debutant’s dismissal, Jadeja continued his exploits with the bat and went to make an unbeaten 86. And as a result of both the half-centuries, India managed to score 292 runs in their first innings, which is just 40 runs less than England’s first innings total.

Here’s how Twitter reacted to the efforts of Ravindra Jadeja and Hanuma Vihari:
