ENG vs IND: Shubman Gill impressed on the last day

As expected, India declared with their overnight score and set Leicestershire a target of 366 runs on the final day of the game. Shubman Gill opened for Leicestershire and played a brilliant innings. He was aggressive from the start and slammed the Indian bowlers in all parts of the field.

Indian primary spinner Ravichandran Ashwin, who arrived in the UK later than other team members after testing positive for Covid, got a chance to bowl in this innings. He bowled 11 overs and took 2 wickets in the innings, which also included Shubman Gill, who was performing brilliantly till that time.

Hanuma Vihari, who is most likely to be India’s No. 3 in the Test match against England, played a brilliant innings of 26 off 86 balls. He could not score 50 runs in 3 innings of this test match. He looked like a fish out of water during a practice game. It will be a worrying sign for the Indian team but they will be glad that they got a good chance to play in the main match against England.

When Leicestershire needed 147 runs to win the game with 6 wickets in hand, both the teams decided to call it a day and the game ended in a draw.

Overall, the game has served its purpose for the Indians, and they will look forward to the fifth and final Test against England starting July 1.
