The final match of the World Test Championship is being played between India and Australia at Kennington Oval in London. After the end of the three-day game, the Australian team seems to have the upper hand, but in the meantime, Shardul Thakur has caused a sensation with his statement.
By the end of the three day game Australia have scored 123 runs in their second innings losing 4 wickets. With this, the Kangaroos’ total lead has risen to 296 runs. After the end of the third day game, Shardul Thakur has made quite a statement after scoring a half century in the first innings.
After the end of the game on the third day, Shardul Thakur told the media, “A target of 450 or more runs can be chased here on the basis of good partnership.” Let us tell you that in the first innings, Shardul had scored a brilliant half century and along with Rahane they shared a 100+ run partnership by the seventh wicket.
Due to the innings of Shardul and Rahane, the India team was able to score 296 runs in the first innings. Shardul said, “Cricket is such a game that you can’t say what the correct total is. You can’t say anything. A great partnership here can deal with the pressure. Even if the target is 450 or more.”
Lord Shardul further said: “England achieved a target of 400 runs at this ground last year. They didn’t have too many wickets then. It’s a positive for us. How much he will score, remains to be said.” It’s hard. In Test Cricket many times the game changes within an hour. We will go out onto the field with this expectation.
