On the fifth day of the England-India second Test at Lord's London was unexpected but surprising. The Indian tailenders provided key runs to score huge runs on their team board. Mohammad Shami and Jaspreet Bumra both batted superbly. In addition, tailenders were warmly welcomed by Indian cricketers.
India's top oder batsaman didnt perform as expectations in the second innings. However, Indian tailenders have a different plan. India's last hope on the fifth day was wicketkeeper-batsman Rishabh Pant, however, he failed to play an aggressive innings for the team. Pant was dismissed in the 86th over of the match and with neither Ravichandran Ashwin nor Shardul Thakur in the lower middle order, India had a long batting tail at 194-7.
Mohammad Shami and Jaspreet Bumra added 77 for the ninth wicket, the highest for India at Lord's Cricket Ground. India added 105 in the first session of the fifth day at a rate of 4.04. At lunch, India were (lead ) 259 for 286 for eight.
In the end Mohammed Shami and Jaspreet Bumra have different plans. Indian fast bowlers Shami and Bumrah were at the crease after Ishant Sharma was dismissed for a crucial 16-run stand. Also, he was upset against when he got out with himself. Shami scored a sensational half-century and was No. 1 at Lord's. 9 number India's highest score was 56 unbeaten before it was Kumar scoring 52 while batting 9th at Lord's ahead of Shami Bhubaneswar. Also Jaspreet Bumra has his highest Test score of 34 not out.
After an excellent innings when Bumrah and Shami entered the room all the Indian cricketers gathered in the long room were seen clapping. The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) writes:
On otherhand later India declared the innings after a good 272-run lead. England need 272 runs to win in 60 overs. However, Jaspreet Bumra once again got Rory Burns out for the duck.
