1 min read

England were surprised by the aggressive approach of India’s openers Yashasvi Jaiswal and Rohit Sharma in the first Test. Ben Duckett said England’s total of 246 was “an above-par score” after nine wickets fell to spin on day one. Duckett praised Ben Stokes for his contribution, saying England could have easily taken more wickets. Despite a difficult day, Duckett was happy with England’s total. Jaiswal and Rohit put on 80 runs before Rohit was caught by Stokes. Duckett noted India’s attacking intent, suggesting it was due to the expected deterioration of the pitch. England lost wickets in clusters, but Duckett expressed confidence in England’s bowling capabilities, hoping for quick wickets. He praised Jaiswal’s performance and expressed hope for England’s performance in the following days.
