Jadeja gets 2 wkts on debut, India on top despite low turnout at the stadium.

 

England 156-5 (75 ovs) vs India

Matt Prior smashes Chawla through the covers for his first boundary, the first after seven overs as India continue to dry up the runs. Jadeja continues to bowl the majority of overs for India as his figures as of now ready 21-11-32-2. Ishant comes back into the attack, but no signs of Ojha and Ashwin yet. England crawl to 156 for five after 75 overs at just over two runs per over.

Have you ever seen a more boring day of Test cricket?

Here are some moments from the 2 sessions of play where the turn out at the match was poor. it has been reported that many people didn’t turn up since it was 16km away and also it being the first day didn’t make sense. The only signs of encouragement were the large turn out of students. The credit of this goes to the VCA who decided to give away free passes to students wishing to attend the test match.
