Kumar, Shami share unbeaten last-wicket stand of 87 as India rack up 433-9 on day 2

Published: July 10, 2014


NOTTINGHAM, England — Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Mohammed Shami were prolonging England’s frustration with an unbeaten last-wicket stand of 87 as India reached 433-9 at tea on day two of the first test at Trent Bridge.

England would have expected to be batting by now, as it took four wickets for two runs to reduce India to 346-9, from 342-5 at lunch.

But Kumar and Shami kept going and going to post career-best scores in an unbroken partnership that has lasted 181 deliveries. Shami had 39 from 62 balls, while Kumar had a half century in sight, as he was unbeaten on 46 from 120 deliveries.

Ben Stokes took the first wicket after lunch and his first of the match when Ravindra Jadeja edged behind to Matt Prior on 25.

James Anderson then ran out India captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni for 82 from mid-off, when Dhoni attempted an ambitious single. Stokes then struck again, removing debutant Stuart Binny when he tried hit to Joe Root at backward point on 1.

Stuart Broad bowled Ishant Sharma, also for 1, then the attack faltered as Kumar and Shami dug in.

In the opening session, opener Murali Vijay was dismissed for 146. He added 24 runs to his overnight score until an Anderson delivery nipped inwards and hit him high on the leg. Umpire Bruce Oxendale gave him out but replays showed the ball would have cleared the stumps. Replay reviews are not being used in this series, consistent with India’s longstanding policy.

Vijay’s wicket was India’s only setback in an opening session in which it added 83 runs to its overnight score of 259.

Despite the burst after lunch when England claimed four wickets and seemed to seize the initiative, the bowlers have struggled to find much movement in a slow and flat pitch.
