Twitter Reactions: Edgbaston Test stands on a knife-edge

in Blog/England/India/Players/Teams/Twitter masti/Virat Kohli

The riveting Test between two unsure-batting units has now turned into a bodily sensation: stomach-churning, teeth-grinding, a four-letter cuss word twitching to get out of the mouth at every close shave. What follows now is a wait.

India will wait for Virat Kohli to pull off a heist whereas England will wait for a ball to swing one inch more than what the Indian batsmen anticipate.

A 20-year old Sam Curran has already done something special to pull England out of a massive hole, dragging them from 87 for 7 to a competitive 180, subsequently setting India a target of 194.

Meanwhile for India, Virat Kohli buckled down and staved off the English attack. Most importantly, he remained not out on 43 runs. Dinesh Karthik, his current partner didn’t play badly either.

The opening Test of the 5 match series at Edgbaston was poised for more entertainment and by the close of play, the match hangs in the balance as India need 84 runs to win with five wickets remaining.
