India won the second Test match by 151 runs at Lord’s. Recalling the victory, fielding coach R Sridhar sat down for a chat with veteran off-spinner R Ashwin on the YouTube channel of the cricketer.
In the video, he shared an anecdote from Day 5 of the Lord’s Test. He revealed that when Shami and Bumrah were coming back to the dressing room after their unbeaten partnership of more than 80 runs, Kohli asked the teammates to make a huge noise for the two players.
“When we realised they were going to come in at lunch, Virat came and said: Everyone of us is going down to cheer and welcome the boys. The noise has to be so huge that it has to reverberate in Lord’s for years to come,” Royal Challengers Bangalore quoted R Sridhar as saying on Ashwin’s YouTube show.
Having set England a target of 272 runs, the visiting bowlers dismissed England for 120 and secured a 151-run win.
