Fans can watch India cricket live online as the squad looks to build on a strong start in their first Test series against England.
On Wednesday the teams kicked off the first of five scheduled Tests to take place over the next month.
Day 1 saw India batting, and on the strength of Murali Vijay’s unbeaten century they reached 259-4.
Experts noted that it was a day of missed opportunities for the English squad. Geoffrey Boycott, a former English batsman, noted on BBC Test Match Special:
“There were some good things by captain Alastair Cook because by lunchtime they were going at four an over – far too quickly. At lunchtime somebody said something and they came out with a better plan and the more important thing for me was there was more intensity in the bowling to bowl to that plan. That was the only time in the day we had the crowd on the edge of their seat. There was half an hour when England had a chance of grabbing the game. That passed and we went back to striving but getting nowhere because the pitch defeated the seamers and we didn’t have a spinner good enough.”
Fans who want to watch the India vs. England cricket Test live online will have a chance to see if England’s bowlers can overcome what was a dead pitch and foil India’s batters.
“It cannot be said how this pitch would behave in the next 4 days, but as of now, the signs don’t look good for the English team,” noted India.com writer Abhimanyu Shahi.
