India’s warm-up match against District XI ended in a draw

Mayank Agarwal and Hanuma Vihari spent some time in the middle Ravindra Jadea scored his second fifty of play on the last day of India’s warm-up match against District XI here on Thursday.

After leaving District XI for 220 on the second day, Agarwal (47 of 81) and Cheteshwar Pujara (38 of 58) opened India’s second inning on the third day.

The duo shared 87 stands, which ended when Agarwal loaded the door for Jack Carson to be caught in the middle of his Indian teammate Washington Sundar.

Washington and Pacer Avesh Khan, who are due to fly home due to injury, played for District XI in India’s only warm-up game before the first test, starting on August 4.

Like Agarwal, Pujara also had the opportunity to score high to boost his confidence before the first test. However, he fell into the trap set by Carson and threw one straight into his foot.

Jadeja (51 out of 77) and Vihari (43 instead of 105 out of 105) then shared a stand with 84 moves before the southern paw withdrew. Judea had scored 75 in the first innings.

The match did not have the same intensity as was observed in the first two days, when the game led to a draw. To the great surprise of the opposition, India announced soon after Jadea finished his fifties with 33 overs left in the game.

County XI hit 15.5 overs, scoring 31 without losing a wicket before players shook hands.

Earlier in the game, KL Rahul celebrated a sublime half-century to make a statement before the five test series Umesh Yadav looked good with the ball.

Jasprit Bumrah, who was not in color in the World Cup final, finished with just one goal in the game while Mohammad Siraj put together a pair. Skipper Virat Kohli and Adjinkya Rahane missed the first class game due to minor annoyance.
