Kohli has been going through a protracted lean patch. He added five boundaries and two sixes to his 67-run innings. Virat had excellent assistance from Iyer. He got his runs off 89 balls with the help of 11 boundaries, and Jadeja, who hit 10 fours during his unbroken effort.
But even with three fours, Chesteshwar Pujara could only manage 22 of the 53 balls. Both teams used Pujara as a batter. In the first innings of Leicestershire on Friday, he was dismissed for a duck.
In the Indian second innings, Jadeja was also out for a duck off Navdeep Saini, but as it was only a practice game, he subsequently returned to bat again. At the time of stumps, Jadeja was accompanied by Mohammed Siraj (1 not out). Pacer Navdeep Saini (3/55), one of the four Indian players who played for Leicestershire, showed brightly by taking three wickets for the county team.
Along with Will Davis (1/400) and R Sai Kishore (1/55), two more Indian players, Kamlesh Nagarkoti (2/48) and Kamlesh Nagarkoti (2/48) each contributed two wickets. Prior to this, Saini, who had already taken Shubman Gill‘s wicket on the second day, quickly removed the experienced Srikar Bharat (43 off 98) and Jadeja (0) from the game. This brought India to 118 for 4.
The first player to go, though, was Hanuma Vihari (20), who left off Will Davis’ bowling after only adding 11 runs to his overnight total. With the help of Bharat and Jadeja, Saini delivered a pair of blows. This was in the span of one over after scoring 17 runs. Iyer and Shardul Thakur (28 off 38), who were both dismissed by Nagakoti in a period of seven overs. They were both victims.
