County XI vs IND Day 3: Jadeja registers second half century in the match, Mayank, Vihari too score valuable runs on final day of warm-up game
Xtra Time Web Desk: Ravindra Jadeja scored back to back fifties in the match while Mayank Agarwal and Hanuma Vihari spent some valuable time in the middle on the final day of India’s warm-up match against County XI at the Riverside Ground in Durham on Thursday.
Earlier in the day, the visitors bowled out the County XI for 220 runs.
Mayank Agarwal (47 off 81) opened the batting with Cheteswar Pujara (38 off 58). The duo shared an 87-run stand which ended when Agarwal charged down the wicket to off-spinner Jack Carson only to be caught at mid-on by fellow India teammate Washington Sundar.
Like Agarwal, Pujara too had the opportunity to make a big score to boost his confidence ahead of the first Test. However, he fell to the trap lay by Carson and flicked one straight to leg slip.
Jadeja (51 off 77) and Vihari (43 not out off 105) then shared an 84-run stand before the southpaw retired out. Jadeja had scored 75 in the first innings.
The match did not have the same intensity as it was witnessed on the first two days with the game heading for a drab draw. Much to the opposition’s surprise, India declared soon after Jadeja completed his fifty with 33 overs left in the game.
County XI batted for 15.5 overs, scoring 31 without a loss of a wicket before the players shook hands.
