IND vs ENG: Kevin Pietersen “disgusted” by India’s batting at Headingley,lauds Anderson and Co.’s effort – Team India made headlines for all the wrong reasons after they slipped to an embarrassing 78 all out in the first innings of the Headingley Test against England. Virat Kohli and Co. registered the third-lowest total batting first, handing England the reins who responded with a stellar 120-run opening partnership, courtesy of Haseeb Hameed and Rory Burns, who score splendid half-centuries. Following India’s horror day, a host of former India and England cricketers reacted to the action, including former IPL star and commentator Kevin Pietersen.

Former England captain Kevin Pietersen summed up India’s performance in a series of tweets, describing the shambolic batting display by the visitors while lauding the James Anderson-led bowling attack. Pietersen described Virat Kohli and Co.’s performance with the bat with a “nauseating face emoji”, while celebrated England’s bowling during Day 1 of the IND vs END Headingley test.

Michael Vaughan was also elated with England’s performance but claimed that India had dug into a hole themselves with their poor batting. After India were bowled out for 78, Vaughan cheekily tweeted “Good evening India” irking the already disappointed supporters online.

IND vs ENG Headingley Test: Irfan Pathan meanwhile acknowledged the improvement in England’ bowling and said that the hosts had used the break to their advantage. Pahan noted that Anderson and Co bowled a bit fuller which got them the rewards on Wednesday. Former India opener Wasim Jaffer meanwhile chipped in with yet another meme, urging fans not to watch the game.

The Day 2 action will begin with England openers Rory Burns and Haseeb Hameed striding out, having put on a stellar 120-run stand. The duo have helped England to a 42-run lead, and with all 10 wickets in hand, the hosts could post a mammoth total on favourable batting conditions. Meanwhile, Team India will need a better effort from their four-thronged pace attack, and Virat Kohli will hope that this side can keep England’s lead down to as little as possible.
