Lokesh Rahul and Ajinkya Rahane led the innings on Friday, the second day of Under-19 World Cup champion captain Unmukt Chand’s retirement from Indian cricket at the age of 28. However, India suffered two major setbacks in the beginning itself. Rahul could score only four runs in the first day’s 125 runs. Rahul was the victim of Robinson. He faced 250 balls and scored 129 runs which included 12 fours and a six. In the very next over, James Anderson sent Rahane to the pavilion. Rahane’s poor form continued as he was dismissed for just one run.

Pant was dismissed for 37 runs in 58 balls with the help of five fours.
Jadeja retained one end after Rishabh Pant was dismissed but the tail-end batsman at the opposite end was getting dismissed cheaply.

For England, James Anderson took five early wickets for 62 runs. Mark Wood and Ollie Robinson had two and Moeen Ali had one.
