India is currently up against England in the five-match Test series where the visiting side has already taken up a 1-0 lead. While the second Test was won by India in the most enthralling manner by huge 151 runs, they are off to their next destination for the 3rd Test. The third Test between India and England is all set to take place at Leeds.
As India left for Leeds, the team was seen having a great time inside the bus. In the same sequence of events, former Indian cricketer and analyst Wasim Jaffer came up with a hilarious meme featuring Prithvi Shaw and Rohit Sharma. The picture shared by Jaffer showed young Shaw sitting over Sharma in the bus where both of them had an adorable smile on their face.

While Sharma is a regular in the Test squad of India and contributed immensely with the bat at the Lord’s, Shaw is yet to get a chance in the series. Sharma stole the show while playing a classy knock of 83 runs during the 1st innings at the Lord’s. Shaw traveled from Sri Lanka to the UK after being named as a reserve player while many of the regular players got injured meanwhile.
India won the 2nd Test at the Lord’s in utmost style
Shaw was accompanied by Suryakumar Yadav from Sri Lanka who is yet to mark his Test debut. Talking about the 2nd Test, India showed class and determination to grab the game in their favor. The ninth-wicket partnership by Mohammed Shami and Jasprit Bumrah became the talking point on the final day of the game and in turn, Indian bowlers also brought great action to the table. KL Rahul was declared as the player of the match for his classy ton in the first innings of the game.
“I’ve been looking at it every morning to see if they’ve put it on permanently. They haven’t – it’s still a temporary piece of paper (name on the honours boards). To put on 360 on the board was really crucial, very happy. Been here for a couple of months now and been working really hard on our skills. Even in the first game at Trent Bridge, the batsmen have shown a lot of discipline. That’s what you expect with two competitive teams – great skills, and a few words as well,” said Rahul after the match.
