Mohammed Shami and Ravindra Jadeja took three wickets each while Shardul Thakur and Mohammed Siraj took two wickets each to help Team India make a comeback on day 2 of the warm-up match. India declared at 246/8 from the overnight score. Mohammed Shami justified Rohit Sharma’s decision of declaration as the pacer dismissed Leicestershire skipper Sam Evans for 1. It was not great news for India from the batting front as Cheteshwar Pujara who was playing for Leicestershire was sent packing for a duck by Shami.
In the 14th over Mohammed Siraj also struck dismissing opener Louis Kimber for 31 caught behind by wicket-keeper KS Bharat to leave Leicestershire tottering at 44/3.
