Team India defeated England by 107 runs in the second match of the 5-match Test series. Now the Indian team has equalized the series 1-1. The performance of the young players of the team was amazing in this entire match. Be it Yashasvi Jaiswal’s double century in the first innings or Shubman Gill’s century in the second innings. Apart from this, Jasprit Bumrah’s 9 wickets were most important in India’s victory. Team India coach Rahul Dravid also gave a big statement on the performance of the young players.
What did Dravid say about Gill?
Before this match, Shubman Gill was going through bad form. But he has returned to form by scoring a century. Regarding Gill, coach Dravid said that if you want these players to play with a little intention and a little positiveness, then you will have to accept some mistakes. And sometimes, you know, guys may not be able to make it big on every start. But for us, for me, it doesn’t matter that much. I think we need to understand when to apply pressure to understand if we are taking the right decision.

Jaiswal also praised
Jaiswal had scored 209 runs in the first innings. And about 53 percent of India’s runs came from his bat. Jaiswal has shown amazing maturity at the age of 22. But the rest of the batsmen could not perform that well and Team India’s score could not even cross 400. Regarding him, Dravid said that I think we have again put runs on the board here. We have a lot of young batsmen. You don’t have a lot of time to understand Test cricket. I will honestly say that I think we put a little less runs on the board in both innings. 396 is a good score. But you win the toss and you have a player who has scored a double century, then you should think about 450-475 runs.
