Rahul Dravid Rues India Missing Out On 70-80 Runs In The First Innings After Defeat To England

Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium: India head coach Rahul Dravid was left rueing over the inability of his team not getting 70-80 runs more in their first innings of the Hyderabad Test which the hosts’ eventually ended up losing by 28 runs to England at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium.

In their first innings total of 436, Yashasvi Jaiswal, KL Rahul and Ravindra Jadeja made 80, 86 and 87 respectively, while captain Rohit Sharma and Shreyas Iyer fell after getting starts. Despite taking a 190-run lead, India squandered that advantage as England vice-captain Ollie Pope scored a sensational 196 to turn the game around in the visitors’ favour.

"I thought we left probably 70 runs on the board in the first innings. In our first innings, when conditions were pretty good to bat in on day two, I thought in the kinds of situations we got ourselves into, some good starts and we didn't really capitalise."
