Shardul Thakur takes twitter by storm with 2nd fastest 50 by an Indian


India looked down and out in the 4th test at 127/7. However, after Pant’s dismissal, Shardul Thakur unleashed a spectacular innings of 57 in 36 balls to lead a great fightback for India. He scored at a 158 strike rate and batted with  86%control  He added 63 with Umesh Yadav and those are priceless runs for India as it turned out towards the end of day 1 as England stumbled to 53/3 with Root gone for 21. 

Shardul’s innings was studded with 7 fours and 3 sixes. It was full of belligerent hitting and quality strokes with no slogging. His shots included lofted shots down the ground, straight drives, off drives, hits over mid-wicket and a couple of great pull shots. He completed his 50 with a great pull for a 6 off 31 balls and surpassed Virender Sehwag’s fastest 50 against England off 32 balls in Chennai 2008 when Viru scored 87 in a 4th innings winning cause.
