Virat clashes with umpire
Many batsmen of Team India including captain Rohit Sharma failed miserably against Leicestershire. But Virat Kohli along with KS Bharat handled the Indian innings. However, when Virat was batting on 33, the umpire gave him out in a wrong way. The umpire gave Virat out on a ball from Leicestershire bowler Roman Walker but Virat was not happy with this decision.
As soon as Walker’s ball hit Virat’s pads, the fielding team made a strong appeal. But the umpire gave Virat out after taking a long time. Virat’s senses were blown away by this decision and he also looked very angry. He also talked to the umpire in a gesture, but then he returned to the pavilion with a face.

Big batsmen failed
Team India’s big batsmen proved to be unsuccessful in the practice match against Leicestershire. Captain Rohit Sharma himself returned after batting for a while at the crease. Rohit 25 then his fellow opener Shubman Gill returned after scoring just 21 runs. Both these batsmen will also take charge of the opening in the last Test against England. On the first day till lunch, Team India lost its 5 wickets for 90 runs.
These players were also flop
Apart from Rohit and Gill, the middle order of Team India also flopped badly. Except Virat Kohli, none of the batsmen could survive and kept coming one after the other. In this sequence, Hanuma Vihari scored only 3 runs after playing the full 23 balls. Something similar happened with Shreyas Iyer and he could not even open his account. Surprisingly, when Ravindra Jadeja also returned like this cheaply.
