The first match of the ongoing IND vs ENG 5-Test Match series is being played in Hyderabad from January 25.

England’s team, which came to India with bazball, had a bad condition on the first day of the first Test match. The bazball that England had made a fuss about, the Indian team took it out. Seeing the condition of England, South African batsman AB de Villiers taunted him. Virat Kohli’s close friend taught the visiting team a cricket lesson.

England scored 246 runs in the first innings on the first day of the first cricket Test against India on Thursday. Captain Ben Stokes scored 70 runs for England. Johnny Bairstow scored 37 while Ben Duckett scored 35 runs. For India, Ravichandran Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja took three wickets each while Jaspreet Bumrah and Akshar Patel took two wickets each.

AB de Villiers Tweeted

AB de Villiers tweeted, “India are playing at 8/9 runs per over. You don’t have to call it brave, bold, or bazball. It’s just about playing according to the situation. Identifying opportunities in a Test match so that you can get ahead in the match is everything. When the momentum shifts, you wait for such a time.”

“At the end of the day, if you don’t respect different situations or don’t understand the meaning of momentum shifting, it will hurt you. No matter what ball you’re playing.” He also shared an eye-winking emoji (😉) at the end of this tweet, which clearly showed that he was taunting England’s Bazball thinking.
