Shardul Thakur is enjoying his time in England. The right-handed batsman scored his second consecutive fifty of the ongoing fourth Test between England and India at the Oval.
He stitched a 100-run partnership with Rishabh Pant to take India to a strong position against the hosts. As Thakur reached his fifty, his teammates applauded his knock. He was even praised by fans on social media.
Lord Shardul Thakur is dismissed for 60. But man that was a terrific innings to watch. Some of his shots 😱 how good! #ENGvIND

Shardul Thakur is the fast bowling all rounder that India is hoping Hardik Pandya would turn out to be.
