Both Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma signaled to Rishabh Pant and Ishant Sharma to point out the bad light to the umpires and questioned why they have not already done so.
India captain Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma seemed, by all accounts, to be agitated before the end of Day 4 as the guests wound up in a spot of trouble at Lord’s in the second Test against England. Subsequent to bowling out England for 391, India lost fast wickets in the second innings and went six wickets down before the finish of play on Sunday.

Both Kohli and Rohit seemed to signal towards Pant and Ishant to call attention to the terrible light to the umpires and maybe they additionally the two senior players likewise addressed why they are as yet proceeding to play under the awful light.
“Virat Kohli is getting really agitated. Rohit Sharma is joining him,” the commentators on Sony Sports Network broadcast said. The video of Kohli and Rohit’s reaction went viral on social light.
India had a lead of 154 runs in the match and will hope they can stretch it close to 200 before getting all out on Day 5 to give a challenging total for the hosts to chase down. But the tail-enders came to the rescue as Shami and Bumrah added 89 runs together to add India’s lead to 271 runs as captain Virat Kohli declared the innings. So, the target set for England is 272 runs in around 60-odd overs. And if bad light comes into play, the number of overs will reduce further. Chasing down such a challenging target in a couple of sessions looks unlikely, but if England decides to block whatever is thrown at them, they might go into a shell and that probably might work in India’s favour.
