Deepti Sharma, India’s women’s all-rounder, will ring the bell at the Home of Cricket before the commencement of play on Day 4 of the ongoing Lord’s Test between India and England. The custom of an international cricketer or administrator ringing the bell during a Test match at Lord’s Cricket Ground began in 2007 and has continued since then. “Stay tuned for the commencement of Day four of the second #ENGvIND Test as #TeamIndia all-rounder @Deepti Sharma06 will ring the bell at Lord’s,” the BCCI Women’s official Twitter account said.
Farokh Engineer, a former Indian wicketkeeper and batsman, rang a five-minute bell before the commencement of the third day of the upcoming Test match.
In the first innings of the second Test, Mohammed Siraj spearheaded India’s charge to dismiss England for 391 runs. As James Anderson was removed on the final ball of day three, skipper Joe Root was left stranded on 180*.
England leads by 27 runs, and India will want to score as many runs as possible in the second innings when they take the field on Sunday.
