KL Rahul, Vijay also showed signs of good form with a respective half centuries.India were struggling at 5 for 2 with Dhawan and Pujara walking back to pavilion. Although at the end of the Day, India were 322 for 6 with Pandya and Karthik at the crease.

Before the start of the series against England, this is lone practice match for India.However Dhawan and Pujara failed to cash in as they didn't spend time at the crease.

However,Murali Vijay, skipper Virat Kohli, KL Rahul, Dinesh Karthik who is the most probable replacement of Saha all batted well. Ajinkya Rahane got a start but failed to convert it.

England who are yet to announce the squad, would be keeping a close eye on this practice match. They must have noticed Indian batsmen struggle against swing bowling.However it is note-worthy that England will announce their squad tomorrow at Lord's.

It would be interesting to see how thee Indian seamers bowl on a surface which definitely has got assistance for them.

You have a minor misspelling in the following sentence:

However it is note-worthy that England will announce their squad tommorow at Lord's.
It should be tomorrow instead of tommorow.
