Indians' bowlers enjoyed a good outing on Day 2 of the warm-up match against County Select XI with the visitors grabbing a lead of 91 runs in the first innings.

Indians ended their first innings on 311 and bowled out County Select XI for 220 with Haseeb Hameed celebrating his England call-up for the first two Tests against India with a well compiled 112.

Umesh Yadav took 3 for 22, while Mohammed Siraj picked up 2 for 32. Jasprit Bumrah, Shardul Thakur, Ravindra Jadeja and Akshar Patel picked up a wicket each for the Rohit Sharma-led team.

With Ishant Sharma and Mohammad Shami almost certain to play the first Test against England on August 4, Umesh and Siraj have certainly put their hand up to be considered for the third seamer's spot with Bumrah still not looking at his best.

Here are clips of the pace duo's wickets as shared by Durham Cricket on Twitter:

Indians would want their top order batsmen to cash in on the final day after a disappointing show in the first innings with the exception of KL Rahul who scored 101 before retiring out.
