During the fourth Test against England at The Oval, Rohit Sharma, India’s veteran opening batsman, took a sensational catch at the slip. As a batsman, the 34-year-old might not have delivered for India in the first innings.
His sheer presence on the field was made to count, however, as he took an easy catch at the slip. In the 25th over, Umesh Yadav bowled the third ball.
He made a remarkable comeback to the purest form of the game. He bowled England’s Test captain Joe Root, the leading run-scorer of the series.
Mehsh Yadav continued to play well with the ball at The Oval on Day 2. In the 19th over, Kohli took a sharp catch at slip to dismiss Overton.
The Indian seamers Jasprit Bumrah and Umesh Yadav kept the England batsmen in check in the following innings. The highlight of the game was Umesh’s superb delivery to Dawid Malan.
On Day 1, the southpaw looked solid at the crease after scoring a valuable 70 in the third Test. Five boundaries helped him score 31 runs before being bowled by Umesh Yadav.
