Rabindra Jadeja (1159 off 59 balls) Robinson and skipper Virat Kohli (44 off balls) tried to get Anderson back on track with a four with the help of a beautiful cover drive.
Jadeja was out leg before Oaks caught the ball. In this over of Oaks, Ajinkya Rahane was also given a leg before but the decision in DRS went in India’s favor. Rahane couldn’t take advantage of this and when the umpire’s finger was pointed at the LBW application in the next over of the Oaks, the DRS didn’t have a chance either. Rahane also failed to open the scoring, which made his place in the XI look dangerous for the last Test match.
