New Delhi. The fourth match of the five-match series between India and England is being played at the Oval. England captain Joe Root won the toss and elected to bowl first. The Indian team went down to bat but the opener could not find a foot in the crease. In this match, Indian opener Rohit Sharma lost the wicket with a short ball. This is the fourth Test match in a row, where Rohit has been dismissed for playing a pool shot. Earlier, Rohit had given wickets in Nottingham, Lord’s and Leeds in the same pattern.
In the Oval Test, India’s wicket fell in the form of Rohit Sharma for a total of 28 runs. Rohit managed just 11 runs and fell into the trap of Chris Oakes’ magic ball. Rohit hit a four off 27 balls. Oakes bowled a great short ball, Rohit was caught in the net again and caught behind the wicket by Johnny Bearstore. Oakes hits the ball and Rohit raises his leg to play the shot, but now the ball changes and he takes an extra bounce. The ball hit Rohit’s bat, but then it reached the wicketkeeper.
