New Delhi. In the fourth Test against India at the Oval (India v England, 4th Test), India were bowled out for 111 in the first innings, but then Team India’s bowlers also put England in trouble. On the second day of the match, India lost 5 wickets to England by 2 runs. David Malan and Craig Overton also fell victim to Umesh Yadav and the hosts got into trouble. But this English middle-order batsman Oli Pope and wicketkeeper Johnny Bairstow suddenly turned the match around by batting. Bairstow and Pope hit fours, especially Shardul Tagore and Siraj.
It started raining fours from the 1st over which was bowled by Shardul Tagore. Shardul Tagore bowled a very poor delivery in the 1st over, which Pope took advantage of and he hit four fours in a row with his ball. Then, in the next over, Mohammad Siraj also followed in the footsteps of Shardul Tagore and Bairstow hit three fours off three balls in a row. Thus Bairstow and Pope hit 7 fours off 10 balls.
IND vs ENG: Indian bowlers hitting every 55th ball, 89-year best performance in England
Umesh Yadav also ate 3 fours
Once set, England’s middle-order batsmen also lost the line-length of Umesh Yadav, who was bowling well. In the 34th over, Bairstow hit 3 fours off 6 balls by Umesh Yadav. Let us tell you that after England took five wickets, the length of Indian bowlers suddenly changed. Instead of bowling good length, Indian bowlers were seen bowling full length and taking full advantage of Bairstow-Pope. Also, on the second day of the Oval Test, after the first hour, the pitch also becomes easier and suddenly the run starts to get faster. The same situation was seen on the first day of the game when Shardul Tagore hit 57 runs in a hurry. Shardul Tagore played only 37 balls. However, his weak line length in bowling can certainly beat Team India in the Oval Test.
