New Delhi. Rohit Sharma has so far taken two life catches in the second innings of the fourth Test between India and England at the Oval. Twice England opener Rory Burns dropped his catch. How heavy Rohit’s catch is now for England will be known later. But former England captain Michael Vaughan must have had fun fielding Burns. He made a funny tweet about Burns. Vaughan writes that Rory Burns will be invited to Mary Fielding Academy this evening. Fans also scoffed at this.
Rory dropped Rohit’s catch on the second and third day of the match. Rohit Sharma and KL Rahul came down to bat after England’s first innings on the second day of the Oval Test. James Anderson was bowling the third over. The third ball of his over was slightly outside the off stump. Rohit tries to run him. But the ball stood on the second slip with the edge of the bat and went to the right of Rory Burns. But he could not see the ball properly and left this low catch. Anderson was heartbroken and the ball crossed boundaries. Rohit was playing at that time. On the run.

Rohit got 2 lives in the second innings
Then England opener Burns dropped Rohit’s catch again. This time the bowler was Oli Robinson. He was bowling the 27th over of the Indian innings. The last ball of his over was going off the stumps. Rohit tries to save him. But the ball quickly went backwards with the edge of the bat. Burns, standing on the slip, dived to catch, but he couldn’t catch the ball. This time the ball was away from him but to win a big match you have to take the same catch. At that time Rohit was playing for 311 runs. With this life-giving opportunity, Rohit has a chance to play a big innings.
Burns hit a fifty in the series
On the other hand, Rory Burns’ performance in this series has been mixed. He could not do much with the bat in the first Test in Nottingham. After that, he played an innings of 49 in Lord’s Test and 61 in Leeds. However, he can only run runs in the first innings of the Oval Test. England will expect his good batting in the second innings.
