India Vs England 5th Test Day 1: Ishant, Bumrah Rip Through England
Jennings accompanied Alastair Cook into the first innings of the last test of his cricketing career. He stayed in there for a decent 4 hours and got to a powerful fifty, well applauded by the crowd.
After tea however, a serene day at the Oval turned frantic. Jasprit Bumrah claimed the wicket of Cook on 71. Three balls later, he knocked down some pins by a venomous in-swinger that caught Joe Root lbw for 0. And, 5 balls from that point onward, Ishant Sharma had Jonny Bairstow caught behind with a ball that held its line outside off-stump.
This is how all of a sudden, England were all 134 for 4, from 133 for 1; courtesy of India’s quick bowlers accurate line & lengths. There were a million plays and misses, as Mohammed Shami beat Moeen Ali’s bat 4 times in a solitary over.
It’s really nice watching India’s key bowler Ravindra Jadeja back in the side during their fifth test match against England,though it is weird watching India without spin bowler Ravinchandra Ashwin.

The majority of that implied that India were attacking with full throttle, as once they got a wicket, more followed after, as its anticipated from a fast bowling assault that has such assortment.
Risk appeared even as the shadows extended at the ground, and the batsmen thought they had done what is needed to legitimise Joe Root’s choice to bat first. That is an immediate consequence of the risk every one of India’s bowlers, including Ravindra Jadeja, brought into this match instead of Ashwin, who is said to have exasperated his hip damage.
Jadeja’s precision took out Ben Stokes in the 78th over and Ishant got through from the opposite end, twice, finishing Moeen’s innings at 50 off 170 balls, and afterwards surging Sam Curran back to the pavilion for 0.
@imVkohli the 1st and the 4th test could have easily been won had it not for a dilapidated middle order. Why was pandya persistently chosen over proven batters. SA and this England series would have been India’s if proper decisions were made.
