Virat Kohli’s reaction after Rishabh Pant’s dismissal in the post-Lunch session pretty summed up India’s Test in the ongoing Test at Headingley. England continued their onslaught after the Lunch session as they picked off from where they had left by getting rid of the dangerous Rishabh Pant.
Ollie Robinson had dealt India another body blow at the stroke of the Lunch break as Ajinkya Rahane nicked off to give Jos Buttler his fourth catch. The tall pacer continued his surge after the break as he dismissed Rishabh Pant for the third time in as many innings in this series.
Pant, who had nicked off to Ollie Robinson on the fifth morning of the Lord’s Test, never looked comfortable at the crease.
The swashbuckling southpaw looked extremely fidgety and survived a run-out call after he ran halfway down the crease for a non-existent run.
He was eventually dismissed by Ollie Robinson after he was caught on the crease by aimlessly throwing his hands at a short of a length delivery.
The ball kept on going across him and he followed it, eventually nicking off to Jos Buttler, who claimed his fifth consecutive catch.
And, Virat Kohli’s expression of utter disappointment pretty much summed up the kind of day that the visitors are having at Headingley. The visitors continue to sink further as Craig Overton landed a dual blow by dismissing Rohit Sharma, who fell to the pull shot for the third time this series, before nicking off Mohammed Shami on the very next delivery.
At the time of writing, India were languishing at 6-67 with Ravindra Jadeja as the only specialist batsmen left at the crease.
