Watch: Ashwin who? Jadeja bowls Haseeb Hameed with sharp-turning beauty

by Wisden Staff 2 minute read

Watch: Ravindra Jadeja sent back Haseeb Hameed with a cracking delivery to bring India back into the game on day five of the fourth Test at The Oval.

After battling it out for 192 balls to score 63, the batsman was unable to keep away a ball that ripped away after landing in the rough outside leg stump. A tentative poke of the bat wasn’t enough to save Hameed’s off stump as India landed their first blow after the lunch break.

Without Ravichandran Ashwin in the Test, the onus was on Jadeja to raise his game as India’s primary spinner, and he landed another punch not long after with the dismissal of Moeen Ali, who managed to edge the ball into the hands of Suryakumar Yadav at short leg.
