England v India

Watch: Rohit Sharma pulls second new ball long-hop down deep square’s throat

by Wisden Staff 5 minute read

Watch: Rohit Sharma’s masterful hundred against England on day three of the fourth Test at The Oval was brought to an end by Ollie Robinson with the second new ball.

Eighty overs into India’s second innings, Rohit was on 127 after 255 deliveries having compiled his first Test century away from India. Batting alongside Cheteshwar Pujara, he had moved India’s lead to 137 runs before England took the new ball.

Robinson took up the 81st over and delivered the prized wicket of Rohit immediately – the right-hander holed out to Chris Woakes, running around from fine leg to take the catch.

The Sussex’s quick’s success didn’t stop there – he finished the over with another wicket, removing Pujara after the right-hander’s inside edge found the hands of Moeen Ali in the slip cordon via the thigh pad.
