WATCH: Virat Kohli grabs a blinder to dismiss Alastair Cook

Posted On / /

India is currently locking horns with England in the fourth Test of the 5-match series at The Ageas Bowl in Southampton. After winning the toss, England skipper Joe Root’s decision to bat first has back-fired as they lost their first wicket on the first bowl of the third over bowled by India pacer Jasprit Bumrah.

Opener Keaton Jennings was left clueless on the inswinging delivery by Bumrah and was trapped in front of the middle stump. However, his opening partner, Alastair Cook also couldn’t resist for long as he was dismissed by Hardik Pandya in the 18th over and England was down to 36/4.

Cook got out in a slightly uncharacteristic manner as the ball bowled to him wasn’t short enough to cut. The left-handed batsman followed the angle going away from him and cut it only to edge it to the Indian skipper, Virat Kohli, who took a blinder at the third slip. The ball was falling towards the left side of Kohli and he grabbed it with both hands near his toes.
