Have a look at Washington Sundar’s wicket off Mohammed Siraj:

Siraj bowled a brilliant bouncer, it was fast and the length of the delivery forced the southpaw to have a go at it which eventually ended in the all-rounder from Tamil Nadu nicking it to straight to skipper Rohit Sharma.

While the opening bowlers impressed with their bowling, the batsmen failed to get going in the first innings as openers Rohit Sharma, Mayank Agarwal along with Cheteshwar Pujara fell early as they were dismissed for 9(33), 28(35) and 21(47) respectively.

Thanks to KL Rahul’s fantastic century knock along with Ravindra Jadeja’s 75 off 146 deliveries, Indians managed to get 311 runs on the board. In reply, the County XI, after suffering three early blows found themselves at 44-3 at Lunch on Day 2.
