The One Day Internationals started today, and the first match is going on between India and England. Before the match started, the toss was won by the captain of Indian cricket team, Virat Kohli who choose to bat first.
England had a great start with openers Jason Roy and Jonny Bairstow, who put together 73 runs. They were cruising in the opener of tr-series. The openers were milking the way and thus, a breakthrough was really needed at that time.
Therefore, our Indian skipper, Virat Kohli introduced the India’s chinaman skipper Kuldeep Yadav, who turned out to be a blessing in disguise for the Indian cricket team. Kuldeep Yadav not just limited the openers from scoring runs but also broke the partnership of Bairstow and Jason Roy.
Jason Roy was made to go back to the pavilion after the presence of mind and brilliant bowling by Kuldeep Yadav, the ace card of Virat Kohli. Jason Roy hit the ball with the force, however, it landed in the hands of Umesh Yadav.
Moving further, Kuldeep Yadav was able to dismiss Jonny Bairstow and Joe Root in front of the wickets. Jonny Bairstow wasn’t able to read the googly of Kuldeep Yadav . However, the umpire turned down the appeal.
Despite, the umpire’s decision Kuldeep Yadav appealed to go for a review, as he was very confident about the wicket and therefore, he pushed the skipper to go for the review. Virat Kohli trusted his confident and appealed for the review.
And it was OUT! The much in form Bairstow was dismissed, all thanks to the presence of mind and brilliant bowling by Yadav.
