India are sinking deep in the rabbit hole of despair, having lost half their side for a puny 58 on the opening day at Headingley. All five batsmen back in the hut perished nicking behind as seamers James Anderson and Ollie Robinson put England firmly in the driving seat.
Cheteshwar Pujara and Ajinkya Rahane didn’t go searching for the drive and were deceived by the away movement, the other three victims – KL Rahul, Virat Kohli and Rishabh Pant – were guilty of flashing their blades at deliveries which should have been offered judgement at all costs.
5⃣ catches for Buttler!
