Umesh Yadav put the icing on the cake by taking out lynchpin Joe Root in the dying throes of day one of the fourth Test at The Oval. It needed something special to dislodge the run-machine, and the pacer, who replaced Ishant Sharma in the playing eleven, was up to the task. His scintillating inducker jagged a fraction off the good length to penetrate through the tiny gap between the bat and pad and rattle the off-stump.
ðŸ’¥ MASSIVE WICKET! ðŸ’¥
Joe Root is gone, bowled by a nip-backer from Umesh Yadav! Superb delivery. India needed that and England are 52-3. #ENGvIND ðŸ´ó §ó ¢ó ¥ó ®ó §ó ¿ðŸ‡®ðŸ‡³
